Allergies flare up on the west coast

Allergy season is here early this year and marine supplements may help.
By Castillo Dominici

Runny noses and itchy eyes are already on the rise in areas such as California, Arizona, and Nevada. For many, it’s not a cold, but more than likely, allergies. And here’s why.

Although it may feel like a cold, the pollen levels are very high right now. And yes, it has arrived earlier than usual.

Areas such as southern California, which have experienced a drought, will have more pollen. The dry outdoors, coupled with the winds blowing around pollen, will result in aggravated allergies.

While over-the-counter-antihistamines can help carry allergy sufferers through the hay fever season, many people complain of feeling groggy or not quite themselves because of the medication. A good alternative is an organic daily marine supplement, such Alkylglycerols, from shark liver oil. It is also a good adjunct with over-the-counter or prescription medication, as well.

A daily dose of shark liver oil supplements may lessen allergy symptoms, such as:

  • Itchy nose
  • Itchy and watery eyes
  • Sneezing and post nasal drip

Alkylglycerols, also known as AKGs, may sound familiar to many because it is the same source found in a mother’s breast milk, liver, spleen and bone marrow. AKGs naturally boost a person’s immune system and help decrease the chance of allergies.

Before starting any new supplement, it’s advised to speak to a healthcare professional.
