Summer is dead good and all but if you suffer with the dreaded itchy eyes and streaming nose then it can be a pretty rough time for ya.
Fear no more though as according to Elle, beer and wine contain histamine, which is the opposite of your hay fever tablets.
Beer contains the substance that’s released in your body when you have an allergic reaction and as an awful result, it can worsen your hay fever – booooo!
Asthma UK says: “As well as ethanol (pure alcohol), alcoholic drinks contain a natural food chemical called histamine, which is found at particularly high levels in red wine and some beers. 64 per cent of people with asthma say certain types of alcohol triggers their symptoms. Red wine is the main culprit, followed by white wine, beer and then cider.”
So in our heads, you are better off with double gins all day rather than anything else, which in our books isn’t so bad at all.
