Reactions to quercetin are not common. It is a powerful, effective anti-inflammatory/anti-pain and anti-allergy agent. I take 8 grams of it daily in two divided doses and it is the primary thing that sustains my screwed-up immune system.
Because it irritates my stomach in large doses, I buy the Jarrow brand, which is already compressed into capsule form, and transfer it into enteric capsules I buy from AromaReady.com. The enteric capsules don't release the quercetin until it reaches my gut, bypassing my stomach and the irritation that large doses of quercetin would cause there. It takes time to re-encapsulate it, but you pay for your thrills, or in this case your problems. It's hellaciously better than suffering and watching myself decline and die, which is what happens without it. I recently had to stop taking it for six weeks, and I did nothing but lose ground. I'm in the midst of trying to recover.
