Allergies can make your life unbearable, especially if they are caused by something you enjoy, such as a drink. Drinking alcohol can trigger allergies, and symptoms can range from headaches to skin rash, respiratory issues, and even anaphylaxis. While antihistamines may work to relieve allergy symptoms, they don’t address the underlying cause. That’s where probiotics come in. Recent research suggests that probiotics may help alleviate allergy symptoms caused by drinking alcohol. In this article, we will explore how probiotics can help with alcohol-induced allergies and why you should consider them as part of your allergy management plan.
There is limited scientific evidence to suggest that probiotics can help with allergy symptoms caused by drinking. A small study published in the journal Allergy, Asthma & Clinical Immunology in 2016 found that taking a probiotic supplement daily for three months reduced the severity of allergic symptoms in people with alcoholinduced allergies. Another study published in the journal Clinical and Experimental Allergy in 2017 found that taking a probiotic supplement daily for six weeks reduced the severity of allergic reactions to alcohol. However, more research is needed to determine whether probiotics are an effective treatment for alcoholinduced allergies.
