Drinking gin and tonic can help cure allergies, so I’m never drinking anything else again
Guess I’ll have to order 10
Nasal allergies affect about 50 million people in the United States, but according to Hayley Spencer from Stylist, the cure could be as simple as a gin and tonic.
The findings come from Asthma UK , who say certain alcoholic drinks are worse than others for triggering symptoms.
Certain drinks are high in histamines and sulphites, which bring on allergic reactions. Red wine is the main culprit, followed by white wine, beer and then cider.
To reduce triggering allergies, they recommend switching to clear spirits like gin and tonic, which are low in histamines and sulphites.
So to avoid watery eyes and sneezing next time you’re out, order an ice cold G&T.
