Quercetin with Green Tea
Natural-source vegan quercetin capsules with green tea extract for enhanced absorption.
What is Quercetin with Green Tea?
‘An apple a day keeps the doctor away’ goes the old saying, and it looks like there’s more than a little truth in it. For a long time, official advice has been to eat at least five portions of different fruit and veg every day, due in part to their vitamin and mineral content. But, as scientists are constantly discovering, there are many more chemicals in plants that are important for nutrition.
Quercetin is a popular supplement among athletes to support the immune system during periods of intense exercise and training, when the body is more vulnerable to infection. This powerful antioxidant, found in apples, berries and some other fruit and veg, belongs to a category known as bioflavonoids, a group of compounds that were discovered in the 1930s.
Over the past couple of decades, quercetin has caught the interest of scientists who are investigating its potential to protect the body from the effects of physical stress, such as inflammation and a weakened immune system. And although the EU hasn’t yet approved health claims on quercetin, research in this area is gathering apace.
Why is ours better?
Although quercetin is found in high quantities in some fruit and vegetables, it can be difficult to absorb from food. Developed in close consultation with leading performance nutritionists, our vegan quercetin capsules also contain a high-quality green tea extract, which is thought to make quercetin easier to absorb.
Who is this for?
It’s for keen exercisers who want a little extra nutritional support to boost their immunity during times of physical stress such as intense training.
