What is Swanson Quercetin & Bromelain?
They may sound like a pair of ridiculously named television super sleuths but actually Swanson Quercetin & Bromelain are two forms of plant based nutrients carefully selected to help you boost your antioxidant profile. Bettering your protection from toxic free radicals.
Free radicals are rogue particles which are created inside our bodies by oxidative stress. They damage cell membranes, alter our DNA and can even cause cell death (apoptosis).
- Free radical scavenger
- Quercetin is found in fruits, plants and flowers
- Bromelain is made from pineapple stems
Fortunately help is at hand. Quercetin, which is derived from plants and flowers such as apples, grapes, dark berries, onions and citrus fruit, is brimming with flavonoids. These flavonoids are actually forms of antioxidant scavengers. They actively seek out free radicals and neutralise them, stopping the process before it can become dangerous to us.
While there are many flavonoids out there, Quercetin is rated as being more effective because of its particular molecular structure. What makes it doubly effective is that when it is combined in a particular complex like Swanson Quercetin & Bromelain, it actually drastically increases its bioavailability.
What is Swanson Quercetin & Bromelain used for?
To understand better how these two antioxidants work so well together we first need to understand a little more about where Bromelain comes from. Crude as it may sound, Bromelain is actually made by grinding down the stem of a pineapple and was, perhaps not surprisingly, first discovered in Hawaii in 1957.
As well as being a strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory in its own right, much like protease and lipase, it is also a protein digesting natural enzyme. What’s great about this is that as part of Swanson Quercetin & Bromelain it works for your body on two fronts.
First, it works as an enzyme, allowing your body to absorb a higher quantity of Quercetin, improving the effects of the flavonoid. Secondly, it has its own anti-inflammatory response, meaning that it is often employed by itself as a therapy for muscle tears and joint swelling.
- Bromelain improves the bioavailability of Quercetin
- It is also a potent anti-inflammatory
- It is used to treat swollen joint and torn muscles
By combining these two great natural therapies, Swanson Quercetin & Bromelain offers you antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and even antihistamine protection (Quercetin helps stabilise the cells that release histamine and cause inflammation).
Bring Swanson Quercetin & Bromelain into your daily diet and know that you protecting your body the natural way.
