Activated Quercetin is a unique bioflavonoid derived from plant sources. In human cell culture studies, quercetin has been shown to inhibit histamine release. Additional research needs to be conducted to confirm the effects of quercetin, if any, in humans. Bromelain is a pineapple enzyme that may assist the body in times of stress. Magnesium ascorbate is a buffered (non-acidic) form of vitamin C that helps support the immune system.

Excellent Quality supplements.
I have tried other brands and always come back to Source Naturals. Quercetin is an onion derivative which stabilizes the (mast) cell membrane during an allergy attack so that no histamine is released--which is what causes our miserable allergy symptoms--thus acting like a natural antihistamine. Vitamin C is needed to activate the quercetin and bromelain further helps things. This is the perfect combo. When I tried Dr's Best I felt no relief whatsoever, even when taken with C caps. I have used these tablets for years, then switched to the SN caps and found equally rapid relief with both. I take 3 during an attack and the symptoms are gone within 15 min. Please note that the tablets contain gluten from wheat, the caps do not. My Dr suspected a gluten allergy and I was on a gluten-free diet for a while, but as tests later revealed, luckily that is one health problem I do not have. The tablets are medium sized and rather flat. I hope this info helps someone out there find the right side-effects free allergy pill.
