10 mg freeze dried extract of Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus) pollen. Eucalyptus, scientifically known as Eucalyptus regnans, is an impressive tree species that is native to the southeastern part of Australia. Its smooth bark and fragrant leaves make it a recognizable and popular choice for landscaping and timber production worldwide. The tree can grow to towering heights of up to 45 meters and has an average lifespan of around 300 years, making it a remarkable and long-lasting addition to any environment. Apart from its practical and aesthetic values, eucalyptus has been used in traditional medicine for centuries. Its essential oil, extracted from the leaves, is well-known for its therapeutic properties and is widely used in aromatherapy, massage, and other therapeutic practices. Its cooling and invigorating aroma makes it a popular ingredient in many personal care products as well. Despite its many benefits, eucalyptus can also pose some risks for individuals with respiratory issues or allergies. The tree produces pollen that can trigger allergic reactions in some people, leading to symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, and itchy eyes. Additionally, eucalyptus trees are known for their flammability, which can make them a hazard in areas prone to fires. Despite its potential drawbacks, the eucalyptus tree remains a valuable and versatile species, appreciated for its practical uses, therapeutic benefits, and distinctive appearance.
Raw material was cultivated in Middle Europe by collecting branches of trees and put in a greenhouse until the inflorescences matured. After maturing the inflorescences were collected, sieved and extracted with acetone. The pollen have been extracted followed by filtration. They have been freeze dried after dialysis.
Pollen is one of the most common triggers of seasonal allergies worldwide. Depending on the season, weeds, grasses and trees release pollen to fertilize their own species. The wind travels the tiny and light pollen but unfortunately they end up in our noses, eyes and lungs as well.With their powdery, granular appearance they look quite delicate and innocent. In some people they will however trigger an allergic reaction. We mostly relate to this as hay fever. Most common symptoms are a runny nose, sneezing, itchy eyes but sometimes also symptoms of the lower airways (asthma). In allergy-prone individuals, their immune system reacts to allergenic proteins by generation of IgE antibodies, a process called sensitization. These antibodies will bind to receptors on mast cells and basophils, the effector cells of allergic diseases. If a pollen-sensitized person then gets exposed in pollen season, these effector cells release various mediators such as histamine. These mediators together are at the basis of starting off the allergic symptoms.
