Quercetin

Quercetin has been shown to exert anti-inflammatory effects. Inflammation is mediated partly by the release of histamine from mast cells. Quercetin may stabilize the membranes of these cells, thereby reducing histamine release. It may also affect leukotriene synthesis.

Diabetes

Quercetin may inhibit the enzyme that converts glucose to sorbitol, a compound which is linked to diabetic complications, including cataracts. Quercetin-related compounds have been shown to inhibit cataract formation in diabetic animals.

QuercetinQuercetin may also enhance insulin secretion and protect pancreatic cells from free radical damage.
