How prebiotics can help people with exercise-induced asthma
If exercise-induced asthma affects you, prebiotics may help. A study at Nottingham Trent University found that prebiotics greatly improved symptoms in a group of physically active asthma sufferers. Researchers believe prebiotics affect the activity of ‘good’ bacteria in the gut, dampening allergic and inflammatory responses. Prebiotics are found in a range of foods, including raw garlic, onions and green bananas (use them in a smoothie) or you can take a supplement.
