Today I’m going to quickly talk about Quercetin:
- What is it and the benefits?
- How well does it work, especially for a healthy inflammatory response
- Correct dosages to be used
- Warnings – why most quercetin doesn’t work or is a rip-off
- The best and correct form and proper use for maximum benefits
What Is Quercetin?
Quercetin is a bioflavonoid. More specifically, it’s a pigment found naturally in:
Quercetin is a potent antioxidant that helps fight free radicals, which are linked to numerous chronic health problems.
Now, I personally use Quercetin because it helps boost the immune system, but primarily – because it’s great at supporting healthy inflammatory response, which is linked to pain and all the health problems I just mentioned.
Quercetin & Inflammation – Does It Work?
And that’s what I want to focus on today – Inflammation, which I believe is a major cause of aging.
As with all studies, the results are mixed. Some say quercetin works and others say it doesn’t.
So, I needed to dig much deeper into this.
When using the correct dosage and form, especially when combined with other key ingredients – Quercetin works great for supporting healthy inflammatory responses.
In just 8 weeks, in human clinical studies – it greatly reduces morning stiffness and pain. As well as pain in the hands, shoulders, back, knees, and elbows.
One of the primary ways quercetin works is by blocking important inflammatory substances and pathways (including COX-2 and CRP), similar to NSAID drugs like Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Naproxen, etc. (but without the negatives).
It also helps block the production of prostaglandins, one of the key mediators of the inflammatory response.
Lastly, it works because it also reduces inflammatory markers tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNFα) and interleukin-6 (IL-6)
WARNINGS: The REAL Problem With Quercetin
As stated earlier, when quercetin didn’t work in clinical studies, it was because of the incorrect dose and form, which dramatically REDUCED absorption.
Remember, it’s not what you ingest – it’s what you absorb.
Like money – it’s not how much your income is, but what you keep after all your expenses and taxes.
50X More Bioavailable
Now, the good news is that scientists have discovered that quercetin is utilized in a plant-derived phytosome delivery system, it’s much more absorbable.
In fact, it’s 50x more absorbable than the standard quercetin found in most supplements.
And the ideal dose of the phytosome version is 200 mg daily, versus over 2,500 mg daily of the regular quercetin.
So you’ll actually save more money.
Take It With Other Ingredients
Additionally, when taking Quercetin with other specific ingredients, the anti-inflammatory response is dramatically better.
The top ingredients research recommends are:
- Trans-Resveratrol (50% Extract)
- Ginger Extract
- Curcumin Extract
- Pycnogenol® (pine bark extract; 97% Extract; 65% procyanidins)
- AprèsFlex® Boswellia Serrata (65% extract)
What’s The Best, Easiest & Safest Option?
So now you might be thinking, “I don’t want to take 5, 10 or 20 pills per day, buy a bunch of bottles and herbs”… And I don’t blame you – who’s got the time or money?
Fortunately, there’s a natural option called Inflame & Pain Relief, which contains all the above key ingredients, at the correct scientifically
The feedback for it has been amazing. It’s a doctor-formulated option that has been around for years, so you know it works.
It’s actually something I use myself and so do my own parents.
