Quercetin Confirmed?

QuercetinA while back I shared that I had started taking Quercetin to help control my allergies. Quercetin is supposed to be anti-inflammatory as well as block the release of histamines. There are so many factors playing into my allergies that it’s so hard to tell what I’m doing that is making the most difference. I’m just thankful that I’m still feeling so much better than I was at this time last year.

Yesterday I unknowingly forgot to take my Quercetin in the morning. The unknowingly part is very important because if I did it on purpose there would be no telling what was actual symptoms and what was my brain making me think it was symptoms.  All day I was itching my nose, blowing my nose, and sneezing. I was trying to figure out if I had eaten something I shouldn’t have. I know we didn’t spend too much time outside because it’s SO hot! I hadn’t changed anything around the house. I couldn’t figure out what bothering me so much.

It wasn’t until I went to take a different dinner-time pill that I realized my morning pills were still there. Coincidence? I think not! These same symptoms also happened one other day that I forgot to take my Quercetin. Only that day I had been cleaning out our closet, switching out winter clothes for summer clothes. So I had no way to tell if my allergies that day were from my missed dose or from going through winter sweaters and such.

You never know how true the claims of these herbal type vitamins will be, but I’m convinced that this one is worth the small cost to keep taking it. I made sure I remembered to take it today, we’ll see how much better I feel than yesterday.
