Having the ability to produce more mitochondria in muscles for energy production, endurance and healing.


It has more significant benefits when taken in conjunction with zinc.


Quercitin allows charged particles into the cell, charged particles such as zinc. Zinc, in its free form in our system, sits outside of our cells. Quercitin allows zinc to enter the cells; zinc attaches itself to toxins, viruses and other host particles, making them inert and thus preserving the health of our cells.


Quercetin plays an essential role in our immune system.

Quercetin is an ionophore, which binds to ions outside of cells. Ionophore is abundant in Tumeric (curcumin), in (EGCG) Epigallocatechin gallate, which is present in green tea, and smaller amounts in green vegetables.


Some foods contain quercetin itself but only in small amounts:




In this era of guarding ourselves against illnesses, quercetin can be a helpful defence.

dosage is 500mg twice a day to be taken on an empty stomach.
