Friday Favorite: Quercetin

May 19th, 2017

This Friday favorite is for Mr Chiots, who suffers terribly from seasonal allergies for the entire spring/summer/fall. In the years we’ve been married he’s pretty much always been on some sort of prescription for them, but they all quit working after a year or two and he has to move on to something else. The drowsiness and other side effects were also an issue for him with the prescriptions. Four years ago, a friend recommended trying Quercetin. Low and behold, this product is a lifesaver for him. He LOVES it!!! It works beautifully for his allergies (another bonus is that it’s very inexpensive).

I thought I’d share here in case any of you suffer from allergies and would like to give it a try. He takes two capsules at breakfast, one at lunch, and two at supper. He’s tried other brands of Quercetin and this one with added C and digestive enzymes works best for him. His favorite part is that there are no side effects, no drowsiness! So, if you also suffer, give this a try, it may just work for you as well.

Do you have seasonal allergies?

    Great timing- all the wonderful varieties of trees here have been wrecking our systems for 2 weeks. I have always had allergies and tried lots of medication also. Thank you for sharing- i will be giving this a try too :)

    Thank you for posting this. We never suffered allergies until we moved to MA, now the whole family gets hit every spring and fall! Nothing bad enough to need prescription medication, or even a daily antihistamine, so perhaps this will be just the thing to bring relief. Will definitely try this!
