PreHistin Review and Giveaway | Ends 12/3 {CLOSED}

I, like so many other people, suffer from indoor and outdoor allergies. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America estimates that 50 million Americans have allergies, 40 million of those people indoor/outdoor allergies. From the AAFA website:

Indoor and Outdoor Allergies – (Allergic rhinitis; seasonal/perennial allergies; hay fever; nasal allergies) Approximately 40 million Americans have indoor/outdoor allergies as their primary allergy. (Many people with allergies usually have more than one type of allergy.) Approximately 10 million people are allergic to cat dander, the most common pet allergy. The most common indoor/outdoor allergy triggers are:  tree, grass and weed pollen; mold spores; dust mite and cockroach allergen; and, cat, dog and rodent dander. 

Fun stuff, huh? Until a few years ago, I had your standard seasonal allergies -- a little sniffling and sneezing in the spring mostly. But all of a sudden, BAM! itchy, red allergy eyes, violently sneezing whenever I went near the garden, and having to dust and vacuum about 5 times as much as normally. I never found out the exact reason this happened, but I do know that I've been actively trying to combat the symptoms ever since. I've had bad reactions to most OTC and presription allergy meds, so my main focus became keeping the house really clean, maintaining proper humidity levels, and avoiding the outdoors on "bad allergy" days.
I was recently given the chance to try PreHistin, the world's first pre-histamine. Histamines are substances that cause sneezing, itching, nasal congestion, and runny nose. You're probably familiar with "antihistmines", which are made to attack the histamines only after they're released. They also come with some unpleasant side affects, most notably drowsiness. PreHistin works by regulating the release of histamines so that your body may not react to them. PreHistin has been clinically shown to maintain healthy lgE levels, which have been linked to allergy symptoms like sneezing, nasal congestin, and runny nose. PreHistin's safe, all natural formula contains cyanocobalamin, which os one of the vitamins in vitamin B12. It supports immune function, and is safe for long term use.

I've been taking PreHistin for a few weeks, and already I've noticed it helping. There' some kind of plant or tree in this area that always makes me sneeze this time of the year, and I noticed the other day that it wasn't occuring. Also, since PreHistin doesn't cause me to become drowsy like antihistamines do, so I have no problems taking it in the morning.

The cherry lozenges have a nice taste, not sickeningly sweet or sour. You simply place one under your tongue, and let it dissolve. It dissolves rather quickly, so no having to spend a ton of time holding it under your tongue. Take it twice a day, in the AM and PM. Use for 30 consecutive days. PreHistin is for adults and children 12 years and up. For more info, go to
