The word 'quercetin' may sounds unfamiliar to you, but it is actually found in many foods, especially fruits, vegetables, leaves, seeds, and grains. Apart from antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory properties, quercetin can also neutralise free radicals, which may reduce the risk of the onset and development of many diseases and may also delay the skin ageing process. Read more to learn about other fantastic benefits of quercetin!

d e f i n i t i o n :

It belongs to a very diverse group of compounds of plant origin called FLAVONOIDS, which includes about 8000 compounds with different structures and properties. Flavonoids are divided into subclasses such as flavanols, flavones, flavanones, flavonols, isoflavones and anthocyanides. Quercetin is classified as a FLAVONOL.

It is mainly found in fruits (APPLES 🍎, GRAPES 🍇, ORANGES 🍊, STRAWBERRIES 🍓 and others) and vegetables (ONIONS 🧅, SPINACH, BROCCOLI 🥦, KALE and others).


🍇 Anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, helps reduce allergic reactions and improves wound healing

🍇 Supports weight loss (scientific studies show that flavonoids like quercetin, can help control fat mass by inhibiting fat cell formation, reducing fat storage in adipocytes, while stimulating the process of fat burning)

🍇 Enables full action of vitamin C

🍇 Effective for arthritis - helps stabilise collagen levels, which are responsible for healthy joints

🍇 Reduces LDL levels in the blood and helps reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke

🍇 Promising research has shown that quercetin may be an extremely important factor helping to inhibit the growth of cancer cells. It appears that quercetin delivered in high doses can act as a pro-oxidant to induce apoptosis, which eliminates cancer cells

P R E C A U T I O N S :

Care must be taken, because supplementation with high doses of quercetin increases the risk of side effects, especially in people taking antibiotics or antihistamines. High use of quercetin, especially in combination with other antihistamines, can lead to cardiac arrhythmias and also cause a sharp rise in blood pressure. In addition, quercetin may also reduce the absorption and maximum plasma concentration of antibiotics. Please stick to the recommended doses.
