There is an increased interest among diverse consumer groups such as athletes, military and millennials for new plant derived flavonoids to enhance performance and improve health. Flavonoids possess wide spectrum of biological activities that might be able to influence processes which are disrupted in a disease. One of these novel rising stars in nutrition is called Quercetin, a high-profile flavonoid of the polyphenol group, extracted from different plant sources, mostly found in onions, grapes, berries, cherries, broccoli, teas and citrus fruits. Quercetin Benefits are broad!
The beneficial effects of flavonoids like Quercetin come from their ability to function as antioxidant inside your body, neutralizing free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that may cause cellular damage when their levels become too high. Damage caused by free radicals has been linked to numerous chronic conditions, including cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.
Based on several scientific research, Quercetin benefits are broad and may help you fight against the following conditions:
Allergies, asthma, hay fever and hives
In test tubes, quercetin prevents immune cells from releasing histamines, which are chemicals that cause allergic reactions. Researchers think that quercetin may help reduce symptoms of allergies, including runny nose, watery eyes, hives, and swelling of the face and lips.
Many studies suggest that Quercetin supplements may help reduce the risk of atherosclerosis, plaque buildup in arteries that can lead to heart attack or stroke. These nutrients appear to protect against the damage caused by LDL (bad) cholesterol and may help prevent death from heart disease.
Studies show that quercetin supplementation reduces blood pressure in people who have hypertension.
People with this condition have bladder pain similar to that from a bladder infection, and often experience an urgent need to urinate. In two studies, those who took a supplement containing quercetin appeared to have fewer symptoms.
One study found that people who took quercetin and an alcohol-free red wine extract (which contains quercetin) had less damage to LDL cholesterol. Another study found that quercetin reduced LDL concentrations in overweight subjects who were at high risk of heart disease.
Preliminary evidence indicates that quercetin might reduce symptoms of prostatitis, or inflammation of the prostate. One study found that men who took quercetin experienced fewer symptoms than men who took placebo.
Scientists have long considered quercetin, contained in fruits and vegetables, important in cancer prevention. People who eat more fruits and vegetables tend to have lower risk of certain types of cancer. Quercetin has been shown in studies to inhibit the growth of cancer cells from breast, colon, prostate, ovarian, endometrial, and lung tumors.
One of these studies found that frequent intake of quercetin was associated with lower lung cancer risk. The association was even stronger among subjects who smoked more than 20 cigarettes daily.
