From Sneezing to Cell Damage
Quercetin is a dietary flavonoid with a variety of health benefits. It prevents oxidants from attacking nearby molecules. It alleviates allergies by stabilizing the membranes of certain immune cells to prevent them from releasing histamines. It also blocks enzymes that are responsible for producing inflammatory molecules that sensitize the body's pain receptors.
Heart Health and Diabetes
Quercetin is a beneficial factor in cardiovascular health. It has been shown to lower mortality rates and incidences of heart attack, possibly by decreasing the formation of plaque building substances like LDL cholesterol. It is also able to inhibit a main enzyme in the pathway that leads to complications associated with diabetes, such as glaucoma, cataracts, and neuropathy. AOR's Quercetin is derived from citrus-free sources and is formulated to take advantage of the health benefits offered by this flavonoid powerhouse.
