Ginger Shots for Allergy Season

Allergy season is quickly approaching. Hay fever is an allergic reaction to pollen when it gets in contact with your mouth, nose, eyes and throat. The allergy season typically starts in March when pollen begins to be released, and ends once all the pollen from trees and plants has been released in late summer.

Around 20% of the UK's population suffer from hay fever each year, therefore emphasising the value of finding remedies to relieve symptoms or to put yourself in the best stead possible to tackle hay fever season this year.

Research has suggested that Ginger may have a positive effect on reducing hay fever symptoms. B.fresh are here to explain why the Ginger+ shot is going to be your best friend this allergy season!

Why is Ginger+ beneficial in hay fever season?


Ginger possesses anti-inflammatory properties. Lots of the nasty symptoms of hay fever such as a runny and stuffy nose, itchy eyes and nose and watery eyes, are caused by inflammation. Ginger contains Gingerol which has antioxidant properties which work to reduce inflammatory enzymes. Therefore, it is suggested that Ginger can help to reduce these inflammatory driven symptoms naturally.


Curcumin is the active ingredient in Turmeric. It has been proven to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Similarly to Ginger, it can help to alleviate a number of symptoms associated with hay fever. Additionally, Curcumin has been found to reduce nasal congestion and symptoms, by lessening nasal-airflow resistance. It is difficult to consume quantities of curcumin, solely just through your diet, that are going to be beneficial when it comes to hay fever. Therefore, drinking a Ginger+ shot daily, can assist you towards meeting your curcumin goal.

Black pepper

Turmeric paired with Black Pepper is a powerful combination. Piperine is the bioactive compound found in Black Pepper which has been found to possess anti-inflammatory properties, and most importantly, it boosts the absorption of curcumin. To support this statement, research has found that fusing Piperine in Black Pepper and the Curcumin in Turmeric, amplifies the absorption of Curcumin by up to 2000%

Vitamin C

Following on, Vitamin C holds anti-inflammatory and antihistamine properties which suggests that the consumption of it could help to calm reactions and improve your protection against inflammatory symptoms. This is effective because Vitamin C works as a natural antihistamine and lowers the amount of histamine your body produces in response to allergens, with this case being pollen. In turn, when histamine levels are reduced, hay fever sufferers should experience the easing of some symptoms like sneezing and watery eyes. Our Ginger+ shot is a source of Vitamin C thanks to carrot, apple and orange content making up 60% of one shot.


The addition of zinc into this shot is beneficial in putting hay fever suffers in the best stead possible to tackle this allergy season. Zinc has been shown to be useful in reducing inflammation and boosting & supporting the immune system. This information, alongside the benefits of the other ingredients discussed inside a Ginger+ shot, form a strong argument as to why consuming these shots daily will help this allergy season feel a little bit easier!


Now that you have discovered the benefits of each ingredient inside a Ginger+ shot, it is evident that all of the ingredients combined, form a powerful tool to alleviate hay fever symptoms. Additionally, the immune system will be supported so that hay fever sufferers may not experience as bad allergies this season. Start drinking Ginger+ shots now to put you in the best position possible to tackle those nasty allergies!
