Ametis/Lavitol® "Dihydroquercetin"


Dihydroquercetin is a powerful antioxidant of plant origin that can protect cells from the harmful effects of free radicals and protect cell membranes against damage.

Lavitol is the patented bioflavonoid extract Dihydroquercetin (DHQ) also known as taxifolin. It is derived from Dahurian Larch (Larix gmelinii­).  Although this novel ingredient originates from the larch tree, it differs greatly from other larch-derived ingredients such as arabinogalactan. While larch arabinogalactan is commonly used for immune support and as a soluble fiber, Lavitol DHQ is considered one of nature's more powerful antioxidants and scientifically shown to provide health benefits in numerous areas.
