Vitamins against allergies

About 10% of the population suffers from what doctors called atopic allergy. This vast group of diseases includes hay fever (mulligrubs in the eyes, runny nose, offensive, in contact with pollen and mold), allergic eczema (inflamed, red, peel leather, food and pollen allergies), allergic asthma (trouble breathing as a result of inhaled substances that there is sensitivity) and anaphylactic reaction (life-threatening extreme reactions to allergens that precedes the rash, swelling, overcrowding of breath and eventually "shock", under which the medicine was not an emotional crisis, a collapse: a state in which blood pressure drops below the level needed to sustain life).

Allergic symptoms exist because of violations of identification in some parts of the immune defense. Protective system functioned normally, protecting us from the alien. Under the latter, I mean something external: it is either bacteria, viruses or fungi, trying to infect us, or one of our own cells, collecting germinate and trying to become cancer, a substance truly parties of origin, such as drugs, pollen and mold controversy. Most of us are immune system, which establishes peace with the environment, and we therefore do not respond runny eyes, runny nose or a rash on the lead flower pollen or cat fur. Some of us, however, have excessive immune protection those intensive fights when invading foreign substance. And follow this battle allergy sufferer - the human body - pays various painful symptoms. The main culprit of these symptoms - a substance released specific type of immune fighters - mast cells, known as histamine. That is why antihistamine - other substances that help prevent mast cells to release histamine - helping to deter allergic reactions. There is also a food that helps reduce the sensitivity to the world around us. Let's look at them. What helps?

Nicotinic acid and its derivatives - nicotinamide in laboratory experiments to prevent the release of histamine mast cells. Similarly, in the case of allergy in humans nicotinic acid reduces the severity of allergic reactions. Indeed, in human studies, when appointed nicotinamide injections intramuscularly or intravenously, with seasonal allergic suffering there was a rapid reduction of symptoms of hay fever. As these treatments difficult for a family, when you can take nicotinamide within a month.

Recommendations: nicotinamide in a dose of 200 to 300 mg per day should help reduce seasonal allergy symptoms.

Pantothenic acid has been shown in some clinical records, reduces allergic runny nose, and the inherent nose. Recommendation: start with a dose of 100 mg per night. The first signs of alleviating symptoms may occur after 15-30 minutes. If the drug weakens the symptoms can increase the dose to 250 mg once or even twice a day.

For people who are sensitive to glutamine (and as a result can not carry food cooked with monosubstituted glutamate sodium), has been demonstrated some benefits from the use of vitamin B6 (pyridoxine). There is no information that would have shown that the vitamin may be helpful for allergy to other substances. Recommendation: take 50 mg of vitamin B6 daily for at least 12 weeks. The use of vitamin B12 (cyan- balamin) has been shown to act beneficial when allergic asthma, chronic rash (urticaria), chronic allergic dermatitis and sensitivity to sulphite (found, for example, egg yolk and some wines). Recommendations: vitamin B12 (cyan- balamin) to the interior or by injection at a dose of 500 mg weekly for four weeks to achieve ease allergic symptoms. Some medical studies have shown that the application from 2000 to 4000 micrograms of vitamin B12 (cyan- balamin) in the form of hypoglossal (dissolves under the tongue) through quickly - 15 minutes – absorption and conservation action within 24 hours, ideally in the fight against random, but systematic effects allergens. (Such exposure may be when cleaning the attic, visited relatives who kept cats, or when an unknown drink wine, which may contain sulphite.)

A whole lot of clinical research indicates that vitamin C (ascorbic acid) helps to weaken the seasonal allergy symptoms, possibly reducing the release of histamine mast cells, and serves as protection against life-threatening anaphylactic reactions. Recommendation: take from 1 to 4 g of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) daily. If you do not take vitamin C for other reasons, start gradually to 500 mg per day, and increase the dose to 4 grams daily for a week or two. We recommend using a crystalline (powder) form of ascorbic acid instead of tablets or capsules, because it is easier with increased doses. The normal measure of powder, one teaspoon, the equivalent of 4 years Mix this with a dose of drink with citrus flavor (lemon, orange or grapefruit), to soften the taste. It is desirable to use the fizzy drink. For vitamin E, at least for clinical trials, too, have some Antihistamines properties, but precise scientific research so far has been fragmentary. There are many other reasons to take vitamin E, and those of us who are interested in their health and longevity, have already taken it. Recommendation: take a minimum of 200 to 400 ME of vitamin E daily. Start with a dose of 100 ME and check the blood pressure. Some people use vitamin E increases blood pressure. If your pressure is no higher than 140/90 for four or five dimensions, you can increase the dose to 200 ME. Measure again. If your pressure is normal, increase the dose to 400 ME.

Lack of calcium and magnesium may worsen the symptoms of allergic asthmatic. For literary figures, the relationship of calcium and magnesium deficiency with allergic symptoms reliable. Recommendations: to prevent deficiency of these two elements to take a daily basis, not less than 500 mg of calcium and 200 mg of magnesium.

Molybdenum is a trace element necessary for detoxification sulphite, and its content is reduced for the majority of people who are sensitive to sulphite (in egg yolk or fault). Cases of severe sulphite allergic asthma treated with the introduction of molybdenum in the vein twice a week (doses of 250, 500, and 750 mcg). Since intravenous uncomfortable at home, you can take elements within a month. Recommendation: start with about 100 micrograms daily for two to three weeks, then increase to 200 micrograms, and finally to 400 mg if needed.

People with chemical sensitivity deficit of zinc is likely to worsen the condition. The application of this microelement to offset its deficit helps suppress the process of histamine release from mast cells. Recommendation: start with 50-60 mg of zinc in the form of complex compounds (picoline, aspartate) daily. Increase your daily dose of two or, if necessary, three times. Caution: receiving zinc ion form (not related to the compound) from inorganic compounds, such as zinc sulfate, can cause shortages of copper, leading to anemia. Studies have shown that quercetin, one of bioflavonoid, reduces allergic symptoms, preventing the release of histamine from mast cells and inhibiting inflammatory processes. Recommendation: take a total daily dose of 1 to 2 g bioflavonoid complex (containing quercetin), divided into several receptions (for example, 500 mg three times a day), but not longer than two to three weeks.

Oleic acid, HOA, part of the olive oil has been shown to inhibits the release of histamine.


Use this oil wherever possible, in cooking.

Linoleic acid and fish oil are also hampered by inflammatory processes allergic origin - runny nose, watering, red eyes, wheezing breathing, itching and redness of skin rash.

Recommendations: Two capsules EicoPro or a similar domestic product - polyene, from one to three times a day. Acceptable replacement of the product: 500 mg oil evening primrose (source linoleic acid capsules), 100 mg fish oil, 200 ME vitamin E.

Take this combination of one to three times. (Caution for diabetics: fish oil can cause sudden changes in blood sugar in some diabetics. Carefully check the blood sugar when you accept these fats, and stop their use, if blood sugar levels will be difficult to control.)

What worsens?

The continuing effects of irritant substances, of course, compounds the problem. While this statement sounds trite, it is important to draw attention. If you are "allergic" or "sensitive" person and do not pass the test at the allergist at the allergens environment, food and nutritional supplements, it should definitely be done. The best means to cure your painful symptoms - so why exclude them, if the latter is feasible. Sometimes it seems that you are "treat" their immune defense, but if you do not want to live under glass, you must find appropriate ways to solve your problem. In addition to the therapeutic feeding artificial reduction of allergic sensitivity (using allergy injections) can give you a truce with too-active immune system of your body.
