Glutamine is an essential part of any regime designed to restore healthy mucous membranes quickly and reduce allergic potential. It is also a powerful nutrient for supporting proper immune function and protecting the liver. As part of a daily anti-allergy regime, take 500 mg.
Some supplements contain combinations of these anti-inflammatory nutrients, so you can take them all in one pill.
TEST AND AVOID FOOD ALLERGENS
If you are eating foods that you are unknowingly allergic to, your immune system will be primed to react allergically, and grass pollen may be the last straw. The most common food allergens are wheat and milk. Wheat is a kind of grass, and cows make milk from grass. Many people have observed that during the hay fever season avoiding milk and wheat greatly reduces their allergic sensitivity.
Even if you are not allergic, having large amounts of dairy products tends to be mucus forming. Alcohol also aggravates any allergic reaction and is therefore best avoided, or minimised, during hay fever season.
