Here is what Ethical Nutrients have to tell us about Allergies. Spring is here! Natural options to help you stop and smell the roses!
A-Choo! Does spring make you sneeze?
What Signs and Symptoms Should You Look Out For?
Spring is a beautiful time of the year, but if you suffer from seasonal allergies you may prefer to stay inside and avoid the accompanying irritable symptoms. Seasonal allergies can really put your nose out of joint and can increase the potential of persistent sneezing, a runny nose and sore, watery eyes.
The common name ‘hay fever’ is also known as allergic rhinitis and is an allergic reaction in the inner linings of the nasopharynx (the area where your throat connects to your nose). Hay fever sufferers are triggered by environmental allergens and whilst some experience seasonal symptoms in spring others can experience their hay fever symptoms all year round. If either of these scenarios sound like you, you’re not alone. It is one of the most common ongoing respiratory conditions in Australia, affecting up to 15% of the Australian population - approximately 3.1 million people.
Those affected may be used to carrying around an endless supply of medications and tissues, but what if there was an effective natural alternative to reduce the frequency of hay fever symptoms?
Take control of your hay fever with probiotics!
You may have heard probiotics are the beneficial bacteria that support a healthy digestive system, however you might not be aware there are many different strains of probiotics with each having a particular action in supporting health and wellness. Lactobacillus paracasei (LP-33TM) is a probiotic strain that has been scientifically studied in allergic rhinitis and shown to reduce the frequency and severity of allergy symptoms, such as a runny nose.
Ethical Nutrients Allergy Control contains Lactobacillus paracasei (LP-33TM) at the same dose used in the study. One capsule of Ethical Nutrients Allergy Control per day may help to relieve allergy symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing and puffy, sore eyes. It may assist with house-dust mite allergies as well as relieve hay fever symptoms and reduce allergic sensitivity, which is great for anyone feeling drained by a constant runny nose. With Lactobacillus paracasei (LP-33TM) you can help free yourself from the indoors and might even be able to enjoy long weekend walks or your child’s footy match, without a box of tissues in tow.
Everyday tips for a nose that drips
Don’t Suffer in Silence, Ethical Nutrients May Help…
In addition to taking Ethical Nutrients Allergy Control each day; incorporate strategies that help you to manage respiratory allergies and maintain an allergen-free environment as much as possible. For example:
- Cover pillows and mattresses with anti-allergy covers;
- Use hypo-allergenic materials in your sleeping environment, such as a foam mattress, instead of animal-derived items that may trigger your hay fever symptoms (e.g. wool, duck feathers or horsehair);
- Minimise dust collecting on household items and clean surfaces regularly (e.g. vacuum your curtains as well as carpets);
- Use an air purifier or dust filter;
- Stay indoors on windy days or after storms; and
- Avoid parks and ovals while the grass is being mowed. If it’s your job to mow the lawn at home, covering your mouth and nose with a mask and wearing sunglasses may help reduce your exposure to environmental irritants, then follow up with a shower afterwards.

Small life adjustments like these could make all the difference to your day if you experience allergic rhinitis.
Foods to fight the hay fever
Foods high in the nutrients quercetin and vitamin C may help to reduce histamine production and inflammation, helping to reduce hay fever symptoms. Quercetin is a bioflavonoid found in apples, berries, beans and onions; whilst vitamin C can be found in citrus fruits, blackcurrants, tomatoes, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, pineapple, raw cabbage and sweet potato.
For extra vitamin C combined with immune-supporting zinc, look for Ethical Nutrients Extra C Zingles. These delicious, chewable tablets are gentle on your stomach and teeth and may also be taken to help relieve allergy symptoms. In addition, have a hot cup of tea, as this can provide some much needed symptomatic relief for hay fever sufferers. Tea options include green tea, chamomile, peppermint or ginger, lemon and honey tea.
By making some lifestyle changes and eating plenty of symptom-reducing foods you can help support yourself if you have dust-mite allergies or hay fever symptoms; and remember, with Ethical Nutrients Allergy Control and Ethical Nutrients Extra C Zingles you can get help to knock those allergy symptoms on the head.
