Caffeine can help Asthma

I've known for a while that drinking caffeine can give you a boost during your workout. Not only does it give you energy, but it numbs the pain your muscles feel when working hard so that you can push yourself longer and harder than without your cuppa joe beforehand.

The June issue of Women's Health magazine reports that this same daily stimulant may have a double bonus for asthma sufferers who work out. Drinking a cup of coffee before working out can reduce the inflammation of the lungs while working out and help to abate symptoms. Who knew that a little caffeine could have so many hidden health perks?
