Let food be your medicine
Benefits derive from the antioxidant activity of quercetin, especially when it combines with another antioxidant, vitamin C, to bolster the body's immune defences and provides a way (in addition to fibre) to protect against cancer. It also helps prevent the free radical damage to LDL cholesterol that promotes heart disease.
Quercetin also helps the body defend itself against harmful micro-organisms and can improve the tissue health of the intestinal wall which can help when there is an overgrowth of the Helicobacter pylori bacteria in the intestines.
Quercetin is known for its iron-chelating and iron-stabilising properties and has powerful antibacterial properties against the Escherichia coli.bacteria.
Quercetin has also shown in studies to be a powerful antiviral substance against herpes, influenza, mengo, polio, pseudorabies and rabies viruses.
