Quercetin is one of the most active of flavonoids and is commonly found in many vegetables and fruits such as apples, citrus fruits, berries, grapes, onions, cauliflower and cabbage. It is known to directly inhibit inflammatory processes including the manufacture and release of histamines. Quercetin augments the effectiveness and activity of vitamin C in the body. As a valuable antioxidant quercetin is particularly helpful for allergies, hay fever and asthma.
Recent research has shown that Quercetin can improve cardiovascular health as it helps to combat free radicals which cause damage to cells in the body, including the heart. Like many other flavonoids, quercetin prevents the oxidation of LDL or “bad cholesterol.”
