Natural anti-allergic foods not only relieve or even eliminate allergic reactions, but also enhance the body’s immunity and make you healthier. Recently, the US “Health Fortress” website recommended some of the most effective anti-allergic foods. Try to eat a few for each meal, so that the body can gradually resist allergies.
Spices: Spices such as ginger can fight inflammation. Because allergic symptoms such as runny nose and sinus pain are caused by allergic inflammatory reactions in the nasal cavity.
Citrus, pineapple, apple: Vitamin C in citrus is a natural antihistamine (the main ingredient of anti-allergic drugs). Bromelain in pineapple is resistant to inflammation. In addition, a study in the UK showed that eating five apples a week helps improve lung function and relieves breathing difficulties caused by allergies.
Fish: Omega-3 fatty acids in fish can prevent the body from producing too much antibodies and reduce the allergic reactions caused by it.
Sunflower seeds: rich in vitamin E can prevent inflammation, and selenium can enhance immunity and reduce inflammation.
Other foods can cause allergies and should be avoided as much as possible.
Alcohol: Most alcoholic beverages can cause histamine release, especially beer, wine and cider.
Processed foods: Highly processed foods can trigger inflammation and aggravate allergic reactions, especially sinusitis. Common processed foods contain saturated fatty acids and trans fats, nitrites, and excess sugar, all of which cause inflammation.
Pickled foods: The fermentation process in the production of preserved foods produces large amounts of histamine.
