Quercetin

Quercetin

Quercetin is a natural polyphenolic antioxidant flavonoid found in many plants. It plays an important role in the inhibition of enzymes involved in free radical production and can potentially be used for the prevention and alleviation of conditions that are associated with oxidative stress. The Company has discovered that certain combinations of Quercetin, vitamins and other nutritional compounds can greatly increase Quercetin absorption and levels in the blood and assist in making Quercetin and the added ingredients more effective in promoting health and performance. The Company’s patented QB3C™ formulation-platform promotes better absorption of Quercetin in plasma with a longer half-life and has been extensively tested in randomized clinical trials.

“Quercetin exerts strong anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory, anti-pathogenic, and immune regulatory effects in vitro and in animal-based studies. Epidemiological data indicates reduced rates of cardiovascular disease and various types of cancer in groups self-selecting diets high in Quercetin. Several recent supplementation studies in athletes have focused on Quercetin’s potential influences as a countermeasure to post-exercise inflammation, oxidative stress, and immune dysfunction, in improving endurance performance, and in reducing illness rates following periods of physiologic stress.”
