Key Ingredients to Break Down Histamines for Calming Allergies.

Allergies can cause anyone to feel like their trudging through quicksand mentally and physically. The fatigue and brain fog impedes on productivity which is why Zyrtec and Allegra fly off the shelves almost annually. In fact, so many of my patients take an allergy medication year round to keep histamines at bay.

What if there were solutions beyond just Vitamin C and bioflavanoids?

The following suggestions are things we think about when someone has severe allergies, break out in hives, and are becoming more reactive to foods or smells.

One powerful ally is DAO (Diamine Oxidase), an enzyme crucial for breaking down histamines in the body. By incorporating DAO-rich foods like kidney beans, lentils, or organic grass fed meat into your diet, you can support your body's natural defense against histamine overload.

Another key player in histamine regulation is Nrf2, a protein that helps regulate antioxidant response and inflammation. Boost Nrf2 activation by consuming cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, bok choy, or brussle sprouts.

For those who need more support in calming their allergies, take a look at the suggested supplements below:

These are only suggestions to take a look at on the dispensary. The author of this article is merely sharing what is available to you on the market. Should you choose to purchase these supplements, you do so at your own risk. To explore allergies further with a provider, please set up a Discovery Call to discuss how Dr. Lexi can help.

Finally, stress triggers an imbalance in our immune system and increases inflammation, making us more reactive to our environment. Try incorporating stress-reducing practices like yoga, meditation, and deep breathing exercises into your daily routine.

As always, we are here to help if you'ld like to explore a more natural approach to allergies, stress, and your immunity.
