Quercetin - A Natural Solution for Hay Fever

Hay fever & it's symptoms

Hay fever affects thousands of people every year, with symptoms that affect the eyes, nose, and throat. Itchy eyes, nose, and throat, running or streaming eyes and nose, constant sneezing, itchy roof of the mouth are just some of the symptoms that people experience. Unfortunately, some of you will have symptoms from early March right through to late autumn; especially if your symptoms are triggered by all the various sources of pollen which can include pollen from trees, shrubs, weeds, or grass. This can make for a very long season of sneezing. Symptoms can also be triggered by dust, animal dander, and perfume.

What causes hay fever symtoms?

Hay fever happens because your immune system thinks that pollen or other airborne allergens are dangerous to your body. So, in order to protect itself your body reacts by releasing histamine and increasing inflammation. The combination of histamine and inflammation contribute to many of the symptoms you experience. A natural approach would be to use natural antihistamines and support the immune system so that it doesn’t overreact to pollen.

Quercetin is a natural antihistamine

Quercetin has natural anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antihistamine properties. It’s thought to help hay fever symptoms by inhibiting the manufacture and release of histamine. Vitamin C contributes to normal functioning of your immune system and research suggests it may reduce histamine. Bromelain found in pineapple has natural anti-inflammatory properties. Quercetin and vitamin C are found in fruit and vegetables. A wide variety of brightly coloured fruit and vegetables in your diet will help ensure that you’re getting these nutrients.

Higher Nature Quercetin and Bromelain a natural solution

It’s recommended that you start supplements at least four or five weeks before exposure but it’s never too late, just get started on it as soon as you can. It’s suitable from age four onwards.
