This Plant Compound Reverses COPD Damage In Lungs, According To Research – HealthyTipsAdvice

While Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an umbrella term for a range of progressive lung diseases, that doesn’t make it any less serious. 

Fortunately, we’re here with a plant compound that can help! 

That plant compound? Beta carotene!

If you’re not familiar with COPD, know that it may affect up to 30 million Americans each year, and as recently as 2014 was the third leading cause of death in the United States. 

While nearly 90% of COPD sufferers have smoked at one point – 10% have not, meaning you could still be at risk, even if you’ve never smoked, and genetic or environmental factors can place you at increased risk.

Of particular interest is new research that suggests vitamin A and beta carotene can reverse COPD damage.

These following foods, high in beta carotene, just got another argument in their favor:

  • Sweet potato
  • Carrots
  • Dark green leafy vegetables
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Squash
  • Cantaloupe
  • Sweet red peppers
  • Dried apricots
  • Peas
  • Broccoli
