Diamond Nutritionals’ Sinus Formula provides support for those suffering from seasonal allergies.
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: Nettles leaf has been shown to be effective when used for hay fever.
N-Acetyl Cysteine: NAC is a precursor to one of the body’s most potent anti-oxidants, glutathione. NAC breaks (reducing) the disulphide bonds in mucus of the intestines and especially the lungs, making mucus less viscous.
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.
SUGGESTED USE: As a dietary supplement, Loading Dose: 2 capsules three times per day for 7-10 days. Acute: 2-3 capsules as needed. Maintenance: 1 or more capsules per day or as recommended by your health care professional.
