Professionally formulated herbal preparation designed to help support healthy immune function for optimal health. A healthy immune system improves resistance to and recovery from allergies. Beneficial for allergic skin issues and mild dermatological conditions. For symptoms of respiratory allergies. Assists in support of immune function and response to help strengthen mucus membranes against airborne allergens.
Respiratory and skin allergies occur in horses during the usual spring period but also at other times and for no specific reason. Allergy symptoms, which depend on the substance involved, can affect the airways, sinuses and nasal passages, skin, and digestive system. Reactions can range from mild to severe – from runny eye and nose with watery fluid, to head flicking and particularly irritating skin rashes. An allergen is typically defined as a usually harmless substance capable of triggering a response that starts in the immune system and results in an allergic reaction.
An allergy starts when the immune system mistakes a normally harmless substance for a dangerous invader. The immune system then produces antibodies that remain on the alert for that particular allergen. When you’re exposed to the allergen again, these antibodies can release a number of immune system chemicals, such as histamine, that cause allergy symptoms. The underlying mechanism involves immunoglobulin E antibodies (IgE), part of the body’s immune system, binding to an allergen and then to a receptor on mast cells or basophils where it triggers the release of inflammatory chemicals such as histamine – called mast cell degranulation.
Botanical ingredients can help support the body to reduce the impact of
allergies by reducing the bodies allergic response
Baical Skullcap Root
Supports the anti-allergenic and anti-inflammatory mechanisms of the body. Baical Skullcap supports the anti-allergenic action which inhibits mast cell release of histamine (degranulation) – which causes allergic symptoms and also supports the inhibition of prostaglandin production. Prostaglandins are produced in nearly all cells and are part of the body’s way of dealing with injury and illness. Prostaglandins act as signals to control several different processes depending on the part of the body in which they are made. Inhibiting prostaglandin production reduces the body’s response to allergens. Baical Skullcap also helps to supports the body to inhibit the binding between antigens and immunoglobulin E, a type of antibody – this again reduces the body’s reaction to an allergen. Baical Skullcap also supports the inflammatory responses of the body which reduce the body’s inflammatory processors during and allergic response.
An Ayurvedic herb from a tree commonly known as the silk tree due to its silk-like flowers. The stem bark is used medicinally and supports the antiallergenic actions of the body inhibiting mast cell degranulation and reducing the levels of allergy inducing antibodies. Both these actions help reduce the body’s allergic responses to allergens.
Golden Rod Leaf
Used with allergic conditions to help support the anti-inflammatory response but more importantly to help support anti-catarrhal actions of the body to reduce excess mucus production which is prominent with airborne pollen type respiratory allergies.
Supports skin allergies, blood cleansing, nutritive. Traditionally used to help support chronic skin conditions – eczema and in particular weeping/discharging eczema. Nettle is an excellent nourishing herb for any eruptive skin conditions – weepy rashes etc – due to its blood cleansing action where it supports the body’s responses to allergies.
