FACTS ON PERQUE PAIN GUARD FORTÉ
Flavonoids, which are also called bioflavonoids, are pigments that protect plants from free-radical damage, among other functions.
The human body cannot produce these phytochemicals, so we must get them through diet and/or supplementation.* Lower rates of heart disease and cancer are typically found in populations that consume higher levels of flavonoids.*
Quercetin dihydrate is a yellow-green flavonoid that helps reduce allergic and inflammatory responses by promoting repair. It has shown anti-viral and antioxidant effects.
Proanthocyanidins that are bound together are collectively called proanthocyanidin oligomers or OPCs. They can be absorbed into cell membranes, protecting against both fat- and water-soluble free radicals. OPCs are also able to cross the blood-brain barrier and protect the brain against free radical damage.*
Because OPCs are so diverse, they deliver synergistic antioxidant benefits with vitamins C or E. In addition, OPCs quench the free radicals involved in inflammation and allergies. They also enhance the effectiveness of the body's natural killer cells and boosts the body's natural anti-cancer defenses.*
QUERCETIN AND ESTROGEN
Quercetin dihydrate has another important benefit. Quercetin dihydrate antagonizes potentially harmful forms of estrogen in the body. Thus, quercetin dihydrate may be considered superior to ipraflavanol.*
