About Quercetin Phytosome
An antioxidant flavonoid that supports balanced immune function, inflammatory response, and histamine release*
Quercetin is a flavonoid found in many plant-based foods – onions having the highest amount. Other fruits and vegetables that contain significant amounts of quercetin include apples, berries, grapes, and green leafy vegetables. As ubiquitous as quercetin is in nature, it also has wide-ranging benefits in the body. One important actions is to strengthen mast cell membranes (a type of white blood cell), which down-regulates the release of histamine, providing nutritional support for skin sensitivity (like hives) and seasonal allergies.* Quercetin also has important antioxidant activities and supports balanced immune function and inflammatory response – all of which provide benefit for respiratory health, athletic performance, healthy aging, and more.*
New research is emerging that supports quercetin’s role in healthy aging.* Quercetin is the first natural substance to be identified as a senolytic – a substance that clears worn out, dysfunctional cells (senescent cells) from the body.*Senescent cells have been identified as a major contributor to the aging process.
Quercetin is a type of plant compound called a flavonoid (a fancy name for a plant pigment) that contributes to the natural, vibrant colors of fruits and vegetables like apples, onions, berries, and tea. Flavonoids function as antioxidants, seeking out damaging free radicals and neutralizing them.* Free radicals are caused by the daily oxidative stress placed on our bodies, and they are linked to cellular damage, accelerated aging, and chronic health conditions.
Thorne’s Quercetin Phytosome offers the antioxidant benefits of a flavonoid, as well as its immune-supporting properties and the ability to support a healthy inflammatory response, which provides a range of health-promoting benefits.*
As a natural compound, quercetin is typically characterized by poor absorption into the bloodstream, which is why the quercetin used in Thorne products is provided as a quercetin phytosome. A quercetin phytosome complex enhances the benefits of quercetin by utilizing phytosome technology to optimize the nutrient’s bioavailability. Thorne’s Quercetin Phytosome is up to 20 times more bioavailable than quercetin extract alone, for maximum benefit from a smaller amount.*
Who can benefit from Quercetin Phytosome
- Anyone looking to support healthy immune function*
- Individuals seeking support from the effects of seasonal allergies or hives*
- Those looking to promote recovery and a healthy inflammatory response in the respiratory tract*
- Biohackers looking to optimize sirtuin function and decrease senescent cells*
- Anyone wanting to support a healthy aging process*
Immune and Allergy Support
Quercetin Phytosome offers a range of benefits for immune health – from general immune support, to nutritional support for seasonal allergy sufferers, to maintenance of a healthy respiratory tract.* Quercetin plays a crucial role in moderating immune function through several different actions, such as:
- Supporting various types of immune cells that are necessary for an optimized immune response*
- Benefiting allergy sufferers by helping to regulate histamine release*
- Helping to support a normal inflammatory response, particularly in the respiratory tract*
Unique Benefits for Healthy Aging
Cutting-edge research is placing quercetin in the spotlight for healthy aging because of new research that shows quercetin helps reduce cellular senescence.* Senescent cells are malfunctioning cells that have stopped dividing but do not die and remain in the body. Environmental factors, along with regular aging, causes a buildup of senescent cells, which can be associated with biological aging and age-related disorders.
What makes Quercetin Phytosome a healthy aging superstar:
- Quercetin is one of only two nutrients that have been studied to reduce cellular senescence*
- Quercetin up-regulates sirtuins (key regulators of cellular health) associated with improved weight-related metabolic factors at the cellular level*
- The trio of antioxidant, sirtuin, and senescence support helps optimize healthy cellular aging*
Quercetin as described below in detail is a plant-based flavonol from the flavonoid group of polyphenols found in many fruits and vegetables. There has been much published recently about quercetin, however many other natural compounds have the same benefits as quercetin, but from a different mechanism and with different intrinsic health benefits specific to each. For example, Elderberry, Turmeric / Curcumin & Quercetin are all natural anti-Inflammatory compounds which reduce chronic inflammation (oxidative stress) thus improving cellular function and optimizing the immune system. However, these three compounds also have intrinsic properties such as being anti-viral in nature, as opposed to something like beet root powder which is not intrinsically anti-viral, however, has the anti-inflammatory and nitric oxide benefits, as well as being high in iron.
