Oct 18, 2021

What is quercetin powder?

Quercetin is a widely distributed bioflavonoid in the plant community. it has the characteristics of inhibiting tumors, fighting free radicals, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergy, lowering blood pressure, lowering blood lipids, preventing diabetes complications, and immunomodulation, which is of great significance to the treatment and prevention of cancer, aging, and cardiovascular disease.

The food source:

The best dietary source is onions. Eating a large onion, raw or cooked, is enough to significantly increase its level in the body in a matter of hours. Apples also contain it, but the body does not absorb it effectively. We can absorb about half of from onions, but only 30% of the apples. If you want quercetin to help prevent disease, The amount of intake required is quite high, so its supplement is required.

Quercetin powder and pulmonary nodule

A study by Maastricht University School of Medicine in the United States conducted a double-blind intervention experiment on two groups of pulmonary nodules who were close in age and gender, no smoke, they had never been treated with the disease, found that:

its supplements improve the body's antioxidant defenses, indicating an increase in the total antioxidant capacity of plasma. In addition, its supplements reduce the markers of oxidative stress and inflammation in the blood of patients with nodule disease. the higher the level of oxidative stress and inflammatory markers, which is more obvious.

Quercetin is associated with Chronic pulmonary obstruction

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial conducted by the University of Michigan's Lung Disease Research Institute divided chronic pulmonary obstruction patients with a history of 10 years or more into a placebo group, a 500 mg group, a 1000 mg group, and a 2000 mg group for a six-month observational study, which showed that:

No serious adverse events or significant adverse changes in lung function occurred in any group. its supplements can reduce the severity of disease in subjects with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It is also recommended that patients use its supplements as the first step in the treatment.

quercetin powder for pulmonary nodule

For cancer:

It has shown promise in the treatment and prevention of cancer. it is valuable in treating leukemia, lung, breast, colon, and ovarian cancer.

Several studies in mice have shown that a mixture of curcumin and quercetin powder protects mice from lung cancer.

Another study of lung cancer showed that preventive treatment of curcumin and quercetin induced

apoptosis of lung tumors by regulating p53.

Usage usage:

Taking 300-600 mg daily is the standard for the basic prevention of heart disease and cancer. When needed, you can take an additional dose, not more than 600mg at a time and no more than 1200mg at a time throughout the day.

Choose and purchase:

Quercetin-type products, conditional can choose quality control relatively strict European and American products. Product ingredients are best selected as Quercetin dihydrate products, as dihydratolspirin is a more stringent name for the medicinal ingredients. Daily health care, disease prevention, choose a unilateral its products. For lung disease, long-term smoking, cancer rehabilitation, or middle-aged and elderly, you can choose a compound product of quercetin-curcumin.
