Supplements to Help Customers with COPD

According to the American Lung Association, over 15 million people have been diagnosed with COPD, though millions more may unknowingly have the disease. COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) refers to a group of chronic lung conditions including chronic bronchitis, refractory asthma, and emphysema. It can cause long-term disability and early death. But there’s something you can do about it. Read on!

The COPD Foundation claims that people with the condition could need 430-720 more calories a day than other people due to the energy required while breathing. There is no known cure for these lung problems, but nutrition can absolutely make a difference in the lives of those who have trouble breathing because of COPD. That means… supplements can help!

In addition to medical treatments, here are some vitamins and minerals that may help people manage their condition:

Vitamins A, C, D, E

According to a study, individuals with the highest intake of Vitamin A had a 52% lower risk of COPD. Low levels of Vitamin C have been associated with increases in shortness of breath, wheezing and mucus. The sunshine nutrient, Vitamin D, has proven itself to improve lung function. Research has suggested that taking a Vitamin D3 supplement for COPD can help protect against moderate to severe flare-ups.


Studies show that curcumin, which is found in turmeric, is a natural anti-inflammatory that helps calm COPD airway inflammation.

Ginseng, Omega-3s, Dietary Fiber

Alternative health advocates recommend ginseng supplements to promote lung strength, while omega-3 fatty acids can reduce inflammation for people with COPD. Fatty acids are found in fish, seeds and nuts, but some people with COPD might benefit most from taking fish oil supplements to ensure adequate intake.

Calcium and Magnesium

Did you know that some COPD medications may cause depleted calcium levels? This makes it especially vital for those with COPD to make calcium-rich foods part of their diet, but it might be necessary for them to take calcium supplements to guarantee adequacy. Similarly, some medications can intercept the body’s ability to absorb magnesium. It is always wise to speak with a licensed physician before taking any supplement, but magnesium in particular, as it may interact with some medications and cause side effects.
