Fight Seasonal Allergies With Turmeric

If you have ever talked to me about pain issues, there is no doubt that you know how I feel about Turmeric, but did you know that turmeric also has an amazing effect on seasonal allergies?

Itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, runny nose, and other seasonal allergy symptoms can be so miserable that it can hinder your ability to appreciate the beauty of spring.  If you are experiencing these symptoms, it is your bodies immune and inflammatory response to all that pollen. Your body releases histamines to get rid of the allergen, which increases mucous production, which results in a stuffy or runny nose, sinus infections, watery + itchy eyes, and more.

Turmeric can help.  Turmerics active ingredient is curcumin, which blocks mast cells from releasing histamine. It has the ability to remove excess mucous and reduce inflammation in the sinuses and respiratory tract. Turmeric can benefit sufferers of hay fever, asthma, bronchitis, and allergies.

Making the Most of Your Turmeric Supplement

Approximately 5% of turmeric's active compound is curcumin, and about 5% of black pepper is comprised of the compound called piperine. Piperine is a potent inhibitor of drug metabolism. One of the ways our liver gets rid of foreign substances is making them water soluble so they can be more easily excreted. But this black pepper molecule inhibits that process.

Turmeric taken alone will result in only a small rise of curcumin in the blood stream because our liver actively tries to get rid of it. But the curcumin levels skyrocket when we add in peperine which slows the bodies process to rid the body of curcumin. The same amount of curcumin consumed, but with peperine, the bioavailability shoots up 2000%.

If You Aren't Using Quality Supplements, You Might As Well Not Spend The Money

Not all supplements are created equal.  It is important to purchase products from the best supplement brands which are trusted among professionals to provide the purest, most high-quality supplements available.  

It is equally important that your source be trusted to handle the supplements properly before selling them to you.  For instance, supplements that are stored in a hot warehouse lose their potency.

The Herbal Toad carries only supplements with pharmaceutical-grade ingredients. These supplement brands go above-and-beyond the call of duty to adhere to very rigid manufacturing guidelines required by the FDA to be able to be trusted by healthcare practitioners around the world.
