Spring is here! The days are getting longer and warmer. All of us are ready to shed the winter and get out more. The flowers, trees, and grass are blooming. What does that mean?
I’m going to share my favorite supplements to get ready for spring allergies to help you be proactive before your allergies start.
Optimize Your Vitamin C
Getting more than enough Vitamin C helps your immune system work efficiently. Allergies are a result of your immune system overreacting to pollen, dander or dust.
I recommend taking Vitamin C in a form that will be well absorbed and easily available to your system. Getting enough Vitamin C assures that your immune system will be able to handle infectious threats as well as stabilizing your system during allergies.

Spice Things Up with Tumeric
Turmeric can help with many inflammatory illnesses. Having turmeric in the kitchen is a good idea for this reason.
Turmeric (or Curcumin) “was found to exert diverse immunomodulatory effects, including suppression of IL-4, IL-8, and tumor necrosis factor α and increased production of IL-10 and soluble intercellular adhesion molecule” 1
I recommend Theracurmin (find my recommendations in my Fullscripts Cedar Fever and Allergy Survival Protocol)
Anxiety and depression often occur, or get worse, during allergy season. The same inflammatory markers that worsen allergies also worsen depression. Having allergies can worsen these conditions as well2.
I recommend keeping calm during allergy season. Activating the Parasympathetic Nervous System using tools such as meditation or Reiki is one way to calm your nerves.
Magnesium is an excellent way to relax especially at night. Adequate magnesium can decrease headaches, muscle spasms, and improve sleep.
