As spring approaches, millions of people begin to feel the effect of pollen and seasonal allergies. Sneezing, itching, and watery eyes are often the hallmark that spring has arrived in full force. Allergies will often send our immune systems into overdrive but there are ways to help keep them calm and balanced.
Supporting your health from the inside out is very important, and with 50 years of knowledge and science-based research under our belts, we’ve got some good ideas to help keep your immune system strong.
What Causes Allergies
Seasonal spring allergies are often caused by trees like cedar and birch with their pollen aggravating our systems. It’s possible for pollen to travel many miles and still affect our sinuses. While staying indoors the entire year is now out of the question, let’s talk about some ways you can help combat these allergies and defend your immune system.
How Allergies Can Affect Our Gut Health
At its peak functionality, a healthy gut can better resist allergies, asthma, and other pathogens throughout your daily life. However, when you’re faced with unchecked toxins, antibiotics, and bacteria, it can take a toll on your gut health.
Around 70% of our immune system resides in the gut. Therefore, by supporting the healthy bacteria in your stomach’s biome, you can help your body be in good shape to defend itself against foreign invaders. This can then lead to a higher-functioning immune system and overall good health.
Another way to boost your immune system is to make sure your white blood cell production is optimal. White blood cells search and destroy unhealthy pathogens before they can spread infection throughout the body.
Drinking a natural supplement like Lily of the Desert’s Aloe Juice can help improve your gut health and also help increase white blood cell production. By increasing your white blood cell production, you improve your body’s chances of staying healthy.
How Aloe Can Support Digestion & Immune Health
Aloe vera acts as a natural adaptogen, meaning it can help the body adapt to common physical, chemical, and biological stressors. This can be incredibly beneficial during spring allergy season, as our environment brings about more pollen and bacteria in the air.
Additionally, Lily’s aloe is an ideal supplement for increased nutrient absorption of Vitamin C and other essential minerals. In the case of seasonal allergies, many take Vitamin C to help combat the symptoms that come with pollen and airborne toxins. Lily of the Desert can help boost your natural nutrient absorption levels through a daily dose of aloe.
Aloesorb Helps Boost Immunity
For over 5,000 years, aloe vera has been used both internally and topically for multiple health benefits. From improving healthy digestion and immune support, to helping increase antioxidant and nutrient absorption levels, aloe covers a wide range of bodily functions that work together to create whole-body health.
However, Lily of the Desert goes beyond normal efficacy with our unique patent-pending process called Aloesorb. Infused into each of our aloe products, Aloesorb works to maximize the products’ efficacy and deliver you with enhanced aloe benefits.
Did you know Aloesorb helps boost white blood cell levels farther than that of regular aloe vera? That works to buffer our immune systems with added protection against bacteria and illness. It also enhances the 200 biologically active components that aloe naturally contains, such as vitamins, amino acids, enzymes, and polysaccharides. When you use Lily of the Desert, you’re helping support proper digestion and gut health, which also directly affects immune health.
Whole Body Wellness, Inside & Out
Not only is it important to take care of your body on the inside, but it’s also important to take care of it on the outside. Make sure you’re protected even without soap and water at hand. Antiviral hand sanitizer is a safe and convenient way to clean your hands when you’re on the go. However, as they’re often used with harsh chemicals to kill off the germs, they can leave the skin feeling dry or irritated after frequent use.
That’s where Lily’s Hand Sanitizer with Natural Aloe Vera comes in. It won’t dry out your skin or expose you to unnecessary toxic chemicals. Instead, our formula combines powerful ethyl alcohol with soothing aloe vera to naturally moisturize the skin after each use.
Plus, as spring begins to release its seasonal allergies and high pollen levels, you have a greater chance of sneezing more than normal. Be sure to armor up and stay ahead of the curve with a bottle of Lily hand sanitizer.
Allergies are also known to irritate and dry out our skin. Whether you’re in the middle of a sneeze chain or need to frequently blow your nose, it may be good to keep our 99% Aloe Vera Gelly nearby. It gently soothes the skin while hydrating at least three of our epidermal layers, so you can enjoy feeling replenished and revitalized.
