A “Twin Bill” Featuring a Couple of Naturals
As a person with allergies, I’ve been asked by caring individuals countless times following a few sneezes: “What made you sneeze?” Truth is, the pollen that impacts the lives of countless millions of North Americans span from at least a dozen species of trees in the spring, to many common grasses in the summer, to the unassuming yet notorious ragweed (Ambrosia artemisiifolia) spewing billions of grains of pollen per plant in late summer and early fall.
Our double feature for allergy relief includes two potent, naturally acting antihistamines: BlackCumin Seed Oil and Quercetin Bioflavonoids. They’re among the most effective natural antihistamines available, yet people tend to think they have to choose between them. When taken together, they span a broad therapeutic range as a unique strategy to combat seasonal allergies.
BlackCumin Seed Oil has a unique fatty acid profile that includes naturally occurring linoleic acid. Linoleic acid stabilizes cell membranes to exert potent antihistamine action. It also serves as a building block for production of prostaglandins, the hormone-like mediators of the inflammatory response.
Quercetin is among the group of plant pigments called flavonoids. These potent compounds strengthen the membranes of specialized cells (mast and basophil) to prevent the release of histamines. Histamines are the cause of common hay-fever symptoms that include sneezing, itching and runny nose, and watery eyes.
Our immune system performs a “balancing act” while defending our health. Occasionally, it overreacts and perceives foreign objects such as plant pollen as a health threat. BlackCumin Seed Oil and Quercetin Bioflavonoids mediate the way our immune system perceives common airborne allergens. This will give you the freedom to enjoy all the activities, action, and adventure our seasons deliver year upon year.
