NOW Quercetin with Bromelain 

Helps relieve the pain of nonbacterial chronic prostatitis. Although the annual prevalence in the general population of diagnosed chronic pelvic pain syndrome is 0.5%, the overall prevalence of symptoms suggestive of chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) is 6.3%. New evidence also suggests that the prevalence of CP/CPPS is much higher in teenage males than once previously suspected. CP/CPPS is characterised by pelvic or perineal pain without evidence of urinary tract infection, lasting longer than 3 months. There are no definitive diagnostic tests for CP/CPPS. This is a poorly understood disorder, even though it accounts for 90%-95% of prostatitis diagnoses. It is found in men of any age, with the peak onset in the early 30s. CP/CPPS may be inflammatory (Category IIIa) or non-inflammatory (Category IIIb). Quercetin is one of the few effective therapies for this condition.

Quercetin is a naturally occurring bioflavonoid found in high concentrations in various fruits and vegetables (e.g. green tea, onions, berries). Documented properties include activity as an antioxidant, tyrosine kinase and nitric oxide inhibitor, and anti-inflammatory through interference with NF-kB, a protein complex that plays a key role in regulating the immune response to infection. This explains why quercetin is a common natural therapy for balancing immune related conditions such as seasonal allergies. Bromelain, an extract from pineapple is known to have anti-inflammatory properties. It is an effective supporting nutrient for maintaining a healthy immune response and has been shown to increase the effectiveness of quercetin in relieving the pain of nonbacterial chronic prostatitis.
