How Antioxidant-Enriched Multivitamins Help Cystic Fibrosis

This vitamin is remarkable in that it lowered pulmonary exacerbation

Overall, the antioxidant-enriched multivitamin supplementation was considered safe and well-tolerated by the participants of the study, resulting in increased antioxidant concentrations, as well as reduced inflammation after just 4 weeks. The treatment was also associated with a lower risk of initial pulmonary exacerbation. “While more research certainly needs to be done to find a treatment that delivers a sustained anti-inflammatory effect, we believe the fact that this antioxidant supplement prolonged the time patients had before their first illness is meaningful. It offers a simple, relatively inexpensive means for restoring and maintaining normal antioxidant levels in people who would otherwise have trouble doing so,” concluded Sagel.
