Having Problems With Allergies

If there’s one thing that many of us need this time of year it’s seasonal allergy support. If you don’t, lucky you. Seasonal allergies can have us feeling run down and can impact our immune systems. A supplement called Quercetin can help us.

Quercetin is a plant based antioxidant. Remember, antioxidants help us fight something called free radicals. When free radicals build up, they can throw our bodies out of balance and start to attack our cells and affect our overall health. This can include things like advanced aging and inadequate responses to inflammation. The main benefits of quercetin include:

  • Antioxidant support (fighting free radicals)
  • Decrease in histamine production (allergy support)
  • Can promote healthy aging
  • Can promote healthy blood vessels and blood flow
  • Since it is plant based, quercetin can be found in a variety of foods including:
  • Apples
  • Onions
  • Tomatoes
  • Broccoli
  • Blueberries

It should be noted that sometimes it may be difficult for the body to absorb all of the quercetin found in dietary sources. This can make supplementation more effective and something to consider to receive more of its benefits.

Thorne’s Quercetin Phytosome has great absorbability and has been optimized to ensure you’re getting all you can. Quercetin can interact with certain medications so confirm with your doctor that it is safe for you to supplement. If you feel you could benefit from quercetin and you’ve got the green light, try it out!
