Now that spring is in full bloom, your allergies may be as well. Your system may be overreacting to all the pretty flowers that have just shown up.

These food tips can help reduce seasonal allergies:

* The flavonoid compound quercetin aids in controlling histamine reaction which is what causes an allergic response. Quercetin can be found in black plums, cranberries, and blueberries.
* Omega-3’s aid in combating inflammation which is what causes the stuffy effect. Flaxseed oil contains an abundance of omega-3’s.
* Increase your Vitamin C intake to give your immune system that extra punch when it’s trying to fight off an allergic reaction. Kale is a great source of Vitamin C.
