In today’s climatic change, allergies are becoming a global problem causing most day offs.
India, blessed with diverse food culture, has also acquired its own list of allergens. According to Professor Mahesh PA, Director at Allergy Asthma Associates, Mysore, the list counts for nuts, wheat and dairy products, vegies like brinjal (aubergine), cucumber, lady’s finger (bhindi) and papaya.
What is an Allergy?
Allergy is an inappropriatereaction of body’s immune system to allergens such as pollens, foods, house dust mite.
What To Expect:
Young children and individuals with family history of asthma or allergies are more prone to suffer;though a lot of times children outgrow allergies with growing age.In an allergic outbreak, one can expect:
- Runny and itchy nose
- Sneezing, watery itchy red eyes.
- Redness of skin and rashes
- Nagging cough, wheezing, and shortage of breath.
- Nausea, vomiting, abdominal discomfort and diarrhea.
Turmeric for Allergies
Turmeric,derived from a plant Curcuma longa, can be the ultimate concoction for allergic woes.
Curcumin, main active component of turmeric, is responsible for its therapeutic effects including anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-oxidant and immunomodulation properties.
However, common turmeric fails to exert 100% of its therapeutic effects due to:
- Poor bioavailability
- Less permeability and extensive systemic metabolism
- Combination of additional compounds to improve absorption
- Contains only 3-5% of curcumin
Novel Solution – SNEC30!
To counter fight the disadvantages of common turmeric, a novel formulation, SNEC30 (Self-nano emulsifying curcumin 30 mg) has been developed. SNEC30 is the latest generation of scientifically formulated bioactive co-developed by Arbro Pharmaceuticals Ltd, DSIR (Department for Scientific & Industrial Research, GOI) and Jamia Hamdard University.
SNEC30 for better Absorption, Highest Bioavailability and Fast Action
SNEC30 uses Curcumin in Self Nano-Emulsifying Drug Delivery System(SNEDDS) and is patented through the prestigious United States Patent for drug delivery system. SNEC30 achieves Cmax (peak serum concentration of any drug) of active curcuminoids several times more than its’ closest rival – means highest bioavailability. It escapes rapid systemic metabolism by forming a stable nano emulsion in stomach and bypassing Liver First Pass. SNEC30 acts fast following oral take even at a very low dose.
SNEC30 Acts As Anti-Histamine Decongestant
Nano-emulsion Curcumin in SNEC30 acts as decongestant and anti-histamine working on reducing mast cell degranulation that causes release of histamine and thus treats chronic as well as acute allergies effectively.
SNEC30 Inhibits Leukotriene Activity
SNEC30 acts as a natural leukotriene inhibitor for respiratory allergic conditions such as bronchial asthma and other lung problems.
SNEC30 Brings Down Inflammation
SNEC30 reduces inflammation by inhibiting the activity of Notch-GATA signaling pathway while it suppresses the activity of nuclear factor kappa B. SNEC30 alleviates airway inflammation by creating a balance ofT helper immune cells. It also controls other biochemical agents to control inflammation and narrowing of airways.
SNEC30 Acts As Anti-Allergic
SNEC30 helps with decrease in mucus production and its anti-allergic properties reduce incidences of allergy induced asthma.
SNEC30 Modulates Immunity
SNEC30 possess immune modulation properties. It can alter immune response to avoid hypersensitivity reaction – the reason behind allergic reactions.
Dosage and Safety–
Optimum dose is 1 capsule twice daily or as directed by the physician. Trials report very few, if any, adverse effects of SNEC30 even at a high dose.
