Hay Fever and Probiotics

The wife is having a rough time this year with hay fever. I asked her to try one of the suggestions below and she noticed improvement within a hour.

So for all of you that are overdosing on antihistamines, this post may help.

The last item does not have any studies that I could find, I did find that with seasonal allergies that “The pollen season induced a reduction in Bifidobacterium, Clostridium and Bacteroides which could not be prevented by the [Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium] probiotic intervention. “[2009]. The study did not try Miyarisan (Clostridium butyricum), which the wife found helped quickly.

Bottom Line

Encouraging or supplementing Bifidobacterium and Clostridium as probiotics should reduce severity. Most of the studies used Bifidobacterium.
