It is getting warmer outside and with that comes lovely weather, the growth of new plants and unfortunately allergies. Do you spend every spring and summer with a new box of antihistamine? Do you have to be careful when you take allergy medication because it leaves you drowsy? Do you find that even non-drowsy types leave you feeling unlike yourself? Do you find that you seem to be reaching for the box every day?
Are you sick of it?
Most antihistamine drugs can be purchased without any effort at your local drug store, because of that antihistamines seem like a quick and easy fix for your seasonal allergy symptoms. Have you ever noticed the list of possible side effects on the box?
Many side effects of over the counter antihistamine include:
difficulty urinating (1)
fast or uneven heart rate
jaundice (yellowing of your skin or eyes)
skin rash (2)
tremors (uncontrolled shaking)
sleep problems (insomnia)
severe restless feeling
Although most people may not experience any of these side effects, or maybe only one or two, wouldn’t it be nice to find a solution that will relieve your allergy symptoms without the potential to cause other problems?
Spirulina has been found to have antihistamine properties.
Spirulina is a cyanobacteria (although often called bluegreen algae) that is full of chlorophyll, protein and other vitamins and minerals, and can easily be added to your diet.
In 2005 one study found that Spirulina was very effective in inhibiting allergic rhinitis symptoms. (4)
Then, in 2013 a Turkish double-blind placebo controlled study was conducted for a whole year, and it was found that Spirulina significantly improved allergy symptoms of nasal discharge, sneezing, nasal congestion, and itching. (5)
Another study found remarkable relief of allergy symptoms in rats that were given Spirulina. (6)
Finding allergy relief with Spirulina can be simple and easy.
Most Spirulina comes in the form of tablets which can be swallowed just as easily as any over the counter medication. Wuji Spirulina has been formulated in a way that requires no additives or fillers, so you can be sure you are only ingesting pure Spirulina.
