Antioxidants, Nutritional Supplements, & Allergies

       When an allergy sufferer is experiencing a daily battle against the environment their sinuses, eyes, mucous membranes, and specific portions of the respiratory tract are all inflamed. Calming down the inflammation can help calm down the allergy symptoms. Some people have found Fish Oil and Cod Liver Oil (both are omega 3 fatty acids) may reduce inflammation and allergic response. In this case, cod liver oil is indicated since it also contains vitamin A which  improves the immune system and repairs mucous membranes.  Fish oil also has a positive calming effect on inflammatory ailments as well as the enzyme, Bromelain that derives from the juices and stems of pineapple.

         Increasing intake of antioxidants is essential to prevent free radicals, which are often elevated in allergy and asthma suffers. Consuming a diet rich in fatty acid foods such as cold water fish, also include flax seeds, chia seeds, walnuts, garlic, onion, ginger, rosemary, curcumin (turmeric) and the herb Bowellia. Other free radical quenching antioxidants are Vitamin E, Selenium, and Crotenoids. Consider Vitamin C, which is considered one of the most important dietary antioxidants for the protections of the lungs. People who suffer from allergic rhinitis usually have low levels of vitamin C. Eating a diet rich in antioxidants like green vegetables, fruits, berries and drinking tea or red wine - all rich sources of beneficial antioxidants known as Flavonoids, can help protect against damage in blood vessels, thus decreasing risk of cardiovascular disease. This can also be achieved by taking natural antioxidant supplements with anti-inflammatory properties. As always talk to your doctor about the different ways to relieve allergy symptoms naturally.
