August 31, 2020 - 91% of the World’s Population Needs to Nutritionally Support Their Lungs


91% of the World’s Population Needs to Nutritionally Support Their Lungs

August 31, 2020 Puzzle Piece

Each year, the American Heart Association (AHA) works in conjunction with the National Institutes of Health and other government agencies to deliver the most up-to-date statistics related to heart disease, stroke, and the cardiovascular risk factors. And each year, the numbers keep getting worse.
It’s too easy for us to take our lung health for granted since we breathe whether we’re aware of it or not. Just about everyone on the planet is breathing unhealthy air. Most people don’t find out the lungs are compromised until they become symptomatic expressive.
Most Recent Worldwide Statistics
  • 200 million people suffer from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and 3 million die from it each year, making it the third leading cause of death worldwide.
  • 10.4 million people develop tuberculosis and 1.6 million die from it each year, making it the most common lethal infectious disease.
  • 1.76 million people die from lung cancer each year, making it the deadliest cancer.
  • 334 million people suffer from asthma, making it the most common chronic disease of childhood. It affects 14 percent of children globally − and rising.
  • Pneumonia kills millions of people each year making it a leading cause of death in the very young and very old.
  • 91% of the world’s population live in places where toxic air quality exceeds WHO guidelines.
Lung Health Issues Are Expensive
In 2010, the cost of COPD in the USA was approximately $49.9 billion, which includes $20 billion in indirect costs and $30 billion in direct health care expenditures. The CDC anticipates a $49 billion bill in 2020, averaging at about $4,000 per patient annually.
It is not widely realized that asthma causes about 489,000 deaths per year or more than 1,300 deaths per day [1]. Recent evidence indicates that children with asthma may have abnormal lung growth and are at risk for developing lifelong respiratory compromise and COPD.
As of 2013, the American Thoracic Society stated the annual per-person medical cost of asthma was $3,266. Of that, $1,830 was for prescriptions, $640 for office visits, $529 for hospitalizations, $176 for hospital outpatient visits and $105 for emergency room care. Asthma-related mortality cost $29 billion per year, representing on average 3,168 deaths.
Tuberculosis has a 17% fatality rate globally. There has yet to be a recent study calculating the cost of treatment on a national or global level. However, a study by Peter Oh, et al on “A systematic synthesis of direct costs to treat and manage tuberculosis disease applied to California alone in 2015”.
The average direct cost of treating and managing a TB case was $34,600 in 2015. The average cost of a multidrug-resistant TB case was $110,900. Health care spending for treating and case managing TB patients in California amounted to approximately $75.6 million for the 2133 new cases reported in 2015.
According to the National Institutes of Health, lung cancer costs are projected to reach at least $158 billion in 2020 just in the United States. The projections were based on the most recent data available on cancer incidence, survival, and costs of care.
In 2010, medical costs associated with cancer were $124.6 billion, with the highest costs associated with breast cancer ($16.5 billion), followed by colorectal cancer ($14 billion), lymphoma ($12 billion), lung cancer ($12 billion) and prostate cancer ($12 billion).
It is well known, doctors and patients, can lower these numbers just by practicing preventative care and maintenance. This includes making sure you get the balance of lung-protecting nutrients every day.
Key Nutrients for Optimal Lung Health (Opti-Lung)
Just like your heart, your lungs have a key set of nutrients that help you get the most out of every breath.  Test for Opti-Heart also.

Vitamin A - This essential nutrient acts as a natural beta carotene. Vitamin A is essential for growth and development of cells and tissues. Vitamin A plays a substantial role in the respiratory epithelium and the lung. During moderate vitamin A deficiency, the incidence for diseases of the respiratory tract is considerably increased and repeated respiratory infections. Supplementing with vitamin A is shown to reduce the risk of developing related diseases and optimize the health of mucus membranes, which your lungs use to protect them.  Consider the addition of Essential DAK1K2.

Select Vitamins & Minerals - This formula provides vitamin B6, calcium, magnesium, iodine and manganese for overall immune health and optimal body function. They are all parts of the intricate puzzle connected to your lungs.
Iodine plays a critical role in protecting your body from toxins. Magnesium is involved in countless bodily functions, including regulating muscle and nerve function, and blood pressure. Your respiratory system needs an adequate supply of magnesium to keep you breathing and constantly clearing out potentially harmful molecules.
Select Herbs - Opti-Lung takes advantage of including lotus, rutin, kelp, L-tyrosine, ginger, L-cysteine HCl monohydrate, pleurisy seed extract, Korean ginseng, glycine, yellow dock, uva ursi and blue cohosh. Each one of these research-backed nutrients either helps your body’s overall function--which indirectly affects respiratory function--or directly aids in the overall health of and protects your lungs.
Glandulars - Opti-Lung takes advantage of including safely sourced lung, thymus, pancreas, duodenum, spleen, kidney, and stomach extracts from bovine glandulars out of Argentina. Together, they provide a complete array of tissue support for your lungs.
In Chinese medicine, the lung refers to the whole respiratory system and includes the nose and sinuses. Since most human energy is derived from oxygen in the air, the lung is primarily responsible for physical vitality and is said to govern qi.  Breathing clears 80% of toxins from our body.
Opti-Lung Glandulars
Oral ingestion of animal glandular material is thought to strengthen the corresponding human gland by increasing its tone, function, and/or activity.  The glandulars in Opti-Lung elevate it to an increased therapeutic level. By extracting nutrients, enzymes, hormones, etc. from the glands, these ingredients help replace what your body is not producing efficiently on its own.
Take two capsules daily or otherwise directed by a health professional.
Yours in Health and Wellness,
