About Allergy Supplements

Sneezing, itchy eyes, watery nose, congestion headaches—these are just some of the irritating symptoms associated with allergies. Some of the most common allergic conditions are sinusitis, hayfever, asthma, dermatitis and eczema. These are all referred to as atopic conditions. Though there may be a hereditary component that makes us more susceptible to each of these conditions, we still need contact with an allergen, which is the trigger. These allergens may be pollens, dust or mould spores, or even proteins found in the food we eat. 


The interesting thing about food allergies is that we ingest the allergen. When we are exposed to an environmental allergen, such as a cleaning chemical, we tend to see external signs on the skin that warn us of this immunological assault. When it comes to food allergies, however, we actually consume the allergen, making it trickier to detect. For instance, we may rarely eat kiwi fruit and not pick up on the slight burning or soreness in the mouth for several hours afterwards that can happen if we are allergic.


Kiwi fruit allergy is more common in young children, where they react to a protein called actinidin. This biological effect was reported in Clinical and Experimental Allergy all the way back in 2004. More subtle food allergies (sensitivities) can sometimes just make us feel “off”, tired or unwell, as the allergen winds up our immune system and inflammatory processes over an extended period of time. 


Identifying food allergies is the key to successful management of atopic conditions. The standard method for identification is a skin prick test that assesses primarily IgE. Based on this method of assessment, it was identified in 2014 and published in the journal Methods, that cow’s milk allergies affect somewhere between 2% and 9% of individuals. IgE is a great scientifically validated method that is very helpful for understanding the most overt allergens. However, it does not detect food sensitivities. For this, IgG or IgA methods may be useful. 


With regards to contact allergens that find their way onto our skin, often they also make it into our lungs when we breathe, which our immune system recognises as a foreign molecule. This activates our defense system, involving the immune system and inflammation.   


You might be thinking at this point, why take supplements if we are simply reacting to a chemical or protein? Isn’t this a good thing? To a degree, yes. We do want to have a competent immune system. However, these responses are often excessive and sometimes even harmful in extreme cases. And they can have significant health ramifications, negatively affecting quality of life, if we are constantly exposed to the allergen. Of course, removing the moldy carpets or talking to the neighbours about the daisies that cause you grief is essential.


Fortunately, we can modulate our internal responses to those triggers, if they are mild. We can reduce inflammatory responses and dampen down activity of certain immune cells, such as the T-helper 2 lymphocytes, which can become over-responsive as a result of the modern way of life. There are also herbs and nutrients that simply help with natural symptom management, such as horseradish for mucous congestion and marshmallow root to soothe irritated mucous membranes. 


The bioflavonoid Quercetin plays an important role in the prevention and treatment of mild to moderate atopic conditions. It has been shown to exhibit anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory responses, and also functions as a natural antioxidant and anti-viral compound. Not bad for a mere bioflavonoid. Taken with Vitamin C, it can help to modulate our responsiveness to triggers, like pollens and molds.
