Snow Molds Triggering your Allergies? Natural Relief Available!

Each year when the snow melts, the irritation and watery eyes that are triggered in sensitive people often mark the beginning of what can be a long season of distressing allergies and reactivity. Yet as opposed to simply suppressing the symptoms with antihistamines, there are several things you can do to fight back at a deeper level of cause. This means calming the immune response by balancing the two major arms of the immune system (Th1 and Th2 discussed below), and preventing inflammation at a cellular level.


As detailed in one of our latest articles articles, our first go-to at Optimum Health for decades has been the DDS superstrain of acidophilus used in our Opti-Elite Probiotics. Given that 70-80% of the immune tissue in our body is found surrounding the gut, this isn't a big surprise.


To further aid in this quest to calm and balance the immune response we have found that our Optimum Immunity, formerly named Opti-Immune C&F, can be invaluable. (As referenced below, particularly the Pau D'arco in the formula can also be anti-fungal, whether it is snow mold or things like candida or food-allergies you are dealing with.)


Our Opti-A.I. Extra formula has the approved claim: "Used in herbal medicine to relieve seasonal allergy symptoms." This is due to its wide range of immune modulating anti-inflammatory and antihistamine ingredients including: quercetin, nettle root, resveratrol, grape seed extract, C3 curcumin TM, standardized boswellia, rosemary, and green tea.
