Product Info

Vitamin C and ultra-absorbable quercetin are found in Vitamin C and Quercetin Phytosome brings a shot of Vitamin C into the body, which it can’t provide by itself.

These compounds can help protect your body from oxidative stress, promote collagen formation, promote healthy immune function and iron absorption.

Vitamin C’s biological activity is complemented by the easily absorbable form of quercetin. Vitamin C and bioflavonoids such as quercetin often occur together in healthy foods.

Vitamin C’s health benefits are well known to nutritional researchers but at the same time it is an essential nutrient, meaning humans can’t create it internally. This means that we must get all of our vitamin C from our diet and supplements.

Vitamin C and Quercetin Phytosome´s unique formulation combines high-quality vitamin C with the antioxidant quercetin which complements vitamin C´s activity in supporting whole-body health.

In this formula, quercetin has been combined with a phospholipid-based delivery system called phytosome which makes it up to 50 times more absorbable and more easy to use for the body, compared with conventional quercetin.

It is typically used by individuals looking for an immediate revitalizing effect that can support exertion from major physical or mental tasks as it offers the minerals needed to help cell renewal and contribute to normal muscle and digestive functions. All the minerals and nutrients come without any added sugars, flavors, or dyes.

Research has been done on vitamin C and it has shown that vitamin C can be a powerful antioxidant [3-10]. It can scavenge free radicals, can provide protection from oxidative stress [3-10]. Vitamin C can also stimulate iron absorption [12,13].

Furthermore, it can also participate in the formation of collagen that supports arterial walls, skin, bones and teeth [6-8]. Vitamin C also plays a role in protection against environmental and physical stresses such as ingestion of heavy metals [13-18], cigarette smoking [19-22], compromised immunity [23-30] and extreme temperatures [18,31-33].

There is a scientific evidence that specialized compounds in fruits and vegetables provide critical protection against free radical assault [34]. Quercetin is a bioflavonoid found in grape skins, onions, apples, buckwheat and other food sources.

Quercetin has a long tradition of use relieving the effects of seasonal immune challenges, and has been shown in clinical trials to encourage a healthy immune response in physically fit adults.35,36 Quercetin helps inhibit oxidative stress and inflammation. [37,38]

Quercetin also promotes both cardiovascular and endothelial health and helps maintain healthy blood pressure already within the normal range.39-44
