Prepare for the Outdoors: If you know you will be taking a trip outside, don’t wait until you have your foot out the door to take your allergy relief remedy. Consuming a remedy about 2 hours before going out will help the active ingredients kick-in in time to relieve symptoms.
Eat to Relieve: Research suggests that food rich in antioxidants – such as broccoli, cauliflower, or brussel sprouts – can lower you chance of suffering from allergies. A 2009 study from the University of California’s School of Medicine found that people ingesting 200 grams of broccoli sprouts had a 101% increase in multiple types of antioxidants in their airways, which can protect you from airborne pollen.
Don’t Throw Away Winter Relievers: Once spring cleaning comes along, many people don’t think twice about throwing away cold & flu relievers used throughout the winter months. However, these remedies can come in handy when fighting allergies. Zinc Gluconate Lozenges, like Cold-EEZE Cold Remedy Lozenges, can help soothe sore throats as well as help stop a spring cold in its tracks with its formula clinically proven to shorten the duration of a cold by almost half.
Exercise More: Physical activity can help to relieve allergy symptoms through boosting and maintaining a healthy immune system. If you are trying to avoid the pollen outside, at-home workout sites like DailyBurn.com will help you get your daily dose of fitness without having to endure the pollen-filled air.
Wash Your Hair: While outdoors, it’s more than common to catch some pollen in your hair. Your beautiful, long locks are a magnet to any outdoor allergy triggers and can have you sneezing and sniffling all night long. If you don’t take the time for a rinse, pollen will stick to anywhere your head will go – including your couch and pillow!
