Passion fruit peel can "significantly" improve the symptoms of asthma, a study has claimed.

Scientists tested the peel in powder form on a group of asthmatics and found after four weeks it cured breathlessness in 90 per cent and cut wheezing in about 80 per cent.

The skin of the fruit is high in chemical compounds and antioxidants which cut blood pressure.

There are 400million asthma sufferers in the world.

Study leaders at the University of Arizona with Mashhad Medical University in Iran, said: "It may be a valuable supplement in management of asthma."
