Supreme Pharmatech developed a line of nutritional supplements with liposomal quercetin
Quercetin is the most abundant dietary flavonoid found in many plants and foods, such as red wine, green tea, apples, onions, berries, and others. Quercetin is linked to a wide range of health benefits, included lowering inflammatory markers, reduction of cholesterol and high blood pressure, lowering oxidative stress, neuro protection and extending immunomodulating effects. Numerous clinical studies with Quercetin have confirmed its antiviral potential and pointed to a proposed usage of Quercetin in connection with fighting respiratory diseases.
Respiratory lung diseases are on the rise for the past several decades, due to poor quality of air in many regions of the world. Air pollution, tobacco consumption, obesity and poor exercise and diet are the main contributing factors in this global health crisis.
The Lancet Respiratory Medicine journal (Vol. 8, Issue 6, P531-533, June 01, 2020) stated "…close to 545 million people in the world have had a chronic respiratory disease in 2017, an increase of 39.8% since 1990…"
According to this data, which was published from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), from 2009 till 2019 the rate of lower respiratory tract infections in Thailand increased a massive 77.1%. The rate of lung cancer in the Thai population had increased 32.9% for the same period of time.
Professor MR Mozafari, Head of the nano-liposome research and development team at Supreme Pharmatech, said that nutritional and environmental factors playing leading role in sharp increase of respiratory diseases in Asia. It is well known fact, that household air pollution from solid fuels, as well as prolonged exposure to airborne particle matter are dramatically influencing the rise of respiratory diseases in South-East Asian countries, especially Thailand.
Recent research, published at Natural Product Communications journal suggested usage of Quercetin against coronavirus infections. The meta-analysis published at US National Library of Medicine stated, that supplementation with flavonoids decreased incidents of respiratory infections by 33%
Conventional Quercetin powders have low bioavailability. It is estimated, that less than 20% of orally taken Quercetin can reach systemic circulation. For decades this was the main obstacle in wider usage of Quercetin against respiratory viral diseases, but with the help of Liposomal technology, Quercetin-based nutritional supplements from Supreme Pharmatech will play an important role as a protective measure against viral infections of respiratory tract.
