Fiber supplements positively altered the gut microbiota - a community of good and bad bacteria living in the bowel - and in turn reduced airway inflammation in asthmatics. As part of the study, 17 patients with poorly controlled asthma, despite the use of inhaled steroid medication,were given 12 grams of daily inulin - a soluble fiber supplement.The fiber works by suppressing the overactive immune system that exists in people with asthma.
