Fights Inflammation and Allergies

From Sneezing to Cell Damage
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
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.

An Antioxidant Flavonoid
Free radicals are byproducts of metabolism that disrupt the integrity of other molecules by stripping their electrons. Antioxidants are molecules that prevent free radicals from attacking nearby molecules, such as mitochondria, membranes, and DNA. There are many classes of dietary antioxidants, and flavonoids are one of them.

Common sources of flavonoids are vegetables, fruits, and beverages such as wine and teas. Of the many flavonoid powerhouses, Quercetin is a major player. As the most widely consumed flavonoid in the diet, quercetin is an important factor for human health. It has been widely used by Russians and Europeans to treat a variety of ailments.

Mechanism of Action

Pain and Inflammation
decreases the production of the inflammatory mediators by inhibiting key enzymes called cyclooxygenases and lipoxygenase. These enzymes form proinflammatory eicosanoids, which are cellular signals that stimulate inflammatory reactions. The mechanism is similar to that of aspirin and indomethacin. Mediators such as histamine, bradykinin and PGE2 all potentiate pain through sensitization of afferent nerve endings (the nerves that transmit impulses to the CNS and brain). Basically, these inflammatory mediators cause the body's pain receptors to become more sensitive. Quercetin, however, prevents the formation of those inflammatory mediators, thereby blocking the pain and other symptoms associated with inflammation.

counters allergic reactions by inhibiting enzymes responsible for the production of inflammatory mediators. Also, Quercetin inhibits histamine release by stabilizing basophils and mast cells. Histamine is a signaling molecule that is responsible for many of the symptoms of allergies. Quercetin is widely used by those who suffer from constant allergies (such as dust) and seasonal allergies (such as hay fever).

Cardiovascular Health
A longitudinal investigation of risk factors for chronic diseases in elderly men revealed that high intakes of quercetin and other flavonoids predicted lower mortality rates and incidences of heart attack (myocardial infarction). Researchers in the Netherlands believe that it is possible that quercetin and other flavonoids reduce risk of heart disease by lowering the formation of plaque-building substances, specifically oxidized low density lipoprotein (LDL).

Diabetic Complications
Many of the complications associated with diabetes, such as glaucoma, cataracts, and neuropathy, are caused by the sorbitol pathway, a process through which high levels of glucose are converted to sorbitol and fructose via the enzyme aldose reductase. In experimental animals, inhibitors of aldose reductase reduced the kidney and neurological symptoms that increase with diabetes. Quercetin is an established aldose reductase inhibitor, giving it potential for helping with diabetic complications.

  1. Quercetin Review
    4 5

    Quercetin is a flavonoid in some fruits, vegetables, and teas. It is considered healthy, however how effective it is has yet to be conclusively shown. It does appear that it might help treat cancer and heart disease, but the current data is limited.

    Quercetin might be part of the reason behind a study finding tea drinkers in the Netherlands to have a lower risk of heart disease. It has also been studied as an antioxidant that might help treat cancer and reduce resistance to drugs. Another study suggests it might block male hormones that cause prostate cancer.

    There are several possible benefits of quercetin, although there is little or no clinical date to prove or disprove most. These possible benefits include it being a potent antioxidant, helping reduce bad cholesterol, lowering the risk of heart disease, improving lung function, reducing risk of respiratory problems, treating allergies, and preventing heart disease and cancer.

    Since the studies are minimal at this point, it might be best to wait before using it, as there what dosage is safe and effective has not yet been studied. The long term effects of using quercetin is also unknown.

    Since the supplement industry is not regulated, quercetin supplements can vary in concentration and quality and thus effectiveness.
