The quercetin It is a natural bioflavonoid with strong antioxidant activity. The antioxidant activity of quercetin protects the gastrointestinal tract in several ways.
First of all, the quercetin prevents lipid oxidation. The gastrointestinal tract has greater exposure to oxidative stress, due to its lower pH. It is important to protect the lipid bilayer of the cell wall of the gastrointestinal tract because these cells constitute an important part of the body's immune system.
Secondly, the quercetin prevents the depletion of glutathione in the cells of the intestinal tract. Glutathione is a co-substrate of the antioxidant enzymes glutathione peroxidase and glutathione reductase. To preserve glutathione level, quercetin protects the metabolic activity and vulnerable cells of the upper gastrointestinal tract from damage by toxic free radicals. Vitamin C synergistically enhances quercetin's ability to preserve glutathione
Thirdly, the quercetin increases mucus secretion from gastric cells. Polysaccharide mucus provides a layer of protection for gastric cells from the low pH of the stomach. Reduced contact provides protection against gastric injury. Quercetin also reduces the immune response to allergens. Quercetin inhibits IgE-mediated response and the release of allergic agents from mast cells, as well as IgG-mediated histamine release.
The quercetin It is a potent lipoxygenase inhibitor that metabolizes arachidonic acid into pro-inflammatory metabolites.
Therefore, in the gastrointestinal tract, quercetin helps protect against gastric lesions that cause highly antigenic proteins and compounds, as well as infectious agents, to pass through the body. In addition, it prevents the release of the components of the allergic response.
Useful food supplement for people who wish to complement their diet with quercetin as immune support and antioxidant protection.
