Quercetin is recommended to offer cardiometabolic, cellular, and immune support for your pet. Quercetin is included in a class of water-soluble plant pigments known as bioflavonoids. The product is derived from Fava d’anta tree (Dimorphandra mollis) pods and cat’s claw (Uncaria tormentosa) leaves, and is one of the most bioactive flavonoids. It is vegan, hypoallergenic, and Certified Gluten-Free.
Quercetin aids healthy mast cell function by offering immune support. An in vitro study conducted on neutrophils (a type of white blood cell) found that the release of beta-glucuronidase and lysozyme (enzymes important in immune response) were mediated by Quercetin. Arachidonic acid (active in the process of inflammation) release from cell membranes was substantially moderated.
Quercetin provides antioxidant support by promoting cardiovascular health through the protection of lipids from oxidation and supporting capillary health by improving their integrity and strength. Some studies suggest that the product supports healthy vision through the mediation of sorbitol production.
