Quercetin VS Quercetin Phytosome
Quercetin is the most common form, but quercetin phytosome is more bioavailable. Quercetin has a very low bioavailability, it’s hard for your body to absorb it.
Quercetin Phytosome, a new food-grade and lecithin-based formulation of quercetin. “Phytosome”, the term simply translates to “Phyto” + “Liposome”. Phyto means “plant”, Phytosome is a plant-based delivery system for herbs, nutrients, and other active compounds. liposome means “tiny lipid or fat particles”. It is usually made by combining the bioactive ingredient with a phospholipid.
Quercetin VS Quercetin Dihydrate VS Quercetin Anhydrous
Both quercetin and quercetin dihydrate are organic flavonoids. The main difference between them is that quercetin is a plant flavonoid, while quercetin dihydrate is a synthetic compound. In addition, the appearance of quercetin is yellow crystalline powder, while quercetin dihydrate is bright yellow.
Quercetin anhydrous and quercetin dihydrate mainly differ in the amount of water they contain. The aqueous ingredients of quercetin anhydrous are about 1% to 4%, and the sugar molecules attached to quercetin have been extracted. This means 13% more quercetin per gram for quercetin anhydrous than quercetin dihydrate.
Quercetin dihydrate has higher bioavailability when it comes to quercetin supplements.
Quercetin vs dihydroquercetin
Quercetin and dihydroquercetin are both plant flavonoids. The main difference between them is that they have different chemical compositions. Dihydroquercetin is more powerful and more bioavailable than quercetin, as it has two additional atoms of hydrogen per molecule.
In addition, quercetin and dihydroquercetin often come from different plant sources. Quercetin is commonly found in the bitter inner rind of citrus fruits, cherries, and apples, vegetables like kale and broccoli. Dihydroquercetin, also called taxifolin, is often found in milk thistle, onions, grapes, and the tree bark of some conifers.
