10 mg vial of freeze-dried Acacia extract.
Freeze dried extract of Acacia (Acacia spp.) pollen. Acacia trees and shrubs, which are members of the Fabaceae family, have a widespread distribution around the world, with over 1,000 species found in various regions including Australia, Africa, and the Americas. These trees are notable for their fragrant flowers and unique foliage, with some species having commercial and medicinal uses. One of the most interesting features of acacia trees is their highly allergenic pollen, which can cause various symptoms in sensitive individuals. This pollen is typically released during the spring and summer months, with the highest pollen counts occurring in late spring. When inhaled, acacia pollen grains can trigger allergic reactions like sneezing, a runny nose, itchy eyes, and even asthma attacks. Despite its allergenic properties, acacia pollen is a valuable ingredient used in various industries, such as food, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals. The pollen contains high levels of protein and carbohydrates, which make it a valuable natural sweetener and ingredient in food products like honey. Additionally, researchers are studying the potential health benefits of acacia pollen, including its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. In conclusion, while acacia pollen can cause significant allergic reactions in some individuals, it is also a valuable resource for various industries and may have potential health benefits. With its widespread distribution and diverse uses, acacia trees continue to be a fascinating subject of study for researchers and nature enthusiasts alike.
Raw material was cultivated in Middle Europe by collecting branches of trees and put in a greenhouse until the inflorescences matured. After maturing the inflorescences were collected, sieved and extracted with acetone. The pollen have been extracted followed by filtration. They have been freeze dried after dialysis. Each product will be delivered with a certificate of analysis. If you want to receive a certificate of analysis before ordering please let us know.
Pollen is one of the most common triggers of seasonal allergies worldwide. Depending on the season, weeds, grasses and trees release pollen to fertilize their own species. The wind travels the tiny and light pollen but unfortunately they end up in our noses, eyes and lungs as well.With their powdery, granular appearance they look quite delicate and innocent. In some people they will however trigger an allergic reaction. We mostly relate to this as hay fever. Most common symptoms are a runny nose, sneezing, itchy eyes but sometimes also symptoms of the lower airways (asthma). In allergy-prone individuals, their immune system reacts to allergenic proteins by generation of IgE antibodies, a process called sensitization. These antibodies will bind to receptors on mast cells and basophils, the effector cells of allergic diseases. If a pollen-sensitized person then gets exposed in pollen season, these effector cells release various mediators such as histamine. These mediators together are at the basis of starting off the allergic symptoms.
