9 Supplements for Lung Health
Published: 7/10/2013

The ability to breathe properly is fundamental to good health. Don't take the health of your respiratory system for granted, even if you are not a smoker - consider these supplements, which can help to promote lung health:

  1. Daily multivitamin. Look for products containing 15,000 IU of mixed carotenoids, including beta-carotene.
  2. Vitamin C. This water-soluble vitamin can provide additional protection against the oxidative effects of air pollution and smoke.
  3. Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). This powerful antioxidant can improve the use of oxygen at the cellular level.
  4. Cordyceps and reishi mushrooms. These Chinese medicinal mushrooms may be useful in promoting optimal respiratory efficiency and protecting against chronic lung disease.
  5. B vitamins. Especially B6, may help protect against lung cancer by supporting immune function.
  6. Vitamin D. This fat-soluble hormone may help prevent the cellular changes that promote lung cancer.
  7. Mullein. The flowers and leaves of this Mediterranean native can help relieve dry, bronchial coughs and help alleviate chest congestion.
  8. Zhu ling (Polyporus umbellatus). This mushroom may be particularly useful in protecting against lung cancer: Research suggests it may help stimulate the body's immune response against lung tumors.
