Quercetin – King of Bioflavonoids
Quercetin is a powerful antioxidant and can be naturally found in many superfoods. In recent years, scientists have just begun to recognize the benefits of quercetin. Studies show that quercetin can help fight free radicals, reduce inflammation, and help boost the immune system.
The biosynthesis of phytochemicals, like flavonoids, is a defensive response of plants to their environment. Flavonoids often function as protection from ultraviolet sunlight and lipid peroxidation.
In this presentation, we will discuss the importance of the flavanol Quercetin. We will discuss why its poor absorption requires a new technology for its delivery.
Clinicians will come away understanding:
- Quercetin’s role in health and disease
- The role of Quercetin
- as an Antioxidant
- as an Anti-inflammatory
- in Immune Modulation and
- as an Antiviral
