For some people spring means renewal, but for allergy sufferers it means itching, sniffling, sneezing and watery eyes. Allergies — with symptoms ranging from sinus congestion and hay fever to asthma, dermatitis or hives — are a sign of impaired immune function. Depending on the particular allergy; allergy season can begin in the early spring and persist until late fall. This leads many of us to reach for standard over-the-counter relief like antihistamines and decongestant medications, which can cause undesirable side effects like drowsiness or dizziness. But regardless of your allergy or the season, you can instead opt for immune-enhancing supplements that will keep your immune system strong while providing health benefits instead of unwanted effects.
Here are our recommendations for three supplements to add to your allergy-fighting arsenal.
To maximize effectiveness, vitamin C is best taken with bioflavonoids — the natural pigments in fruits and vegetables — in divided doses spaced throughout the day. The bioflavinoids enhance the activity of vitamin C in the body and help to stabilize mast cells, which secrete the histamine linked to allergic reactions.
When you need to take an immediate action, we recommend to treat allergies topically with natural and organic balms. DermaMedTM All Purpose Balm is clinically proven to be as effective as topical cortisone creams for many dermatological conditions including eczema, dermatitis, rashes and hives. Soothing botanical extracts and natural therapy ingredients provide immediate relief for itching and help heal skin lesions noticeably, overnight.
