We received Allurtica in exchange for this post. Our opinions and love for the great outdoors remain our own.
Allergies are miserable.
I lived my entire life without allergies until six years ago. That’s when we moved to North Carolina. That’s when I became acquainted with allergies.
Chances are if you’ve been anywhere near social media, you have seen the yellow haze of pollen, photographer Jeremy Gilchrist took while in Durham, North Carolina.
I love the greenery that surrounds me, but it makes me miserable. It makes my eyes itch and water. It makes my throat sore and scratchy. It makes my head ache, my sinuses stuffy (or drippy). My ears get pressure, and the list goes on.
I am not a fan of medications of any sort. I have, however, been living on a main-stay OTC allergy medicine. It makes me tired and thirsty and has ingredients I am not fond of taking day-in-and-day-out, but the alternative, not taking it, is miserable madness with the side-effects of allergies.
Recently, I was introduced to a seasonal support product called Allurtica from Utzy Naturals. It’s an all-natural product that provides seasonal support for allergy sufferers; the best part? It’s non-drowsy. Imagine, no side-effects, only relief!
My husband decided since it is all-natural and he wasn’t willing to start over with allergies, and I could be the beta tester. I stopped taking the OTC allergy medicine I was taking every day–the one that offered relief from allergies.
The recommended dosage of Allurtica is 2-capsule twice a day. I have been known to experience side effects in many things, so I opted to start with ONE capsule, the first day. Then two capsules the next day (one in the morning and one before bed) and work my way up to the recommended dosage.
The first day–when I took only ONE Allurtica, I felt great. My eyes were a little itchy, but remember, I was only taking a quarter of what was recommended. Aside from my eyes, I felt great. I even woke up the next morning and for the first time in a long time, felt good!
I have been taking Allurtica for just shy of one week. I am taking it every day and using the recommended dosage. I find it to be very effective for seasonal support against pollen and environmental allergens.
The natural ingredients combination promotes healthy sinus passages. This is probably my biggest success with Allurtica. I suffer from elevated histamine levels and respiratory irritation, and since taking Allurtica, I can breathe! My nose isn’t stuffy, and I no longer wheeze.
I’m a firm believer in natural medicines. They aren’t addictive and they aren’t filled with harmful toxins and chemicals. It’s simple but works.
I also am a believer that fewer ingredients typically is better. Allurtica contains just SIX natural ingredients.
- Stinging Nettle
- Quercetin Dihydrate
- Rosemary Leaf Extract
- Hesperidin Methyl Chalcone
- N-Acetyl L-Cysteine
Let’s talk about these ingredients.
Stinging nettle may be useful in reducing the symptoms of hay fever by acting as an anti-inflammatory. Some research has linked treatment with stinging nettle to the relief of symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, and itchy eyes. Its potent anti-inflammatory effects.
Quercetin (pronounced kwair-sih-tin) is a plant pigment (flavonoid). It is found in many plants and foods, such as red wine, onions, green tea, apples, berries, Ginkgo biloba, St. John’s wort, American elder, and others. Research suggests that quercetin might be an effective antihistamine, as it restricts histamine from being released from cells. These anti-allergy properties indicate that quercetin might help treat bronchitis and asthma.
Chemically, quercetin is closely related to rutin, another flavonoid. Quercetin lacks a sugar molecule that is attached to rutin. When rutin and quercitrin are digested, intestinal bacteria remove the sugar molecule.
Chemically similar to quercetin, the flavonoid hesperidin has been studied in a variety of contexts in both experimental models and in human clinical trials (Garg 2001). Its chalcone form was specifically studied in 99 atopic individuals in 1949. Today, innovative doctors frequently suggest hesperidin methyl chalcone to patients with allergic symptoms and report clinical effectiveness.
According to a study published in the Journal of Restorative Medicine, the popular herb, Rosemary, contains rosmarinic acid, which has both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. … In other words: Rosmarinic acid should help improve seasonal allergy symptoms.
N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) is another antioxidant that is highly regarded as a natural allergy remedy. NAC is a precursor to glutathione, one of your body’s premier free-radical scavengers. It is also one of the best expectorants and mucus thinners around, helping to reduce congestion.
If you’re looking for natural allergy relief, give Allurtica a try. I’m very happy with it and find that it works well, if not better than the OTC allergy medicine I was taking, without making me drowsy. A 30-day money-back guarantee backs it, so if you don’t have the same results I did, you can return and get a full refund.
