Quercetin is widely found in nature, providing natural anti-histamine activity, and is particularly beneficial for the relief of respiratory allergy symptoms related to acute or chronic allergic rhinitis (hayfever) and sinusitis. Anti-histamines do not inactivate or affect the release of histamine; instead, they help to protect your body from the ill-effects of large amounts of histamine.

Quercetin is a natural, plant-based chemical

Quercetin is a naturally occurring flavonoid or bioflavonoid, a water-soluble plant pigment found in many fruits, vegetables, leaves and grains. Flavonoids possess potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties useful for a number of health benefits. Other flavonoids, including rutin and hesperidin, have a similar action to that of quercetin, although quercetin is the most active of the flavonoids, providing greater bioavailability for a better therapeutic effect.

As quercetin is a plant pigment, foods that are brightly coloured provide a naturally rich source of quercetin including apples, red onions, red grapes, citrus fruit, tomato, broccoli, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, green tea, capers and parsley.
