What Is Quercetin And How Can I Benefit From Taking It?
Quercetin is a type of flavonoid which helps give color to fruit and vegetables. Foods that are naturally high in quercetin include citrus fruits, apples, onions, berries, grapes, and olives. There are three main actions that make flavonoids beneficial to the body: as an antioxidant, an anti-histamine, and an anti-inflammatory.
Flavonoids are natural antioxidants which scour the body for free radicals, neutralizing them, and limiting the damage they can do in the body. They also inhibit the cells that release histamine in the body, making flavonoids a natural anti-histamine. And finally they reduce the body’s inflammatory response, making them a natural anti-inflammatory. All of these actions mean that flavonoids such as quercetin can be helpful in managing a range of conditions from allergies to heart disease to arthritis.
LipoMicel quercetin is a patented delivery system where the quercetin is encapsulated in a liquid micelle matrix, or basically a group of fat cells, to make it more bioavailable than other forms of quercetin. Studies have shown that quercetin in a micelle matrix is absorbed through the cellular membranes significantly better than free quercetin, therefore making it more effective. Quercetin also helps other vitamins and minerals enter the cells, increasing their positive impact on the body.
Natural Factors LipoMicel Matrix disperses the quercetin into tiny micro-droplets, resulting in superior absorption into the bloodstream. It contains no preservatives, dairy, gluten, soy, or GMOs, making this a natural, highly effective way to deliver nutrient goodness to your cells.
