If you suffer from fall allergies, the chances are good that ragweed is to blame. Fortunately, Klaire Labs, Cardiovascular Research LTD, Vital Nutrients, Progressive Laboratories and several other providers offer formulations containing quercetin that may provide relief.
According to the Allergy and Asthma Foundation of America, “When mid-August nights grow longer, ragweed flowers mature and release pollen. Warm weather, humidity and breezes after sunrise help release the pollen. The pollen then travels through the air.” Mid-September is the usually considered the peak of ragweed season.
As Medical News Today reports, “Research suggests that adding quercetin to the diet may help to relieve allergy symptoms.”
Medical News Today identifies some of the food and herbs that contain quercetin, such as apples, black tea, broccoli, grapes, red wine and red onions. “However, taking supplements of quercetin will work better in the treatment of allergies than eating foods that contain it. This is because foods contain significantly lower levels of the flavonoid,” they say.
Quercetin for Health and Wellness
We offer many formulations containing quercetin, including:
This unique formula from Progressive Laboratories is designed to support the nutritional needs of healthy aging. Like quercetin, resveratrol can be found occurring naturally in plants. In addition to its antihistamine properties, it is believed that quercetin aids in the bioavailability of resveratrol.
Klaire Labs combines quercetin with bromelain to regulate the immune cytokine response and reduce inflammation.
The researchers at Klaire Labs have also combined with quercetin with a select blend of bioflavonoids.
This formula from the folks at Cardiovascular Research features high-quality catechin.
If you are looking for quality quercetin on its own to ease the respiratory and sinus symptoms of fall allergies, consider this 250 mg option from Vital Nutrients.
