At AC-World, we’re proud of the fact that ductless air conditioning systems can help reduce allergens in the air but we know that those with severe allergies need to do even more. While the following foods haven’t been approved to treat allergies, many people swear by them. As far as health goes, they’re certainly worth a try! Of course, we first recommend that you first consider replacing your central air with the cleaner ductless AC system.

1. Pumpkin

It wouldn’t be fair to forget pumpkins as you look for foods to reduce your allergies. They have tons of Vitamin A, which has been shown to reduce allergy symptoms. Just try to avoid eating them only in dessert foods and instead add them to salads, soups, and more.

2. Kale

Kale may be trendy but it’s trendy for a reason – it’s loaded with a specific type of Vitamin A (carotenoid). Several studies have shown that allergy sufferers who are low on carotenoid are much more likely to experience allergies and asthma. Kale is easy to get in a variety of forms these days – including chips – and can also be added to breads, salads, and more.

3. Broccoli

Broccoli is rich in both Vitamin A and Vitamin C, and studies have shown that getting at least 500 milligrams of Vitamin C each day can reduce allergy symptoms.

4. Celery

Many people believe that because celery is largely made up of water that it doesn’t have many nutrients. The truth is that having a cup of celery every day has been shown to lower blood pressure and reduce pain. It can also reduce inflammation, which is essential to allergy sufferers.

5. Carrots

Carrots are rich in beta-carotene and when you eat beta-carotene, it’s turned into Vitamin A within your body. Any vegetable that’s got a bright orange color gets it from beta-carotene but carrots are especially rich in it. In additional to helping boost your immune system, which is great for allergy sufferers, carrots can also have a positive impact on both skin and vision.

Of course, the answer to your allergy issues is a combination of things. Part of a comprehensive plan involves reducing airborne allergens and the products from AC-World can help do that.
