Unlike most allergy medications, NasalCrom® actually prevents nasal allergy symptoms from occurring in the first place. Let’s start with the basics: nasal allergies happen when your body reacts to rid itself of some foreign substance—in this case, airborne allergens such as pollen or pet dander.
When Allergies Attack
Here’s something you likely didn’t know: it’s not allergens themselves that cause your allergy symptoms (at least not directly). When allergens enter your nose, they attack cells called mast cells. If you’re allergic to those substances, your mast cells erupt, releasing histamines and other irritants. It’s those pesky substances that represent your body’s immune response—which you get to experience as a runny nose or sneezing.
Many allergy medicines use an “antihistamine” in an attempt to control the symptoms histamines and other irritants cause. But, by then, the horse of suffering has already left the metaphorical barn. NasalCrom® is different.
All Hail Mast Cell Stabilization
Instead of waiting until after you’re already suffering symptoms, NasalCrom® works to stabilize your nasal mast cells. This allows the mast cells to better maintain their integrity, minimizing the release of histamines and other irritants—preventing your nasal allergy symptoms before they even start.
