Many people have never heard of Quercetin however it is one of the most useful supplements for hayfever and allergies.
The symptoms of hayfever occur through the interaction of the offending allergen and IgE in the body. This then causes
the release of histamine and other inflammatory mediators. You then end up with watery eyes, sneezing, nasal discharge and discomfort!
Quercetin is a bioflavonoid vitamin and a great antioxidant. It helps allergies and hayfever by inhibiting histamine release by the mast cells. It also reduces inflammation and IgE production. This then means your symptoms are reduced. It is also used for acute and chronic allergies such as hives and asthma.
Quercetin, along with other bioflavonoids such as Rutin, are also great for capillary fragility, varicose veins and bruising.
