Teens with overweight or obesity and uncontrolled asthma who consumed two nutritional supplement bars daily and attended nutrition and exercise classes experienced improved lung function and a better quality of life without losing weight, according to results of a small pilot clinical trial published in The FASEB Journal.
“A common form of asthma in those with obesity is poorly understood and difficult to treat. In some studies, this form of asthma had been shown to be associated with poor dietary habits and insulin resistance,” study researcher Joyce McCann, PhD, director of the Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute (CHORI) bar project, told Infectious Diseases in Children.
