Isoquercetin vs Quercetin vs Quercetin Phytosome 2023: What's the Difference?

Quercetin is a type of flavonoid present in many fruits, vegetables, and grains. It’s one of the most abundant antioxidants in the diet and plays an important role in helping your body combat free radical damage, which is linked to chronic diseases.

Quercetin is an aglycone, meaning that it lacks a glycoside side chain. In contrast, naturally occurring quercetin compounds are primarily glycosides, with only very small quantity occurring as an aglycone.
