NFH Quercetin SAP (Bioflavonoids) in a pack of 60 Capsules is for ALLERGY AND INFLAMMATION MANAGEMENT.
What is Quercetin?
Quercetin is a bioflavonoid that is found in onions, apples, black tea, and grapefruit. Quercetin has antioxidant activity and has long been used in herbal medicine. Quercetin is typically used as a blood vessel protectant.
Quercetin has also been studied for its effect on managing allergies. Quercetin has shown to inhibit mast-cell secretions and has the ability to downregulate histamine production (Histamine Intolerance) via inhibition of the enzyme histidine decarboxylase (HDC) mRNA from human mast cells.
What is Bromelain?
Bromelain is a proteolytic digestive enzyme gotten from the stem of the pineapple plant. It has been found to counteract the fibrin and kinin pathways, which stimulate plasmin that blocks endogenous arachidonic-acid mobilization and reduces prostaglandin synthesis. The reduction of prostaglandin synthesis reduces localized inflammation and edema.
Studies suggest that bromelain may also enhance the effectiveness of quercetin, hence making their combination highly effective.
