Zašto su ove godine alergije posebno teške i kako si pomoći

Why allergies are particularly difficult this year and how to help yourself

There is almost no clearly defined allergy season anymore, so it is best to start prevention now.


Sniffling, sneezing, itchy red eyes and difficulty breathing - these are all symptoms of pollen allergy, and if they seem particularly difficult and intense this year, it's not just you. People all over the world point out that this year is one of the most difficult so far in terms of allergies, and the reason why it is so is becoming more and more obvious to scientists. 


Mild winters bring symptoms earlier, but also stronger 

Namely, as our winters became milder, without very low temperatures, snow and ice, all plants, including those that cause allergies, began to bloom earlier, so the allergy season has been extended and in some parts of the country it even starts in early February. . But not only those who are allergic to cypresses, birches and similar spring allergens are at risk - the same is true for those who cannot tolerate grass, ragweed or nettle pollen. These plants usually bloom in the fall, but because of the mild and warm days that stretch almost until the very end of the year, allergy season never seems to end. Due to such a high concentration of pollen in the air, even people who have never had symptoms before have been noticing them more and more in recent years.  


Start the fight against allergies on time 

Whatever method of protection against pollen you choose for your organism, the most important thing is to start with them on time. Allergy symptoms are the most difficult to alleviate when they appear, so prevention is the best choice. We used to have a precisely defined schedule - we start preparations for the allergy season at the end of winter, but now any moment is a good time to start, since pollen is present in the air almost all year round.  



Look for a solution against allergies in nature  

Allergies existed long before the first antihistamines appeared, and at that time people looked to nature for relief from itching, sneezing and sniffles. It has the longest tradition in alleviating these symptoms black cumin oil. It is a plant that grows in Europe and Asia, and it was used not only for allergies, but also for other beneficial properties, and these are just some of them.  

  • It protects against allergic reactions and regulates asthma - according to research from 2011 published in American Journal of Otolaryngology, after daily consumption of black cumin for two weeks, relief of symptoms such as stuffy nose, itchy nose, runny nose and sneezing was noted. As he states WebMD, black cumin oil can relieve coughing and shortness of breath caused by asthma. Second research from 2014 points out that these healing properties are due to thymoquinone, which supports lung function by dilating the bronchi.
  • Regulates sugar and cholesterol levels – the same study from 2014 showed that thymoquinone lowers "bad" cholesterol and blood glucose levels, while another study from 2018 shows that black cumin oil increases the secretion of insulin from the beta-cells of the pancreas.
  • It promotes the health of the skin, hair and nails - black cumin oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids and antioxidants, so with regular use it can make the skin, hair and nails stronger and more resistant.
  • Regulates immunity - that black cumin oil helps protect the body from microbes was noticed by people more than a thousand years before Christ, but through extensive research Finally, the effect of this natural ingredient on immunity was proven, as was the mechanism of action itself. Black cumin oil thus strengthens immunity and increases the activity of T-lymphocytes and NK cells that create a natural defense mechanism against viruses, bacteria and fungi.
  • Relieves symptoms of gastritis and stomach infections Thanks to all these properties, black cumin oil has a soothing effect on the first symptoms of gastritis and helps alleviate stomach infections.  



Only the highest quality oil has a strong effect on the body

In order to take advantage of all these benefits that black cumin oil brings, it is necessary to choose the best quality, obtained by cold pressing, because in this way the full spectrum of phytoactive substances is preserved. The oil thus obtained should be dark yellow in color, with an intense smell and a spicy taste. It has exactly such qualities Nigella oil which is produced from seeds that come from Egypt from a standardized supplier with whom they have been cooperating for 13 years. The oil is pressed on a weekly basis and in small batches, which makes quality control even more precise.   

Nigella oil does not contain any additives or fillers, but has a high content of thymoquinone. The stability of all active ingredients is ensured by the dark bottle it comes in, and in order to keep it fresh for as long as possible, store it in a dark and cool place up to 25°C. The best results are achieved after 8 to 12 weeks of regular use, so start using it today to ensure a summer without allergy symptoms.
