Natural Nasal Decongestant: Helps Your Sinuses When Allergies Strike

You'd like to be able to stop and smell the roses, but right now you can't smell anything. Yep, everything is in bloom, pollen is in the air and your nose is stopped up. While allergy season is upon us, some people have the sneezing, itchy eyes and blocked sinuses year round.

You hate to take those over the counter decongestants because they make you groggy, so what can you do to open up the nasal passages? There are the strips you place across the bridge, but that doesn't address what is actually blocking the sinuses, it just helps open it up.

There are some natural nasal decongestant remedies that help unclog the nose without the side effects of OTC drugs. Here are some herbs and ingredients that can help:

* Quercetin-This ingredient is a flavonoid that is extracted from the skin of red onions and apples. It is a histamine blocker, an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory.

* Vitamin C-This is an antioxidant which is good for overall health and aiding the body in fighting off allergic reactions. It is known for its infection fighting properties which may help prevent your blocked sinuses from worsening into a sinus infection.

* Nettles-This is a tropical plant which acts as a histamine blocker in the body. This can stave off the initial allergic reaction so that it may not progress to blocked sinuses.

* Bioflavonoids-These are extracted from the rind of citrus fruits. It is the white interior of the skin. The bioflavonoids extracted from citrus can be effective in calming inflammation in the sinus passages. They also have antioxidant properties and help the body retain and use more Vitamin C which means more benefits.

* Ginger and Tumeric-Ginger, turmeric is a variety of ginger plant, is an anti-inflammatory particularly of the mucus membranes. Irritated sinuses swell and become highly inflamed during allergy attacks which is part of the reason is becomes hard to breath.

* Eyebright-Originally used to treat conditions of the eye because of its anti-inflammatory properties; it is also used as a natural nasal decongestant. It is believed that tannins found in eyebright are the source of its anti-inflammatory abilities.

* Butterbur-This is a member of the ragweed family so if you are allergic to ragweed, don't take this. If you aren't, then this is also an effective natural nasal decongestant ingredient. It is believed to be anti-histamine and an anti-inflammatory.

A non-processed or synthetic decongestant for nose is great for people who don't like taking synthetic drugs. OTC products are only intended for short-term use. Sprays and drops can become addictive and also lose their efficacy. Some anti-histamine drugs cause an increase in blood pressure which makes them dangerous if you already have high blood pressure.

Even people with low blood pressure can experience caffeinated symptoms like anxiousness and racing pulse. Once off of these OTC items, the body can also have a reaction which worsens the allergies symptoms.

Though the products in a natural nasal decongestant are all-natural, you should still check with your doctor or pharmacist first. Even raw ingredients can cause adverse interactions with other medications you may be taking.

Natural decongestant strengthens your body's ability to fight allergic symptoms. Sneeze less, smile more and bid good-bye to allergy. For natural supplements that promote optimal health, visit
