Breathe easier with remarkable supplement

When you think of algae, you probably picture green scum floating in ponds and lakes. Scientists are now looking at this simple organism as a new, natural treatment for exercise-induced asthma.

If you have this type of asthma, vigorous activity can set off a chain reaction in your airways that leaves you dizzy, tired, and wheezing. It's a common problem for 80 to 90 percent of asthma sufferers.

The specific alga scientists are studying Dunaliella salina only grows in saltwater ponds in California, Hawaii, and Australia and was first used as a natural food dye. When the European Scientific Committee on Food tested Dunaliella, they found it to be nontoxic and a natural source of beta carotene.

Scientists have long argued whether antioxidants, like beta carotene, can help people with asthma. Researchers decided to test a daily dose of this beta carotene-rich alga. They found that 64 mg of Dunaliella prevented exercise-induced asthma attacks in over half of the people with asthma.

You can find Dunaliella algae supplements in your local health food store or on the Internet. Most producers extract the natural carotenoids, like beta carotene, alpha-carotene, and lutein, from the algae and package it in capsules.

If you're affected by exercise-induced asthma, you might want to give this natural remedy a try. But remember, if you have any undesirable side effects, stop immediately.
