Many people have heard of vitamin C and its immune boosting properties. But have you heard of quercetin? Quercetin is a type of antioxidant also known as flavonoids. It can be found in fruits, vegetables, and berries. Some of which include red apples, blueberries, blackberries, cherries, onions, broccoli, and leafy green vegetables. Quercetin in combination with vitamin C could boost your immune function even higher. A study was done that involved 3 groups. One group took a combination of vitamin C and quercetin and the other two took one or the other by itself. The results were conclusive, finding the group taking the combination of the two had far superior immune function, including greater decreases in inflammation and cell damage. So next time you’re looking for a vitamin C supplement check if it’s combined with quercetin. If not just combine it with some quercetin rich foods!
