Quercetin Bromelain

The quercetin bromelain supplement combination is a rarity: two natural remedies with real clinical evidence to support they each work come together in a combination that is also clinically proven to have a synergistic effect. If you’re suffering from anything that causes inflammation or originates as inflammation, you owe it to yourself to at least try a quercetin bromelain supplement.

On to the real topic at hand: What is bromelain and how does it work with quercetin to make such an effective natural anti-inflammatory supplement?

Bromelain, like protease and lipase, is a protein-digesting natural enzyme. Bromelain works with quercetin in two ways: First, as an enzyme, it helps your body absorb a higher percentage of the quercetin you consume. Second, bromelain is proven to Continue reading

Quercetin For Interstitial Cystitis

Since quercetin is a potent and versatile supplement even outside of treating interstitial cystitis, I’ll also discuss other uses for it as well as quercetin side-effects.

Interstitial Cystitis (IC) is an unfortunately common urinary bladder disease characterized by pain or pressure in the pelvic area and urgency (frequently needing to void your bladder). Pain during urination as well as during sexual intercourse is also common.

It is often misdiagnosed as urethritis, prostatitis, urethral syndrome, and sometimes arguably a few other conditions (such as trigonitis). Continue reading

Quercetin Benefits – Energy

While there are many established quercetin benefits and even more alleged quercetin benefits, one I had not considered was quercetin’s possible ability to help individuals tap their energy reserves. This more recently discovered benefit is implied by a recent study conducted by the Arnold School of Public Health (University of South Carolina) and partly funded by the United States Department of Defense. This study was published in the International Journal of Sports Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism in 2009.

The study, which involved healthy but untrained adult men and women (college students), measured subjects fatigue capacity on stationary bikes and their VO2max. VO2max, which was completely new to me upon reading this study, measures an individual’s maximum oxygen capacity. Continue reading

Natural Treatment For Interstitial Cystitis

Many of these remedies have helped many people, but I can’t give you any guarantees. As I’ve said before, regular consumption of quercetin with bromelain has provided me personally the greatest benefits. But everyone will be different so don’t give up hope if it doesn’t work for you and move on to another therapy.

I always suggest you consider a natural treatment when considering various drugs and their side-effects.

My favorite interstitial cystitis natural treatment is quercetin. Quercetin reduces inflammation and helps prevent infection. There is a much clinical evidence supporting its use. If you have a sensitive stomach, I suggest you read my article about the possible side effects before trying it. Continue reading
