Quercetin with Bromelain - 240 Vcaps

  • Supports Immune Function
  • Supports Healthy Histamine Levels
  • Helps Manage Seasonal Discomfort
  • Vegetarian Formula

Quercetin is a naturally occurring bioflavonoid that supports healthy histamine levels, thereby helping to sustain a balanced immune response.  Bromelain, an enzyme derived from pineapple stems, also supports healthy immune system function.  The combination of Quercetin and Bromelain therefore provides powerful immunomodulating benefits important for the management of occasional seasonal discomfort.

Bromelain is a natural source of protease enzymes, a unique enzyme that helps “digest” non needed protein structures such as inflamed tissue and scar tissue.  Inflammation itself is a necessary function of the body bringing white blood cells and fibrin (scar tissue for repair) to the site of an injury for repair purposes.  Once the injury is healed the body removes the excess debris naturally. 

However when inflammation becomes chronic as it is in IC, the build up of fibrin results in excessive scar tissue, reduced bladder capacity, chronic edema (swelling) with pain and inflammation spreading to other parts of the body.  Bromelain, as an extract from pineapple stem, has been shown in many clinical studies to reduce inflammation and reduce or prevent the formation of scar tissue.

Quercetin is a member of the flavonoid family, a diverse group of therapeutically active compounds found throughout the plant kingdom.  There are many natural food sources of quercetin including onions, citrus fruits, black tea, broccoli and red apples just to name a few.  The varied therapeutic benefits of quercetin include strengthening collagen, improving health of capillaries, strengthening connective tissue and reducing the production of various inflammatory agents. 

Its greatest beneficial use is as a natural antihistamine.  Quercetin works by stabilizing mast cells, preventing them from degranulating and preventing the release of histamine.  The suppression of histamine secretion from mast cells is one of quercetin’s most clinically studied and most important effects
