Some runners find that exercise brings on minor asthma attacks. Omega-3 fatty acids combat this by preventing the airways from narrowing and increasing lung volume by up to 53% according to experts.

An Indiana University study found asthmatic runners benefitted from a dose of caffeine an hour before exercise.
