QUOTE OF THE ISSUE
In simple terms, an allergy is a hyperactive
“Every season can be an response of the immune system to certain
substances that are 'foreign' to our bodies. These
allergy season, substances are called allergens.
depending on what you
are allergic to.” – Clara Histamine is involved in allergic symptoms such
as sneezing and itching. Histamine is released by
Chung the mast cells; macrophages and leucocytes in
response to a foreign body. So the anti histamine
drugs are the first answer for these kinds of
problems. Quercetin an anti oxidant is thought to
prevent the release of the inflammatory chemical
histamine from immune cells called mast cells. The
promotion of inflammation in respiratory tracts can
be prevented by the Carotenoids, especially beta
carotenoids. Omega-3 Fatty Acids can also play an
important role by reducing the production of
inflammatory chemicals like prostaglandin E2 and
inflammatory cytokines. Vitamin C has got
antihistamine activity. Bioflavonoids such as
Quercetin, might act synergistically with Vitamin C
as both have antihistaminic activity.

The above all can be obtained through herbs.


Artificial antihistamines may cause drowsiness and
depression. So it is always better to use the natural
occurring form of it.
