Oh fall, you have our hearts! Cooler weather, family time, everything pumpkin... and then there are allergies. Boo!

If you're an allergy sufferer, then you know just how annoying and frustrating it can be to not be able to escape the itchy, watery eyes, the runny nose, and the constant sneezing. And whereas the common solution is to stock up on over-the-counter antihistamines, most antihistamines just add to the problem, causing a host of side effects that are almost worse than the allergy symptoms. YIKES.

For instance, Claritin (loratadine) can cause tiredness, sore stomach, and headaches. Benadryl  (diphenhydramine) can cause dizziness, blurred vision and constipation. Allegra (fexofenadine ) can cause back pain, drowsiness, and cramps.

This is where finding the right antihistamine because crucial. Our recommendation: Vitamin C.

Vitamin C breaks down histamine and reduces the amount of histamine in the blood stream. This helps to alleviate symptoms such as sneezing, watery eyes, headaches, and sore throat; everything that an over the counter drug antihistamine product is supposed to do.

Other benefits of vitamin C include:

  • Make collagen for improved skin tone and thicker hair
  • Supports the adrenal glands, which helps keep energy up during times of stress
  • Supports the immune system, which is helpful pretty much all year long, but especially when allergies arrive.
  • Helps to maintain healthy cholesterol levels
  • Supports heart health
  • Helps promote blood vessel and arterial health
  • Enhances the body’s natural detoxification processes

So what do you say? Stock up on your vitamin C today save yourself the allergy season headache!
