A study by the University of South Carolina published in the International Journal of Sports Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism found that quercetin taken as a daily supplement improves your endurance even if you don’t exercise!
Individuals in the study who took quercetin experienced a 13.2 percent increase in their performance and a 3.9 percent increase in VO2 max. If you’re a tennis player, cyclist, or competitive athlete, just imagine what a 13 percent increase in performance would do. It can even help you to have plenty of energy to get through the work day, a weekend with the kids, or a home improvement project.
Quercetin can help average adults battle fatigue and stress daily. It also reduces susceptibility to the flu. It protects your brain from oxidative stress which is associated with Alzheimer’s. It may lead to prevention and treatment of metabolic diseases like diabetes and obesity. It also is being looked at for cancer prevention, allergies, and childhood asthma.
