Hayfever? There's help at hand

Vital Health Foods have released Vital Allergy Ease, a high-potency, anti-allergy herbal, multivitamin and -mineral supplement to treat hayfever and sinusitis symptoms.

Vital Allergy Ease, a high-potency, anti-allergy herbal, multivitamin and -mineral supplement is a condition-specific supplement developed by trusted and leading vitamin and nutritional supplement manufacturer, Vital Health Foods. It’s scientifically developed to support relief from hay fever and sinusitis symptoms, as well as allergic reactions caused by dust, pollen, feathers and other environmental factors.

“When excessive mucus gets channelled out through tiny channels from our sinuses, the channels sometimes get blocked,” says Andrea du Plessis, a dietician and product specialist at Vital Health Foods. “This may lead to mucus build-up, which in turn results in pressure, inflammation and serious discomfort.”
