I have tried other brands and always come back to Source Naturals. Quercetin is an onion derivative which stabilizes the (mast) cell membrane during an allergy attack so that no histamine is released--which is what causes our miserable allergy symptoms--thus acting like a natural antihistamine. Vitamin C is needed to activate the quercetin and bromelain further helps things. This is the perfect combo. When I tried Dr's Best I felt no relief whatsoever, even when taken with C caps. I have used these tablets for years, then switched to the SN caps and found equally rapid relief with both. I take 3 during an attack and the symptoms are gone within 15 min. Please note that the tablets contain gluten from wheat, the caps do not. My Dr suspected a gluten allergy and I was on a gluten-free diet for a while, but as tests later revealed, luckily that is one health problem I do not have. The tablets are medium sized and rather flat. I hope this info helps someone out there find the right side-effects free allergy pill.
Seemed to help

My dad was hesitant to take this "natural stuff," but ended up being satisfied with the results. He claims he's not sure if it worked or if he just got better. Haha. But he felt better each time he took.one. I will purchase more for him. He had no drowsiness like he would with otc allergy meds.

Good combination - Quercetin with Bromelain.

Good combination - Quercetin with Bromelain. I use only 2 pills a day, as i take it together with Resveratrol. When i used same ingredients (Quercetin with Bromelain, Resveratrol from different brands) last time - some vascular asterisks disappeared.
