How does Quercetin work?

Quercetin has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects which might help reduce prostate inflammation.

Are there safety concerns?

Quercetin is POSSIBLY SAFE for most people when taken by mouth short-term. Quercetin has been safely used in amounts up to 500 mg twice daily for 12 weeks. It is not known if longer-term use or larger amounts are safe.

Quercetin can cause headache and tingling of the arms and legs. Very high doses might cause kidney damage.
