Solgar Quercetin Complex provides high-quality quercetin extract with citrus bioflavonoids to quench inflammation. Quercetin Complex with Ester C ® Plus is exclusively formulated by Solgar and combines the important bioflavonoid Quercetin with Ester-C ® and Bromelain.
Quercetin is a non-citrus bioflavonoid that works in synergy with Vitamin C. Bioflavonoids are naturally present in fruit, vegetables and herbs, and are a class of powerful phytochemicals. They help maximise the benefits of Vitamin C as they prevent the breakdown of this immune supporting vitamin in the body. Exclusive to Solgar, Quercetin complex is a proprietary formula and contains additional natural plant bioflavonoids, powerful antioxidants that naturally accompany Vitamin C in fruits and vegetables. This complex is a unique formula that utilises a premium patented, non-acidic, form of vitamin C, Ester C ® known as "The Better Vitamin C". The highly absorbable Ester C ® is also gentle on the stomach compared to traditional forms of vitamin C, which is less likely to irritate and making this product a good choice for everyone.
Quercetin has demonstrated significant anti-inflammatory activity because of direct inhibition of several initial processes of inflammation. For example, it inhibits both the manufacture and release of histamine and other allergic/inflammatory mediators. In addition, it exerts potent antioxidant activity and vitamin C-sparing action. Quercetin may have positive effects in combating or helping to prevent prostatitis, heart disease, cataracts, allergies including pet dander and hayfever, inflammatory and respiratory diseases such as bronchitis.
Foods rich in quercetin include apples, black & green tea, onions (higher concentrations of quercetin occur in the outermost rings, raspberries, red wine, red grapes, citrus fruits, broccoli & other leafy green vegetables, and cherries. Excessive intestinal permeability allows for incompletely digested foods, often leading to food allergy reactions and tissue inflammation, which in turn could lead to even more permeable intestinal lining. Quercetin addresses this concern due to its anti-inflammatory and allergic response.
Once taken Ester C ® is also retained by your immune cells for longer than regular Vitamin C, giving you superior immune support. Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that helps fight free radicals and to maintain a healthy immune system. It has multiple benefits which support optimal health, ranging from promoting healthy skin, reducing tiredness and fatigue, and supporting healthy bones and teeth.
In addition, the complex includes Bromelain and natural bioflavanoids. Bromelain has been added to this specialised formula. Bromelain is a digestive enzyme found naturally in pineapples.
