Quercetin 300mg - 60 Capsules
QUERCETIN is a flavonol, a type of flavonoid compound found naturally in apples, onions, citrus, sage, tea, red grapes and many other fruits and vegetables. Flavonoids are plant pigments that exhibit potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Quercetin is widely recognized as one of the most pharmacologically active known flavonoids. It is considered by many to be one of nature's most active biological response modifiers. The biological activity and benefits of numerous medicinal plants may be associated with their high quercetin levels.
As an antioxidant, quercetin may help to protect cellular structures and to protect cholesterol and blood vessel linings from free radical damage. Quercetin is recognized as an effective vasodilator and may help to support healthy blood pressure and healthy lung function, as well as prostate and urinary health.
Quercetin supplements are frequently used to provide anti-histamine, anti-inflammatory and anti-allergy benefits. In vitro, quercetin has been shown to help stabilize mast cells, a type of immune cell involved in histamine release and the inflammation response. Quercetin helps to inhibit the synthesis of enzymes that regulate histamine release and degranulation. For this reason, quercetin may be useful in helping to provide relief from allergies.
Quercetin also is being studied for its potential benefits to gut health, since mast cell activation has been associated with irritable and inflammatory gastrointestinal disorders. In general, quercetin may help to support a healthy inflammatory response by reducing the production of prostaglandins and leukotrienes, compounds that promote inflammation throughout the body.
