Allergies & Hayfever

Hayfever is a condition characterized by itchy eyes, sneezing and nasal discharge. Hayfever can be seasonal, with the immune system reacting to grass, tree and flower pollens. When the body comes into contact with pollen, cells in the lining of your nose, mouth and eyes release a chemical called histamine, that triggers the symptoms of an allergic reaction.

 

Nature’s answer to treating Hayfever include;

 

Quercetin found naturally in fruit rind is a Bioflavonoid, with anti-inflammatory and anti histamine properties. Quercetin inhibits the production  and release of histamine.

 

Vitamin B5 is often referred to as the anti-stress vitamin, because of its affect on the adrenal glands. B5 or pantothenic acid, helps regulate cortisol, one of the stress hormones.

 

Pycnogenol is a natural extract from pine bark, it contains natural anti-histamine properties.
