Antioxidant Formula: The use of certain antioxidants is beneficial in the treatment of allergic reactions, particularly the amino acid l-methionine, which drives methylation that is necessary for the excretion of histamine from the body. The carotenoid family in combination protect the respiratory tract lining and reduce the production of leukotrienes, which along with histamine trigger the process of allergic reactions.
Organic Black Seed Oil Nigella sativa has been shown to possess anti- inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-microbial and analgesic properties. Thymoquinone (TQ) is one of the major active components and it is believed to be involved in the anti-inflammatory actions of black seed, namely an inhibitory effect on COX-1 and PGE2 production as well as inhibiting eicosanoid generation and membrane lipid peroxidation through the inhibition of cyclooxygenase and 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO) pathways. Organic Black Seed Oil can be used for both internal and external use.
Dong Quai: The immunoglobulins that are activated with immediate allergic response have been shown to be reduced with the use of the herb Dong Quai.
Quercetin: The release of histamine and leukotrienes is responsible for the actual symptoms of allergies. The use of quercetin can inhibit the action of these natural defences. Vitamin C can also help the body to detoxify itself of histamine and enhance the effectiveness of bioflavonoids.
Probiotics: Probiotic strains have been shown to produce immune factors that promote the regulation of the immune function. Research has shown the use of probiotics and the improvement of and reduction in occurrence of respiratory allergic responses. The SynbioticTM range with the exception of ProCare, are formulated with prebiotic compounds, Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) and inulin fibres.
