Benefits at a Glance
Antioxidant that may reduce the effects of aging
Used in inflammatory conditions such as arthritis
May help decrease the symptoms of seasonal allergies and asthma
Quercetin has been shown to be one of the most bioactive flavonoids. Research suggests a supportive role for cellular, immune and cardiometabolic health.
Quercetin offers bioflavonoid support for cellular, cardiometabolic and immune health, including mast cell function.
Quercetin is a bioflavonoid found in fruits and vegetables. The highest levels are found in apples and onions. Like many other bioflavonoids, it has anti-oxidant, anti-artherogenic, and anti-carcinogenic properties. As an antioxidant, Quercetin has been reported to help strengthen blood vessels and may be helpful with allergies, atherosclerosis and cataracts. It is also used in inflammatory conditions like arthritis.
The current research indicates Quercetin works well when combined with other bioflavonoids like soy isoflavones and Resveratrol. It also works synergistically with Green Tea. It is recommended to take Quercetin with Resveratrol or Green Tea to improve the bioavailability of both products.
The recommendation to take it with Resveratrol or Green Tea is because there appears to be a big difference between the effects of quercetin in the lab and in human studies. This is because quercetin has a low bioavailability which may be in part due to the form of quercetin some manufacturers use. Also, studies show a wide range of differences between people who ingest the same amount of quercetin.
Again, Quercetin appears to offer some valuable health benefits but be sure to take it with other bioflavonoids to improve absorption.
