What Is AllerCan?
AllerCan is an advanced nutritional supplement containing evidence-based ingredients shown to support immune function and a healthy respiratory system.
How Seasonal Allergy Works
AllerCan ingredients are demonstrated in clinical research to support a healthy respiratory system, immune function, and symptoms of seasonal discomfort through a myriad of mechanisms.* Below you will find summaries of the compelling evidence for the benefits of AllerCan ingredients:
DGL (Deglycyrrhizinated) Licorice Root: The root of the licorice plant has been shown to have expectorant (mucus-loosening) properties in humans, thus providing healthy respiratory support. It also acts as a demulcent by soothing irritation in mucous membranes.
Deglycyrrhizinated (DGL) version of licorice removes the substantial parts of glycyrrhizin, which can cause issues with hypertension, edema. Therefore, deglycyrrhizinated licorice found in Aller Pro is a safer option for long-term use in susceptible individuals.
Quercetin: Quercetin is an important flavonoid (specifically a flavonol) found in various plants. Like all flavonoids, quercetin works as an antioxidant by scavenging free radicals and supporting oxidative stress. It also has been shown in research to support healthy nasal and sinus function.
Stinging Nettle Leaf: Stinging nettle is a plant so-named due to the stinging sensation it produces when
you touch its leaves. Ironically, research suggests the leaves of stinging nettle have a variety of healthful
properties for humans. For example, evidence suggests that supplementing with stinging nettle leaf helps support healthy nasal function by modulating certain immune markers.
Bromelain: Bromelain is a crude extract from pineapple fruit that contains several proteases—enzymes that
help us digest and absorb protein complexes, including antigenic compounds that enhance the absorption of quercetin.
But the benefits of bromelain are quite extensive beyond just supporting protein digestion, with clinical evidence suggesting it also supports healthy immune function.*
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC): NAC is an amino acid precursor to one of the most crucial antioxidants in the human body—glutathione. Glutathione is involved in a multitude of metabolic reactions affecting every system in the body, especially the nervous system, immune system, and gastrointestinal system.
Glutathione and NAC help reduce the viscosity (thickness) of mucus, thus supporting a healthy airway and promoting a healthy upper respiratory tract.*
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant micronutrient with immune-supporting properties that works synergistically with quercetin to encourage healthy nasal and sinus function.*
