Quercenase is a combination of quercetin phytosome and bromelain. Bromelain is a compound of proteolytic enzymes derived from the pineapple plant. Bromelain has protein-digesting and immune-enhancing properties. Bromelain also contains constituents that help maintain the body's normal inflammatory response, and may help the absorption of quercetin.
Quercetin stabilizes mast cells that store and release histamine. Quercetin appears to have many other beneficial effects on human health, including cardiovascular protection, as well as protection of the gastrointestinal tract. A number of quercetin's effects appear to be due to its antioxidant activity. Quercetin scavenges free radicals and inhibits oxidation of LDL cholesterol. By itself, and paired with vitamin C, quercetin can reduce the incidence of oxidative damage to skin and nerves caused by glutathione depletion.
The advantage of quercetin phytosome is its advanced phytosome technology. Phytosome complexes are created by a patented process that binds a botanical extract to phosphatidylcholine, a key component of cell membranes.

iHerb Customer Reviews
This helped eliminate hayfever symptoms no pharmaceuticals were able to touch this year and I hadn't realised were hayfever (sore throat and sore tongue) until I took these capsules, but it seemed to lose its effect each day and required more capsules as the week went on. At the price of the capsules it was a costly endeavor as I had to take about 6-8 a day. So this time around, I am trying a different brand.
This a very good product which was delivered to me promptly in Asia. I find this product superior to more traditional-style versions available in the market and helpful in dealing with inflammatory conditions.
