The Best Diet For Allergies and Hay Fever
by Michael Floria
infections can be as simple as eating the right foods that contain the proper nutrients.
Mediterranean diets typically include nuts, apples, grapes, oranges and tomatoes - all
foods that contain anti-inflammatory properties that can help to protect against
- Nuts. Can be an excellent source of magnesium and vitamin E. Magnesium may
help to protect against wheezing and has proven to help increase lung function.
- Apples, Oranges, and Tomatoes. These fruits are excellent sources of
another important antioxidant, vitamin C. The antioxidant provided in these
fruits helps to protect against allergies and asthma. Since almost half the people
who have asthma also have allergies this is an important benefit.
- Grapes. The skins of red grapes are filled with another important antioxidant -
resveratrol, which may help to reduce inflammation in the body. Studies have
shown that grapes also provide additional protection against both allergies and
wheezing. So a glass of red wine with your dinner may help with your wheezing.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids:
Another important resource to consider in your fight against allergies are the omega-
3 fatty acids DHA and EPA that are provided when your diet includes cold water fish
such as wild salmon, albacore tuna and mackerel. They are all excellent sources of
omega-3 fatty acids. If you aren't a big fan of eating fish you should consider fish oil
supplements which can be an excellent source as well.
Zinc also plays an important role in helping your boy to fight infection. Zinc has both
antibacterial and antiviral benefits in your body that can help to improve your immune
system. You will find that excellent sources of zinc include oysters, lean beef, whole
grains and tofu.

decongestant for some people because it can stimulate nerve fibers.
- Garlic. One of my favorite cooking herbs and it may help make mucus less
- Horseradish. A chemical similar to one used in decongestants is also found in
