Quercetin: Among the flavonoids, quercetin is one of the most biologically active. One of the best studied effects of quercetin is its ability to prevent mast cells from de-granulating during an allergic response. In preventing mast cell de-granulation, quercetin prevents the release of histamine, one of the major triggers to the overall allergic response.
Stinging Nettles: Nettles leaf has been shown to be effective when used for hayfever.N-Acetyl Cysteine: NAC is a precursor to one of the bodies most potent anti-oxidants, glutathione.
