The hidden heart attack-asthma-vitamin connection

Numbers never lie, the old saying goes, but they don’t tell the whole truth, either.

So while it’s true that 1 out of every 12 people in the U.S. who are reading this have asthma, the good news is not all of you will have a heart attack.

Did that alarm you? It wouldn’t be a surprise, since mainstream medicine has not done a very good job of warning you about the heart attack risk for those who take asthma medication.

Research shows that by age 70, Nitric Oxide production declines by up to 75 percent! But supporting healthy N-O levels isn’t as easy as taking a nitric oxide pill. The body needs nutrients to produce N-O on its own — and that’s why… MORE⟩⟩


An increased risk

If you weren’t in the room, you probably never heard the warning presented at a meeting of the American Heart Association, which told attendees that those who have asthma and take daily medication to control breathing difficulties run an increased risk of a heart attack according to the research.

“Physicians should do all they can to control every other modifiable cardiovascular risk factors in patients with asthma,” warns researcher Matthew C. Tattersall,  who teaches medicine in the Division of Cardiology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison, Wisconsin.

Tattersall’s study demonstrates that if you have asthma and take medicine for it daily, you are 60 percent more likely to be felled by a heart attack, stroke or some other heart problem during the next 10 years.

It’s the inflammation

The problem is linked to the inflammation associated with asthma. That same inflammation detrimentally affects your heart and arteries.

If that’s true, it’s not clear why there’s such a great risk for people who take medication.

Meanwhile, a study in Minnesota that looked at the link between heart problems and asthma has come to a similar conclusion. That research, which looked at the cardiovascular health of more than a thousand people, found a much higher risk of heart attacks in people with asthma.

“Chest discomfort or pain can be confused as a symptom of asthma, but because asthma increases the risk of heart attack and treatments for each are quite different, patients need to take chest pain and other symptoms of heart attack seriously and seek prompt treatment,” says researcher Young J. Juhn, who is with the  Mayo Clinic.

So whether it’s medicine or just inflammation from asthma, you need to be aware.

Peak D3

When you step out into the sunlight, your body begins the process of making vitamin D. But getting the ideal amount can be difficult because some of us can’t effectively absorb it. That’s just one of many reasons the vitamin D deficiency is an epidemic… MORE⟩⟩


Vitamins linked to lowering inflammation and improving asthma

Asthma gets worse with nutrient deficiencies, and there are few nutrients we’re more deficient in than vitamin C. In fact, people with asthma are chief among those who tend to be low on the vitamin.

Did you know that vitamin C is a powerful antihistamine? It has no side effects, and it enhances immune response. You need at least 3,000 mg a day of vitamin C (it’s best to spread it out and take 1 g three times per day). If you have exercise-induced asthma, take 2 grams a half hour before you exercise.

Vitamin D is also beneficial to people with asthma. A review of studies published in the journal Cureus in 2017 concluded that vitamin D can be effective as a complementary therapy in asthma management.

One study published in the Cochrane Library (a UK medical research database) found that asthma sufferers who took vitamin D reduced their severe asthma attacks — the kind that requires immediate medical attention — by 50 percent.

Vitamin D reduces respiratory inflammation. Vitamin D’s ability to ease inflammation also explains why it can help people with asthma — a disease caused by inflammation in the airways.
