QUERCITIN,what healing properties does it have?

In these troubled times, the world has begun to realize the importance of its health, therefore, it is looking for all kinds of herbal or natural remedies to prevent getting sick with the new virus.

There is a recipe circulating on the internet from a doctor from the USA, as if the substance quercitin would help the body in the fight against the coronavirus, in addition to the usual vitamins D3, C and the mineral Zinc.

Is it so?

Let's see what quercitin is and what benefits it brings to the body in more demanding periods of the disease or for its prevention.

From my detailed research, I found information such as, quercitin is a compound found in plants, fruits and vegetables, with an antioxidant, antiallergic and antihistaminic effect.

The main foods in which quercitin is found are:

- fruits rich in flavonoids: berries, apples, cherries, citrus fruits

-vegetables such as: broccoli, red onion, tomatoes

- plants: ginkgo biloba

"It is important to mention that, according to the latest studies, quercitin can contribute to blocking the enzymatic activity of 3CLpro and can thus fight against Sars-CoV-2. Quercitin can be considered a good candidate for the optimization and development of an effective remedy against COVID-19. This study is being carried out by the Instituto Aragonés de Ciencias de la Salud (IACS) in Zaragoza.” (Source

Unfortunately, the human body cannot produce this substance and for this reason it is necessary to supplement it through food or by administering natural supplements.

Quercitin can help the body fight inflammation in the body, balances allergic manifestations, maintains normal blood pressure, reduces oxidative stress (it is a stronger antioxidant than vitamin C), can fight bacteria that can cause infections in the skin, in the tract digestive and respiratory, as well as urinary.

For a balanced life, it is important, first of all, to eat healthy, exercise and hydrate properly.

For the administration of any medicine or supplement, it is necessary to inform the doctor!

Health, better than all!
