: : Hey, I have to share this with you guys. I have always had seasonal allergies. First I took antihistamines, then I found myself on Claritin last year. Well, it made me feel funny in the head and I didn't like that. I was also breast feeding and didn't want the chance of side effects to the baby, so I quit taking it. For the past 7 months I decided to take Grape seed extract (make sure it contains at least 90% polyphenols)for it's free radical destroying properties and found myself waltzing through this past spring and fall completely sneeze free. I did a little more research into grape seed and found out that it is known for relieving allergies. Has anyone else tried grape seed extract for allergies?
: My wife and I use a product called Proflavanol which contains grape seed antioxidant and we don't have any hayfever attacks at all anymore.
James, I'm glad to hear that....finally an alternative to over the counter antihistamines that really work!
