Nutrition for Allergies

• B6 – helps the body neutralize histamine that is overproduced in allergies
• Folic acid (B5) helps the body neutralize histamine. Many people need the converted form, L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate, instead of simple folic acid.
• Spirulina – Numerous studies show it’s effectiveness for allergies
• Allergy 8 – a useful homeopathic formula for allergies
• Vitamin C – and other antioxidants can be helpful
• Water! – even slight dehydration can increase allergy and asthma symptoms. Make sure to get at least 2 quarts/day, especially in hot weather
