You Can STOP Allergies This Spring (but Start Now)
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
Spring is just around the corner.
But if you suffer from seasonal allergies, that may not be great news.
In just a matter of weeks, you could be sneezing, coughing and grabbing for a tissue every time you turn around.
And allergy medications and painful shots aren’t much help, either — they just make you drowsy and can even permanently damage to your brain.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. You deserve dependable, safe allergy relief.
Fortunately, some groundbreaking new research shows there’s an unusual, drug-free way to get ahead of your allergies without side effects.
And the best part— it could help your stomach out, too.
These miracle allergy defeaters are probiotics. And the time to start them is now, before spring hits.
That’s right, the helpful little gut bugs that can settle your tummy can also help wrangle your seasonal allergies.
In a recent study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers split folks with seasonal allergies into two groups. For eight weeks during allergy season, half took a probiotic and half took a placebo.
At the beginning and end of the trial, participants took a quality-of-life survey and had their blood analyzed.
And what the researchers found was incredible!
The probiotic group reported significant improvements in quality of life, including a decrease in sneezing, irritation, runny nose and interrupted work.
Even better, they also saw an improvement in immune blood markers related to allergic reactions.
This means taking a probiotic can decrease your allergy symptoms at their source!
That just makes sense, because probiotics are proven to help boost and regulate your immune system. And allergies are essentially your immune system kicking into overdrive and failing to work like it should.
The probiotic taken in this study was a combination of three different bacteria strains: Lactobacillus gasseri KS-13, Bifidobacterium bifidum G9-1 and Bifidobacterium longum MM-2, at a 3 billion-colony total dose.
You can find a probiotic similar to this at vitacost.com for about $6 a month.

Our healthcare system has a fatal flaw. It’s set up to react to illness, NOT prevent it. So, doctors are stuck in a losing game of whack-a-mole. They spend all their energy and time scrambling to knock down symptoms. That means prescriptions for preventative care are virtually nonexistent. And that’s certainly the case with memory...

You have five primary senses: sight, hearing, taste, touch, and smell. (The sixth one doesn’t count. Only your Aunt Mable claims that one.)
