The season that opens the doors to summer, full of sun and blooming nature, can turn into a real nightmare for many. Runny nose, constant sneezing, itching, throat discomfort, red eyes are just some of the most common symptoms of seasonal allergies.
When the organism of allergy sufferers comes into contact with pollen and plants, an immediate immune reaction is triggered. The origin of the allergy can be hereditary, but nutrition, lifestyle and the environment also play an important role.
How can we alleviate the discomforts derived from spring allergies?
Nature offers us a range of solutions to improve our reaction to pollen.
For example, Ribes nigrum, also known as the pearl of gemmotherapy.
The Ribes Nigrum bud extract is obtained from the maceration of fresh buds and has a strong anti-allergic action. It is a plant with a thousand beneficial properties, including that of counteracting the release of histamine. It has an anti-inflammatory action, is rich in vitamin C and strengthens the immune system. Also useful against fatigue and conjunctivitis.
The buds rich in essential oil, flavonoids and glycosides, act as stimulants of the adrenal glands in the production of cortisol, an endogenous cortisone that helps the body to react to inflammation. This cortison-like activity generates a very important reaction because it helps to counteract any type of stress or injury, eliminate inflammation and temporarily inhibit the action of the immune system that triggers allergies.
Ribes Nigrum also supports joint function and that of the urinary tract, favoring the drainage of body fluids.
Another plant friend of those suffering from allergies and inflammations of various kinds is the perilla, which belongs to the Lamiaceae family (such as basil, rosemary, sage, oregano). The Perilla plant has been used for centuries in cooking, especially in China and Japan, in particular as a side dish in fish dishes.
One of the strengths of this plant is its content in alpha-linoleic acid, known as a precursor of omega-6.
The seeds also contain good amounts of flavonoids, valuable antioxidant compounds for allergy prevention. But not only that: it actively acts by modulating the level of immonoglubiline E (IgE), naturally elevated in the event of an allergic reaction.
The Perilla seems to have given positive results on allergies of various kinds, whether seasonal or not, such as dermatitis, hives, eczema and asthma.
La Perilla oil is a supplement formulated in pearls also useful in case of:
- Weak immune system;
- Inflammatory states;
- Vegetarian food.
