Sneezing. Scratching. Coughing. Sniffing. Rubbing. Dripping. Drooling. Sounding like a normal day for you? Then you may have allergies. So what is an allergy? A condition in which the immune system reacts abnormally to a foreign substance. So your body becomes a drama queen towards a foreign substance.
So what is causing your body to do this? Histamine is a chemical created in the body that is released by white blood cells into the bloodstream when the immune system is defending against a potential allergen. This release can result in an allergic reaction from allergy triggers such as pollen, mold, and certain foods.
So you can imagine if the body produces too much HISTAMINE you could have a bit of a problem. Yes your body goes DRAMA QUEEN again. But did you know that histamine has a lot of other responsibilities in the body too? It mediates inflammatory reactions in the body, stomach acid secretion, and has limited neurotransmitter action in the brain. Your body has receptors for histamine in different areas so when the histamine is raised it will obviously create other issues through the body as the body. Histamine receptors are G-protein coupled receptors located in the CNS (Central Nervous System), heart, the vascular system, lungs, sensory nerves, gastrointestinal smooth muscle, immune cells, and the adrenal medulla. What is the adrenal medulla function? The adrenal medulla secretes catecholamines, hormones that help your body respond to stress. Catecholamines include adrenaline and noradrenaline, also known as epinephrine and norepinephrine.
So when the body's histamine increases unnaturally for too long, you can have a lot of issues coming up, and will eventually feel that you just don't know what is going on with you. This is called a HISTAMINE INTOLERANCE.
Common Symptoms of Histamine Intolerance
flushing, especially of the head and chest
irritable bowel syndrome or IBS
congested, runny, or itchy nose
red, itchy, or watery eyes
shortness of breath
hives or red, raised, itchy, burning bumps
very itchy skin
stomach cramps or pain
nausea and vomiting
gas or bloating
very dry, patchy, or scaly skin (eczema)
irregular or increased heart rate
severe menstrual pain
Less common symptoms include:
low blood pressure
swelling around the lips, eyes, and occasionally the throat
loss of consciousness
and now Long Haul COVID symptoms
So as you can see a histamine intolerance creates many issues in the body. Some of which would definitely be confused as some other illness.
These various reactions can multiply and can become quite serious or even fatal when there is too much histamine for the body to break down and eliminate. Life-threatening allergic reactions are more likely to happen with people who have a history of significant histamine intolerance. This is where we can definitely help you in 2 ways.
ESSENTIAL HEALTH ALLERGY RELIEF
Why do we use the ingredients we do?
Ascorbic Acid: Vitamin C acts differently from antihistamine medications, reducing the amount of histamine you produce rather than blocking histamine receptors. Research suggests histamine levels may reduce by about 38% after a person takes 2 grams of vitamin C
Quercetin: Quercetin inhibits the production and release of histamine and other allergic and inflammatory substances, possibly by stabilizing cell membranes of mast cells
Stinging Nettle: Stinging nettle contains antihistamine and anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce the body's production of symptom-causing histamine
Bromelain: According to studies, bromelain has shown to be effective in the treatment of numerous histamine-associated symptoms, while simultaneously improving absorption of certain compounds in the gut
NAC: N-acetyl cysteine is an important supplement for histamine intolerance, as it has shown to be responsible for potentiating inhibitory effects of mast cells on histamine release. N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is an amino acid supplement and a strong antioxidant. In one cell study, it strongly inhibited histidine decarboxylase, the enzyme that makes histamine
So using this product will assist in naturally reducing histamine in the body and also stopping the body producing more histamine.
