Sinus pain and pressure that often comes with allergies can be intense. A runny nose and itchy, watery eyes can drive anyone nuts. Just before allergy season hits hard I like to add in quercetin and bromelain. Quercetin and bromelain are great for allergies but the major benefit is they both fight inflammation. Keeping the sinus pressure under control can make allergy season tolerable.
It isn’t my first line of defense for allergies I like to start by avoiding allergy triggers and adding vitamins that help allergies. During the worst of allergy season, vitamins alone may not be enough. The first supplements I like to add are probiotics (these can be taken year round) then quercetin and bromelain for allergy season.
What is Quercetin?
Quercetin is a type of flavonoid found in plants. It is in plants with dark colors like red, purple and green, it also can be found in some teas (green tea). Red onions are great natural sources for quercetin. Apples, berries, and grape are fruit sources that contain good amounts.
