Sweet potato, leafy vegetables, nuts, and avocado – these foods are rich in vitamin B and vitamin E.

Fatty fish – such as salmon, sardines, tuna, and mackerel are rich in omega 3 fatty acids, which helps reduce inflammation, the direct cause of allergy symptoms.

Garlic – garlic is high in antioxidants for the immune system. Use garlic as a food spice. You can also cut a whole garlic into small pieces and chew or swallow it like a pill every day.
