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
Quercetin is a naturally occurring free radical scavenger that supports healthy seasonal immune system function. Laboratory studies have demonstrated that quercetin can also help to promote normal respiratory function. Bromelain has a long history of use by herbalists and is known to help support a balanced immune system response to environmental challenges. This complementary combination may thus promote year-round respiratory health and support overall seasonal comfort.
