When the long-awaited spring arrives, you want to spend your free time outdoors and enjoy the blossoming nature. But for those suffering from pollen allergy, flowers become "enemies" and meadows "battlefields".
The eyes burn and blush, the runny nose and they can even take over respiratory disorders .
This year try a natural remedy, for timely prevention. In addition to relieving symptoms, it will have a beneficial influence on the entire immune system and its excessive response.
Nature itself offers you two phytotherapics which, especially in synergy, can be a valid help to return to enjoy spring!
There Perilla Frutescens Britton it is a plant native to China; the oil obtained from the pressing of its seeds is known for its high content of vegetable omega-3 fatty acids (alpha-linolenic acid), or the "omegas" that we generally find in salmon and blue fish.
These types of fatty acids are present in minimal amounts in the Western diet but, they are valuable anti-inflammatory properties and the ability to alleviate allergy symptoms .
In a short time, Perilla became the plant of choice in antiallergic formulations , without presenting the side effects typical of similar pharmacological remedies. The flavone complexes are present in the leaves and seeds, but only from the latter is the extract obtained which, by acting on the release of histamine, is able to calm the inflammatory response of the organism .
Perilla also inhibits the mediating action of an enzyme involved in allergic forms and in particular in asthmatic bronchoconstriction .
Finally, it has also been shown to be active in type IV allergies, such as contact dermatitis, contact eczema and reactions of hypersensitivity delayed, typical of some viral infections.
Pharmacological studies on Perilla do not report toxicity. The most surprising data is the total lack of side effects which, on the other hand, are typical of antihistamine drugs such as addiction, drowsiness, poor ability to concentrate that can negatively affect the ability to drive.
To help the body deal with the pollen allergy, which usually occurs in March, it is advisable to start taking herbal medicines (based on Perilla and Ribes) already in the second half of February!
Ribes Nigrum is now known by all those who suffer from allergies and it is particularly precious when spring arrives and the first pollen and feathers arrive.
Its action is linked to the presence in the buds of essential oil, flavonoids and glycosides which act as stimulants of the adrenal glands in the production of cortisol , a hormone that helps the body a react to inflammations . For this reason it is considered a "cortison-like", that is a plant with an action similar to that of cortisone.
The bud extract is particularly effective, i.e. the glycerine macerate obtained by combining the buds of the ribes nigrum with a mixture of water, alcohol and glycerin.

THE RIGHT POWER
Those who choose natural remedies for allergies can facilitate and enhance their action through their diet.

The advice of drink a lot of water it is always valid: an organism in which an allergic reaction is taking place is congested, it is therefore necessary that the mucous membranes are well hydrated; moreover, several scientific studies have shown that increasing the daily intake of water decreases the production of histamine.
Have a nice spring everyone!
