Antiasthmatic (Moringa Seeds)

Asthma is an inflammatory disorder of the airways. It is a disease where the inflammation of the airways causes the restriction of air into and out of the lungs. Asthma is associated with shortness of breath, chest tightness, coughing, and wheezing. Unfortunately there is no cure for asthma, although symptoms sometimes decrease over time. Asthma can be caused by inhaled allergens. These allergens can be from a number of things-pollens, molds, pet dander, and dust mites. Things such as exercise, cold air, smoke, food, drugs, pollutants, and respiratory infections can also bring on asthma. Most initial treatments however, are aimed specifically on avoiding the things that trigger the condition such as pet dander, dust mites, molds, pollens, and smoke. By avoiding these allergens, no medication is needed to treat the condition. If these allergens are unavoidable, that is where medication is needed.
