Antihistamines aren’t working on my allergy symptoms. Can a supplement help?
Absolutely! I’ve tested a number of supplements, and nothing has worked better than a combination of 250 mg of quercetin and 125 mg of bromelain. Quercetin inhibits the release of histamine, the inflammatory compound that triggers sneezing and itchy eyes. It also increases the secretion of mucus to keep allergens out of nasal passageways. But since quercetin is poorly absorbed through the digestive tract, bromelain is needed to improve absorption. Bromelain also works synergistically with quercetin to suppress inflammation from allergens. For best results, take one or two capsules one hour before eating three times daily.
