It’s allergy season for me.

During allergy season, I take quercetin.  Thomas at Compass Classroom told me about Quercetin years ago.  I’ve been taking it ever since.  It really seems to help me.  Consider giving quercetin a try if you are currently suffering from allergies.

Quercetin is a yellow pigment found in many fruits, vegetables, leaves, and grains.  It is believed to possess antihistaminic and anti-inflammatory qualities.

Quercetin comes from the Latin word Quercus meaning oak.  Incidentally, this is also where we get the word Albuquerque.  Albuquerque is a combination of Albus (white) and Quercus (oak).  Albuquerque means White Oak.

You can take it in pill form, or you can just eat apples.  But, don’t peel them.  Quercetin lies just underneath the skin of apples.
