Quercetin is the flavone aglycone (non-sugar-bound) form of the polyphenolic flavonoid rutin. Quercetin is the major bioflavonoid in the human diet and an antioxidant for the maintenance of good health.
Quercetin belongs to the flavonoid class of antioxidants commonly found in apples, onions and citrus fruits. Its use has been widely established, particularly in Europe, for the treatment of a variety of ailments including allergy symptoms, diabetic complications and cardiovascular concerns, all thanks to its anti-inflammatory effects.
Although Quercetin’s main application is for those with allergy symptoms (such as itchy eyes, itchy throat, sneezing and nasal congestion), quercetin also promotes cardiovascular health due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. It reduces the oxidation of low density lipoproteins (LDL), promotes healthy blood pressure and blood clotting, enhances nitric oxide (NO) production, and reduces the risk of metabolic syndrome. Quercetin inhibits the production of inflammatory signaling molecules by a mechanism similar to that of aspirin. Quercetin also inhibits the release of histamine from certain immune cells, hence why it is widely used by those who suffer from constant allergies (such as dust) and seasonal allergies (such as hay fever). Quercetin can add a boost for anyone at risk or suffering from any cardiovascular condition, battling allergies or plagued with headaches. AOR’s Quercetin is also unique for allergy sufferers because it is citrus-free, unlike most quercetin products on the market.
Take 1 AOR Quercetin capsule twice daily with food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
