Oregon's Wild Harvest have combined freeze-dried organic Nettle with other supporting nutraceuticals to provide a formula that has synergistic action provided by its scientifically researched ingredients. The flavonoid, Quercetin, works synergistically with Vitamin C. N-Acetyl Cysteine is an altered form of the amino acid Cysteine and is not provided by our diet.
Quercetin is a flavonoid that is found in a wide variety of vegetables and herbs such as tea, broccoli, red apples and onions. Preliminary research suggests that Quercetin inhibits the production of histamines in the body. Studies show that the efficacy of Quercetin is boosted when combined with Vitamin C, which also modulates histamine levels.
N-acetyl Cysteine (NAC) is a natural amino acid derivative, which has the ability to break down mucous. It increases the levels of the antioxidant, glutathione to help normal cell function and liver function.
Quercetin, Vitamin C and NAC all possess antioxidant activity. Many researchers are beginning to make a correlation between allergies, inflammation and antioxidant status. Nettle is a well-known traditional remedy. In a recent double-blind study using freeze-dried Nettle leaf, researchers found that the herb relieved allergy symptoms in over half of the participating patients.
