What is Quercetin? Does it help fight against cancer?

It is known to act as an antioxidant and has anti-inflammatory properties by inhibiting histamine. Laboratory studies indicate anticancer activity of quercetin against a wide range of cancer cell types. A systematic review showed that it does not help reduce the risk of ovarian cancer. But, studies in animals have shown its ability to increase the power of doxorubicin in liver cancer cells. Doxorubicin is one of the chemo that we call the ‘red devil’.
