Four Health Benefits of Quercetin
Flavonoids possess an incredible ability to enhance the body’s reaction to environmental and other biological challenges. Quercetin is consistently the most active of the flavonoids in experimental studies making it the best choice when the body is dealing with increased challenges.
1. Quercetin May Help Protect Our Cells
Quercetin literally can act as an “on switch” to promote some beneficial effects within cells such as promoting cellular repair while simultaneously acting as an “off switch” in helping cells protect themselves from damage or infection.
2. Quercetin May Have Potent Antioxidant Properties
Quercetin possesses significant antioxidant effects and enhances the body’s antioxidant system of enzymes to support the body during times of biological stress (immune activation, inflammation, and allergies).
3. Quercetin May Help Reduce Inflammation
Quercetin inhibits both the manufacture and release of compounds known as inflammatory mediators that aggravate the body’s attempt to balance inflammation.
4. Quercetin May Help Boost Immunity
Quercetin has special effects on immune system health and may help promote enhanced immunity to the respiratory tract. In fact, there has been a lot of attention on quercetin recently because of its effects on immune function as well as its ability to increase the intracellular level of ionic zinc. In its free ionic state, zinc inhibits an enzyme known as replicase that viruses use to replicate within human cells. Quercetin facilitates the transfer of ionic zinc into cells through channels known as ionophores.
The unique antioxidants in quercetin support blood vessel health. Our unique patent-pending technology creates a liquid micelle matrix that disperses the quercetin into tiny micro-droplets, resulting in a superior delivery system for enhanced absorption.
The dosage for the Natural Factors’ Quercetin LipoMicel Matrix™ is 250 to 500 mg per day. Each soft-gel capsule contains 250 mg of quercetin within the LipoMicel Matrix™. Preliminary absorption data indicate a 5 to 10-fold greater absorption for this advanced form over regular quercetin. This indicates that each capsule of Quercetin LipoMicel Matrix™ would have a bioequivalence of 1,250 to 2,500 to regular quercetin powder. If two capsules are taken daily that bioequivalence increases to 2,500 to 5,000 mg of regular quercetin.
