warning sign stating allergy season ahead
Keystone Pharmacy - April 11, 2023

People all across the country deal with allergy issues. When things outside start to bloom and the pollen begins to fly through the sky, you might find yourself with a runny nose and watery, itchy eyes. Luckily, you don’t have to suffer this year or stay inside for the entire spring! Here are 4 of the best products for seasonal allergy relief:

1. Seasonal Support

Seasonal Support is a targeted blend of flavonoids, antioxidants, proteolytic enzymes, and botanicals designed to provide comprehensive support for seasonal challenges caused by common environmental allergens. For a better understanding of how this product works, let’s take a look at some of its key components. Quercetin is known for its ability to stabilize mast cells, diminishing the release of histamine, the compound known to cause hypersensitivity reactions during seasonal changes. Urtica dioica, commonly known as stinging nettles, is a plant that has been shown to balance immune response, specifically in the airways and nasal passages. Next, Bromelain has been shown to reduce circulating allergenic protein complexes associated with hyper-immune sensitivity and seasonal discomfort. Finally, N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is an amino acid precursor to one of the most important antioxidants in the body, glutathione. Both glutathione and NAC help reduce the viscosity of the mucus allowing for the clearing of the airways and improving respiratory health.

2. Nasal Rinses

One of the best ways to get some seasonal allergy relief is to keep your nasal passages free of allergens. This can be done with the use of nasal rinses, such as a neti pot. This is a container that is designed to rinse debris and mucus from your nasal cavity. When you are having trouble breathing due to a stuffy nose, you can use a nasal rinse to clear out your nasal passages making it easier to breathe. Other nasal irrigation devices include bulb syringes and squeeze bottles, which are typically used on younger children.

3. Ponaris

Ponaris is a nasal emollient that is used to relieve allergy symptoms such as nasal congestion, post-nasal drip, and nasal dryness. The thing that makes this product so effective is that it is composed of helpful oils that can reduce irritation in your nasal passages. These include pine, eucalyptus, and peppermint. You can find Ponaris Nasal Emollient at our independent compounding pharmacy in Michigan.

4. Prescription Allergy Medication

If you find that over-the-counter allergy medicine isn’t doing the trick, it may be time to visit your primary care physician to get some additional treatment. They can refer you to a professional allergist who can do a simple test to see exactly what in the air is causing your allergies to flare up. They can also prescribe allergy medications and may advise allergy shots as another possible solution. At our pharmacy, we have a convenient drive-thru where you can pick up all your medication prescriptions, and be sure to ask about our incredible med sync program as well! This is a way for you to make fewer trips to the pharmacy but still get all the medicine that your body needs!
