What is Quercetin?
Quercetin is a plant flavonoid which is a natural pigment found in many fruits, vegetables and pulses. Quercetin is the most abundant flavonoid in our diet and, on average, we consume 10-100mg of the pigment daily. The name of this flavonoid derives from the word quercetum, meaning 'oak forest'. Flavonoids were only discovered in the 1930s and ongoing research has taken place ever since to determine their full health benefits.
Benefits of Quercetin
Quercetin contains antioxidative properties to fight free radicals which can damage DNA, protein and lipids. There is also some evidence to suggest that Quercetin may provide anti-inflammatory properties, a characteristic that is particularly popular amongst athletes.
