I think we can safely say that spring is here, which is great unless you are one of millions of people who suffer from seasonal allergies.  Antihistamines can be helpful, but like any medication they come with side effects.  One side effect that seems counter-intuitive is an increase in the frequency of sinus infections.  One would think that a medication that helps prevent allergies would also help to prevent sinus infections.

To understand how antihistamines lead to more sinus infections we need to first understand what prevents sinus infections, which is moisture.  Our body has a great system for removing bacteria and viruses from our sinuses but it need to be moist in these areas to accomplish this task.  The body uses little hairs called villi to move foreign particle through the sinus passages, when there is no moisture the villi grind to a half and these foreign bodies get to hang out in our sinuses and set up shop which leads to a sinus infection.

Natural D-Hist from Orthomolecular is a natural antihistamine that has been shown to decrease symptoms associated with seasonal allergies without drying the sinuses. Natural D-Hist includes quercetin, a powerful flavonoid to support healthy histamine levels.   Natural D-Hist uses a powerful combination of natural compounds to promote healthy nasal and sinus passages for individuals with elevated histamine and respiratory irritation.
