Q is for Quercetin
What the heck is quercetin?
Quercetin belongs to a group of plant pigments called flavonoids that give many fruits, flowers, and vegetables their color.
such as quercetin, are antioxidants — they scavenge damaging particles
in the body known as free radicals, which damage cell membranes, tamper
with DNA, and even cause cell death. They also help keep LDL ("bad") cholesterol from being damaged,
which scientists think may contribute to heart disease. In test tubes,
quercetin has strong antioxidant properties, but researchers aren't sure
whether taking quercetin (and many other antioxidants) has the same
effects inside the body.
Quercetin is sometimes promoted to help prevent or treat different types
of cancer. It has also been promoted to help with the symptoms of
chronic prostatitis (swelling of the prostate gland) and to relieve some
of the neurologic complications of diabetes.
Quercetin acts like an antihistamine and
an anti-inflammatory, and may help protect against heart disease and
cancer. Quercetin can also help stabilize the cells that release
histamine in the body and thereby have an anti-inflammatory effect.
