QUERCETIN: A NATURAL REVERSE TRANSCRIPTASE INHIBITOR

A potent natural reverse transcriptase blocker is quercetin, a bioflavonoid commonly found in red apples and red onions and also available as a food supplement. Though large doses may be required in humans to produce therapeutic effects, quercetin has been shown to have antiviral activity against HIV, herpes simplex, polio-virus and the respiratory syncytial virus. [1] One study even showed that it was possible to overcome the polio virus by pairing vitamin C with quercetin. [2]
