Wow! I received a lot of great feedback on my recent article about the pain-fighting nutrient, quercetin. Here’s what I’ve been asked the most, “What’s your favorite quercetin source and where can I get more of it in my foods?”
If you haven’t already, be sure to check out this article, Got Quercetin, as it details how this much-needed nutrient can help to alleviate pain and inflammation. This is of benefit whether you deal with chronic health challenges such as fibromyalgia or not.
Inflammation is the name of the game
Inflammation, as we know, is a root cause of many health challenges including heart disease, intestinal dysfunction, pain, allergies, and much, much more.
Many years ago, I saw a holistic nutritionist who prescribed a nutritional supplement/food that helped me tremendously. I used this product for about six months and have used it periodically since then. I now recommend it for my clients.
Little did I know, that it contained quercetin as well as an abundance of other powerful anti-inflammatory nutrients! This amazing combination of dozens of ingredients has been proven to help reduce inflammation-related pain and assist with the restoration of gut health.
What product do I use? UltraInflamx has been a mainstay in my kitchen and was a lifesaver for me a decade or so ago. I’m pleased to now recommend Metagenics products and believe them to be of the highest quality in the nutritional supplement food market. You can find Metagenics products sold through your doctor, holistic nutritionists, chiropractors, and other medical professionals.
As a certified nutritional therapist, you can also find these quality products sold through my Rebuilding Wellness Metagenics store here. I do receive some monetary compensation for any sales through my store and am grateful for the support of my business.
A word to the wise: When taking any nutritional food or supplement, you should consult your doctor, naturopath, or health professional to assure that your progress is monitored and assessed.
Of course, food-based sources of quercetin are also a good idea. To add this super nutrient to your meals, be sure to check out my original Quercetin article for a list of common foods.
Additionally, you may wish to check out this Quercetin Food Chart that lists foods in alphabetical order and includes their quercetin content.
