Egg-straordinary allergen support

Thursday, January 18, 2018

With the warmer months comes an increase in pollens which can be a cause of irritation, frustration and inconvenience. The side effects of many over-the-counter medications to ease the symptoms of allergens are sometimes as much of a hassle as the symptoms themselves, but what are the alternatives?

Generally, when you think about natural support for summer allergens, vitamin C or probiotics often come to mind, but probably not quail eggs! Studies have shown that quail eggs can indeed support your response to allergens, be they seasonal or perennial like dust, mould, cockroaches, feathers, and pet dander.

How were the benefits of quail eggs discovered?

Interest in quail eggs first developed in the 1970s when a French doctor noticed that the quail farmers in the area suffered significantly less reactions to allergens than other local residents. Experiments concluded that patients with allergen issues who consumed quail eggs experienced a reduction in allergen symptoms over time. These observations were followed up by the renowned Dr. Bruttmann, who conducted several studies to show that quail eggs help to support the body against nasal, throat and eye irritation in response to allergen exposure.

How do quail eggs work their magic?

To understand how quail eggs help, you need a basic understanding of how reactions to allergens occur within your body. It all starts when your nose inhales the reactive substance known as an “allergens.” Allergens release an enzyme that affects the cells in your nasal cavity, leading to a series of reactions in your body which are driven by your immune system that perceives the allergen as a foreign invader. The result is your body releasing inflammatory chemicals, which ultimately lead to the irritation you experience in your nose and eyes. 

The magic in quail eggs comes from a special kind of protein contained within the egg. These proteins support your body by helping to block the enzymes from the inhaled allergens, which then helps avoid all the subsequent reactions. it’s simple, but egg-fective!
