Quercetin with Bromelain Overview

Quercetin and bromelain may seem like an odd combination, a plant flavonoid and a digestive enzyme from pineapple. And because they're unfamiliar to most, this combination is overlooked by many of the very people who could most benefit from it. But NOW Quercetin with Bromelain can be a very effective product for those with problems related to allergies, sinuses, chronic congestion and rhinitis. It's not a drug, but people sometimes refer to quercetin/bromelain combinations as a "natural antihistamine" which is probably the most useful way to think about its main benefit. Quercetin and bromelain can indeed affect the manufacture and release of histamines (chemicals that promote inflammation of mucous membranes in the nose, sinuses and chest) so it's often used by those with chronic allergies, sinusitis, rhinitis or the common cold. The combination works fantastic for some people, moderately well for others and not at all for some people. You need to consistently use Quercetin with Bromelain for a few weeks to assess the benefit. It may be worth trying, though, since it's very inexpensive and has no drowsy side-effects.

Quercetin with Bromelain Description from NOW
Our Quercetin is from a non-citrus source. This makes it quite suitable for persons with allergies, especially to citrus fruits. Bromelain, a pineapple-derived enzyme, is added to enhance the absorption of Quercetin.

I have Sever Asthma and horrid allergies. 2 years ago my Pulmonologist recommended Quercetin. I can not believe the difference in my sinus problems , asthma , and allergies. I'm miserable when I when I run out of this stuff. I've gone from constant sinus problems/infections to maybe 1 a year and that's when I forget to order it . My Asthma has improved and I don't itch all the time. Now Foods is a good brand, I have used them for my Essential oils and other things for a long time. I started out taking 6 a day now I just take 2 unless I get sick.

Quecetin Suppresses Thyroid Function

I gave the 2-star rating because of the lack of transparency regarding what quercetin is known to do. Quercetin has many beneficial properties, including those outlined in the reviews above. I a little-known effect though, is that it is also a thyroid suppressor. I am a competitive, natural bodybuilder who used quercetin for about a year. I began to gain some bodyfat, but thought this was only an artifact of a very busy school year where training frequency wasn't optimal, even though diet was spot-on. I began to suspect the quercetin was a culprit when I could not drop stubborn bodyfat in ways that worked many times before. As I dug into the pubmed literature, I found scores of papers that not only showed the anti-inflammatory, cancer-fighting benefits of quercetin, but several published characterized its potent anti-thyroid-properties and how it is even being used as a thyroid suppression tool for hyperthyroid in animals and humans. Don't take my word for it; go use google scholar and view the study summaries yourself. I quit the quercetin and lost 13 lbs of fat between 23 June and 17 July, with no cardio, calorie cutting, or any other significant changes. I would really like to find out what the optimal dose is that I could take that would not affect thyroid, but I do not have that knowledge yet. I know it occurs naturally in some foods and maybe I will have to settle for just that. Another lesson learned that I "bought" here is that I need to do much better research on each supplement I add. Even when it seems so great in some literature, there may be other literature that highlights undesirable effects. I think the supplement should have this on the label somehow, since the effect is so well documented.

This does work. But you need to start taking it before the allergy season starts, and must continue to take every day till the season is over. It is not something you take once in awhile, when your allergy symptoms are acting up.

Stops Cough

I have had a chronic cough for years - absolutely uncontrollable. First dosage of the Quercetin made a difference in slowing the cough. Now after finishing the first bottle, I seldom cough. I would recommend this product to anyone with a chronic cough.
