Solgar Quercetin Complex provides high quality quercetin extract with citrus bioflavonoids to quench inflammation.
Quercetin has demonstrated significant anti-inflammatory activity because of direct inhibition of several initial processes of inflammation. For example, it inhibits both the manufacture and release of histamine and other allergic/inflammatory mediators. In addition, it exerts potent antioxidant activity and vitamin C-sparing action. Quercetin may have positive effects in combating or helping to prevent prostatitis, heart disease, cataracts, allergies including pet dander and hayfever, inflammatory and respiratory diseases such as bronchitis.
Foods rich in quercetin include apples, black & green tea, onions (higher concentrations of quercetin occur in the outermost rings, raspberries, red wine, red grapes, citrus fruits, broccoli & other leafy green vegetables, and cherries. Excessive intestinal permeability allows for incompletely digested foods, often leading to food allergy reactions and tissue inflammation, which in turn could lead to even more permeable intestinal lining. Quercetin addresses this concern due to its anti-inflammatory and allergic response.
