Quercetin Nettles Plus, Allergies
DescriptionQuercetin is a very active bioflavonoid that is often found in grapefruit, green tea, onion, and evening primrose, among other plants. Studies have shown that Quercetin inhibits the manufacture and release of histamine from the mast cells, thereby effecting allergy symptoms such as runny nose and watery itchy eyes. It also acts as an antioxidant. Vitamin C inhibits histamine release and helps break it down.
Current research shows how effective freeze-dried Nettle preparations are in the treatment of spring allergy symptoms. In a study conducted at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland Oregon, researchers found that 58% of the 69 patients suffering from allergic rhinitis reported moderate to significant relief from their symptoms.* Freeze-dried Nettle leaves are also proving to be effective for irritating reactions to dogs and cat dander and pollen.*
