I believe there are several foods that are helpful to strengthen the immune system and reduce inflammation.
Foods rich in Vit C - citrus, broccoli, squash and brussel sprouts
Wheat germ for vit E
B6 - chickpeas, fish, poultry, barley, sunflower seeds, sweet potatoes
Magnesium - oysters, spinach, halibut, apricots
Omega 3's said to reduce lung inflammation, so salmon, or oily fish.
And apparently onions and scallions reduce inflammation.
My daughter used to have exercise induced asthma which was particularly bad when she was skating (she was a figure skater). I used to find that a rich broth (homemade) helped her out.
I'm not to up on the mechanics of asthma...which comes first the inflammation or the mucus? Maybe some of them will help specifically. I have some interesting nutrition books which may have something more specific...let you know.
