Plagued by Allergies?

Quercetin Can Help!

Quercetin is an antioxidant flavonoid found in many plants and foods. Taking quercetin can help with your allergies.

Research has found that quercetin has anti-allergic and antihistamine properties. In one animal study, researchers found that quercetin could reduce the respiratory effects of allergies in mice by lowering airway inflammation. (This is also helpful to prevent Covid or reduce symptoms if you get it.) 

Quercetin is naturally present in many foods and herbs, including:

  • apples
  • berries
  • black tea
  • broccoli
  • buckwheat
  • Ginkgo biloba
  • green tea
  • peppers
  • red onions

Taking supplemental quercetin will work better in the treatment of allergies more than eating foods that contain it. This is because foods contain significantly lower levels of this flavonoid.

Quercetin is generally safe for most people. It may cause headaches and tingling in the arms and legs of some people when taken in very high doses, and if taken in high doses over the long term, may cause kidney damage.
