Inulin Fiber Supplement May Help Ease Asthma Symptoms

Approximately 300 million worldwide suffer from asthma. A recent study suggests that taking an inulin fiber supplement may help improve asthma symptoms by improving gut microbiota in asthmatics.


For this study, stable asthmatics were given daily supplements of the soluble fiber inulin. The researchers monitored changes in asthma control, lung function, and gut microbiota following supplementation.


They found that the fiber supplements were associated with a change in gut microbiota, which was then associated with a positive effect on asthma control and less airway inflammation. The best results were noted in people who did not have good control over their asthma at the beginning of the study.


Researchers from the University of Newcastle conducted the study. It was presented on March 27, 2017, at the Thoracic Society for Australia and New Zealand Annual Scientific Meeting.


Inulin is a soluble dietary fiber that is non-digestible. It passes through to the large intestine and becomes healthy intestinal micro flora. Dandelion root, chicory root and elecampane root all have high concentrations of inulin.


Previous studies suggest that inulin helps strengthen the immune system, enhance the absorption of minerals such as calcium and magnesium, improve digestion and lower cholesterol.
