How do Probiotics rich foods help with Sneezing or Skin Allergy?

Up to 40% of the worlds population (an upward trend!) suffers from some form of allergy. Nut allergy, sneezing, itchy eyes, runny nose, eczema and many others. Allergies occur when the immune system overreacts to substances that are usually harmless, such as foods, pollen etc. At least 10% of children around the world have eczema. Probiotics rich foods help to resume the disrupted immune system and fix allergies.

The chances to develop allergies are largely genetically determined. Study shows that 12% of children with no family history of allergy, 30% to 50% of children with a single parental allergy and 60% to 80% of children with biparental allergies will develop allergic disease.

Food allergies

While peanut allergies are what parents hear about the most — which makes sense given that the number of kids with peanut allergies has tripled in the past 15 years — there are other foods that are most likely to trigger an allergic reaction in children- cow’s milk, wheat, soy, egg, fish. Food allergy is different from food intolerance. A child might feel bloated or gassy after having a milk product, but that could be a sign of an intolerance to lactose. However, in case of allergy, the reaction will be much stronger like extreme gut pain or vomiting or even more serious. The good news is that most children will outgrow their food allergy. Approximately 85 percent of allergies to cow’s milk, soy, egg and wheat will resolve by the time the child is 8 years old.

allergy and immune system

An allergic reaction is an immune system response to a particular food protein. 70-80% of immune cells are located in the gut (large intestine). This is also home to 100 trillion bacterias (gut microorganisms). There is enough research linking bacterias to immunity. The shift in lifestyle, rising pollution, use of antibiotics, and processed food consumption has all together impacted the quality of bacterias in our gut. This has contributed to compromised immunity in kids and adults.

Studies state that a lack of diversity in the gut bacterias can also be associated to allergies- seasonal or nut allergies. Children who are exposed to antibiotic or medication soon after birth, increase the chances of developing allergies early on. (Read about peanut allergy)

The good news is that our immune system can be modified from as early as pregnancy to infancy and further as we age. A well developed immune system ensures the maintenance of health for infants and children, throughout life. (What other foods help with immunity?)

probiotics

This is one way to resume the disrupted immune system. Probiotics rich foods are live bacteria found in certain additional food like fermented rice or bean, wine, buttermilk, kefir, kombucha, yogurt, miso, kimchi, aged cheese, pickled vegetables. We provide these bacteria home, and in return they extract vitamins and minerals from food for our body’s healthy functioning.

All the spices are great immunity boosters and contains essential oils, antioxidants and rich aromas. Like other spices, benefit of cinnamon are many. (Which foods are good for boosting immunity?)

Cinnamon or cinnamon powder is a spice that is made from the bark of trees scientifically known as Cinnamomum. This spice is extracted from the inner bark of the tree. The oily stalk is loaded with a compound called cinnamaldehyde. Hindi meaning of cinnamon is Dalchini and it is very common in Indian kitchen.

What are benefit of cinnamon?

  1. Antioxidants protect your body from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. One benefit of cinnamon is that it has powerful antioxidant called polyphenols which helps your body-cells stay young and healthy.
  2. Helps to curb insulin resistance: Another benefit of cinnamon is that it helps to manage insulin levels. Insulin is the most important hormone for body’s metabolism and energy levels. It is essentially a nutrient carrier of our blood-stream. Due to modern unhealthy eating patterns, many people fall prey to insulin resistance, which means, the insulin in your body is unable to carry the daily required nutrients to different parts of your body, causing you to feel lethargic and unenergetic. But the better news is, consuming cinnamon helps insulin do its job correctly. It reduces blood-sugar levels and helps your entire body experience the optimal states of energy.(Foods to fix hormonal imbalance in kids?)
  3. Last and an important benefit of cinnamon is that it has anti-inflammatory properties which can soothe the gut and all the integral organs and fight against foreign infections and bacteria. (How to improve gut health?)

how shouldyou consume Cinnamon powder on a daily basis?

Consuming cinnamon with water is very effective for weight loss. But cinnamon is non-soluble in water, so if you add a pinch of cinnamon to a glass of water, it is most likely going to deposit on the sides of the glass. The ideal way to consume cinnamon with water is by making a cinnamon concoction. This can be easily done by boiling cinnamon with water.

Tip: If you are a busy mother, who can barely find time to touch her nose, you can make cinnamon lollies once a week. All you have to do is freeze the cinnamon concoction just like the ice-cubes in our refrigerators and add 2-3 cinnamon lollies to a glass of water everyday. It’s best to consume cinnamon 25-20 minutes before meals.
