Influence of 4-week intraduodenal supplementation of quercetin on performance, glucose metabolism, and mRNA abundance of genes related to glucose metabolism and antioxidative status in dairy cows.


Quercetin has been shown to be a potent antioxidant, acts hepatoprotectively, and affects glucose and lipid metabolism in monogastrics. If this is also true in ruminants, quercetin could be beneficial in periparturient high-yielding dairy cows by ameliorating the negative effects of free radical formation and reducing the severity of liver lipidosis and… (More)
