Cardiovascular disease constitutes a major public health concern in industrialized nations. Over recent decades, a large body of evidence has accumulated indicating that oxidative stress induced free radicals play a critical role in cellular processes implicated in atherosclerosis and many other heart diseases. However a diet high in antioxidants is associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. The compound quercetin is a dietary antioxidant with a polyphenolic structure that is…

The Effect of Quercetin on Plasma Oxidative Status, C-Reactive Protein and Blood Pressure in Women with Rheumatoid Arthritis

In this study, quercetin had no effect on oxidative and inflammatory status of plasma and blood pressure in patients with RA and further studies are needed to ensure the effect of quercETin on oxidative stress and inflammation in human.

Study of antioxidant activity of liposomal forms of quercetin and curcumin in ischemic heart disease

The complex of the two antioxidants showed the synergistic effect of their lipophilic compounds in liposomal forms, which led to the normalization of test parameters according to the level of the control sample, and demonstrated the antioxidant activity of monopreparations of curcumin and quercetin and their complex in lipOSomal forms.

Application of quercetin-O-glucoside derivative to treatment of lipid metabolism disorders

Through in vitro and in vivo pharmacological activity study, the quercetin-O-glucoside derivative can play a role in reducing the lipid in the in vivo and in vitro experiments and provides a drug composition for treating lipid metabolism disorders.

Phenolic Content and Antioxidant Activity in Fruit of the Genus Rosa L.

Throughout history, people of different cultures have acknowledged the relationship between food properties and health. The pseudo-fruits of different Rosa species contain high levels of vitamin C

Antiviral Activities of Jatropha curcas: A Review

The literature review shows that Jatropha curcas have antiviral properties on different types of viruses, which can help inform future scientific research towards the development of anti-Hepatitis B virus and antiCovid-19 herbal drugs of relevance as well as nutraceuticals from J. curcas for the improvement of human health and wellbeing.

Dose-related effects of Quercetin in the human breast carcinoma MCF-7 cell line

This study evaluated quercetin for toxicity in the MCF-7 cell line in the presence or absence of benzo[ a]pyrene (B[a]P), a known DNA-reactive carcinogen.

Mechanism of Tea Mistletoe Action on Blood Vessels

The mistletoe of tea flavonoids has a potential effect to improve endothelial dysfunction through a reendothelial mechanism and can inhibit the contraction of the arteries, through role of the endothelium.

Changes of gelatinases activity in rats with anthracycline cardiopathy at application of nonsteroid antiinflammatory drugs and quercetin

It is concluded that the stabilization of gelatinases activity is an inicator of myocardial metabolism and additional indicator of fibrosis development.

Comparative Investigation of the Effect of Quercetin and Hydroalcoholic Extract of Otostegia Persica Boiss with Atorvastatin on ABC A1 Gene Expression in Hypercholesterolemic Male Wistar Rats

This paper presents a meta-analyses of the determinants of apoptosis, a type of cell death that occurs when a cell is attacked by a virus, which has the potential to devastate the structure of the cell.



Antioxidants and cardiovascular disease: Still a topic of interest

A mechanism of oxidative stress is presented, focusing mainly on the development of an oxidised low density lipoprotein, and the results of a clinical trial of antioxidant therapy and epidemiological studies on the relationships between nutrient antioxidants and cardiovascular disease are presented.

Flavonoids protect LDL from oxidation and attenuate atherosclerosis

Plant flavonoids, as potent natural antioxidants that protect against lipid peroxidation in arterial cells and lipoproteins, significantly attenuate the development of atherosclerosis.

Dietary Polyphenols and the Prevention of Diseases

Experimental studies on animals or cultured human cell lines support a role of polyphenols in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases, cancers, neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes, or osteoporosis, but no clear associations have been found between cancer risk and polyphenol consumption.

Polyphenols and prevention of cardiovascular diseases

Future intervention studies should include a detailed assessment of the bioavailability of polyphenols, and more studies with purepolyphenols will also be needed to establish their role in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases.

Polyphenols and disease risk in epidemiologic studies.

Plant polyphenols, a large group of natural antioxidants, are serious candidates in explanations of the protective effects of vegetables and fruits against cancer and cardiovascular diseases.

The role of polyphenolic compounds in the diet as inhibitors of platelet function

The hydroxycinnamates and the flavonoid quercetin inhibited platelet function, although not at levels that can be achieved in human plasma by dietary intervention, and polyphenols inhibit platelet aggregation at levels lower than those previously reported.
