Lilfe Lessons: 6 foods to fight spring allergies

Sneezing, coughing, and watery eyes are just a few symptoms that tell you it must be allergy season.

However, don't reach for those expensive drugs yet: try these remedy foods first.

Grab some broccoli or citrus fruits.

Broccoli has been shown to clear up sinuses and packs about 80 milligrams of vitamin C in one cup.

Citrus fruits like oranges, grapefruits, and lemons, have about 60 milligrams that ease allergy symptoms.

Next, try elderberries or stinging nettle to help strengthen your immune system and reduce inflammation.

Stinging nettle helps your body build a tolerance to histamine, the chemical your body produces during an allergic reaction.

Finally, load up on garlic and onions.

These simple foods are packed with quercetin, an antihistamine that fights allergies.

Try adding some of these to your favorite dishes regularly or combine them with chicken broth to make an anti-allergy soup to naturally battle allergies.
