Nature is in full bloom and for some that means allergies are raging.
Here are some whole foods that can help relieve some of your symptoms
As if you hadn’t heard it enough, spinach, kale, and leafy greens are great for you. In this case we’re talking about their magnesium content, which is beneficial as a bronchodilator and antihistamine. Other sources of magnesium include avocados, cashews, and black beans.
2) Broccoli Sprouts
Similar in appearance to bean sprouts, broccoli sprouts contain a chemical called sulforaphane that is a powerful antioxidant and detoxifier. These little sprouts have been shown to reduce the impact of particulate pollution on people with allergies and asthma as well.
This fruit contains bromelain, a mixture of enzymes that can reduce your immune systems’ reactions to allergens and help keep airways from getting inflamed.
Onions contain a bioflavonoid called quercetin that has proven to be a mast-cell stabilizer and histamine reducer in addition to fighting inflammation and providing allergy relief. Other sources of quercetin are apples and broccoli.
Eastern medicine has known of the histamine-blocking properties of this spice for centuries, but it’s just now catching on in the West. It’s also shown itself to be a powerful anti-inflammatory. Turmeric is easy to add to your scrambled eggs, soups, or beans.
