Quercetin Bromelain Vitamin C Complex 2021

Quercetin is a pigment that is found in plants, vegetables, and fruits, and serves as an immune nutrient offering many health benefits. Elderberry, red onions, white onions and cranberries are the richest sources of quercetin. It is a flavonoid and antioxidant that may help to reduce inflammatory cytokines, infections, allergies and  anti-blood clot property . Research has found that quercetin may be particularly beneficial for viral respiratory infections. An animal study published in the  Nature (Aug 2012) , concluded that quercetin has anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-fibrotic (anti-scarring) properties. Another study ( JCI May 2012 ) on rutin (quercetin molecule bound to a sugar molecule called rutinose), commonly found in fruits and vegetables and sold over the counter as a dietary supplement, has been shown to inhibit the formation of blood clots in an animal model of thrombosis.

Does Quercetin make COVID-10 vaccines more effective?

Older people have weaker immune responses and are known to respond less well than younger adults to many vaccines, including the seasonal influenza vaccine . This is partly down to frailty, which cannot be easily remedied, but can also be due to deficiencies in vitamins and minerals – known as micronutrients. Immune health and vaccines go hand in hand. For the immune system to fight off infection or generate good protection against a disease following vaccination, it needs a variety of micronutrients . This is likely to be just as true for COVID-19 as for other diseases. Given that malnutrition is common among elderly people , raising their vitamin and mineral levels before they get vaccinated could be a way of boosting the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines.  According to Martin Floreani : "One does not really work without the other, vaccines are only as good as your immune system. The vaccine is the blueprint, but ultimately your immune system is the one doing all the work. Th

Best Medical Pulse Oximeters for Home Use 2021

Pulse oximeters, which simply clip onto your fingertip, are non-invasive devices that can measure blood oxygen saturation as well as pulse (heart rate). They are relatively inexpensive (about $20) and can be purchased for home ("non-medical") use. The best pulse oximeter for home use will probably be different from the best pulse oximeter in a hospital. Although pulse oximeters for home use are not as accurate as FDA-approved "medical" pulse oximeters, which cost much more and undergo more rigorous testing, comparison studies indicate that some (but not all) non-medical pulse oximeters can help signal when medical attention is needed in conditions such as COVID-19, asthma, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Collecting data on oxygen levels is crucial because people with COVID-19 may suffer from "silent hypoxia", a dangerous condition in which they do not outwardly appear to be short of breath, but are  confirmed to be so through a pulse oxim
