Supports cellular, cardiometabolic and immune health
- Immune Support: Quercetin has strong antioxidant activity and has been shown to support immune health by mediating the release of inflammatory compounds including leukotrienes and prostaglandins. Quercetin is known for its ability to stabilize mast cells, diminishing the release of histamine, the compound known to cause hypersensitivity reactions during seasonal changes.
- Antioxidant Support: Quercetin promotes cardiovascular health by protecting lipids from oxidation and supporting the health of capillaries by enhancing their strength and integrity. Studies suggest that quercetin may also promote healthy vision by mediating sorbitol production.
- Cellular Support: An animal study indicated that quercetin supported prostate cell health by moderating receptor function at the transcription level. Additionally, in vitro studies have reported that this powerful flavonoid may be supportive of colon and breast cell health.
