It’s a strange sounding word (it’s pronounced kwur-si-tin), but it’s a wonderful, naturally occurring compound that provides many health benefits in addition to allergy relief since Quercetin is a natural antihistamine, such as heart health, stronger immune system, pain relief, and even younger-looking skin.
Quercetin is one of the best-known flavonoids (a diverse group of plant chemicals) and is found in many Quercetin foods such as fruits, vegetables, leaves, and grains.1 Because it’s considered a plant pigment, Quercetin is prominently found in colored fruits and vegetables, especially those in red and orange pigmentation .2 The strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of Quercetin play a noticeable role in our health.
As an antioxidant, Quercetin helps stop cells from being damaged by free radicals (waste produced by cells), thus protecting the immune system; as an anti-inflammatory, Quercetin inhibits certain chemical pathways from generating uncomfortable or painful inflammation.
In your diet, Quercetin is most significantly found in onions, apples, citrus, kale, blueberries, and sweet potatoes, plus it can be found in green tea and red wine.
With Quercetin being a powerful flavonoid, there is a wide range of health benefits, including its ability to reduce inflammation, eliminate pain, protect against cardiovascular diseases, act as an anti-cancer, boost the immune system, reduce histamines, and decrease irritation of the skin.
Natural Antihistamine – Histamines are chemicals in your body that your immune system makes, and they help your body to get rid of an allergen. In order to get rid of the allergen, the histamines cause you to sneeze or cough, have watery eyes or a runny nose, and feel itchy because it wants those allergens out of your body. The abnormal release of histamines can negatively impact your respiratory system leading to multiple health complications, such as redness, irritation, and swelling. Being loaded with antihistamines, Quercetin can help with these respiratory problems. It influences intracellular enzymes and reduces excessive histamine excretion.
Helps Asthma – Quercetin functions as a bronchodilator (a drug that opens the airways of the lungs) and reduces the amount of inflammatory or allergic reaction chemicals in the body. Therefore, Quercetin can reduce the severity of asthma attacks that react to those chemicals, and also reduce various forms of congestion that are unrelated to asthma.
Cardiovascular Health – Studies have shown that the consumption of flavonoids, specifically Quercetin, promotes overall cardiovascular health. First, it encourages blood flow. Secondly, researchers have observed that Quercetin’s antioxidant action protects against LDL cholesterol (the “bad” cholesterol) oxidation, and this may be beneficial because oxidation causes LDL cholesterol to stick to artery walls. Too much LDL cholesterol could cause atherosclerosis, heart attacks, and strokes.
