In brief: No evidence for this

It is thought that antioxidant vitamins might prevent disease progression.
However, controlled clinical trials are needed prior to their being recommended for the routine management of patients with stable copd. Regarding high-caloric dietary supplements and appetite stimulants for malnutrition in severe copd, there is no evidence supporting long-term benefit.
