Top Rated Professional Supplements (Part 2)

According to a registered consultant of the National Institute of Health (NIH) and dietitian, Carol Haggans, “Supplements are useful for filling the gaps between your diets.” In the US, more than half of the American population takes dietary supplements either occasionally or daily. Some of these common supplements include minerals, vitamins and botanicals (herbal products).

The reason why people take supplements is either because they are not able to keep up with their diet and the recommended vegetables and fruits intake or when they are suffering from some kind of disorder and have a deficiency. The point is, supplements are used for a various number of reasons and all of them have one outcome: a healthy and fit body.

Today, there are various supplements available online, which cannot be trusted. This is why we have come up with further more top rated professional supplements that you can get from a health care provider:

Is Fall Really the Season of Allergies?

While any time of the year may bring with it certain things that can trigger allergies, fall is often ranked as one tough season for some people. All that raking of leaves to do to get your porch looking presentable again is bound to lead to some itchy eyes and endless sneezing.

So, which one of us is more susceptible to get an allergic reaction during this time of the year?

Well, if you are sensitive to mold or ragweed pollen, you have got to be a lot more careful about things during fall. If you thought spring is the only time where pollen is everywhere, you thought wrong. Did you know that just one ragweed plant can end up producing almost a billion pollen grains?

And that’s just one single ragweed plant we are talking about.

On the other hand, you have mold to watch out for. Who would have thought that all those damp fallen leaves which you get during autumn might be one of the most favorite places of mold to grow at!

So, now you know what to watch out for, the next thing to focus is what to do about it. If it is pollen that’s got you worried, then in addition to keeping the windows and doors closed to keep all the pollen out, try not to bring any inside it with yourself too! Cardigans, shoes etc. should all be taken off before you enter the house. And just to be on the safer side, you might also not want to line dry your laundry. You do not want any pollen to come inside the house.

If mold is your enemy, then make sure you take your raking duties very seriously. No damp leaves on the ground means giving mold zero chance to grow near your place and string trouble for you. Using a dehumidifier inside the house is also a great and super effective measure to keep your house’s insides mold-free as well.

In case, you still get an allergy during fall, there are some great products out there that can help relieve allergic symptoms. Marco Pharma’s Allernest is highly recommended. For adults, the recommended dose is 10 drops every 15 minutes on your tongue (you can even take it with water) till the allergic symptoms go away.

When you start noticing the symptoms getting better, you may take Allernest’s drops less frequently. For children, the dose is half of what you would give to an adult suffering from an allergic reaction.

With Marco Pharma’s Allernest, you should expect an improvement in the symptoms soon enough, but if for some reason, the symptoms do not go away, please do not hesitate in consulting your doctor at your earliest.

It is your health after all, you cannot take it lightly.

Supplements for Allergies: What You Need to Know

There may be several reasons why you may have an allergic reaction to something.

From food to various changes in the environment and a bunch of other things in between may spark an allergic reaction. Our immune system helps us avoid getting sick. Every foreign substance that it detects is fought via anti-bodies. On the other hand, when your immune system picks up a foreign substance and mistakenly interprets it as harmful even when it is not, you may experience allergic symptoms.

The allergic reactions themselves may vary from mild to life-threatening (anaphylaxis)!

Hence, it only makes sense that you should be prepared to deal with it, if the need ever arises. In life-threatening allergic reactions, please get emergency help.

Allergic Symptoms:

Different types of allergies exhibit different types of allergic symptoms, while there are certain allergic symptoms that may be common to more than one type of allergies. For example, skin irritation is one allergic symptom that is common when you are allergic to something in the environment, or you have an allergy to a particular kind of food or even when you are allergic to a particular type of drug/medicine!

Now that you know a little about allergic reactions and the resultant symptoms, let us look into what you can do about them.

OTC Antihistamines and Decongestants:

In most cases, over-the-counter allergic supplements may be just the thing for you. Allergic supplements that fall under these categories are great at providing minor allergic symptom relief. For seasonal allergies, decongestants are better recommended since they help you clear your nose whereas somebody who breaks into hives would find antihistamines to do a better job. Antihistamines block histamine receptors which consequently stops the body from reacting to the allergen.

Several topical creams containing corticosteroids can also be used for relieving several common allergic symptoms like itching, swelling etc.

Supplements for allergies are available in different forms: nasal sprays, tablets, eye drops etc. Plus, most of these OTC anti-allergic medications may cause you to feel a little drowsier than usual. Hence, it would not be a great idea to take an anti-allergic and go driving.

Rest is important.

Also, when you buy any OTC supplement for allergic reaction, please read the instructions and recommended doses for adults and children. This is especially important because different supplements carry different sets of instructions with them and it is imperative that you know what they are. For example, decongestants are not to be taken for more than three days because the body then becomes dependent on them.

Supplements for allergic reactions are generally very effective and help relieve several allergic symptoms in just a few days. However, if you are unable to find relief through these supplements, please consult your doctor at your earliest.

How to: Instant Allergy Relief

We can think of only like a hundred reasons why having an allergic reaction to something is one of the worst things to find yourself amidst in!

After all, there is nothing pleasant about constant watery eyes, runny nose, itchy throat and skin, consecutive sneezes, coughing fits…well, you get the picture. And more than anything you would want in this picture is to get instant relief from all the allergic symptoms you are experiencing at that moment.

Luckily, you have quite a lot of options available to pick from.

Over-the-counter (OTC) antihistamines and decongestants are your best bets. They are extremely effective at relieving mild allergic symptoms that may accompany allergic reactions like hives, hay fever etc.

Antihistamine vs. Decongestants: Which one is for you?

When you experience an allergic reaction, your body secretes histamine. As the name suggests, antihistamine blocks histamine which automatically brings down the allergic symptoms you experience during an allergic reaction.

On the other hand, decongestants work by cutting down on the fluid that builds in the lining of your nose. They are particularly effective for people who experience congestion and blocked or swollen nasal passages as allergic symptoms.

Antihistamines and decongestants both are available in the form of pills and nasal sprays.

So how do you choose between the two?

Research suggests that antihistamines are twice as more effective at relieving your allergic symptoms when they are taken before the onset of the allergic reaction itself. This way they can already build themselves up in your blood before the allergen (the substance that causes allergy) can release histamine. If you have enough antihistamines in your blood, they can easily block the secretion of histamine and then you won’t have to go through the awful allergic symptoms at all.

This makes them ideal for seasonal allergies. When you know that the seasons are about to change and usually that does trigger an allergy, you can ask your doctor if it would be in your best interest to start taking an anti-allergic supplement.

On the other hand, decongestants can be taken once the allergic reaction has already been triggered, you are already experiencing the allergic symptoms and you want some relief. Most people tend to opt for decongestants in the form of a nasal spray. And if you would like to do the same, remember not to use it for more than 3 days straight. Not only do you increase the chances of becoming dependent on the nasal spray, you might even make your allergic symptoms more difficult to treat by default.

Usually, over-the-counter anti-allergic supplements start working almost immediately (you start noticing a difference in your allergic symptoms in a day or two) but if for some reason they do not do their job, it means that your allergic reaction needs the attention of a doctor.

In that case, please do not hesitate in contacting them at your earliest.
