Reducing inflammation with supplements: Quercetin

Previously we have discussed the value of Tumeric in reducing inflammation and today we will consider Quercetin.
Like turmeric, it is a good anti-inflammatory, but works in a different way. Apparently this is why they can and should be used together to be even more effective in fighting inflammation.

What is Quercetin and where can we find it? 
It is a flavonoid, or plant pigment, found in a number of fruits and vegetables and other foods including green tea, onions, apples, berries and buckwheat. It is both an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory.

What does Quercetin treat?
Quercetin is used for treating conditions of the heart and blood vessels including “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), high cholesterol, heart disease, and circulation problems. It is also used for diabetes, cataracts, hay fever, peptic ulcer,schizophrenia, inflammation, asthma, gout, viral infections, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), preventing cancer, and for treating chronic infections of the prostate. Quercetin is also used to increase endurance and improve athletic performance.

Safety of Quercetin
Quercetin is POSSIBLY SAFE for most people when taken by mouth short-term. Quercetin has been safely used in amounts up to 500 mg twice daily for 12 weeks. It is not known if longer-term use or larger amounts are safe.*
