Posted on April 14, 2016 | 0 comments

Seasonal Allergies

It's that time of year again - while most are excited for the snow to be melting away, some are dreading the ensuing runny nose, sneezing, headaches and itchy eyes. Spring marks the beginning of allergy season. Are you looking for a natural approach or a way to prevent your allergies before they even begin?

AOR's Allerque contains a combination of 3 natural ingredients proven to reduce the symptoms of allergies and asthma, while also relieving the misery of headaches & migraines.

Many people are familiar with quercetin, the anti-oxidant found in apples and onions that stabilizes histamine release from our immune cells. Histamine is the chemical responsible for typical allergy symptoms. With this in mind, any substance that prevents its activation in the body will help to decrease the allergic response.

Less people are familiar with the anti-allergy effects of the herbs rosemary (rosmarinus officinalis) and butterbur (petasites hybridus). Rosemary has actually been studied and shown to provide relief of itchy nose, watery eyes and itchy eyes in up to 70% of patients with hay fever.

ButterburThe results for butterbur many be even more impressive. Butterbur works by inhibiting the leukotrienes that cause inflammation in our airways, so it is no surprise that butterbur has been shown to improve airflow in the lungs of asthma and bronchitis patients. A research study also found that butterbur was as effective as the antihistamine Cetirizine (Reactine©) for hay fever, yet without the sedation. In other words, butterbur gives you less wheezing and sneezing with no drowsy side effects!

 

 

 All in all, AOR's Allerque helps to prevent and treat allergies. This means that you feel better, sooner. For best results, start supplementing about 1 month before the onset of your allergy symptoms. As a long-term solution, consider supporting your liver and digestive tract, too, as both of these organs play a key role in the detoxifiction of allergens from your body.
