Hayfever, eczema and asthma are linked together, so a sufferer of one is likely to suffer from the other two as well, and the tendency to allergies frequently runs in families.
SO WHAT CAN DONE ABOUT IT?
At Elixir, we are particularly enthusiastic about Solgar's Quercetin Complex, which also contains vitamin C for added support to the immune system. Quercetin is a flavonoid found widely in the plant kingdom, and plays a role in the immune system function and its inflammatory response. It helps support healthy respiratory tract function, especially when challenged. Quercetin also has powerful antihistamine activity, stabilising the immune cells so they do not release histamine in the first place. Like Quercetin, Bromelain is known to have anti-inflammatory properties, and also greatly enhances Quercetin absorption. Bromelain, which is an enzyme found in pineapples, has the ability to break down proteins and helps to disperse the mucus associated with allergic reactions.
Just so you know, it is suitable from the age of 4 and there are no contraindications including pregnancy.
