7. Lemons

Lemons are an excellent way to not only improve your immune system, but to prevent allergies before they start. This fruit works as an anti-toxin and will keep your body alkaline at the same time. Simply squeeze half an organic lemon into a glass of water and drink several glasses throughout the day. This will not only stop allergies but remove toxins and other impurities from the body.

 

8. Red Grapes

Oh yes, and when we talk about red grapes we are also talking about red wine, friends!  Resveratrol, the antioxidant in red grapes has powerful anti-inflammatory compounds that can reduce allergy symptoms. One study, performed in 2007, found that children in Crete who consumed a traditional Mediterranean diet, which includes red grapes and wine, had less nasal allergy symptoms and less wheezing. Of course, this isn’t an excuse to overindulge in wine. One glass each day for women and two glasses for men is the maximum but there are always sweet, juicy fresh grapes that you can indulge in to your heart’s content.

 

9. Salmon

Fatty fish like salmon and trout are high in the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. These types of fatty acids are excellent at fighting inflammation and can calm your allergic reactions. Salmon is known for improving lung function as well as reducing the severity of allergic reactions such as congestion and wheezing. Try to include at least two portions of salmon every week, all year long and eat a minimum of 3 servings during peak allergy seasons.
