Phytochemistry:
Quercetin, one of the bioflavonoids, comprises a group of plant pigments that provide excellent cellular protection by modifying the actions of allergens, carcinogens and viruses. It is found in various often-consumed foods, seeds, nuts, flowers, barks, leaves and many other.

Pharmacological actions:
1. Antioxidant properties
As a potent antioxidant, quercetin has been found to help reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. In the cardiovascular system, it prevents free radicals from oxidizing low density lipoproteins (LDL) or bad cholesterol. Quercetin has a positive effect on dangerous excess iron and slows the buildup of abnormal-sticky platelets in the blood stream. Excess iron and sticky platelets are thought to be significant risk factors in atherosclerosis, which leads to heart attack and stroke. Therefore, flavonoid intake decreases mortality from coronary heart disease and additionally decreases the incidence of the first heart attack.

2. Anti-inflammatory properties
Quercetin’s anti-inflammatory activity appears to be due to inhibitory effects on inflammationproducing enzymes (cyclooxygenase, lipooxygenase)
and the subsequent inhibition of inflammatory mediators, including leukotrienes and prostaglandins. Inhibition of histamine release by mast cells and basophils also contributes to quercetin’s antiinflammatory activity. Therefore, it can also be used in allergies, asthma and hay fever.

3. Anti-tumor properties
Quercetin has demonstrated its ability to reduce tumour incidence which has ability to neutralize oxidants within cellular material.Therefore quercetin
has demonstrated significant antitumor activity against a wide range of cancers, including squamous cell carcinoma, leukemia, and cancers of the breast, ovaries, colon, prostate, rectum and brain.
