While looking for Bromelian products we came acrosss this. Bromelain is believed to assist a number of issues, however we were looking at it from a digestive enzyme perspective.
Bromelain which is derived from Pineapple assists with the breakdown of proteins, which is a tough job for your digestion. For those who doubt Bromelain, we suggest that you try eating fresh pineapple after a meal, and see how quickly any feeling of fullness will be eradicated.
We had not encountered Quercetin before and were curious about its properties. Quercetin is believed to assist the immune system, and in particular this particular product appears to target seasonal allergies.
While our main concern is IBS, many sufferers often complain of sinus problems or low immunity. Feeling run down often accompanies IBS, so we were interested to see if this product could help.
Product Description :
Supports Immune Function Supports Healthy Histamine Levels Helps Manage Seasonal Discomfort* A Dietary Supplement Vegetarian Formula Quercetin is a naturally occurring bioflavonoid that supports healthy histamine levels, thereby helping to sustain a balanced immune response.Bromelain, an enzyme derived from pineapple stems, also supports healthy immune system function.
The combination of Quercetin and Bromelain therefore provides powerful immunomodulating benefits important for the management of occasional seasonal discomfort.*
Firstly, as a Bromelian product, this works well. Bromelain is a natural and pleasant addition to the digestive process, and this is a high quality Bromelain product.
On this level the Now product worked well for all involves in testing. If you feel you would benefit from a product which eases the burden on your digestive system this may well be the one for you. It would also help those on high protein diets of any kind. Protein requires an awful lot of your digestive system, so a natural aid such as this may just help.
On the Quercetin we are unsure. Some of us felt it worked others felt it did not. While this is typical of IBS products we do not feel that we could make an honest recommendation based upon these findings. There was no real concensus of opinion, so we do recommend that you give it a try if you feel that you suffer from seasonal allergies, although it does not promise to work as a quick fix.
