Green tea

This is a good choice for lung health due to its high levels of antioxidants, including quercetin, “which acts like a natural antihistamine and slows down the release of histamines, reduces inflammation and protects the lungs from irritation,” explains celebrity chef and nutritionist Serena Poon. “In addition to the fluids it provides, green tea also has super high levels of the antioxidants flavanol and epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG),” Maucere notes.

Vitamin C foods

Research suggests that dietary vitamin C can protect against COPD, independent of smoking history. And other studies have suggested that vitamin C might have a protective effect against lung cancer. Poon suggests grabbing your daily dose of vitamin C from healthy lung foods such as “orange-colored produce like oranges, papayas, pumpkins, carrot, apples and red bell peppers.”
