Natural Remedies for Allergies
Maintaining proper levels of magnesium in the body helps to relax airways, smooth muscles and helps to dilate bronchioles in the lungs. Magnesium helps to reduce histamine release and inflammation of the airways and lungs by stabilizing mast cells and T-lymphocytes.
Quercetin is a potent antioxidant. It is found in onions, apples, berries, and citrus fruits. It acts as an anti-histamine thereby inhibiting the production of histamine. It also increases the body's production of prostacyclin the body's blood thinner thereby increasing blood flow. Quercetin works well with bromelain in dealing with allergies.
Rosemary blocks the airway constriction caused by histamine. Rosemary is a potent anti-inflammatory that also relaxes the bronchial smooth muscle.
Grape Seed Extract (GSE)
Grape Seed is a potent anti-histamine. It does this by blocking an enzyme histadine decarboxylase which is responsible for the production of histamine. As a result, GSE blocks hyaluronidase the enzyme which facilitates the release of histamine into the body tissues, thereby maintaining the stability of the cell membranes of mast cells and basophils.
Acts as an antihistamine and potent anti-oxidant. Helps to relax bronchial smooth muscle. It also works by preventing allergies by detoxifying the allergen before it can cause a reaction.
Works by preventing mast cell degranulation which causes histamine to be released. Does this by blocking the enzyme beta-hexosaminidase the enzyme central to mast cell degranulation.
