What causes allergy symptoms?
An allerg is your body’s reaction to a particular substanc. Allergies are common and are thought to affect around 1 in 4 people at some point in their lives. Most allergic reactions are mild and can be kept under control. Common allergies include:
Grass and tree pollen (also known as hay fever)
Animal dander (tiny flakes of animal skin or hair)
Insect bites and stings
Mild allergies can cause a variety of symptoms including:
A runny or blocked nose
Red, itchy, watery eyes
Wheezing and coughing
Red, itchy rashes
Worsening of asthma or eczema symptoms
How can Becodefence Plus help to relieve allergy symptoms?
Becodefence Plus contains a unique Thixotropic formula which becomes fluid when shaken for easy and effective application. After the spray has been applied it settles onto the nasal lining as a gel which blocks allergens from making contact. Becodefence Plus Spray has an effective double action that firstly:
Defuses pollen rapidly
Supporting fast clearance of allergens
Forming a microgel barrier to prevent against further irritation
The second action of this product is to reduce sensitivity to allergy triggers. This is achieved with its therapeutic oil that has anti-allergic properties and acts as a mast-cell stabiliser, which is a medicine that can help to prevent or control allergies.
