Quercetin: Among the flavonoids, quercetin is one of the most biologically active. One of the best studied effects of quercetin is its ability to prevent mast cells from degranulating during an allergic response. In preventing mast cell degranulation, quercetin prevents the release of histamine, one of the major triggers to the overall allergic response.
Stinging Nettles Leaf: Stings nettles components have been shown to block important enzymes within the arachidonic acid cascade and have proven their effectiveness in a single-ingredient clinical trial.
N-Acetyl Cysteine: NAC is a precursor to one of the bodies most potent antioxidants, glutathione. NAC breaks (reducing) the disulphide bonds in mucus of the intestines and especially the lungs, making mucus less viscous.
Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C: Supports immune health and acts as an important antioxidant in the body.
Bromelain: Bromelain is the term used to describe a group of enzymes derived from the stem and fruit of the pineapple plant (Ananas comosus). As a plant enzyme, Bromelain has many advantages and uses as a supplemental ingredient. Bromelain has an “Approved” status by the German Commission E for micro inflammations (allergic reactions, localized internal infections). Other activities associated with Bromelain include inhibition of platelet aggregation, decreasing the viscosity of mucus (mucolytic), antibiotic activity and smooth muscle relaxant. It also enhances the absorption of quercetin.
SUGGESTED USE: 1-2 tablets two times per day or as recommended by your health care professional.
