A cure for allergies?


You know the feeling: stuffy, runny nose, itchy, red eyes, head in a cloud and M-I-S-E-R-A-B-L-E. Not fun at all, right? What if you didn’t have to deal with that and didn’t have to deal with the side effects of antihistamines either? Well, according to researchers the Japanese herbal compound falcarindiol is showing promise for helping us do just that. A study conducted at Nagoya City University, Japan found that the compound acts by suppressing the stimulation of the dendritic cells which regulate immune response. In plain English, falcarindiol calms those cells down so we don’t suffer allergic reactions. Falcarindiol is found in carrots and celeriac foods. No word yet on if there will be a supplement available soon so eat up!
