We recently moved our clocks forward, and Spring is definitely in
the air. So are clouds of oak pollen and other kinds of pollen. At this
time of year, there are many mornings when people find a fresh dusting of
yellow on their cars. There are literally tons of pollen in the air.
Birds are singing and allergy sufferers are sniffling and sneezing. Also, their
eyes are watering and their throats are scratchy. It’s not a fun time of the
year for the tens of millions of people who suffer from seasonal allergies.
Allergic reactions begin in the immune system. Allergens are
substances that fool the immune system into treating the allergens like
invaders. The immune system reacts to allergens by producing antibodies to get
rid of the invaders. The antibodies travel to cells where they release
histamines. That’s why many allergy medicines are called anti-histamines.
In addition to pollen, some of the most common allergens are dust,
mold, insect stings, animal dander, some foods, and some medications. Allergens
can trigger symptoms in the nose, throat, lungs, ears, and sinuses. The
reason some people react differently to allergens than other people is that
they have some type of inflammation, which causes their immune systems to react
How does Vibrant Life spell relief? AllerCaps
Business is booming at drugstores and grocery stores where people
who are desperate for relief from allergy symptoms are seeking remedies among
the numerous products that are available. Although some of those
over-the-counter antihistamines may help, it can be very difficult to find one
that relieves allergy symptoms without also causing drowsiness.
Fortunately, Vibrant Life Health Center has a natural supplement
to counteract allergy symptoms without putting patients to sleep. AllerCaps is
a comprehensive nutraceutical formula that promotes healthy inflammatory
support and immune health.
According to the Merriam
Webster dictionary, a nutraceutical is, “a foodstuff (as a fortified food or a
dietary supplement) that is held to provide health or medical benefits in
addition to its basic nutritional value—called also functional food.”
Unlike antihistamines which treat allergy symptoms, AllerCaps
relieve inflammation and help the immune system to operate normally. That’s why
they frequently work better than antihistamines. AllerCaps are highly
recommended by many practitioners.
Premier Research Labs and Nucleo-Immune
AllerCaps are produced by Premier Research Labs (PRL), a world
leader in Cellular Resonant Technology. Cellular Resonant Technology has
enabled PRL to develop supplements that interact with the body at the cellular
level to produce the best possible results.
PRL provides products that are completely free of toxic chemicals
through the entire manufacturing process. While other producers of nutritional
supplements use toxic chemicals called excipients in their manufacturing, PRL
products are excipient-free. PRL tests every incoming container of raw material
for superior quality control. They guarantee that what you see on the label is
exactly what is in the product.
In addition to AllerCaps, PRL
produces other excellent nutritional supplements which are available at the
Vibrant Life Health Center. One of them is Nucleo-Immune, a dietary supplement
which promotes rapid cellular rejuvenation and healing of wounds. It also
increases vitality and strength. Nucleo-Immune supports the thymus, the
intestinal and immune systems, and is very effective as a booster during the
cold and winter season.
Since it boosts the immune
system, Nucleo-Immune, also helps allergy sufferers. It is available through
the Vibrant Life Health Center. Give yourself a boost for the season and get
Essential oils help to detoxify the body and fight infections.
They can also be used to fight inflammation, boost the immune system, and
relieve allergy symptoms. They can be put into the air of any home with an
inexpensive diffuser. Some can be applied directly to the skin.

Peppermint Oil can unclog the sinuses and
provide relief to scratchy throats. Peppermint is an expectorant, which means
that it will help you to cough up and purge phlegm. It also reduces
inflammation, one of the leading causes of allergy symptoms.
Basil Oil is anotheressential oil that reduces
inflammation. It’s also good for the adrenal glands, which help to produce over
50 hormones that are involved in nearly every bodily function.
Eucalyptus Oil improves circulation and reduces allergy
symptoms by opening up the lungs and sinuses. Eucalyptus contains citronellal,
which is an analgesic and anti-inflammatory. Eucalyptus also cleanses
the body of toxins and microorganisms.
Lemon Oil helps to drain the lymphatic system, inhibits
the growth of bacteria, and boosts the immune system. In the home, lemon oil
can kill bacteria and eliminate allergy triggers present in the air.
Lavender is a
natural antihistamine. In addition to being effective for relieving
allergy symptoms, lavender has a calming and soothing effect on the body. It
has been known to help people relax and go to sleep at night.
Tea Tree Oil can destroy airborne pathogens. It is an
antiseptic agent with anti-inflammatory properties. Diffusing tea tree oilin
the home will kill mold, bacteria and fungi. Tea tree oil can be applied to the
skin to kill bacteria and microorganisms. It can also be used as a household
Roman Chamomile is frequently used for
aromatherapy and it is also used for its soothing properties. It can also help
