Spring is here and we all enjoy the sights and smells of this magic time of the year, but some of us have a rough time due seasonal allergies caused by the higher pollen and dust levels that come with this time of the year.
Below we explain what each of these supplements can do to help.
Solgar® Quercetin Complex with Ester C® PlusSHOP
Quercetin is a non-citrus bioflavonoid that works in synergy with Vitamin C. Bioflavonoids are naturally present in fruit, vegetables and herbs, and are a class of powerful phytochemicals. They help maximise the benefits of Vitamin C as they prevent the breakdown of this immune supporting vitamin in the body.
Exclusive to Solgar, Quercetin complex is a proprietary formula and contains additional natural plant bioflavonoids, powerful antioxidants that naturally accompany Vitamin C in fruits and vegetables. This complex is a unique formula that utilises a premium patented, non-acidic, form of vitamin C, Ester C® known as “The Better Vitamin C”. The highly absorbable Ester C® is also gentle on the stomach compared to traditional forms of vitamin C, which is less likely to irritate and making this product a good choice for everyone.
Once taken Ester C® is also retained by your immune cells for longer than regular Vitamin C, giving you superior immune support. Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin that helps fight free radicals and to maintain a healthy immune system. It has multiple benefits which support optimal health, ranging from promoting healthy skin, reducing tiredness and fatigue and supporting healthy bones and teeth.
In addition, the complex includes Bromelain and natural bioflavanoids. Bromelain has been added to this specialised formula. Bromelain is a digestive enzyme found naturally in pineapples. Solgar® Quercetin Complex’s unique combination of Quercetin, Ester-C® and Bromelain, with a daily dose of 2 vegetable capsules, via Ester-C® contributes to:
- The normal function of the immune system
- Normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones, teeth and cartilage
- Normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin
- The protection of cells from oxidative stress
- Normal functioning of the nervous system
- Reduction of tiredness and fatigue

Solgar® NAC 600 mgSHOP
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are needed in several internal functions of the body. They are classified as “essential” or “non-essential”, with essential amino acids meaning they cannot be manufactured by the body and must be supplied in the diet to maintain good all-round health. Amino acids can be further used by the body to create hormones, enzymes, neurotransmitters, antibodies and nutrient carriers. A suboptimal intake of the essential amino acids increases the body’s need for the non-essential amino acids either through diet or supplementation. Foods that increase amino acid intake are meat, beans, cheese and eggs.
L-Cysteine is an amino acid, bearing sulphur, which plays a role in metabolism as it assists the synthesis from fatty acids into energy. It is also involved in the synthesis of keratin, the protein in skin, hair and nails. It can be used to make glutathione.
Solgar® NAC 600 mg comes in a daily dose of 1 vegetable capsule, for easy absorption.

Solgar® MSM 1000 mgSHOP
Methylsulfonylmethane provides sulphur which is needed for many different essential functions within the body.
