Quercetin 500 features 500 mg of quercetin in one capsule to promote a healthy immune response, support cardiovascular and endothelial health, and support antioxidant status.
Why Quercetin 500?
- Quercetin is one of the most studied dietary flavonoids and is often found in a variety of plant foods including fruits, vegetables, and tea. Although a lot of foods contain quercetin, the daily intake of quercetin for a person following a typical Western diet is estimated to be between 0 and 30 mg per day. However, research shows that the immune and cardiovascular benefits of quercetin are reached at supplemental intakes of 500 mg to 1,000 mg per day.
- Quercetin plays multiple roles in supporting cardiovascular health. It helps maintain healthy blood pressure levels already in the normal range and helps promote the expression and activity of paraoxonase (PON), a HDL-associated protein with antioxidant properties. Quercetin also encourages healthy endothelial function.
- Quercetin supports a healthy immune response. Preclinical studies demonstrate that quercetin affects immunity by acting on leukocytes and other immune cells.
- Free radical scavenging antioxidants like quercetin protect cells from harmful free radicals and inhibit oxidative stress.
