What is bronchitis?

Bronchitis is inflammation of the bronchi, the airways connecting the windpipe to the lungs. This results in a cough that produces a lot of mucus. Other symptoms include fever, breathing difficulties, and wheezing. Bronchitis usually develops from a viral infection such as a cold or influenza, and is aggravated by atmospheric pollution, and by cold or humid air.

There is a distinction to do between acute and chronic bronchitis:

  • Acute bronchitis is usually due to a viral infection, such as a cold, that starts in your nose or sinuses and spreads to the airways. Acute bronchitis usually lasts a few days, but you may have a cough for weeks afterward.
  • Chronic bronchitis, on the other hand, occurs most often in people who smoke and is known as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Chronic bronchitis is characterized by a persistent cough. The mucus that is produced by the inflamed airways eventually causes scar tissue to form in the lungs, making breathing difficult.

Supplements for bronchitis

Vitamin C is the best supplement against both bronchitis. It will reduce inflammation, and enhance the immune response. Furthermore, being antioxidant, it will diminish the damages made free radicals produced by the inflammatory response.

It is good to note that it is better to take vitamin C on a regular basis to prevent bronchitis to occur. It works better when taken on a long-term basis.

When a bronchitis occurs, you can still use vitamin C, but some essential oils (in inhalations) or herbs (in infusion) might be more valuable to alleviate symptoms. See the pages Herbs for bronchitis and Essential oils for bronchitis.
