For some people enjoying the outdoors or being around pets becomes an issue. Allergies get in the way of us enjoying our natural world. Activated Quercetin supplements can offer people the support they need to get back out and enjoy life.
Quercetin is a heavily researched and studied bioflavonoid for the last 30 years. Bioflavonoids are found in the pigments of plants and are associated with vitamin C. Bioflavonoids and vitamin C are effective antioxidants that protect plants from the elements and are optimal for human health. The issue with bioflavonoids is that our bodies don’t create them.
You may not know what quercetin is though you have probably been eating it for years. Quercetin is found in onions. One of the great things about quercetin as a supplement is it is hypoallergenic which means it contains no citrus, wheat, corn, or other common allergies.
Quercetin in our bodies works with our mast cells, which are the storage areas of histamines. It stabilizes cell membranes and doesn’t allow histamines to over flow into our blood stream. Quercetin does this by inhibiting two enzymes phospholipase A2 and lipozygenase. By inhibiting the release of histamines we are free to enjoy the natural world.
The main issue with Quercetin is its ability to be absorbed. It isn’t absorbed well through water so most Quercetin supplements is not absorbed by your body. The essential ingredient to support quercetin absorption is bromelain, an enzyme derived from pineapples.
