Organika features the unique combination of quercetin and bromelain – two key ingredients that work synergistically together.
Quercetin functions on an antioxidant level to reduce damage and irritation caused by free radicals while suppressing your histamine response – the body’s reaction to allergens. Bromelain functions on an enzymatic and protein level by limiting the action of metabolites and neutrophils in the inflammatory process. It also assists in increasing your body’s absorption and utilization of quercetin, which makes this combination so effective.
Quercetin, a bioflavonoid widely found in plant foods and particularly high in red onions and kale, has been studied particularly for its antiviral properties. It’s also essential for vitamin C absorption. It acts as an antioxidant, an antihistamine and an anti-inflammatory.
When the body comes in contact with an allergen, the immune system responds. Mast cells, a type of immune cell, release histamine and other immune substances. This can cause allergic symptoms such as runny nose and itchy, watery eyes. Quercetin stabilizes the membranes of these mast cells, decreasing the allergic symptoms.
Bromelain is a naturally-occurring enzyme found in the stem of pineapples. In addition to being used as a protein digestive aid, the enzymes in bromelain inhibit inflammatory chemicals called prostaglandins. Bromelain has been shown to decrease inflammation in conditions such as arthritis and sinusitis. As well, bromelain, when in combination with quercetin, helps to improve its absorption.

Why do we combine quercetin and bromelain?
Quercetin is not easily absorbed by the body on its own. When combined with bromelain, however, absorption is improved, allowing more benefits to reach your insides.
How can I get more quercetin from my diet?
Quercetin is found in a variety of foods including apples, berries, Brassica vegetables, capers, grapes, onions, shallots, tea, and tomatoes, as well as many seeds, nuts, flowers, barks, and leaves. Even honey, depending on what flowers they pollinate, can be a source of quercetin.
What about quercetin from herbal sources?
Quercetin is also found in Ginkgo biloba, St. John’s Wort, and elderberries in the more herbal category. Quercetin is one of the properties that make these herbs so effective.
Where do you source your ingredients from?
Organika’s quercetin is sourced from the flowers of the Japanese Pagoda tree, Sophora japonica. The flowers have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries. Bromelain is sourced from the stems of pineapples, Ananas comosus.
Can I get more bromelain from my diet as well?
Yes! By eating ripe pineapple, particularly the harder core, you can eat some bromelain that can help maximize your digestion and inflammation.
