Quercetin: Benefits, Dosage, and Side Effects
Quercetin is a well-researched flavonoid (plant pigment) with powerful antioxidant properties. It has numerous functions including anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral activities.
The body can’t produce quercetin, making it an essential nutrient to consume through diet or supplements. It's also available in common herbal supplements such as ginkgo biloba and St. John’s wort.
Benefits of Quercetin
The primary benefits come from its antioxidant qualities, studies show. Free radicals in the body can cause chronic inflammation, which this supplement may help reduce and prevent.
Test-tube studies show it reduced inflammation in human cells (1). An even more extensive study was done with 50 women who took 500mg of quercetin over an 8-week period (2).
These women experienced much lessened early morning stiffness and pain, and after-activity pain.
There are a variety of other benefits quercetin may provide such as reduced allergy symptoms, potential anticancer effects, lowered risk of chronic brain disorders, and lower blood pressure.
These effects could be amplified when it is consumed with other select nutrients, or when taken as a supplement blend with specific ingredients.
