Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases in modern society. Up to 200 million people suffer from asthma in the world and there is increasing evidence to suggest that its incidence and severity are increasing day by day. In the last 10 years, asthma cases have risen 50% worldwide. Asthma is a chronic lung condition that is characterised by difficulty in breathing that is caused by obstruction of the airways. It can develop at any age. During an asthma attack, spasms in the muscles surrounding the bronchi constrict, impeding the outward passage of air. Symptoms of an asthma attack include coughing, wheezing, tightness in the chest and difficulty in breathing. An “attack” can last for minutes or several hours. Typically, an attack begins within minutes after exposure to a triggering agent. Some patients have only occasional or ‘seasonal’ symptoms, while others have daily symptoms.
There are two forms of asthma stimuli -- allergic and non-allergic; An Allergic attack is normally triggered from exposure to allergies or irritants. Common asthma-provoking allergens include cold air, animal secretions, sugar, pollen, pets, chemicals, drugs, dust, mites, environmental pollutants, food additives, MSG, fumes and tobacco smoke to name a few. A Non-Allergic attack is normally triggered by emotional stress or tension and includes anxiety, adrenal disorders and need for attention.

It reduces allergic manifestations thereby prevent seasonal attacks. As Asma-Aid is plant based it is devoid of any harmful side effects and normally does not interact with any other medications that are already being administered. Completely safe for long-term use.
