This one contains several ingredients that target allergies – hay fever’s sneezes and sniffles are the worst! Turmeric’s powerful active compound, curcumin, supports normal, healthy histamine release that often leads to congestion when elevated. When histamine levels are normal, this in turn effects your body's response to allergens (ie: itchy eyes, runny nose, sneezing). Mango is high in the antioxidant vitamin C, which also supports normal histamine levels.
Hemp seeds are a good source of magnesium, also thought to be useful in controlling allergic reactions.
