Quercetin is a bioflavonoid. It’s a plant based product or chemical that has antiinflammatory properties on that enzyme. Quercetin can have a very nice antiinflammatory effect if you’re taking it prophylactically. There’s actually research studies that show quercetin has antiviral properties,and that quercetin actually can reduce the risk of developing upper airway diseases, upper respiratory tract infections and things of that nature.
Quercetin also blocks the cycle oxygen ACE enzyme. That’s why a lot of scientists are focusing in on quercitin as a potential. I wouldn’t recommend quercitin to block the COX enzyme to reduce a fever because it doesn’t work quite that way. Quercitin is not going to have that acute fever reducing capacity, but it is going to have that that overall reduction in overall inflammatory capacity. Then why do we want to know about this as it relates to any virus?
Well, the research shows that quercetin through its effect on inflammation, can inhibit viral replication in multiple different areas. It’s been very, very powerful as a nutrient in regards to immune function. So a lot of you have asked me, because vitamin C is very scarce right now, what can I use if I want to support my immune system right now? What can I use instead of vitamin C? I just can’t find any vitamin C. Well, one of the things you can use is quercetin. Quercetin is very, very good at a lot of the things that vitamin C is good at. And because of its antiviral properties, it’s actually been studied to be antiviral against the rhinovirus, against influenza, against the hepatitis virus, against Ebola virus. So there are a number of research studies that show that course it’s in has very potent antiviral effects.
