Summer Skin Rash? Try THIS Seasonal Cure
It’s summer and that means you’re probably spending more time outdoors.
And that’s always a good thing… more sunlight equals better health.
But sometimes outdoor irritants – like molds and pollens – can lead to an itchy rash.
The most common way to treat a skin rash is with a topical treatment.
But that’s not always the BEST way.
Believe it or not, you can reduce the uncomfortable redness and inflammation — from the inside out.
Because researchers have found that a late summer treat does wonders for your skin.
When a rash forms on your skin, you might reach for a topical treatment like cortisone or Desitin.
Sure, they might provide temporary relief from itching, but they don’t get to the root of the problem.
You see, when you come into contact with an allergen, the problem isn’t the allergen itself… it’s how your body responds to it.
And when you have contact hypersensitivity, your immune system kicks into overdrive, sending cells to the area that are responsible for causing the inflammation and itchiness.
The best way to address the problem, then, is to harness your body’s immune response… and researchers have identified a mighty sweet way to do just that:
That’s right… popping a few handfuls of this late-summer treat could reduce the itchiness and swelling associated with skin allergies.
For this mouse study, researchers gave one group of mice the equivalent of a single serving per day of black raspberries in with their regular diet, while a second group did not receive the black raspberries.
Then a few weeks later, they exposed both groups of mice to an irritant that induced contact hypersensitivity.
The mice eating the black raspberries had considerably less swelling of the skin compared to those not eating the raspberries.
That because compounds in the raspberries appeared to modulate dendrite cells, which are cells that tell your immune system whether or not to create inflammation.
In other words, something as simple as eating black raspberries can control your body’s inflammatory response.
And if it can work with something like contact dermatitis, it’s likely to help tame other inflammatory responses as well.
In fact, other studies have shown that eating black raspberries can reduce inflammation associated with cancer!
The point here is a simple one: Let food be your medicine.
And in a case like black raspberries, it can be your dessert, too.
