Do allergies have you down? Try a natural alternative to your nasal spray and antihistamine!
Are you suffering from allergies this spring? Are you taking nasal steroids like Flonase and/or antihistamines like Benadryl or Zyrtec and still having allergy symptoms? Recent studies have shown that probiotics help at least as much as nasal steroids and antihistamines. One caveat to an effective probiotic is that it should always be refrigerated. Probiotics that sit on the pharmacy shelf or in your cabinet are not as effective as refrigerated probiotics, if they work at all. At Mint Hill Pharmacy, we offer a professional line of refrigerated probiotics, full of active, live cultures. Stop by and ask us about our probiotics. In the meantime, feel free to read this article on the use of probiotics in treating allergies!
