Now Foods, Quercetin with Bromelain, 240 VegCaps
Quercetin and bromelain may seem like an odd combination, a plant flavonoid and a digestive enzyme from pineapple. And because they're unfamiliar to most, this combination is overlooked by many of the very people who could most benefit from it. But NOW Quercetin with Bromelain can be a very effective product for those with problems related to allergies, sinuses, chronic congestion and rhinitis. It's not a drug, but people sometimes refer to quercetin/bromelain combinations as a "natural antihistamine" which is probably the most useful way to think about its main benefit. Quercetin and bromelain can indeed affect the manufacture and release of histamines (chemicals that promote inflammation of mucous membranes in the nose, sinuses and chest) so it's often used by those with chronic allergies, sinusitis, rhinitis or the common cold. The combination works fantastic for some people, moderately well for others and not at all for some people. You need to consistently use Quercetin with Bromelain for a few weeks to assess the benefit. It may be worth trying, though, since it's very inexpensive and has no drowsy side-effects.

Bromelain, an enzyme derived from pineapple stems, also supports healthy inflammatory response. The combination of the Quercetin and Bromelain therefore provides support for the balanced immune system responses important for the management of occasional seasonal discomfort.
