Prevent allergies

Allergic diseases have become an increasing problem in the past decade. In fact, studies show that up to 30% of the population in developed countries suffers from at least one atopic disease, such as allergies, asthma, and eczema – to name a few. That’s nearly one-third of the general population! But wait – data also shows that almost 3% of all general consultations in the United Kingdom are for allergic rhinitis. The worst part? There are no acceptable treatments. Except for avoiding the allergen in general or taking medications to control the symptoms.

 

But what if we told you there was something you could do? Studies show that probiotics and prebiotics are an effective way to treat allergic diseases

 

Let’s take it back to the very beginning. Allergic reactions begin in your immune system. They are the result of your immune system’s response to a substance. When your immune system is unable to recognize substances in the body, it releases antigens to fight the unrecognized substance, resulting in an allergic reaction. Research shows that prebiotics and probiotics can boost the immune system and thus, in some cases, help prevent allergic reactions.

In essence, prebiotics and probiotics work together to achieve optimal balance in an ecosystem. Probiotics are live, friendly bacteria that help prevent the accumulation and dominance of bad bacteria (pathogens) in an ecosystem, while prebiotics act as food for the good bacteria. According to The United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization and the World Health Organization, probiotics are “live microorganisms, which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit to the host”. One of these benefits is interacting with the immune system and offering the possibility of modifying the natural course of allergic diseases. Based on various studies, it’s safe to say that synbiotics (the use of both prebiotics and probiotics) offer the ability to curb your symptoms and possibly treat allergic rhinitis. Naturally.
