The company supplies quercetin in North America, with local inventory to serve the nutritional and pharmaceutical industries
CAIF is introducing a formula of the flavonoid quercetin.
Quercetin is a flavonoid found naturally in various types of plants. It has been extensively studied for its health benefits, largely related to its antioxidant activity in the body and its ability in helping to combat free radical damage.
This formula of quercetin, now offered by CAIF, is extracted from Fava d’anta (Dimorphandra mollis), sustainably sourced from families and communities in South America, specially at Brazilian Cerrado. This formula is now available to US and global manufacturers for immediate delivery.
“The benefits of quercetin cannot be overstated as research has shown a link between an increased consumption of flavonoids, including quercetin, and a lower risk of problems due to its antioxidant and free radical effects,” said Cesar Fernandes, CEO of CAIF. “Our body’s cells are constantly under attack from reactive molecules — known as free radicals — which causes damage by oxidative stress,” states Fernandes. “Over time, such damage reflects can accelerate aging. Therefore, antioxidants are needed to counteract the negative effects of naturally occurring and ambient-induced free radicals. This is where the potent antioxidative actions of quercetin come into play.”
