Find Relief During Pollen Season with Chinese Herbs

Spring means flower buds, grasses, blooming trees and pollen— and if you're one of the millions of people who have seasonal allergies, it also means sneezing, congestion, a runny nose and other bothersome symptoms. Seasonal allergies — also called hay fever and allergic rhinitis — can make you miserable as these allergens send the body’s immune system into overdrive.  

DAO Labs Immunity Support is centuries in the making, and through the power of Chinese medicine can strengthen your immune system against airborne, seasonal and environmental invasions. One of the most popular formulas across Asia, it’s the go-to for cold and allergy seasons, or to boost the immune system.

Pouring DAO Immunity Support

Our centuries old formula includes Astragalus, Atractylodes and Siler Root which help to replenish and strengthen Qi, promote immune activity in the body and activate exterior defenses.

East meets west as I carefully selected Western flavors to align with the efficacy of the Eastern herbs.  Traditionally, Chinese herbs are incredible effective but also really difficult to consume.  I hope to have solved this problem by flavoring the formula with Pear, Ginger, Rosemary and Honey. These flavors were selected not just because they pair nicely with the flavors of the herbs but because from a Western perspective they also help with the bothersome allergies.

  • Pears originated in China and apart from being a flavorful addition they are rich in antioxidants and vitamin C which provides benefits to the immune system.
  • Ginger has been found to help balance the immune system to restore it to proper functioning and enhance the protective functions of the immune system.  
  • Honey acts as a medium for transmitting the benefits of ginger to the body and may also boost the body’s immune system by aiding in the production of white blood cells.
  • Rosemary’s active components are antioxidant compounds that help make a secondary line of defense behind the body’s own immune system.  

Chinese medicine is powerful, but it’s also complex and in most cases, not very tasty. We’re making this ancient practice approachable, convenient and flavorful, without sacrificing the benefits. We’re also setting the industry bar on product testing and sustainability.
