Hay Fever – How can Vitamins & Minerals help?
Spring has truly sprung now, but with it blooms the beginning of hay fever season…
Seasonal allergy symptoms such as sneezing, itchy eyes and a blocked nose occur when your body releases histamine in response to an allergen – in this case, pollen. While antihistamine tablets can help curb these irritating symptoms, they can also cause unwanted side effects: most commonly drowsiness, as well as dryness of the eyes and mouth. No one wants to feel like a sleepy desert!
Luckily for us seasonal sufferers, there is a lot of anecdotal advice on supplements that could help aid hay fever relief. These supplements don’t cause any adverse side effects when used within recommended dosage ranges. In fact, they provide the body with an array of extra beneficial effects, supporting additional areas of your wellbeing such as sleep, energy levels, hair health, detoxification, and mood.
Vitamin C – A Natural Antihistamine
Vitamin C, otherwise known as Ascorbic Acid, can work as a natural antihistamine by effectively reducing the total amount of histamine your body produces:
Lower histamine levels = improved hay fever symptoms!
Vitamin C also contributes to the protection of your cells from oxidative stress caused by inflammation due to repeated coughing and sneezing. On top of that, this essential vitamin has a whole range of other key health benefits, contributing to:
- Reduction of tiredness and fatigue
- Increased iron absorption
- Normal function of the immune system
- Normal energy-yielding metabolism
- Normal collagen formation
…and so much more, especially in higher doses!
