AllerAssist is my first go to when I think of allergies as a result of our environment. It is estimate that 1 in 5 people, 50 million Americans suffer from allergies on a regular basis. Many people are unaware that there are so many natural things that can be done in order to slow down this hyper-immune response and reduce histamine levels within the body. This is what the product AllerAssist is designed to help you accomplish with its research proven, scientific backed ingredients.
Pain areas: in the ear
Nasal:congestion, loss of smell, redness, runny nose, post-nasal drip, sneezing, or stuffy nose
Eyes:itchiness, puffy eyes, redness, or watery eyes
Respiratory:breathing through the mouth or wheezing
Also common:coughing, fatigue, headache, itching, phlegm, or throat irritation
If you identify with one or more of the complaints above, then AllerAssist can help you!
VITAMIN C (abscrobic acid)
Vitamin C has so many positive health benefits. It’s important to know that Vitamin C must be obtained exogenously as humans are unable to synthesize this vitamin. Vitamin C is well known for antioxidant protection from free radicals, the synthesis of collagen, carnitine and neurotransmitters. As it relates to allergies and sensitivities, vitamins C’s lesser know role is the deactivation of histamine. This is why it is crucial for you to combat hypersensitivities.
Bioflavonoids are found in many of your green vegetables but also in AllerAssist. Quercetin, dihydroquercetin, and rutin are the specific bioflavonoids in this formula. Rutin reduces edema which is going to reduce mucus buildup and runny nose. They are all known for moderating the immune system during exaggerated immune responses, protecting against the negative side effects from oxidation and inflammation during hyper immune reactions. Bioflavonoids also prevent a histamine release during episodes of hypersensitivity and mast cell degranulation. Bioflavonoids are very powerful for supporting a healthy immune response to seasonal allergies.
STINGING NETTLE EXTRACT
Stinging Nettle Leaf is proven to regulate many inflammatory activities associated with a hyper immune response. This includes mast cell degranulation, prostaglandin formation and the modulation of histamine.
This is the acetylated form of the essential amino acid L-cystein that works as a precursor the master antioxidant in the body glutathione. Glutathione is the most powerful and important antioxidant in the body as it plays significant roles in overall health and wellbeing. NAC plays a significant role in antioxidant protection, reduction of inflammation, and detoxification. Lastly the NAC plays as a natural mucolytic by reducing the viscosity of the mucous at the time of a hyper immune response.
Bromelain is an enzyme complex that is found in the stem of the pineapple plant. It combats hypersensitive immune reactions by modulating the inflammatory reaction as a result of your environment. In countries like Germany it is approved as a treatment for micro-inflammations and related discomforts. Research studies have identified its positive effects on controlling edema, tissue permeability and vasodilation. It also enhances the absorption of bioflavonoids like quercetin.
All the ingredients in AllerAssist are not only research proven to have incredible effects individually, but also research proven to have a compounding effect with better results when taken together. The reason for this is because together they enhance each other’s absorption and bioavailability.
