Does Drinking Water Help Alleviate Seasonal Allergies?
You’ll find no shortage of high praise for water’s numerous beneficial effects for your body and overall health, but this latest fact might surprise even the most devoted water drinkers out there. When spring rolls around, and with it comes pollen and other sneeze-inducing irritants, it might be especially beneficial to reach for a cold bottle of Absopure water to quell those seasonal allergies.
With beautiful blooms comes the release of tons of pollen, spores and other irritants. If you didn’t know already, ragweed is widely regarded as the greatest culprit behind seasonal allergies, especially in the Midwest. When these irritants get into your system they tend to wreak havoc, causing a laundry list of inconveniences that can keep you from enjoying all of the joy that spring brings. Swelling, red and watery eyes, itchy and runny nose, stuffed sinuses and sneezing are the most common symptoms of seasonal allergies. This is due to histamine reactions within your body, greatly exacerbated by dehydration.
While you’re probably well aware of the overall health benefits that come from keeping your body hydrated, you might not be sure of how exactly water is supposed to help you combat seasonal allergies. The answer boils down to the fact that water works wonders by constantly flushing your systems clean. So, it makes sense that if you’re constantly washing your body of internal irritants, they’re far less likely to build up enough to create unwanted symptoms. Another thing to consider is the fact that hydration is excellent at thinning out mucus, which stops that stuffed up feeling, stemming headaches and other congestion induced problems.
Although any type of Absopure water will benefit you greatly in your battle against allergies, there is some specific praise for electrolytes’ anti-histamine characteristics. Fortunately, Absopure Plus is a delicious and refreshing option that is infused with electrolytes too!
