We have allergy sufferers ask us – especially this time of the year – if we can recommend a natural alternative to the usual over-the-counter medications. If you’re suffering from allergy symptoms, one of the products that we typically recommend is a nutritional supplement called Natural D-Hist.
Natural D-Hist from Ortho Molecular is an ideal solution for allergy sufferers. Unlike other over-the-counter products which only mask symptoms, Natural D-Hist actually provides support to sinus and nasal passage tissues to help inhibit the body’s allergy defense mechanisms.
Natural D-Hist contains a combination of ingredients that work together to provide allergy relief. Here’s a list with a brief description of each:
- Quercetin – A powerful natural flavonoid that has been shown to inhibit certain compounds that typically affect sinus and respiratory health. Naturally found in onions, quercetin supports mast cell stability and has been shown to promote sinus and respiratory health.
- Stinging Nettles Leaf – Studies have shown stinging nettles to demonstrate positive support for nasal passageway function. While further study is needed, stinging nettles in supplementation demonstrated measurable support after only one week.
- Bromelain – A strong pineapple enzyme, Bromelain has proven mucolytic properties which support normal mucosal tissue function and enhances the absorption of Quercetin.
- N-Acetyl L-Cysteine (NAC) – An amino acid, NAC helpd to promote the normal viscosity of mucus. Studies have shown individuals have been supplemented appropriately without side effects when given NAC.
Each of the above ingredients can be helpful by themselves in combating allergy symptoms. The nice feature of this product is that it combines theses ingredients in one capsule, giving you a powerful tool in your natural arsenal against allergies.
Hope this helps.
