In a number of studies, Quercetin has proven to help with allergies. In a study published in Iran Journal of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, Italian researchers found that quercetin was as effective as an herbal Chinese formula, Food Allergy Herbal Formula (FAHF) in blocking anaphylaxis to peanuts in animal studies.
Nettles also help histamine and allergies, despite the fact that they also contain histamine. In one cell study, several compounds in nettle extract were shown to work against seasonal allergies (hay fever) by fighting inflammation.
In another 1990 study, patients were given freeze-dried nettles for allergies, 57% responded that nettle was ‘effective’ and 48% said the nettle improved symptoms better than allergy medications.
An added advantage for taking nettles is that the phytoconstituents of the plant extract do not cross the blood-brain-barrier. For that reason, it is unlikely to cause the drowsiness or other adverse events associated with common antihistamine OTC medications.
