Allergies, Hay Fever, Allergic Rhinitis.
If you are on the search for natural hay fever cures, you might want to give the superfood Spirulina a try.
You can find details of its origin and its history on our page, “What is spirulina about?”
We also explain the importance of selecting the right Spirulina for you.
Why Try it?
Evidence published is this Turkish study (1) and deposited at the US National Library of Medicine, describes how Spirulina is clinically effective with Allergic Rhinitis more commonly known as hay fever.
My anecdotal experience confirms this. Where I live, there is a lot of dust and plenty of pollen in the air. I used to suffer from hay fever at Springtime. No longer.
An unplanned benefit I noticed after taking Spirulina regularly, has been that I no longer suffer from allergies or hay fever*.
I had originally taken spirulina on the advice of an Alternative Remedy Doctor to help my “fatty liver”, kidneys and type 2 diabetes. But apparently this superfood was also helping the symptoms of hay fever too. Or at least I no longer had any despite the dust and pollen at spring time.
If you are on the search for natural hay fever cures, a further US based study (2) on patients of Allergic Rhinitis highlighted how Spirulina can help. And animal studies (3) dating back to 2005 have demonstrated this too. This super food might just help you with your Hay Fever symptoms including; sneezing, blocked nose (nasal congestion) and itching. Might it be worth a try perhaps?
