Sorry I meant to add this to my post re:resveratrol.
I am interested in learning about quercetin and pd and if it is found in food.

Noah, the answer would be about the same. A good deal of research on its potential for neuroprotection, but the studies have produced somewhat mixed results. It appears to be more effective in test tube studies than in animal studies. At this time, there are no human studies of quercetin related to PD.

At the moment, the best recommendation is to obtain quercetin through foods rather than supplements, as research regarding its safety is uncertain. Quercetin is found in numerous vegetables and fruits, such as onions, broccoli, kale, cherries, blackberries, black/red grapes, apples, tea (both black and green), and red wine.
Best regards,
