Over the counter hay fever relief tends to inhibit the effect of histamine, but quercetin inhibits the release of histamine, stopping the reaction in its tracks.
Quercetin is a non-citrus bioflavonoid that works in synergy with Vitamin C. Bioflavonoids are naturally present in fruit, vegetables and herbs, and are a class of powerful phytochemicals. They help maximise the benefits of Vitamin C as they prevent the breakdown of this immune supporting vitamin in the body.
Exclusive to Solgar, Quercetin complex is a proprietary formula and contains additional natural plant bioflavonoids, powerful antioxidants that naturally accompany Vitamin C in fruits and vegetables. This complex is a unique formula that utilises a premium patented, non-acidic, form of vitamin C, Ester C® known as “The Better Vitamin C”. The highly absorbable Ester C® is also gentle on the stomach compared to traditional forms of vitamin C, which is less likely to irritate and making this product a good choice for everyone.
