Quercetin is an effective antioxidant that helps to reduce oxidative stress from free radical scavengers, protecting the cells of our body from oxidation, rapid aging.
In our time, Quercetin is a powerful antiviral. It inhibits viruses from breaking through any weak cell walls in our body, which (the virus) then uses our own cells’ mechanism to reproduce and proliferate. The presence of Quercetin in our cells also inhibits viruses from reproducing.
It has an immuno-protective and modulative effect; it increases the production of killer T-cells and macrophages. Quercetin is a potent HIV protease inhibitor and for many other viruses.
Vit C is well known for its effectiveness in treating cold and flu symptoms. Vit C is a preventative for many illnesses where the lack of Vit C in the body could cause.
Quercetin and Vit C have a positive synergistic effect where the ascorbate helps recycle Quercetin and maintain Quercetin in its anti-oxidation property.
