Quercetin is a naturally occurring flavonol, or flavonoid, found in plants. Red wine, onions, green tea, apples, and berries are some foods that contain quercetin.
Research has demonstrated the potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of quercetin. Mast cells play a crucial role in bridging innate and adaptive immunity in the fight against infections. They are immune effector and modulatory cells. Histamine and other substances are released into the bloodstream by mast cells in response to the presence of an allergen, which causes an allergic reaction. Quercetin reduces the production and release of histamine and other allergic and inflammatory chemicals, by stabilizing mast cell membranes. (1)
Bromelain is an enzyme found in pineapple. It is known to be helpful in allergy-related inflammation as well as swelling. Research has supported bromelain to be an immunomodulator, which is a substance that stimulates or suppresses the immune system. The majority of inflammatory mediators are reduced by bromelain. Eosinophils, T cells, and immunological signaling molecules that cause inflammation may all be decreased by bromelain, which has also shown to play a significant anti-inflammatory impact in a number of illnesses. Improvements in breathing difficulties and reduction in nasal mucus have also been shown with the administration of bromelain. (2)
Stinging Nettle is a perennial flowering plant that is utilized for therapeutic purposes. By acting as an anti-inflammatory, the leaf of the stinging nettle may be helpful in easing hay fever symptoms. According to some studies, using stinging nettle leaf as a treatment can help with symptoms like runny nose, itchy eyes, and sneezing. (3) Its leaves are rich in antioxidants like polyphenols and carotenoids as well as fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant components. All parts of the plant, including the leaves, stems, roots, and seeds, have anti-proliferative, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, analgesic, anti-infectious, hypotensive, and anti-ulcer properties. It can also help prevent cardiovascular disease.
It has been demonstrated that stinging nettle can treat a number of seasonal allergies. Some stinging nettle extract combinations have been demonstrated in studies to dramatically lessen allergic responses. Its tea has long been associated with the treatment of asthma in Australia. Two pathways account for the majority of nettle’s anti-allergenic effects. Nettle also inhibits tryptase, which reduces mast cell degranulation and the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines in addition to inhibiting histamine H1 receptors. (4)
Environmental allergies like pollen, dust, and pet dander are the most common causes of immune reactions but can also include foods, bug bites, and medications. By supplementing with Revive+ during the peak of seasonal allergies, you can lessen the impact of allergens on the immune system.
