Pollen allergy is because pollen binds to human serum immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies, which triggers the release of histamine; the mucous membranes of human eyes, nose, and throat are full of "obese cells", which combine with pollen allergic substances to release obese cells The "histamine" substances can stimulate nerves and blood vessels, causing symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion, itchy eyes, and foreign body sensation in the throat. According to research reports, hay fever does not undergo any treatment intervention, and the probability of developing asthma is 23%. Especially some people with congenital respiratory function must avoid asthma caused by allergies, otherwise it may be life-threatening.
For the symptom of pollen allergy, the most consumed on the market is glucocorticoid plus antihistamine therapy. However, there is still no effective treatment to cure this symptom. Therefore, humans and machines are basically safe by avoiding allergens, or massage and massage are appropriately relieved. Some foods and functional ingredients are also good materials for relieving hay fever.
It is recommended that people with pollen allergies eat more fruits rich in vitamins, such as strawberries, apples, dates, etc. Drinking honey water in moderation can also relieve pollen allergies, but honey must be produced in your area. Honey will contain pollen spores from this area, and the pollen content in honey is low, so there is no need to worry about allergic symptoms. Long-term intake, the body will produce antibodies to get used to the presence of pollen spores and reduce the chance of the immune system releasing histamine.
Besides alleviating through food, what other functional ingredients can alleviate this symptom?
Functional Raw Materials To Relieve Pollen Allergy:
Consumption of anti-allergic probiotics is also a good choice. Anti-allergic probiotics can prevent allergies by improving the intestinal microecological environment, regulating allergic physique, regulating immune function, and improving the resistance of the intestinal mucosa to allergic substances. In 2001, the anti-allergic effect of lactic acid bacteria was confirmed, and research on the relationship between hay fever and food allergy and other allergic diseases and lactic acid bacteria intake has been continuously advanced.
Chamomile is a natural plant, and its ingredients have the effect of producing biologically active secondary metabolites against various skin diseases. It contains 27 kinds of triterpenoids, which can effectively fight dermatitis, inhibit and relieve skin induced allergies, and enhance capillary resistance; it is rich in flavonoids and has a good soothing effect on itchy skin , Play a role in replenishing moisture and soothing the skin. Chamomile is also used to relieve symptoms of depression and anxiety. Patients with hay fever can choose skin care products containing chamomile and oral supplements of chamomile extract to relieve allergic reactions.
The most effective products on the market are ointments and creams with plantain and chamomile as the main ingredients. Clinical studies have proved that this plant-based ointment has anti-inflammatory, anti-itch, antibacterial and promoting wound healing effects.
3. European Butterbur
The European herbal butterbur (Petasites hybridus) is a natural raw material that has attracted more attention. As a botanical medicine, it has been used in Europe for hundreds of years. The carbon dioxide extract of the rhizome is used to treat migraine, urogenital spasm, asthma, allergic rhinitis, etc.
The active ingredient sesquiterpenoids are considered to be the main active ingredient. Modern pharmacological studies have shown that sesquiterpenoids such as petasin and S-petasin have antihistamines, inhibit leukotriene synthesis, and reduce intracellular calcium ion concentration. Achieve anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic effects. Sesquiterpene lactone compounds. Preliminary in vitro pharmacological experiments show that these compounds are cytotoxic, have potential anti-cancer activity, and can inhibit platelet activating factor to achieve anticoagulant effects. A study published in the British Medical Journal showed that taking butterbur extract is as effective as an antihistamine in controlling the symptoms of hay fever without getting sleepy.
4. Yeast β-glucan
A study published in the journal Food Science and Nutrition showed that people who consumed specially baked yeast containing β-glucan had reduced allergy symptoms.
A randomized double-blind study divided 48 healthy subjects into two groups. In areas with high pollen levels, one group of testers was given a placebo for four consecutive weeks, while the other group received 250 mg of beta-glucan-containing yeast every day. The participants complete an allergy survey, including the Quality of Life Questionnaire (RQLQ) for people with allergic conjunctivitis to assess different allergic symptoms. Statistics show that the overall symptoms and severity are significantly reduced, the nasal cavity and eye-related allergic symptoms are reduced, and the quality of life index is improved.
Studies have found that yeast β-glucan can regulate the immune system when the body makes an immune response; the results show that β-glucan can dominate the immune system to keep the body healthy.
5. Olive Leaf Extract
Japanese Menard Cosmetics Company discovered in 2015 that the leaves of the Mediterranean origin plant "olive" have the effect of preventing and alleviating the symptoms of pollen allergy. Olive leaf extract can reduce the amount of IgE antibodies that help pollen allergic substances bind, so it has a good preventive effect on inhibiting the onset of pollen allergy.
The company produces tablets containing olive leaf extracts, and conducts human trials with Fujita Health University to confirm that it has the effect of alleviating pollen allergies.
6. Witch Hazel Extract
Witch hazel extract contains many anti-inflammatory compounds, including gallic acid and tannins, which help treat skin inflammation problems such as acne, eczema or psoriasis. Studies have shown that the strong antioxidant properties of North American witch hazel extract combined with its anti-inflammatory properties can inhibit skin damage and redness caused by light radiation.
Natural functional raw materials are the safest and possibly the most effective method, and are also an effective supplementary program for the treatment of severe allergies.
