  • Quercitin

    A couple of days ago I found a page on here that I thought I read that Quercitin is not really recommended anymore because not proven or not enough people said it helped? It was on the page that said top 10 supplements cut can't find it now. If someone has a link to that page please post. Also will somebody please give me an update on Quercitin and how it helps with the bladder. I am switching my supplement and one option is the Desert Harvest Aloe with Glucosamine and Chondroiten. I used to take Cystorenew but it is too expensive and the only thing that really is missing from the DH Aloe is the Quercitin.

    I actually started taking a supplement that had Glucosamine, Collagen, Chondroiten sulfate and Hyualuronic acid that you could buy at walmart for only $13.97 and added aloe for only $9.00. But now looks like the DH aloe option would be good too. Thank you.
    Diagnosed with IC sept. 2008, treatment then was hydrodistension, heparin instills for about 4 months and IC diet; symptoms lasted until sept 2009. Then only a couple of relapses overworking, stress etc. Then completely in remission until Jan. 2016 now pretty much symptom free as of mid august 2016.

    Symptoms: overall body aches, dryness feeling at vaginal opening, sitting makes it worse, standing makes it worse, stress makes it worse, no frequency or urgency, worse symptom is at night with panging of uretha/bladder.

    - went on diet, started Cysto Renew 3/31/16 and yoga at least twice a week.
    - tried uribel but really not for my symptoms since it seems it is for frequency and painful urination which I don't have
    - Ativan when needed to relax.
    - Elmiron only took for a couple of days; didn't like it
    - took atarax 1/2 10mg atarax pill at night really helped but gave me nightmares
    - tramadol worked great for back aches
    - generic claritin D worked best for me for calming bladder down and my panging
    - still taking cysto renew 4x a day and believe this and diet helped the most.
    - took dosage of cysto renew down to 2x a day and still ok

    If you do a search for quercetin, you should be able to find the post --- spelling it quercitin is only one letter off, but the search engine can be irritatingly sensitive.

    Quercetin hasn't been researched and approved by the FDA, but there are some who swear by it. Try the search with the "e" and you should find some posts that will help you make a decision.

    Sending healing wishes,
    Stay safe
