KEY BENEFITS OF QUERCETIN

      • Supports cellular health
      • Supports brain function

      • Supports antioxidant defenses


ABOUT QUERCETIN

Quercetin is a pigment found in yellow plants.
 
Due to its identification in oak trees, its name is derived from the Latin word quercetum, which means oak forest.
 
Quercetin belongs to the flavonol group of polyphenols. Polyphenols play an important role in plants.
 
In addition to its role in protecting plants from pests and UV rays from the sun, it also plays a role in protecting plants against environmental stress. Consequently, they are typically found in parts of the plant that are more exposed to the outside world.
 
The red onion is a good source of quercetin. However, the quercetin in red onions is not evenly distributed; it concentrates in the outer skins (which are typically discarded when onions are peeled before eating) and the root part.
 
Quercetin may be best obtained from capers.
