What are allergies anyway? If you don't know, this video may help shine some light on what's going on when you're exposed to allergens.
Anything can be an allergen, but pollens are among the more common allergens, and metro Atlantans are certainly getting hit by them right now!
So what can you do?
You're probably familiar with all the over-the-counter options for allergy support, but there are also a whole host of natural products that can help support you during these seasonal pollen spikes and help you enjoy your fall!
Here are just a few of our favorites:
1. Raw local honey
Raw local honey has a well-earned reputation as an excellent seasonal support aid. We sell Honey Creek Bee Farm raw honey at our stores and hear lots of stories from happy customers! Honey Creek Bee Farm also has some useful information about the effectiveness of raw honey on their website if you'd like to check it out.
Aller-Ease is a premium liquid product with a host of beneficial ingredients: vitamins, minerals, quercetin, bromelain, nettles, MSM, NAC, eyebright, and more. It was designed to support fast relief, and to help inhibit the release of histamine.
People often worry about the taste of liquids, but this product, in a fruit juice base, tastes like juice. As an added bonus, it's gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, yeast-free, and vegan, and free of artificial preservatives.
Allertonic is a great all-herbal seasonal support products from Herbs, Etc. It comes in both softgels and a liquid.
Nettles, licorice, eyebright, horehound, osha, and more support a healthier inflammatory support of the respiratory and digestive systems, so often involved with allergic response. It's also designed to help stabilize the mast cells.
This is an excellent product with a long history of use, and we sell it well in our stores!
These products are just a few of the options we carry to help support you through high pollen counts! Come in to any location if you have questions or want to see what else we offer.
