Have an Allergy – Amber may be able to help.

Amber is a fossilised tree resin that is millions of years old. It is often used in jewellery and is believed to have healing properties ². Amber extract has been studied for its anti-allergic effects. According to a study published in Nutraceuticals, amber extract suppressed mast cell-mediated allergic inflammation via the regulation of allergic mediators ¹.

Amber Allergy Studies

The study explored the anti-allergic effects of amber extract in RBL-2H3 mast cells stimulated with different allergens. The results demonstrated that amber extract at concentrations up to 50 μg/mL had no cytotoxic effect on RAW 264.7 and RBL-2H3 cells.

Amber extract inhibited NO production in RAW 264.7 cells. Treatment with amber extract significantly suppressed the release of β-hexosaminidase, especially at 50 μg/mL. Furthermore, amber extract suppressed the significantly increased ROS levels induced by allergen stimulation and allergy-associated cytokines. The results also suggested that amber extract exerts anti-allergic inflammatory effects by inhibiting the MAPK and NF-κB signaling pathways, resulting in decreased cytokines production. Thus, the amber extract is a promising anti-allergic agent ¹.

Allergic diseases are inflammatory diseases that have become a global clinical health concern. About 10–20% of the world’s population is affected by allergies. In recent decades, the rapid rise in the number of allergic patients has triggered extensive research, which has mainly focused on understanding the mechanisms of allergic immune responses and establishing new therapeutics for allergy-related diseases ¹.

Conclusion

In conclusion, amber extract has been shown to have anti-allergic effects. It is a promising anti-allergic agent that can be used to treat allergy-related diseases. However, more research is needed to fully understand the mechanisms of action of amber extract and its potential side effects. If you are interested in purchasing raw amber, you can find it online at websites such as Baltic Amber Masters.

Amber powder is also a great way to use the allergy busting affects of amber.  We have a blog here and sell a very good (probably the best) amber powder you can source.

We have numerous pieces of raw amber available in bracelets in cognac, honey and lemon and necklaces in various lengths in cognac, honey and lemon, to name a few.

I hope this information helps!.
