Definition: Pollen

Pollen

Pollen is a fine powder produced by certain plants when they reproduce. During the spring, summer, and fall seasons, it's released into the air and picked up by the wind, which brings it to other plants to fertilize them. Inside of these pollen grains are proteins that commonly cause allergic reactions (such as sneezing, runny nose, and itchy eyes) when breathed in. The pollen that's most often responsible for causing allergies comes from grasses, trees, and weeds. Many people with asthma are allergic to pollen. When they breathe it in, it can trigger their asthma symptoms.
