Staff Pick of the Month - June 2019: Quercetin 

What is Quercetin?

Quercetin is a flavonoid (also considered a bioflavonoid - refer here for more info).  It can be found in colored fruits and vegetables, such as those with red or orange pigmentation.  Quercetin is considered a powerful antioxidant, and has strong anti-inflammatory properties that are beneficial to our health.

Quercetin is considered a strong antioxidant.  This means it helps to stop free radicals from damaging cells, thus helping to protect the immune system.  In addition, Quercetin helps to inhibit certain pathways from generating uncomfortable or painful inflammation ("What is Quercetin," 2019).  Therefore, Quercetin has the potential to help reduce pain related that is related to inflammation. 

Sure sounds like an awesome supplement :)!

Allergies and Quercetin:

Do you suffer from seasonal allergies? Do you have itchy watery eyes, runny nose, or cough?? 

Quercetin can help!

When allergens enter the body, it starts to produce chemicals known as histamines. These histamines are what cause you to sneeze, cough or have itchy watery eyes and a runny nose! Your body reacts this way to help remove the unwanted allergens from the body.  In addition, the release of these histamines can impact the respiratory system leading to redness, skin irritation, or swelling.  Thus, using Quercetin will help to reduce the excessive release of histamine, without the drowsy effects of regular allergy medication. ("What is Quercetin," 2019). 

This means you can treat all those allergy symptoms, without the worry of drowsy medication effects!

Think it's too good to be true?  Alanna, our marketing coordinator shares her experience!

"I never used Quercetin until I learned about it through working at IHC! Initially, I was hesitant to use this supplement because I was used to treating my seasonal allergies with medications like Clartin or Reactine. Since switching to Quercetin, I have been able to manage all my seasonal allergy symptoms. It works fast and the results speak for themselves. For those that suffer from seasonal allergies, know that every day is different, and many things can affect those allergies on a daily basis. Quercetin is now my go-to supplement for daily allergy support, and I never have to worry about drowsy effects of allergy medications again!"
