Quercetin is a naturally occurring polyphenol favonoid which is rich in antioxidants. It has anti-allergic functions that
are known for inhibiting histamine production and pro-infammatory mediators. Quercetin can regulate the Th1/
Th2 stability, and decrease the antigen-specifc IgE antibody releasing by B cells. Quercetin has a main role in antiinfammatory and immunomodulatory function which makes it proper for the management of diferent diseases.
