What is Resveratrol & Quercetin?
Resveratrol is an important ingredient found in cocoa, red grapes and dark berries
such as lingonberries, blueberries, mulberries and bilberries. It is a polyphonic
bioflavonoid antioxidant that is produced by these plants as a response to stress,
injury and fungal infection.
Why do the French eat more fat, sugar, rich foods, wine and have less heart health
issues? It’s called the French Paradox and it is believed to be due to a phytonutrient
called Resveratrol, found naturally in wine, cocoa and other berries. It is a powerful
antioxidant that regenerates the body at the cellular level.
Quercetin is one of the most biologically active flavonoids found in many fruits and
vegetables. Flavonoids are phytonutrients that are responsible for providing rich
colours, such as the blue in blueberries and the red in raspberries. Current research
is revealing that quercetin is a very potent flavonoid with powerful antioxidant
properties that give it both preventative and therapeutic value in many areas of
health. Here are three of the most promising areas of research on quercetin:
Benefits of Reveratrol & Quercetin
Flavonoids, including quercetin, are important anti-inflammatories because they act
as antioxidants, which mean they literally fight the natural process of “oxidation”
that takes place over time as we age. Quercetin can help stop damaging particles in
the body known as free radicals, which negatively impact how cells work — including
damaging cell membranes, changing the way DNA works, increasing cell mutations
and causing healthy cells to die.
Quercetin is a natural antihistamine and an anti-inflammatory, making it effective
for naturally lowering the effects of season and food allergies, plus asthma and skin
reactions. Histamines are chemicals that are released when the immune system
detects an allergy or sensitivity, and they are what account for uncomfortable
symptoms we face whenever the body has an allergic reaction.
Supports Heart Health
Because of its ability to lower inflammation and oxidative stress, quercetin seems
to be beneficial for people with heart and blood vessel-related disorders.
Helps Fight Pain
Taking Resveratrol & Quercetin supplements can help lower pain associated with
autoimmune conditions, such as arthritis, as well as infections, including those of
the prostate and respiratory tract. That’s because quercetin reduces inflammatory
A Boston University School of Medicine study published in the Journal of Biological
Regulators and Homeostatic Agents shows a link between a nutrient-dense diet rich
in quercetin plus other antioxidants and a lowered risk of cancer. Quercetin seems
to have potential chemo-preventive activity and might have a unique antiproliferative
effect on cancerous cells, making it an effective addition to any natural cancer
Resveratrol works by modifying inflammation in the body. It limits the body’s ability
to produce sphingosine kinase and phospholipase D, two molecules known to trigger
inflammation. Although the body naturally produces inflammation to counter bacteria
and viruses as part of the immune system, a state of chronic or constant inflammation
is not a healthy state to live with.
Lower Insuline Level
Resveratrol has been found to lower insulin levels, which is key to staying young and
fighting disease. In trials, Sirtris Pharmaceuticals found that those with diabetes who
took resveratrol had lower glucose and insulin levels, making it a powerful aid to a
