We’ve waited all winter to watch the snow melt and the first buds of spring start to bloom, there's an almost palpable sense of renewal and rejuvenation in the air. Yet, for many, this beautiful transition comes with a less welcome companion: seasonal allergies.

While we love to welcome the spring weather, the onslaught of pollen and other allergens can transform this joyful time into a period of discomfort and irritation.

Seasonal allergies, symptoms can range from sneezing, nasal congestion, and itchy eyes to more severe reactions that can significantly impede daily life. Despite the prevalence of these allergies, there are practical steps you can take to minimize their impact and enjoy the spring season to its fullest. Here are some lifestyle changes that can help ease the discomfort of seasonal allergies, including the critical role of supplementation.

1. Support Good Gut Health

Good gut health and clear bowels play a pivotal role in managing and controlling allergy symptoms. The gut microbiome influences the immune system's ability to distinguish between harmless substances and actual threats, directly impacting the severity of allergic reactions. A healthy digestive system, characterized by regular bowel movements, ensures the elimination of toxins and allergens, reducing their chance to trigger immune responses. By fostering a balanced gut environment through a nutritious diet, adequate hydration, and probiotics, individuals can strengthen their immune tolerance and mitigate the discomfort associated with allergies.

2. Consider a Liver Detox

The liver, as the body's primary detoxification organ, plays a critical role in managing substances that enter the body, including potential allergens. It processes and eliminates toxins, pollutants, and other foreign substances that could trigger immune reactions. A healthy liver ensures that these compounds are efficiently broken down and removed, reducing the burden on the immune system.

However, when the liver is overloaded or functioning suboptimally due to factors like poor diet, alcohol consumption, and exposure to environmental toxins, its ability to detoxify properly can be compromised. This may lead to increased sensitivity to allergens, as the body becomes less capable of handling these substances effectively.

3. Diet and Lifestyle

Diet and lifestyle choices significantly impact gut and liver health and, by extension, immune responses and allergy susceptibility. Diets rich in processed foods, sugar, and unhealthy fats can contribute to inflammation, dysbiosis, and liver stress. On the other hand, a diet high in fiber, antioxidants, and essential nutrients supports a healthy microbiome, liver function, and overall immune balance.

Lifestyle factors, such as stress management, exercise, and avoiding excessive alcohol and tobacco use, also play crucial roles in maintaining the optimal function of the immune system, gut, and liver.

4. Incorporate Supplementation into Your Daily Routine

Although steering clear of pollen, maintaining cleanliness, and showering frequently serve as fundamental proactive measures to minimize exposure to allergens, sometimes these efforts are not enough on their own. Below, we outline Provita's suggestions for addressing seasonal allergies and achieving relief:

Nigella Black Cumin

Black Cumin (Nigella sativa) has been shown to possess anti-inflammatory and antihistamine properties, making it a beneficial natural remedy for managing seasonal allergies. Its active compound, thymoquinone, can help reduce symptoms such as sneezing, itching, and nasal congestion by modulating the immune response to allergens.

Studies have indicated that Black Cumin seed oil can also support the respiratory system by easing asthma symptoms, closely related to allergic responses, through its anti-inflammatory effects.


Nigellone is a powerful antihistamine with positive effects on breathing and allergies.

Thymoquinone is a powerful antibacterial / anti-fungal with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Researchers also found that Nigella sativa seed oil can be useful against a large number of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.


Hesperidin, a main ingredient in Herperine is a bioflavonoid predominantly found in citrus fruits, has shown promise in supporting the body's response to seasonal allergies.

Its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties contribute to stabilizing mast cells, thereby reducing the release of histamine and other inflammatory substances that exacerbate allergy symptoms. Moreover, hesperidin's ability to enhance capillary stability can also alleviate symptoms by halting the excessive permeability that leads to swelling and redness, offering a natural strategy for managing allergic reactions.


Improvement of breathing, respiratory allergies via Naringin and Hesperidin.

Reduces oxidative stress on arteries and veins endothelium via Diosmin and Hesperidin.

Reduces venous insufficiency and improves spider veins appearance.

Reduces fragility and permeability of capillaries.
