4 Best Supplements To Alleviate Seasonal Allergy Symptoms
As a child, I suffered from terrible allergy symptoms. My mother did not know about supplements that may alleviate seasonal allergy symptoms. Instead, she would take me to the doctor who wrote out various prescriptions to mask my multiple symptoms.
Common Seasonal Allergy Symptoms
Common seasonal allergy symptoms include:
- Post-nasal drip.
- Excess mucus production.
- A runny nose.
- Itchy, watery eyes.
- Scratchy throat.
- Tickle/irritation in the ears.
Supplements To Alleviate Seasonal Allergy Symptoms
Back in the 1970’s, when I was a child with allergies, natural remedies and supplements were available, but a minority of people knew about them, and they received minimal scientific scrutiny. Thankfully, things are beginning to change, and researchers are showing that supplements work. The following is a list of the four best supplements demonstrated through high-level scientific research to alleviate seasonal allergy symptoms.
Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially your digestive system. We usually think of these as germs that cause diseases. But your body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called “good” or “helpful” bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy.
A placebo-controlled, double-blinded, and randomised study demonstrated that a probiotic containing a Bifidobacteria longum bacteria was able of significantly improving Allergic Rhinitis symptoms and Quality of Life in children with pollen-induced AR and intermittent asthma.
A randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial results suggest that Lactobacillus acidophilus can alleviate the symptoms of perennial allergic rhinitis
I recommend trying Probiotic Supreme DF™ which contains both Bifidobacteria longum and Lactobacillus acidophilus.
2. Black Cumin (N.sativa)
Nigella sativa (black caraway, also known as black cumin, nigella, and kalonji) is an annual flowering plant in the family Ranunculaceae, native to south and southwest Asia.
A double-blind clinical trial showed that N. sativa could reduce the presence of the nasal mucosal congestion, nasal itching, runny nose, sneezing attacks, turbinate hypertrophy, and mucosal pallor.
I recommend trying Life Extension Black Cumin Seed Oil.
Curcumin is a bright yellow chemical produced by some plants. It is the principal curcuminoid of turmeric (Curcuma longa), a member of the ginger family, Zingiberaceae.
I recommend Curcum-Evail™ by Designs for Health.
4. Tinospora cordifolia
Tinospora cordifolia, which is known by the common names heart-leaved moonseed, Guduchi and giloy, is a herbaceous vine of the family Menispermaceae indigenous to the tropical areas of India,
In a randomised double-blind placebo-controlled study, Tinospora cordifolia significantly decreased all symptoms of allergic rhinitis.
I recommend HistaEze™ by Designs for Health that contains Tinospora cordifolia.
