Fight Seasonal Allergies With Fewer Side Effects

Every year, high pollen counts trigger allergy symptoms all across Eastern Iowa. If you are one of them, you may be experiencing watery eyes, a runny nose, a scratchy throat or feeling like you have “tickle bugs” in your throat. These symptoms are in response to histamine release in the body.

Quercetin is a natural substance known to stop the release of histamine and prevent allergic responses. It is also believed to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, which might help reduce inflammation associated with the body’s response to allergens (such as runny nose). Quercetin is found in foods like red wine, onions, green tea, apples, berries, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and turnips.

To effectively control allergy symptoms, it may be helpful to use more than one active ingredient. At CarePro Advance Health and CarePro Pharmacies, you can purchase Natural D Hist, a supplement that contains quercetin, bromelain, N-acetyl-Cysteine and vitamin C. All of these ingredients are known to help prevent and treat allergy symptoms. Natural D-Hist also has very few side effects that are common with antihistamines (it won’t make you drowsy or give you dry mouth). Give it a try!
