Why Do People Experience Pollen Sensitivities?

pollen sensitivitiesIf you are susceptible to pollen sensitivities, you know it’s time to get serious about protecting your sinuses when you look outside and see a hue of yellow. Pollen, while vital to our ecosystem, can be a menace to our bodies. However, the right H1 histamine blocker can help maintain order in your sinuses even at the height of pollen season. 


Clear Gum, a natural histamine blocker from Vibrant Nutraceuticals, was designed to naturally support healthy histamine levels no matter the pollen count. 


What is Pollen?

According to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), Pollen is “a fine to coarse powdery substance…created by certain plants as part of their reproduction process. It can appear from trees in the spring, grasses in the summer, and weeds in the fall. Pollen in the air can trigger sneezing, congestion, watery eyes, and other cold-like symptoms.” 


While we see pollen as a nuisance in our daily life (especially when it covers every available surface), it’s actually one of the most important building blocks for both our environment and economy. We all depend on the successful growth of produce to survive, and it’s easy to forget that there are entire industries that rely on flowers and other greenery to thrive. Pollination is essential for the most in-demand crops and flowering plants that keep our economy moving.


Why Do People Have Pollen Sensitivities?

If pollen is a consistent part of nature that we experience every year, why does it affect us so strongly? Healthline explains that people who struggle with pollen sensitivities do so because “the immune system mistakenly identifies the harmless pollen as a dangerous intruder. It begins to produce chemicals to fight against the pollen.” Essentially, our bodies view pollen as invasive even though it is, in the general sense, harmless.


Some people are sensitive to all pollen and others to specific types of pollen. The best way to support your sinuses during pollen season is to keep an eye on the pollen count and avoid being outside during those peak hours as much as possible, and maybe even wear a dust mask if you have to be outside during those times. You can also support healthy histamine levels with an H1 histamine blocker, like our Clear Gum supplement.
