General supplementation for allergies

Allergies can vary in severity and require individualized care. However, there are some supplements that may have potential benefits for general allergy management. It’s best to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new supplements/ treatments .

Here are a few supplements that have been studied for their potential effects on allergies:

 

  1. Quercetin: Quercetin is a plant flavonoid with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It has been suggested that quercetin may help stabilize mast cells, which are involved in allergic reactions. Some studies have shown potential benefits in reducing allergy symptoms.

 

  1. Vitamin C: Vitamin C is an antioxidant that can help support the immune system. It may have a mild antihistamine effect and reduce the severity of allergy symptoms.

 

  1. Omega-3 fatty acids: Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish oil and certain plant sources like flaxseed, have anti-inflammatory properties. Some studies have suggested that omega-3 supplementation may help reduce symptoms of allergic rhinitis (hay fever).

 

  1. Probiotics: Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that can help promote a healthy gut microbiome. Some studies have shown that certain strains of probiotics may help modulate the immune response and reduce the severity of allergic symptoms. However, for more information on the specific strains and specific dosages – please consider a consultation.

 

  1. Bromelain: Bromelain is an enzyme found in pineapples that has been studied for its potential anti-inflammatory effects. It may help reduce nasal swelling and improve breathing in individuals with allergic rhinitis.
