In a new article from eProbiotics.com, the author discusses how probiotics and probiotic supplements are effective in reducing allergies. For centuries, ancient Chinese medicine has pointed to poor gut health as a primary cause of allergies. New medical research supports this claim, demonstrating a direct correlation between severity of allergies and the health of the digestive system.
While most people suffering from allergies reach for antihistamines or other harsh medications, certain foods, like whole grains, fruits, vegetables and especially probiotics may hold the answer for calming allergies for good.
The article details research that demonstrates that whole grains are also rich in specific type of dietary fiber, called beta-glucan. Beta-glucan has been shown to positively influence the creation of immune system response cells which attack and destroy pathogens, including the allergens that cause a variety of allergic responses.
Quercetin and antioxidants may also be effective natural remedies for reducing the severity of allergies and allergic reactions. Antioxidants, especially vitamin E and vitamin C, have demonstrated the ability to neutralize histamines and assist with the growth and repair of damaged cells; minimizing the risk of allergies. Quercetin prohibits the release of histamines, the prime source of allergic reactions and can be found in green leafy vegetables, onions, apples, and garlic.
Food allergies are also a result of damaged intestinal lining and a lack of probiotics, or healthy bacteria, in the body. The increased use of antibiotics, prescription medications, treated water, and processed foods throughout western countries has resulted in a significant decrease in the percentage of healthy probiotics found in the body. In addition to causing digestive issues, this decrease in probiotics is directly correlated with a significant increase in allergies.
Supplementing with probiotics and probiotic supplements exposes the body to bacteria and replenishes the supply of healthy bacteria found in the body, promoting healthy digestion, supporting the immune system and preventing allergies. Supplementing with probiotics has not only been successful in preventing allergic reactions, but also decreased severity and incidence of both eczema and asthma.
