Lung Support

Inhale…exhale! Our lungs are vital organs, tirelessly working to ensure we receive the oxygen needed for survival while expelling carbon dioxide with every breath. However, various factors and conditions can impair lung function, leading to a decreased quality of life.

This blog explores the reasons behind lung weakness, delves into different conditions that affect the lungs, and offers insights into supporting lung health.

Reasons Behind Lung Weakness

Environmental Factors: Pollution, exposure to toxic chemicals, and inhaling particulate matter can damage lung tissue and airways, leading to chronic conditions. Living or working in areas with poor air quality significantly increases the risk of developing respiratory problems.

Infections: Respiratory infections, whether viral, bacterial, or fungal, can temporarily or permanently weaken lung capacity. Severe infections like pneumonia can cause lasting damage to the lung's air sacs.

Chronic Diseases: Conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and pulmonary fibrosis involve chronic inflammation or scarring of lung tissues, affecting their ability to function effectively.

Conditions Affecting the Lungs

Asthma: Characterised by inflamed and narrowed airways, asthma symptoms include wheezing, shortness of breath, and coughing. Triggers can vary widely, from allergens and cold air to exercise and stress.

COPD: This term encompasses several progressive lung diseases, including emphysema and chronic bronchitis. COPD causes obstructed airflow from the lungs, making it hard to breathe.

Supporting Lung Health

Quit Smoking: The single most effective action for lung health is to stop smoking. Quitting can halt lung damage and significantly reduce the risk of developing chronic lung conditions.

Stay Active: Regular exercise helps strengthen the respiratory muscles, making it easier for the lungs to supply oxygen to the body.

Maintain a Healthy Diet: Consuming a diet rich in antioxidants from fruits and vegetables can protect lung tissue from damage caused by free radicals.

Monitor Air Quality: Reduce exposure to pollutants by staying indoors on days with high air pollution levels and using air purifiers to clean indoor air.

Breathing Exercises: Practices such as pursed-lip breathing and diaphragmatic breathing can improve lung capacity and ease breathing difficulties.

Supplements: Adding a supplement like Provita’s FlavoNAC that boosts lung health by removing accumulated toxins and reducing lung inflammation

FlavoNAC™ is an ortho molecular formula targeting free radicals affecting lung health by improving lung blood circulation, removing accumulated toxins, and reducing lung inflammation.


- Anti inflammatory and cellular defence Lung health and cardiovascular health

- REDOX signalling and mitochondria homeostasis

- Control of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS)

- Reduces oxidative stress (OS)


● Alpinia galanga (Greater Galangal) is an ayurvedic herb rich in phenolic compounds with antioxidant properties. The rhizomes are used to address various conditions including rheumatism, colds, catarrh, whooping cough, ulcers, bad breath, throat infections, respiratory diseases, dyspepsia, and fever

● NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine) is an important antioxidant essential for reducing oxidative damage and mitochondrial dysregulation. NAC is also important for lung health affected by increased numbers of reactive oxygen species such as in the case of COPD

● Hesperidin and Quercetin are antioxidant flavonoids, the former being important for lung health problems including respiratory diseases, while the later is well known for its anti-inflammatory, antihypertensive, vasodilator effects, anti-obesity, anti-hypercholesterolemic and anti-atherosclerotic activities

In conclusion, while various factors can lead to lung weakness and multiple conditions, there are effective ways to support lung health. By understanding the risks and implementing proactive measures, it's possible to maintain healthy lung function and improve overall well-being. Remember, taking steps toward better lung health is never too late.
