Quercetin may be able to prevent and treat the common flu.

Researchers in two separate studies have found that quercetin, a plant-derived flavonoid, found in many fruits and vegetables, may be able to protect against influenza. The authors of one of the studies explain how stressful exercise can weaken the body’s ability to resist lung infections like influenza. They state that the “data suggests that short-term quercetin feedings may prove to be an effective strategy to lessen the impact of stressful exercise on susceptibility to respiratory infection.” (1) This news is significant, as the World Health Organization reports that “annual epidemics result in about three to five million cases of severe illness, and about 250,000 to 500,000 deaths.” (2)

The studies have found “that during influenza virus infection, there is “oxidative stress.”” (3) This essentially means that when a person’s body fights the flu, the body’s ability to detoxify or repair itself is damaged. The researchers go on to point out that “because quercetin restored the concentrations of many antioxidants, it is proposed that it may be useful as a drug in protecting the lung from the deleterious effects of oxygen derived free radicals released during influenza virus infection.” (3) Quercetin is an excellent source of antioxidants, which are “substances that may protect you cells against the effects of free radicals (harmful cells).” (4) These findings may hold a significant health impact for hundreds of thousands of seasonal sufferers who struggle with the flu virus. 

Gene-Eden-VIR is a supplement that includes quercetin as one of its main ingredients. The development of Gene-Eden-VIR was inspired by Dr. Hanan Polansky’s discovery of microcompetition. Gene Eden-VIR is more powerful than quercetin alone, it has four other antiviral ingredients; Green Tea, Licorice Extract, Cinnamon Extract, and Selenium. Hundreds of scientific papers have demonstrated the antiviral effects of each of these ingredients. Many of these papers show specifically the effectiveness of these ingredients against influenza, and other viruses. According to David et al’s study, quercetin “has been reported to inhibit infectivity and replication of a broad spectrum of viruses.” (1)

If you are concerned about the flu, you should consider trying Gene-Eden-VIR, the natural flu remedy that targets the flu during the latent phase.
