What are Allergies?

Allergens (agents that trigger an allergic response such as pollen from various plants) stimulate the immune system to release immunoglobulin, which in turn produces a histamine release. Histamine causes the body to flush, produce extra mucus, swells tissues, and can cause eyes to tear-the primary symptoms of hay fever. Other nasty symptoms include sinus congestion, headache, and burning eyes. The good news is there are several fast acting natural products that can relieve those nasty symptoms (without the side effects of certain medications).

What are the most common seasonal allergies?

The most common seasonal allergies are typically triggered by airborne allergens such as pollen from trees, grasses, and weeds. These allergies are often referred to as hay fever or allergic rhinitis. The specific allergens that cause seasonal allergies can vary depending on the time of year and geographic location. Here are some common seasonal allergens:

  1. Tree Pollen: Trees such as oak, birch, cedar, and pine release pollen in the spring, which can trigger allergic reactions in some individuals.
  2. Grass Pollen: Grasses release pollen in late spring and early summer.
  3. Weed Pollen: Weeds such as ragweed, sagebrush, and pigweed release pollen in late summer and fall.
  4. Mold Spores: Outdoor mold spores can be more prevalent in warm, humid weather.
  5. Fungal Spores: In some regions, fungal spores from indoor and outdoor sources.
Can children develop seasonal allergies?

Yes, children can get seasonal allergies. In fact, allergies are quite common in children, with hay fever (allergic rhinitis) being one of the most common types. Children can develop allergies at any age, although they are more likely to develop them if there is a family history of allergies.

The symptoms of seasonal allergies in children are similar to those in adults and can include:

  • Sneezing
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Itchy eyes, nose, or throat
  • Watery eyes
  • Coughing
  • Fatigue
Quercertin and Allergies

Quercetin, stabilizes the body's mast cells, which store and release histamine, so it supports individuals who suffer from allergies. Quercetin appears to have many other beneficial effects on human health, including protection of the gastrointestinal tract and the cardiovascular system, where it scavenges free radicals and inhibits oxidation of LDL cholesterol. A number of quercetin's positive effects appear to be due to its antioxidant activity.* By itself, and paired with vitamin C, quercetin can reduce the incidence of oxidative damage to the skin and nerves caused by the natural depletion of glutathio

Bromelain and Quercetin
Bromelain, which is a mixture of proteolytic (protein-digesting) enzymes from the pineapple plant (Ananas comosus), has been shown to promote healing and reduce temporary and minor swelling and bruising following an injury or a surgical procedure – including dental surgery.* One study of patients with bone fractures found bromelain decreased swelling Together Quercetin, Bromelain with NAC and Stinging Nettles supports healthy mast cell function.
