This time of year heralds months of swollen eyes and runny noses, but you don’t have to live with dread and uncontrollable sneezes.
For lessening allergies, there are a few ways to relieve symptoms. Next time you’re whipping up breakfast, try implementing these anti-inflammatory ingredients into your next smoothie and create your own hay fever tonic. You can conveniently carry it around safe and snug inside your Limae travel case!
Fight off hay fever with MATCHA: Although it is not an antihistaminic, polyphenols in the substance have potent anti-oxidant effects, reducing inflammation and stabilizing mast cells. Studies reveal that matcha polyphenols have a positive impact on gut bacteria, further benefiting hay fever sufferers. Full of polyphenols and EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), matcha enables powerful detoxification against free radicals and chemicals. Drink to your daily wellbeing with this electric powder that fights against the bad stuff.
Slay the sneezes with PINEAPPLE: The allergy powerhouse contains bromelain, which has anti-inflammatory properties helping to break down mucus and relieve nasal congestion associated with hay fever.
Help hay fever with HONEY: Honey can relieve hay fever symptoms due to the process of immunotherapy. As honey contains traces of pollen, this exposes an individual to small amounts of the allergy substance in the hope they will build up a resistance to it. Furthermore, it is very soothing for a dry throat.
So down with the seasonal pestilence with this calming, tropical spring allergy tonic full of natural elements to make you feel better:
