From Naturiste :
Over the past few days, many of you have asked us questions concerning the possible effectiveness of Quercetin in helping to prevent the Coronavirus.
According to a Radio-Canada article, Dr. Michel Chrétien, doctor and researcher at the Montreal Clinical Research Institute, declared that:
“Quercetin (a vegetable substance) could prevent and cure the coronavirus“
Quercetin is a plant flavonol from the flavonoid group of polyphenols. It is found in many fruits, vegetables, leaves, seeds, and grains. Its antioxidant properties may help reduce inflammation, allergy symptoms, and blood pressure. According to Dr Chretien, Quercetin has been successfully tested in dealing with the Ebola and Zika viruses. Naturiste has not verified this claim.
