Quercetin supplements for allergies?
I eat a pretty clean Primal diet and have tried various other tricks like sprays, probiotics, supplements and herbs, but I still get a stuffy nose and sore eyes frequently. This is year-round rather than seasonal.
I've read about quercetin and I'd like to know if anyone here has tried supplementing it and found an improvement in their chronic allergies?
I eat quite a lot of quercetin-rich foods anyway, such as oranges, berries, tomatoes, bell peppers, green leaves... but I wonder if supplementing as well would give my immune system a boost? If I were to buy the supplements I would have to order some as my local health food shop doesn't stock it, so I'd like to know if it's worth it.
