Quercetin Immunity Support (VEGAN)
One of the best supplements 2022 has to offer in the fight against COVID-19, quercetin acts as an antiviral, an anti-inflammatory agent, and an antioxidant all in one. As a polyphenol derived from leafy green plants like green tea and broccoli, its potential as an inhibitor for COVID-19 and other viruses has been the subject of much research. Thus far, quercetin has shown promise in promoting and enhancing the inflammation response to viruses like COVID-19.
Quercetin is a flavonoid extracted from plants with anti-inflammatory properties that acts as a powerful antioxidant to fight free radicals that cause oxidation to cells. This naturally occurring phytochemical shows promising bioactive effects to support the immune system.
Quercetin by itself is not very well absorbed into the body, so we have combined it with vitamin C which greatly improves absorption, while at the same time also amplifies quercetins immune boosting properties.
People take quercetin to help manage a variety of issues, including: Heart and vessel problems, Lowering blood pressure, Prostate infections, Preventing upper respiratory infections, Allergies, & Disease prevention. Please read the importance of Quercetin & Zinc

The importance of Quercetin & Zinc:
Zinc is vital for immune system function. Zinc controls immune system messaging within the cells and is also an anti-oxidant (prevents cell damage) and is anti-inflammatory. In cellular lab cultures, zinc has been shown to stop viral reproducing in minutes. One study showed that zinc inhibited SARS coronavirus in test tubes. For zinc to work effectively in the body to boost immune system function, zinc has to be pushed into the cells which would require an ionophore. An ionophore is a substance that transports particles across the cell wall barrier into the center of the cell. The center of the cell is where zinc needs to be to have the immune system effect. Viruses reproduce in the center of the cells. Zinc needs to be in the center of the cell to stop viral reproduction. An all-natural zinc ionophore is quercetin. Quercetin is a plant pigment found in red wine, onions, apples, berries and green tea. Quercetin is one of the most abundant anti-oxidants found in our diet and itself has strong anti-viral properties. The major benefit of taking quercetin with zinc is that the quercetin will push the zinc into the center of the cell where the zinc can stop the virus from reproducing.
Based on this information, zinc and quercetin are absolutely needed in your anti-viral war chest and should be taken daily all winter long and or immediately at the first sign of illness. Add Zinc
