Suffering with seasonal
allergies? You can fight back without reaching for a pack of antihistamines by:
• Using a saline nasal spray. By physically cleaning the nasal passages, as well as removing hay-fever triggers such as pollen and dust, you can reduce your symptoms by 27 per cent and the need to take allergy medication by 62 per cent.
• Taking a pine bark supplement. As well as reducing your hay-fever symptoms, pycnogenol
(the active substance in pine bark supplements) reduces the need for a top-up with antihistamines by 75 per
cent. For the best results, look to take a supplement that contains at least 50mg of pycnogenol twice a day.
