Die obstruktiven Lungenerkrankungen Asthma bronchiale und COPD haben unter anderem chronisch entzündete Bronchien mit Zellinfiltraten gemeinsam. Zahlreiche unspezifische Symptome bei Asthma bronchiale und COPD wie Müdigkeit und Infektanfälligkeit können orthomolekularen Mängeln zugrunde liegen. Besonders Selen, Zink, Magnesium, Vitamin C, Vitamin D und Omega-3-Fettsäuren sollten bei Asthma bronchiale und COPD ausreichend aufgenommen werden.
