The arrival of spring means the arrival of many beautiful things. Birds fly here and there chirping gladly, plants and flowers get in their full bloom, the grass is greener than ever and the weather is just so beautiful. But many of you keep on adding a tissue to the used pile after every few minutes.
Instead of enjoying the season, you are busy in restocking your medicines and nasal sprays. You avoid going out and are sneezing most of the time. Next time you experience a seasonal allergy, make sure to watch out for your diet instead of restocking the meds.
Let’s have a look at the 7 best foods which help in shooing away the seasonal allergies.
Turmeric is a very popular Indian spice and has many benefits. People use it for the cure of many ailments. It is an anti-inflammatory too. Curcumin is a component of turmeric which stops the production of histamine in our body and hence prevents us from developing any allergy.
Curcumin also slows down inflammation. When a person has higher inflammation, he will have more chance of catching an allergy. It’s better to add turmeric to eggs, soups and smoothies.
Quercetin is a bioflavonoid found richly in apples. It is also present in garlic, berries, cabbage, cauliflower and onions. It basically prevents our body from releasing histamine. When histamine is stopped being released, there are fewer chances of catching an allergy. A study has also suggested that eating apples and fish by pregnant women can lower the chance of developing allergy and asthma in their children.
