Quercetin

Quercetin is a bioflavonoid. Bioflavonoids are naturally found in foods containing vitamin C and are especially abundant in the rinds of citrus fruits, in green peppers and in tomatoes. Quercetin acts as an antioxidant and a Vitamin C preserver, and has anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties.

Quercetin is being studied for apparent beneficial effects including cardiovascular protection, anti-cancer activity, anti-ulcer effects, anti-allergy activity, cataract prevention, antiviral activity, and anti-inflammatory effects. In the body, Quercetin has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity, where it can protect cellular structures and blood vessels from the damaging effects of free radicals. As an antioxidant, it protects LDL cholesterol ("bad" cholesterol) from becoming damaged. Quercetin prevents damage to blood vessels by certain forms of cholesterol and other chemicals produced by the body. Quercetin blocks an enzyme that leads to accumulation of sorbitol, which has been linked to nerve, eye, and kidney damage in those with diabetes. Quercetin may inhibit the overproduction of both nitric oxide and protein-tyrosine kinase. Quercetin inhibits the production and release of histamine and other allergic/inflammatory substances. Histamines are responsible for allergic and inflammatory reactions. The body may use Quercetin to strengthen the mast cells, involved in the release of histamine, potentially inhibiting that activity. Free radicals are thought to contribute to the development of certain eye disorders including cataracts and macular degeneration. Flavonoids, such as Quercetin, neutralize free radicals and may play a role in the prevention and/or treatment of these eye conditions. Quercetin and other flavonoids from fruits and vegetables have long been considered important substances to possibly help prevent cancer. Solgar supplies several different Quercetin supplement products such as Solgar Quercetin Complex Vegicaps 50 Capsules.
