PL Thomas Offers Food Origin Sources of Quercetin

Quercetin may be a major reason why the old adage about eating "an apple a day" has been associated with good health. Quercetin, a potent antioxidant found in apples, onions and some other fruits and vegetables, is a flavonoid that helps fight cell-damaging free radicals.

Recent research has linked Quercetin's benefits to brain cell protection, inhibition of LDL oxidation, inhibition of histamine and other conditions affected by free radical damage.*

PLT has developed a significant line of Food Origin Ingredients for nutritional applications, including sources of quercetin.

Appol™ is a standardized extract of apples providing 5% quercetin, 5% phloredizin and 5% caffeoylquinic acids. Standardized to provide 50% total apple polyphenols, Appol™ is a whole food, non-GMO product.

PotentOnion™ is a standardized extract of onions providing 30% quercetin in the highly bioavailable glycosylated form. The product provides 50% total polyphenols using a patented process which preserves the polyphenols due to the inhibition of oxidation. PotentOnion™ is a whole food, non-GMO product.
