In recent years, environmental factors and dietary changes are considered to be major contributors to the rise in allergies. The typical ‘Western diet’ includes less fruit and vegetables and has more processed grains, fats and meats. This leads to a significant decrease in the consumption of beneficial plant compounds including antioxidants, flavonoids and polyphenols found in fresh fruits and vegetables.
Bioflavonoids are a compound produced by plants and are beneficial to our health: they assist a healthy inflammation response, support cellular health and promote cellular signalling and communication. The bioflavonoids quercetin, rutin and luteolin can play a role in regulating the body’s histamine response. HistaminX provides these immune-promoting compounds alongside a combination of supportive herbal and plant-derived ingredients that can support seasonal comfort and healthy inflammatory response. These include:
- Stinging Nettle: Traditionally, stinging nettle leaves have been used in teas or other preparations to support respiratory health, healthy mucus membranes, a healthy urinary tract and to promote overall wellbeing.
- Bromelain: A proteolytic enzyme found in pineapple, bromelain can promote a normal inflammatory response. It is used to support the body’s healing processes and assists digestive enzyme activity.
- Glucoraphanin: Found in plants such as broccoli and cauliflower, glucoraphanin promotes healthy detoxification processes, boosts immunity and provides mitochondrial (cellular) support.
