Seasonal Allergies: What Foods Help Us Fight Them?

These are the times that are ripe for allergies. And if you suffer from this condition, you'll probably find countless antihistamines in your bag, but the good news is that you can leave them aside and just focus on the diet you're following.

The relationship between seasonal allergies and what we put on our plates is greater than you might think. Adding certain foods to your meals can help alleviate some of the symptoms that haunt your days. So, to say "goodbye" to a stuffy nose and watery eyes, while boosting your immune system and reducing inflammation, make smart choices. Take note of what you can (now) start adding to your cooking.

Onion

Quercetin, a compound from onions, is touted as being a natural antihistamine, reducing allergy symptoms. In addition to this fact, onions also contain a series of other anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds, which will be essential in helping us overcome this phase.

In this sense, red onions have a higher concentration of elements with these properties, compared to white onions. The less positive news is that you will have to consume it raw if you want a more visible effect and make the most of its benefits. Try eating it in salads or in sauces, like guacamole.

Tomato

As a citrus fruit, tomatoes contain a huge amount of vitamin C, something that is valuable for stopping the most unpleasant symptoms characteristic of allergies. Furthermore, lycopene (antioxidant compound) is also something we find in this food, making it easier to absorb all its benefits when cooked.

Ginger

Swelling and irritation of the eyes, throat and nasal passages are inflammatory problems arising from most allergies and are considered the most unpleasant. Fortunately, ginger can help, as it is considered a true natural remedy for a number of health problems, including inflammation caused by allergies. You can consume it fried or roasted and you can also opt for ginger tea.

Honey

It is not scientifically proven, but everything indicates that eating honey occasionally can help us feel more relieved when faced with adverse symptoms. It appears that the allergic reaction caused by pollen thus diminishes over time.
