DHist Natural Antihistamine QA April 2019

Q: My seasonal allergies are particularly bad this year…my nose is runny, my eyes and soft palate are itchy, and my sinuses are all plugged up! Is there anything other than the usual over-the-counter antihistamines that may help?

A:  OTCanthistamines such as diphenhydramine, cetirizine, and loratadine are staples amongst those who suffer from the symptoms of seasonal allergies as they block the action of histamine in the respiratory tract. Natural D-Hist™ from OrthoMolecular Products contains ingredients that stabilize mast cells (i.e., the very cells that release histamine) so that they do not as readily release their contents, which translates into fewer allergy symptoms. Furthermore, D-Hist™ also improves the health of the mucosal tissue in the respiratory tract as well as balance the immune response. At a dose of two capsules taken three times a day, benefits can be felt within a week.
