The Incredible Longevity benefits of Quercetin

Reading Time: 7 minutes [1736 words]

Father Time. Most of us are taught from a very young age that “Father Time” is a natural part of life that must be accepted. We are told that Father Time can heal old wounds, teach us lessons, and increase our wisdom and tranquility.

And it is also drilled into us that there is nothing...absolutely nothing that we can do to interrupt, interfere, or otherwise get in the way of Father Time’s relentless, inexorable march forward, regardless of what “everyone’s father” eventually does to our health and well-being.

Beginning in middle-age and progressing into old age, the question often arises: “How can I deal with the reality of Father Time pounding on my front door? I still work out as hard as ever, eat clean, stay hydrated, and make sleep a priority. But the aches and pains increase, fatigue seems to overtake me, my strength is diminishing, and the pounds and flab are piling on. How can I deal with this? Is there any hope of telling Father Time to go away?”

We know what does not work to slow down this advancing highway of destruction: doing nothing! Let’s begin by not referring to “Father Time” as our father. Father time is not our father! He is not even a relative. No, Father Time resembles a stalker who sneaks up on us, waiting for the chance to rob us of our health, our freedom, and our dignity.

So doing nothing is not an option.

Sitting back and accepting this lineup of maladies is not an option for those who want to retain their health, freedom, cognitive abilities, and independence. And hormone replacement therapy is a crucial step in that direction.

Our hormone replacement regimens cover all bases of hormone restoration: Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Replacement Therapy, Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), and Sermorelin Hormone Replacement Therapy. Our treatments will revitalize and rejuvenate every system in your body beyond what you can imagine!

But we don’t stop with hormone replacement. In our quest to deliver you the most efficient, comprehensive health package available, we look at several different aspects and approaches to regain and retain optimal health: nutrition, hydration, deep, restorative sleep, physical fitness, and proper, up-to-date, intelligent supplementation. And that includes Quercetin.

What is Quercetin?

Quercetin is a flavonoid antioxidant plant pigment that works synergistic-ally with other vitamins, minerals, and other anti-oxidants to deliver a broad range of health-promoting benefits, so many different benefits that it has been described as a “Swiss-Army Knife” of health and longevity. Quercetin is a chemical found naturally in several foods and acts as an antioxidant, neutralizing free radicals—the chemical by-products that harm cell membranes and damage DNA.

Research shows that quercetin may help control a broad range of health issues and has been shown in numerous studies to have anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral activities. Quercetin is considered the most widely distributed and extensively studied flavonoid, according to a 2018 study, and is one of the main ingredients in so-called “Super-Foods” that makes them super. Flavonoids are a large group of plant compounds that are potent anti-oxidants.

According to research, quercetin plays a crucial role in lowering free radical damage and the effects of aging and inflammation. Flavinoids are excellent scavengers of free radicals and help slow the aging progress by lowering oxidative stress that occurs as a direct result of our chemical-laden, toxic environment, our addiction to junk food, chronic sleep deprivation, and constant, round-the-clock stress.

Let’s take a look at a few of the benefits that Quercetin can deliver:

  • Cellular senescence. This is the big enchilada and the heavy artillery in the life-and-death battle against the ravages of aging and Father Time. Many of our cells become senescent as we age, which means they can no longer function properly, but they don’t go away. Instead, they emit pro-inflammatory signals and secrete protein-degrading enzymes – think about grumpy old men sitting in a corner with nothing nice to say but refusing to shut up. Quercetin is a senolytic, which means that it can help get rid of these useless, nasty cells and make room for younger, healthy cells to replace them. The importance of clearing senescent cells from the body cannot be overstated. These toxic cells are precursors of inflammation and accelerate the aging process, something none of us need. The Mayo Clinic discovered that “If only one in 7,000 to 15,000 cells are senescent, then age-related deterioration starts to occur in laboratory mice.” Senoytics like quercetin target anti-apoptotic pathways, which cause senescent cells to commit suicide and leave the body.
  • Boosts cardiovascular health. According to many studies, quercetin seems to be beneficial for people with heart and blood vessel-related disorders because of its ability to lower inflammation and oxidative stress. Quercetin has also been linked to reduced risk for type 2 diabetes and obesity, which have many of the same risk factors as heart disease. Research has concluded that quercetin may lower the risk of atherosclerosis, a buildup of plaque within the arteries that constricts blood flow and is a significant risk factor for heart attack and stroke.
  • Lowers Blood Pressure. A 2016 review of randomized controlled trials found quercetin significantly reduced both systolic and diastolic blood pressure, particularly in people with diabetes who were given at least 500 milligrams per day. Consequently, quercetin has been linked to reduced risk for type 2 diabetes and obesity. As mentioned earlier, quercetin lowers inflammation and oxidative stress and therefore benefits people with heart and blood vessel-related issues. Antioxidants like quercetin can also lower LDL “bad” cholesterol and can help reduce blood pressure.
  • Allergy Relief. Allergy sufferers will be interested to know that quercetin may prevent the release of histamine – an inflammatory chemical involved in allergic symptoms like itching and sneezing – from certain immune cells. Histamines are chemicals released when the immune system detects an allergy or sensitivity. Quercetin can help stabilize their release from certain immune cells, which results in decreased symptoms of allergies like runny noses, coughs, indigestion, watery eyes, swollen lips or tongue, and hives. Many consider quercetin to be a natural antihistamine and an anti-inflammatory , which may explain why it can ease the suffering from the effects of seasonal and food allergies, along with skin reactions and breathing difficulties.
  • Lowers inflammation. It is nearly a universal consensus among researchers and health professionals that inflammation is the root cause of a broad range of diseases: heart disease, cancer, cognitive decline, arthritis, and autoimmune disorders. Flavonoids like quercetin are crucial anti-inflammatories that also perform double-duty as antioxidants, which means they fight the natural process of oxidation that occurs as we age. Quercetin can help stop damaging particles in the body known as free radicals, adversely affecting healthy cell functioning. Additionally, quercetin can also lower the expression of inflammatory genes.
  • Helps ease pain Taking quercetin supplements may help ease the pain associated with arthritis, as well as infections, including those of the prostate and respiratory tract. Numerous small studies have concluded that people suffering bladder pains from infections experience fewer symptoms when taking quercetin supplements. Quercetin is also linked to reduced symptoms of prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate) and rheumatoid arthritis(RA).
  • Provide skin protection. The skin is the largest organ in the body and is also the first line of defense from several dangerous invaders like Mast Cells. These cells are immune cells that play a vital role in triggering allergic reactions, inflammatory disease, and autoimmune disease. Studies have concluded that quercetin may protect skin from the effects of disorders like dermatitis and photosensitivity and block the release of many pro-inflammatory cytokines, such as IL-8 and TNF, which puts out the blazing fire of skin inflammation. The good news is that this is true even in folks who have tried every other conventional treatment or prescription to no avail!
  • Quercetin has more benefits, many more: It may improve energy and endurance, protect the brain...and protect liver health. The parade of benefits just keeps on coming!


Food sources of Quercetin

Here is a shortlist of some of the foods that contain quercetin:

  • Apples

  • Peppers

  • Green and black tea

  • Red onion

  • Red wine

  • Berries (blueberries, bilberries, blackberries, strawberries)

  • Dark cherries

  • Tomatoes

  • Dark Chocolate

  • Cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts)

  • Leafy greens (spinach, kale)

  • Cocoa

  • Citrus fruits

  • Olive oil

  • Whole grains

As you can see, many food choices contain quercetin. But it is extremely challenging to receive the benefits of quercetin with food alone due to soil depletion, crop rotation, and other farming methods of the giant agricultural companies (i.e., “Big Agra”). Therefore you need to consider quercetin supplements seriously.

Quercetin supplementation

Common oral dosages are 500 mg taken twice daily, but it’s also possible to experience benefits when taking lower doses. The key takeaway is to start with smaller doses and listen to the feedback you receive from your body. There are many factors to consider: your age, current physical condition, other medications you ate taking, gender, and medical history.

Quercetin is often combined with other anti-inflammatory ingredients such as bromelain, a plant-derived enzyme that has been shown to increase the intestine's absorption of quercetin. This is called a “quercetin complex” formula, a synergistic formula intended to offer additional antioxidant benefits.

As with all supplements, make sure to discuss this with your physician or another medical professional.

Possible side effects and risks of Quercetin

Because it’s derived naturally from foods, quercetin poses few risks. Amounts up to 500 mg taken twice daily for 12 weeks appear to be safe. Quercetin is generally well-tolerated when used in appropriate amounts.

However, when beginning a quercetin supplement regimen, the usual caveats apply. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, those with pre-existing medical conditions, and people taking medications like blood-thinners, undergoing chemotherapy, and using antibiotics must exercise extreme caution and get medical clearance from their doctor! No exceptions!

After staying in the shadows for many years, quercetin has finally emerged as more research has uncovered the many benefits that it can deliver.

Nothing can replace the longevity, life-extending, health-restoring benefits that our cutting-edged hormone replacement therapies can accomplish. The word supplement is defined as “something that completes or makes an addition.” Our hormone therapies are complete, so any supplement we recommend or discuss with you is in addition to our treatment regimens and will add an extra edge to your quest for health and longevity.
