Quercetin, as a natural flavonoid compound that exists widely in nature, has received in-depth research. It has been found that it has multiple biological activities, such as antioxidant, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory effects. It can be used in cell and animal experiments. Treat liver, heart, spleen, lung, kidney, orthopedic diseases, nervous system diseases, etc.
Quercetin has many functions such as anti-oxidation, scavenging free radicals, and inhibiting lipid peroxidation. It can resist oxidation, protect cardiovascular health, and also shows good effects in anti-cancer.
Inhibit tumor activity
In terms of anti-cancer, quercetin has many studies showing its inhibitory effect on various cancer cells. In terms of the specific mechanism of action, quercetin has a variety of biological effects, inhibiting a variety of enzymes in cancer cells to participate in cell proliferation and signal transduction pathways.
Protection of the heart
Quercetin has the effects of lowering blood pressure, enhancing capillary resistance, reducing capillary fragility, lowering blood lipids, dilating coronary arteries, increasing coronary blood flow, etc. It also has an adjuvant therapeutic effect on patients with coronary heart disease and hypertension.
Quercetin can significantly reduce the replication rate of hepatitis C virus. At the same time, it is found that the infectivity of virus particles treated with quercetin is reduced by 65%, indicating that quercetin affects the integrity of the virus. It is further confirmed by molecular experiments that quercetin affects the integrity of the virus. Cortin can play an antiviral effect by preventing hepatitis C virus from up-regulating diacylglycerol acyltransferase and the typical localization of hepatitis C virus core protein on the surface of lipid droplets.
