With FREE lifetime updates and authored by over a dozen researchers, it is the clearest guide to supplementation there is.
Sinusitis/Rhinitus (Stuffed Nose) Overview:
A list of supplements that could possible be helpful for people transiently suffering from sinus infections, or for people who are susceptible to sinus congestion. A lot of allergic reactions are mediated via the immune system, so the following compounds are largely associated with having anti-inflammatory properties (just either being potent, or happening upon the nasal mucosa after oral ingestion so they can work there to a higher degree)
300mg of a water extract (5% bitter principles or above) taken thrice daily appears to outright abolish many symptoms of allergic rhinitus in the majority of subjects. Promising albeit limited research, and may only apply to allergic rhinitus (nasal congestion from other causes has not yet been investigated with this herb)
In a dose dependent manner, Rosmarinic acid reduced the self-reported side effects of seasonal allergies to hay.
Rosmarinic acid can also be found in Rosemary (as well as many spices) and Perilla Oil.
Although usually more spirulina is used, 2g appears to be the lowest effective dose and the one used in the clinical study. Similar to tinospora cordifolia, supplementation in a model of allergic rhinitus was highly effective in abolishing symptoms.
