Good Health (Australia) - - Be Informed -

Turmeric

The phy­to­chem­i­cal cur­cumin, which gives turmeric its yel­low-or­ange colour, has anti-in­flam­ma­tory and an­ti­his­tamine po­ten­tial sim­i­lar to med­i­ca­tion.

Pineap­ple

Pineap­ple is a rich source of brome­lain, an enzyme that helps de­crease in­flam­ma­tion and mu­cus pro­duc­tion.

Onion

Onions are a rich source of quercetin, a com­pound that acts as a nat­u­ral an­ti­his­tamine. Quercetin is also found in ap­ples, kale, red grapes, cher­ries and pars­ley.

Gin­ger

Use it fresh in your cook­ing or a juice and its nat­u­ral an­ti­in­flam­ma­tory ac­tion may help re­duce nasal swelling and hay fever symp­toms.
