For some people, it doesn’t matter what season or time of year it is, allergies are just a horrible part of everyday life. There are some ways to help alleviate that horrible feeling of allergies. Dietary supplements fill a hole in your health needs in easy to manage doses or strengths. For allergies, you have a lot of allergy support supplement choices out there.
Acidophilus and Probiotics
We have a little secret to let you in on. We have bacteria all over and inside of our bodies. I know, this may be a shock, but there are billions and billions of awesome bacteria hanging around that help our bodies do… well, everything. In this case, acidophilus is one of those awesome bacteria that live in our digestive tract. While most people can benefit from a little extra probiotic to help fight infections, acidophilus has been shown to help in the prevention of some skin issues, like thrush and allergies.
Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids
To figure out how to relieve allergies, it helps to know how the symptoms start. For most common allergy issues like excess mucus and tearing, there are certain cells in the body that are triggered by the allergen and start producing histamine. This is why antihistamines work so well, but they can also have a drowsy side effect. Nature gave us vitamin C to help prevent the formation of histamine to hit the issue before it is an issue. Bioflavonoids come in to assist the vitamin C as Mother Nature intended, as they are found in the natural pigments of fruits and vegetables.
We’ve already talked about bioflavonoids, so explaining quercetin will be simple. Quercetin is the bioflavonoid in onions. It is also an effective way to help stop your body from producing histamine. If you combine quercetin with the vitamin C and bioflavonoids, you can boost the effectiveness to your body.
Our bodies can do wondrous things. It can also use a little help from time to time. The proper dietary supplements can give our bodies that helping hand.
