Asthmatics who supplemented magnesium demonstrated significant improvements in their asthma symptoms and in their quality of life. Magnesium in this population exhibited anti-inflammatory properties as well.
When supplementing with magnesium, it is important to use high-quality supplements that are superior for their absorption and delivery. You also want a supplement that is synergistic, which means it contains other nutrients that work together to ensure your body can utilize what you are taking. These nutrients will complement one another in order to enhance and extend the capabilities of those nutrients, but also provide phenomenal benefits of their own.
In order to get enough magnesium per day to help with your allergies, I suggest two products. One is called Calcium Plus, which, when taken twice per day, provides 200mg of Magnesium. This is a synergistic formula that will provide you with Calcium, Vitamin D, Magnesium, and the antioxidant Vitamin C.
The second product I recommend for allergies is a powerful antioxidant called OPC-3. This supplement contains grape seed extract, red wine extract, bilberry extract and pine bark extract. Pine bark extract contains Pycnogenol, which is a widely researched antioxidant which have shown positive health outcomes including asthma and allergies. This product demonstrates the following benefits:
* Combats free radicals (from environmental pollution, lack of sleep, from exercise, poor diet, and stress)
* Anti-Inflammatory activity - will help with inflammation caused by allergies
* Helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels
* Helps maintain healthy circulation by strengthening capillaries, arteries and veins
* Helps maintain joint flexibility
* Helps promote cardiovascular health
* Helps reduce mild menstrual cramping and abdominal pain
* Promotes healthy blood vessel dilation
* Supports a healthy complexion
* Supports healthy blood glucose levels
