The congestion, bronchial irritation, sneezing, and itchy, watery eyes associated with allergies can be quite difficult to endure. Our Allergy Relief Basket is full of delicious goodies specifically chosen to provide symptomatic relief.Magnesium
has been shown to relieve constricted airways in the lungs and reduce bronchial discomfort associated with allergies. In light of this evidence, we've included magnesium rich sources such as almonds and chocolate (yes, chocolate!)

, an allergy-fighting compound. Quercetin reduces inflammation, prevents the release of histamine, and blocks allergic reactions to pollens. Foods such as red onions, kale, and spinach are good sources of quercetin.Cherries
