Hist the Season

It’s that time of year again when symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, a runny or stuffy nose, and
itching in the eyes, nose, mouth, and throat are not a welcome gift.
Yes, its allergy season and it’s time for seasonal wellness naturally.
According to a recent report by the Cleveland Clinic, more than 50 million Americans experiences all
types of allergies.
We know there are plenty of OTC or prescription-based medications on the market today, but many
consumers are reluctant to choose these options because of the unwanted side effects like feeling tired,
lacking energy, or wired.
Surveys show that almost half of all people with allergies try a natural allergy remedy at some point.
Allergy supplements offer consumers natural options to manage their allergy seasonal conflicts.
Here are supplements to consider:
Quercetin-an antioxidant that has been shown to support immune health by mediating the release of
inflammatory compounds including leukotrienes and prostaglandins
Stinging Nettle Leaf-a plant that has been shown to balance immune response specifically in the airway
and nasal passages
Bromelain- an enzyme found in pineapple that is shown to reduce circulating allergenic protein
complexes associated with hyper-immune sensitivity and seasonal discomfort
N- Acetyl Cysteine- an amino acid and precursor to glutathione. Both glutamine and NAC may help to
reduce the viscosity of mucus for maintaining cleared airways and respiratory health
Vitamin C- has many immune boosting properties but is distinctly beneficial for individuals with season
discomfort because of its ability to deactivate histamine
