With Forever Living Products
As spring approaches in many parts of the world, and autumn in others, many of us are hit by the “allergy season” as the result of blooming plants, cut grasses and leaves.
While our immune systems normally function to protect us from foreign invaders, sometimes the cells involved in immune function can overreact to what should be a harmless substance. This is what happens when we experience seasonal allergies. Specific immune cells are heavily involved in allergies, releasing substances, including histamine, that cause those nasty symptoms we associate with allergy season – itchy, red, watery and puffy eyes, runny noses, and even skin irritations.
Unfortunately, we often aren’t eating the healthiest foods, which would provide the recommended daily levels of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants our bodies need as well as support immune function. However, relieving allergy symptoms can be as simple as supporting your health and wellness with the proper balance of nutrients.
Forever Arctic Sea (#376C) provides a balanced blend of Omega 3 fatty acids from cold water fish and calamari oils – essential nutrients for cell membranes in virtually every tissue in the body. The proper balance of Omega-3 fatty acids in the diet can help to keep cell membranes fluid and also support immune function. Omega-3 fatty acids can support the tissues of the respiratory tract, eyes and skin, which can all be impacted by allergy season.
Garlic has been well established for having supportive effects on the immune system, and Forever Garlic-Thyme (#065C) provides the equivalent of 1,000mg of fresh garlic in each softgel, along with the antioxidant benefits of Thyme.
Finally, though it may seem odd to refer to the digestive system when discussing seasonal allergies, an estimated 70-80% of the immune system resides in the gastrointestinal tract. Ensuring that we have a balance of good bacteria to other bacteria in our gut can help to support immune function throughout the body. Forever Active Pro-B (#610C) provides 6 strains of good bacteria in a shelf-stable beadlet that help us to achieve the ideal ratio of 85:15 (good bacteria vs other bacteria) in our digestive tracts.
Together, a comprehensive multi-vitamin-mineral formula, along with additional vitamin C and bioflavonoids, Omega-3 fatty acids, garlic, and probiotics, can support overall immune function, help stabilize immune cell membranes, and support tissues of the skin and respiratory tract. Forever Arctic Sea, Forever Garlic-Thyme, and Forever Active Pro-B can offer powerful nutritive support and protection to carry us through allergy season.
