Aller-Essentials is designed to maintain healthy immune function in response to the environment, including healthy mast cell function, nasal function, histamine release, cytokine balance and immune cell activity.*
Uses For Aller-Essentials
Immune Response: In a randomized double blind trial involving 75 individuals, Tinospora cordifolia provided significant support for a healthy immune response by maintaining normal nasal function as well as healthy neutrophil and eiosinophil activity. Beta-1,3/1,6-glucan, a natural polysaccharide extracted from the cell wall of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, has demonstrated the potential to support overall immunity and to maintain healthy cytokine balance. A randomized double blind, placebo-controlled trial involving apple polyphenols reveals support for maintaining a healthy nasal lining and nasal function. Quercetin, hesperidin and vitamin C provide additional support for stabilizing mast cells and maintaining healthy histamine production. Nettle leaf offers a history of clinical and traditional use for maintaining healthy immune response in response to environmental triggers.*
