Quercetin may react with calcium channel blockers, estradiol, and immune-suppressive drugs.
Quercetin has been shown to be one of the most bioactive flavonoids (plant pigments). Research suggests a supportive role for cellular, immune and cardiometabolic health.
Derived from Fava d’anta tree (Dimorphandra mollis) pods and cat’s claw (Uncaria tormentosa) leaves.
Quercetin aids healthy mast cell function by offering immune support. An in vitro study conducted on neutrophils (a type of white blood cell) found that the release of beta-glucuronidase and lysozyme (enzymes important in immune response) were mediated by its use. Arachidonic acid (active in the process of inflammation) release from cell membranes was substantially moderated.
Quercetin provides antioxidant support by promoting cardiovascular health through the protection of lipids from oxidation and supporting capillary health by improving their integrity and strength. Some studies suggest it supports healthy vision through the mediation of sorbitol production.
Sold in 250 mg capsules for cats.
