Why Our Seasonal Allergy Formula?
Developed in partnership with a genuine American herbalist, Jeanne Burgess, Seasonal Allergy (long called ALJ) has been a top-selling product for years. Each ingredient in this formula provides unique support. Great care goes into the planting and harvesting of our ingredients. For instance, fenugreek seed thrives in northern India where local farmers hand-sow the crop after the monsoon season. Then they carefully irrigate four times during the 110-day growth cycle. Plants are hand-cut then threshed to separate the seeds, which dry in the sun.
The Greeks and Romans fed fenugreek to their cattle (part of its Latin name, foenum graecum, means Greek hay). The Egyptians used it for embalming. Horseradish goes back more than 3,000 years. The Greeks and Romans applied it to muscle aches and cramps. They also consumed it for help with coughs. In folklore medicines, poultices of this herb have been employed to ease gout and sciatica, and even in attempts to remove freckles! Mullein, aka Adam’s Flannel, Beggar’s blanket and torch weed, contains mucilage, gum, saponins, flavonoids and other beneficial compounds. According to the European Union Monograph, its traditional use is in relieving sore throat linked to dry cough and cold. Seasonal Allergy formula…only from Nature’s Sunshine.
How It Works
Airborne particles are everywhere. When particles enter the respiratory system via the nose or the mouth, the body turns on its cleansing mechanisms, and the immune system is put on active duty. Herbal nourishment supports a healthy respiratory system that can be challenged by inhaled irritants. The herbal formula ALJ helps balance the natural eliminative functions of the respiratory system. It supports healthy lung function and helps support the body during seasonal changes. Fenugreek and mullein contain mucilage, a substance that causes the herbs to swell in water. This creates a viscous, fibrous substance that provides a soothing effect. Fennel has traditionally been used as a cleansing herb and is often used after eating. Indians used boneset during seasonal times when the body needed extra nutritional support. Horseradish has a stimulating effect on the respiratory system, which you can easily discover for yourself by eating a small amount of the freshly grated herb.
