Consuming local honey may help you develop immunity to local pollen and therefore reduce symptoms of allergies. It has also been proven to help boost your immune system and, it tastes delicious! Bonus! Be careful though, unpasteurised honey can sometimes contain nasties that would be filtered out by commercial producers, so make sure you buy from a reputable local company.
Nuts and seeds
Not just for their omega-3 content, either. Most nuts are rich in magnesium and vitamin E. Magnesium has been shown to have a positive impact on the respiratory system, and as an immune system booster, vitamin E may help to keep symptoms at bay.
Fresh fruits and vegetables
Because they’re loaded with vitamins and antioxidants, fresh vegetables can help to fight potentially harmful free radicals and protect your cells. For some people, this could result in a reduction in the severity of their hay fever symptoms.
A good friend to your immune system, if you’re taking something like MyVitamins Essential Vitamin C on a regular basis, you could be doing more than you think to protect yourself against severe hay fever.
If any of these things work for you, then keep going. Other recommendations, including getting plenty of sleep, reducing stress and exercising regularly are also incredibly important.
