Study: Fish Oil Fights Asthma

Friday, 28 Apr 2006 12:00 AM

Daily fish-oil supplements appear to help combat asthma, according to a study at Indiana University.

For three weeks Dr. Timothy Mickleborough and his colleagues investigators gave real fish-oil capsules or placebos to 16 people with exercise-induced asthma and then tested them on a treadmill.

Those getting the real fish-oil showed a 64 percent improvement in lung function and required emergency inhalers 31 percent less often than those on placebo pills..

The researchers believe the healthy fats in the fish oil reduce inflammation in the airways.

"Our data suggest that fish oil supplementation may represent a potentially beneficial nonpharmacologic intervention," the Indiana team concludes.

The study appears in the journal, Chest.
