Quercenase is a combination of quercetin phytosome and bromelain. Bromelain is a compound of proteolytic enzymes derived from the pineapple plant. Bromelain has protein-digesting and immune-enhancing properties.* Bromelain also contains constituents that helps maintain a healthy cytokine balance, and may help the absorption of quercetin.*
Quercetin stabilizes mast cells that store and release histamine.* Quercetin appears to have many other beneficial effects on human health, including cardiovascular protection, as well as protection of the gastrointestinal tract.* A number of quercetin's effects appear to be due to its antioxidant activity.* Quercetin scavenges free radicals and inhibits oxidation of LDL cholesterol.* By itself, and paired with vitamin C, quercetin can reduce the incidence of oxidative damage to skin and nerves caused by glutathione depletion.*
The advantage of quercetin phytosome is its advanced phytosome technology. Phytosome complexes are created by a patented process that binds a botanical extract to phosphatidylcholine, a key component of cell membranes.
