An allergy is an exaggerated immune system response to a perceived threat and can be to any substance. The most common allergens are pollen, dust, animal hair and dander, insect bites, grasses, cleaning products, metal in costume jewellery, mould and fungus. Sneezing, red, itchy and watering eyes, nasal congestion, headaches, fatigue, dark circles under the eyes and wheezing are an annual occurrence for the millions of people who suffer from seasonal allergies that arrive with the warmer spring weather each year. + Read more >
Allergies to foods have been on the rise in recent years, and while many are manageable by avoiding the food trigger this is not always enough. For people with anaphylactic food allergies (e.g. nuts or seafood) complete avoidance and making sure you have an Epipen and antihistamine available at all times is important regardless of the natural steps taken to reduce your allergies. Many of the more common allergies can be managed by avoiding the allergens and using allergy relief supplements when this isn’t enough. There have been impressive clinical trials recently that have shown that herbal allergy relief supplements such as butterbur are as effective as pharmaceutical allergy products in providing relief to allergy sufferers. This is very good news for the health conscious allergy sufferer who would rather take a natural approach to allergies than a pharmaceutical one. Other herbal allergy relief supplements that are beneficial include Goldenseal, Grape Seed extract, Stinging Nettle, Vitamin A and C, and Evening Primrose oil. Another natural allergy relief supplement shown to be beneficial is quercetin, a flavonoid that helps stabilize mast cells which are responsible for the release of histamine and leukotrienes, inflammatory chemicals involved in allergic reactions. In the case of insect bites, hives or eczema related to allergies, natural allergy relief supplements can be used in addition to natural topical products such as calendula cream to sooth the skin reaction. In addition to treating allergies as they occur with natural allergy relief supplements, boosting your immune system naturally can help reduce and possibly prevent allergic reactions completely. Keys to boosting your immune system include taking a high quality, hypoallergenic multivitamin supplement and Omega-3 fatty acid supplements. If treating and preventing allergies naturally is your goal, check out Body Energy Club’s wide selection of online allergy relief supplements at unbeatable prices. Before starting any new supplements it is important to check with your doctor to make sure they are right for you, especially if you have a medical condition or are taking prescription medications.+ Read less >
Allergies are a common problem that affects 20% of Americans, and the prevalence of allergy has lately been on the rise. Allergies are caused by a glitch in the immune system. In any normal immune system, plasma cells produce proteins called antibodies, which patrol the body like tiny police officers in search of proteins that are foreign to the body and signal the presence of a problematic invader. When antibodies find such an invader, they alert the immune cell authorities to trigger an immune response. The least common kind of antibody, immunoglobulin E (IgE), is normally present in very low amounts and is only used to set off an immune reaction in response to a parasitic infection.

Quercetin is the flavone aglycone (non-sugar-bound) form of the polyphenolic flavonoid rutin. It is the major bioflavonoid in the human diet. A potent phenolic antioxidant, research also supports Quercetin's ability to stabilize the membranes of neutrophils (a kind of immune cell) and thereby balance the production of histamine and inflammatory signaling molecules. Antioxidants stop oxidants (free radicals, which disrupt the integrity of other molecules by stripping their electrons) from attacking nearby molecules, such as mitochondria, membranes, and DNA. There are many classes of dietary antioxidants, and flavonoids are one of them. Flavonoids have many phenols linked to their antioxidants. Common sources of flavonoids are vegetables, fruits, and beverages such as wine and teas. Of the many flavonoid powerhouses, Quercetin is a major player. Quercetin is the most widely consumed flavonoid in the diet. Quercetin has been widely used by Russians and Europeans to treat a variety of ailments.From:
I have been into athletics all of my life. Not just “sports,” but hard-hitting, muscle-pumping, heart-pounding, mentally-grueling, endurance-testing sports... Warrior Sports. I would rather die than be denied my Warrior Spirit - that is just who I am. I am also hard-core into health. Unfortunately, sports “nutrition” products have nothing to do with actual health. They are notoriously unhealthy, many of them downright toxic — ultimately contributing to a Warrior’s demise. I am a Naturopath and Herbal medicine researcher, and have embraced a hard-core healing lifestyle for 24 years, during which I have seen people who had healthy looking physiques degenerate, die much too soon (or die suddenly) due to their toxic diet, lifestyle and supplements.From:$67.99
