Cooper Complete’s Top Health Benefits of Quercetin Complex Supplement

Quercetin is a plant compound, classified as a flavonoid, found in fruits and vegetables. Cooper Complete® Quercetin Complex Supplement combines quercetin, bromelain and vitamin C to support cardio-metabolic function, a healthy gastrointestinal tract and immune health. Now with the newly improved formula, our Quercetin Complex is specifically tailored to meet your health and wellness needs—promoting exercise recovery and relieving seasonal allergy discomfort.

Quercetin is the most common flavonoid found in foods and has been determined to be best absorbed by being paired with dietary fat. The average person is estimated to consume 13 mg of quercetin daily through various food sources including:

  • Apples
  • Grapes
  • Berries
  • Citrus
  • Cherries
  • Broccoli
  • Onions
  • Capers
  • Green tea
  • Coffee
  • Red wine

Immunity boost

Flavonoids are well known for their ability to act like antioxidants in the body by protecting it from free radicals and inflammation—both of which contribute to the onset of chronic disease. Blood plasma tests have shown the form of quercetin in Cooper Complete, Quercefit® quercetin phytosome—the main ingredient in Cooper Complete Quercetin Complex—increases concentrated quercetin levels in the blood by 20-fold compared to standard quercetin.

Recent clinical research on Quercefit® quercetin phytosome revealed a reduction in frequency and length of hospitalizations, respiratory failure, ICU transfers and number of deaths. This finding suggests quercetin supplementation in combination with standard care in the early stages of viral infection could contribute to the reduction of symptoms and disease severity.

Quercetin Complex was added to the Cooper Complete supplement line in 2020. Cooper Clinic Platinum Physician Michael Chapman, MD, shares quercetin is thought to have direct virucidal properties, meaning it can destroy or inactivate viruses. “Quercetin is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent but should be used with caution in patients with hypothyroidism and TSH levels should be monitored.”

Serving as a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent, quercetin is believed to act as a zinc ionophore, binding itself to zinc ions and releasing them in cell membranes, which is especially important with zinc being a critical component of both our innate and adaptive immune systems.

Exercise recovery

Quercetin supplementation has also been shown to enhance physical performance as well as accelerate muscle recovery in a controlled study on healthy triathlon athletes. More than 11% of the athletes who took one tablet of 250 mg Quercefit® quercetin phytosome twice daily saw a reduction in their race times just after 14 days of supplementation. Also, one hour after their final run, athletes demonstrated lower oxidative stress levels, which have been associated with delayed recovery time from exercise fatigue.

Allergy support

Allergy sufferers now may be able to find symptom relief through quercetin supplementation as well. Subjects with mild to moderate asthmatic attacks and rhinitis who took Quercefit® quercetin phytosome daily reported a significant reduction in symptom discomfort.

Blood pressure reduction

Lastly, a 12-week study conducted on individuals who were prehypertensive and hypertensive showed a significant reduction in blood pressure in patients with hypertension after consistent quercetin supplementation. It’s important to know the biggest reductions were in randomized controlled trials with doses of at least 500 mg per day, with an average 4.45 mm Hg reduction in systolic and 2.98 mm Hg reduction in diastolic blood pressure. Cooper Complete Quercetin Complex contains 250 mg quercetin in the more highly absorbable Quercefit® quercetin Phytosome form.

With more research emerging, quercetin proves to be a key player in minimizing inflammation, increasing immunity, enhancing exercise recovery and reducing allergy symptoms and blood pressure levels.

As a reminder, your health care provider understands your health profile best, including your medical history, risks and current medication and supplement use. It is important to talk to him or her about which supplements are best for you.
