Spring can be a lovely but challenging season for people with seasonal allergies.
Kefir is a yogurt drink that contains probiotics. These are good-for-you bacteria that live in your gut. They may help prevent and even treat seasonal allergies. You can get probiotics in fermented foods. Look for yogurts that say “live active cultures” on the label. Sauerkraut and kimchi are also good sources.
Onions, peppers, berries, and parsley all have quercetin which is a natural plant chemical. According to Haas, this chemical may reduce “histamine reactions.” Histamines are part of the allergic response.
Kiwi is a fuzzy fruit rich in vitamin C. It can also cut down on histamines. You can get Vitamin C from lots of foods, including oranges and other citrus fruit.
