Perilla leaf Stops fall allergies!
Sneezing? Perilla is shown to improve symptoms for 70% of allergy sufferers. It works by inhibiting production of a protein that makes immune cells overreact, triggering an allergic response. Perilla (aka shinso in Japan) also contains antiviral and antibacterial properties, anthocyanins and anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids, a reason study volunteers were found to have fewer inflammatory cells in their blood after taking it!
