What is Quercetin with Bromelain?
Quercetin is a water soluble bioflavonoid that is found primarily in apples and onions, but is also found in red wine, green tea and leafy vegetables. Quercetin has been shown to support healthy histamine response. Quercetin has antioxidant properties and may also support cardiovascular health.
Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme which means that it assists in the digestion of proteins. Bromelain has also been shown to support healthy histamine response and increase the activity of quercetin. It also may also support cardiovascular health. Bromelain is derived from pineapples.
Bromelain and quercetin work together synergistically, each enhances the activity of the other.
Why should you take Quercetin with Bromelain?
• Antioxydant Properties: Quercetin offers a variety of potential therapeutic uses. It can work as an antioxidant by scavenging damaging particles in the body known as free radicals.
• Hearth Health and Cholesterol: There have been studies done that suggest flavonoids such as quercetin may help reduce the risk of heart disease. Acting as an antioxidant, it can protect against the damage caused by LDL ("bad") cholesterol.
• Sinus Health: The combination of quercetin and bromelain help maintain the proper functioning of the body's histamine response to bring you natural sinus support. When allergens are absorbed into the bloodstream, they cause white blood cells to produce billions of molecules of the allergic antibody IgE. These molecules combine with mast cells and biophils, which are storehouses for histamine. Cell membranes weaken and histamine is released, causing allergy symptoms such as runny nose, itchy eyes, wheezing, etc. Quercetin with Bromelain helps stabilize mast cell membranes, preventing the release of allergy-symptom-causing histamine into the bloodstream. It's also known to inhibit the formation of leukotrienes, which are associated with symptoms of asthma. For best results, Quercetin with Bromelain should be taken daily during allergy season, or year round, as a preventative measure.
• Pain & Inflammation: Bromelain inhibits prostaglandins that cause inflammation and promotes the formation of anti-inflammatory prostaglandins. Quercetin inhibits the release of inflammatory mediators including histamine. Combined, these nutrients enhance the effects of each other and demonstrate significant anti-inflammatory activity. In addition, 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.
There are many other potential therapeutic uses that Quercetin and Bromelain may help prevent or treat. Some of these conditions include high cholesterol, eye disorders, arthritis, fibromyalgia, prostate health, and canker sores.
• Diabetics and pregnant or lactating women should seek the advice of their doctor before beginning any nutritional supplement program.
• Quercetin with Bromelain is contraindicated in patients with a history of abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias); taking blood thinners like coumadin; or who have allergies to pineapple.
