It is human nature to love beauty, delaying aging can be said to be the appeal of all women, and among the aging of various organs, the aging of the skin is the most obvious. Therefore, slowing down the aging of the skin is the dream of the majority of women. Scientists have discovered that a natural compound called quercetin can slow down the aging of skin cells. Let's take a look.
Quercetin is a natural flavonoid that can be extracted from the flowers, leaves and fruits of many plants. Current studies have found that quercetin has multiple biological activities, among which the most interesting is its antioxidant effect.
So how does quercetin exert its antioxidant effect? It is a natural chelating agent that can chelate iron in the body and reduce iron overload in the body, thereby reducing oxidative damage caused by iron overload. According to the research, after supplementing iron-containing food and taking quercetin orally, the protein expression returned to normal, and the oxidative damage of the mice was significantly reduced. The strong comprehensive antioxidant capacity of quercetin may be related to the structural characteristics of polyhydroxy and hydroxy unformed glycosides. The antioxidant mechanism of quercetin is mainly to scavenge free radicals and superoxide anions, and there are three main ways: (1) complex with superoxide anions to reduce the generation of oxygen free radicals; (2) complex with iron ions to prevent (3) Inhibit aldose reductase and reduce the consumption of reduced coenzyme II (NADPH), thereby improving the body's antioxidant capacity. To put it simply, it reduces the formation of oxygen free radicals, allowing our skin to avoid aging caused by oxidation, thereby improving skin quality.
Quercetin is a flavonoid compound, which is a kind of Chinese medicinal material with a wide range of uses, also known as quercetin and quercetin. It has a good expectorant, antitussive effect, and has a certain antiasthmatic effect. In addition, it has the functions of lowering blood pressure, enhancing capillary resistance, reducing capillary fragility, lowering blood lipids, expanding coronary arteries, and increasing coronary blood flow. For the treatment of chronic bronchitis. It also has adjuvant therapy for patients with coronary heart disease and hypertension.
