Caffeine to help asthmatics.


Here is a interesting on the effect of caffeine and people with asthma.  It's actually a positive effect as caffeine is found in this study to have a bronchodialation affect on people with bronchoconstriction.  My conclusion, if you have respiratory issues drink tea or coffee on a consistent basis for maintenance it could work.  Wonder though if your having an attack if you could down a Mountain Dew quick to get some relief?

Here is the link to the study: Caffeine helps Asthmatics.

Just came across your site looking for the information about albuterol lowering potassium.

It's funny, but I remember the caffeine helping asthmatics trick from an episode of Quantum Leap, where out hero Scott Bakula, has to help out a baby in a pinch and gives the baby a bottle of coffee.

Thanks for the info.
