    Lifetime Health Australia: Find Natural Allergy Relief this Season with Quercetin (amazon) (shopzilla)

    Sydney, NSW (PRWEB) March 14, 2013

    Quercetin is therefore associated with the health benefits of antioxidants from fighting the common cold to improved signs of ageing and supporting general health.

    Antioxidant foods such as blueberries, blackberries, red grapes, citrus fruits, leafy greens and strangely enough, onions, are good sources of quercetin.

    Quercetin is also found in bioflavonoid-rich natural health supplements like bee pollen and propolis.
