I’m Very New To This. Are There Any Specific Vitamins Were Supposed To Be Taking For COPD?

I’m wondering if certain vitamins make it easier to get up mucus. Also I’d there a place to go for these questions. Health to all.

My husband and myself have discovered a product that helps with COPD, we purchased it on Amazon, made by CanPrev Healthy Lungs, helps repair the free radicals. , You can read on it, it has made a difference for both of us. Sorry can't seem to take a good picture.

Many of us take vitamin D, but this is probably a good question for both your PCP and your pulmonologist, with answers based on your history, blood tests and other evidence. I suggest you go to www.copdfoundation.org and look through the resources listed on the Learn More tab. There's a tremendous amount of information there.

Mucus production and getting rid of it is a huge issue. You'll find many threads on this and many other forums regarding the issue, the various conditions that produce mucus and the methods, techniques and aids that people use. I encourage you to pursue them.

Gloria, you can look into devices that may help. I use a device called Accapella Flutter device. You breathe into it and it creates vibrations down into your lungs breaking up the mucus and making it easier to cough it out. Do a search on it and watch the video. You may want to ask your DR if this might help you. It's not that expensive.
