What are the benefits of Quercetin Dihydrate?

Quercetin is an antioxidant, flavanol, and polyphenol found in leafy greens, berries, broccoli, apples, green tea, and grapes.

myPEAK Wellness uses the quercetin dihydrate, instead of regular quercetin, because quercetin dihydrate has much higher bioavailability. Quercetin dihydrate is also significantly more expensive, but is absorbed and used much more readily by the body, thus giving you the optimal benefits.*

Quercetin has a range of benefits for your health and your gut bacteria. Quercetin promotes gut bacterial diversity by providing fuels for good bacteria to metabolize as well as strength for intestinal barrier function [29-30].* Quercetin is metabolized by your gut bacteria into phenolic acids, which are potent antioxidant compounds that benefit your health [31-35].* As an antioxidant, quercetin can quench free radicals in the body protecting cells from oxidative damage and support cardiovascular health [36-37].*

Quercetin can also promote healthy aging through several other mechanisms including the reduction of advanced glycation end-products and effects on aged, senescent cells [38-41].* Advanced glycation end products are damaging molecules that form when proteins or fats combine with sugars and contribute to aging, inflammation, and oxidative stress [42-45]. *
