The combination of quercetin and bromelain help maintain the proper functioning of the body's histamine response to bring you natural sinus support and natural sinus pressure relief. Quercetin is an antioxidant that supports the body's inflammation response and histamine processes, while bromelain increases the absorption of quercetin, and is a powerful inflammation response supporter and protein-digesting enzyme. Quercetin and bromelain provide you with the necessary "one-two punch" to support you during the pollen season.
Quercetin is a member of the bioflavanoid family, a group of coloring pigments that provide plants with antioxidant protection against environmental stress. Quercetin’s potent antioxidant and inflammation supporting properties work to inhibit inflammatory responses by helping reduce the amount of histamine to be released and in turn natural sinus pressure relief. Histamine is the chemical that initiates the itching, sneezing, and swelling of a sudden reaction.
Bromelain is a protein digesting enzyme that is added to enhance the absorption of quercetin into the body. Bromelain is widely used in sports medicine to combat the discomfort and swelling of bruises, sprains, and muscle tears. One study conducted by an orthopedic surgeon showed that administering bromelain to 59 of his patients resulted in a clear reduction in both swelling and discomfort.*
