Sally T. Quercetin Immune Support
Benefits of Quercetin
Let’s look at the benefits of quercetin. These are strange times with our bodies being exposed to all sorts of unknown bacteria and viruses that can sometimes be very dangerous to our health or even life threatening.
Sally T. Quercetin Immune Support is a response to the need to optimize our immune system and lowering inflammation throughout the body. In so doing, it gives the body the best chance to ward off these pathogens.
The active ingredients in Sally T. Quercetin Immune Support have been chosen with specific functions in mind:
Quercetin contains numerous polyphenolic compounds that are found in various natural sources such as onions, red grapes, honey, citrus fruits, and red wine. One of the benefits of quercetin is that it has unique biological properties that may improve mental and or physical performance and reduce infection risk.
These properties form the basis for potential benefits of quercetin to overall health and disease resistance, including:
- psychostimulant activities
- the ability to inhibit lipid degeneration, platelet clumping and capillary permeability
- to stimulate mitochondrial biogenesis.
Biogenesis is the ability of the mitochondria to replicate themselves and increase in number in the cell. Mitochondria are the energy producing organelles in all living cells and the more there are present, the more energy will be available.
Another one of the benefits of quercetin is that it can bind with zinc ions and act as a zinc ionophore. These are specific ions that facilitate the transportation of Zinc across cell membranes. By being able to penetrate cell walls more easily pathogens (destructive elements) can be more efficiently destroyed. Quercetin could have powerful antiviral activity against many RNA viruses.
Zinc is an essential mineral that is an integral part of our immune system. It is naturally present in some foods, and available as a dietary supplement in various forms. Zinc supports a healthy immune response, helps wounds to heal, lowers overall inflammation, and supports normal growth. It is involved in numerous aspects of cellular metabolism. Zinc deficiency or inadequacy leads to increased susceptibility to a variety of pathogens and diseases. Low levels of Zinc in the body can result in impaired taste and smell. These symptoms are often the result of a viral infection.
Rutin, which is also known as Vitamin P and rutoside, is a bioflavonoid that’s found in certain foods, including apples, figs, most citrus fruits, buckwheat, and green tea. Rule of thumb, the more colour a fruit or vegetable has, the richer in bioflavonoids it is. Like all flavonoids, rutin has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. It may be used to strengthen blood vessels, improve blood circulation, lower cholesterol, and relieve arthritis symptoms. Another aspect of the function of bioflavonoids is to regulate cell signalling i.e., the communication between cells, vital for the sustaining of life.
Another important function of bioflavonoids is to help maximize the benefits of Vitamin C by inhibiting its breakdown in the body.
Vitamin C helps to make Quercetin more bioavailable to the body and protect it from oxidation. It also has well documented immune supporting properties and is widely used as an immune booster.
Papain was included in this formula as it too may increase the absorption of Quercetin.
