Nutrition Hints
Omega-3 for Allergic, Asthmatic Children

Omega-3 fatty acid supplementation in early childhood may help prevent the development of allergic and asthmatic symptoms that include coughing.

Children given omega-3s significantly experience reduced prevalence of coughing. Omega-3 reduces an inflammatory substance that heightens cough sensitivity. By reducing this substance, symptoms are lessened.

House dust mite reduction also helps. Researchers conclude that omega-3 supplementation and reduction of house dust mites may significantly prevent allergic sensitivities and airway diseases in early childhood.

[For more information about dust mites and allergy, check out the new Searchable Table Talk Hints Database. Recently added hints include information about nattokinase for high blood pressure, exercise and arthritis, dyslexia in adults, a warning about glucosamine, antioxidants and childhood cancer, why seniors should be taking vitamin E, the best time of day to exercise, and how melatonin is helpful for asthmatics.]
