Increasing intake of antioxidants is essential to prevent free radicals, which are often elevated in allergy and asthma suffers. Consuming a diet rich in fatty acid foods such as cold water fish, also include flax seeds, chia seeds, walnuts, garlic, onion, ginger, rosemary, curcumin (turmeric) and the herb Bowellia. Other free radical quenching antioxidants are Vitamin E, Selenium, and Crotenoids. Consider Vitamin C, which is considered one of the most important dietary antioxidants for the protections of the lungs. People who suffer from allergic rhinitis usually have low levels of vitamin C.
Eating a diet rich in antioxidants like green vegetables, fruits, berries and drinking beverages such as tea, red wine and fruit juices are rich sources of beneficial antioxidants known as Flavonoids that can protect against damage in blood vessels, thus decreasing risk of cardiovascular diseases.
As always talk to your doctor about the different ways to relieve allergy symptoms naturally.
