What is the Phytonutrient QUERCETIN?

Quercetin is a phytonutrient (a compound found in plants to help protect it) and broken down even more, is called a flavonoid, which help with absorption and metabolism.  They are in foods like quinoa, berries, tea, red wine, onions, and nuts.

Quercetin aids in tissue repair, fights off disease and infection and helps neutralize free radicals that can damage the human body. This powerful phytonutrient also helps to lower cholesterol by reducing LDL concentrations and acts as an anti-inflammatory by stabilizing the cells that release histamines in the body which produce inflammation. Scientists are also studying now the benefits of eating food containing quercetin and the possible benefits of reducing allergies.

Hi, I’m Kirsten

I am a Gluten Free Nutrition Consultant who’s goal it is to make the lives easier and healthier of those with Celiac disease and those that choose to live the gluten free lifestyle.

Living the gluten free lifestyle is not an easy one and can be very overwhelming: from testing to grocery shopping, to eating out and deglutening your own household, I am here to walk you through the process from beginning to end.  With tips, tricks, humor, healthy recipes and sometimes just an understanding ear, I will guide you seamlessly through.

I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2010, so I understand completely the trials and tribulations of living gluten free.
