Chemical formula: C15H12O7; molecular weight: 304,25
DHQ with high-order crystal structure and all the attributes
of a Nano system, is a natural bioflavonoid extracted from Siberian
larch wood, with the highest antioxidant capacity, and the ability
to bind free oxygen radicals, that can cause negative changes in
the human body cells, to prevent body-aging processes, to preserve
and increase body's natural immune capabilities, extend human life
by 20-25 years.
DHQ is not derived from GMO products or produced using GMO or
their derivatives and free from BSE (Bovine spongiform encephalopathy
- known as mad cow disease).

Applications of Dihydroquercitin (DHQ)
DHQ in Food Industry
The DHQ application in the food industry does not modify organoleptic
properties of the food products.
Adding to pre-packed foods to cause a health benefit as antioxidant
and anti-inflammatory agent, accelerates stability over 30 weeks,
corresponding to 5 years of normal shelf life.
DHQ can reduce the lipid peroxidation, with the prolongation
of food products shelf life in 1.5 – 4.0 times. The presence of
even small amounts of DHQ prevents an "oxidative stress" and also
helps to protect the body against free radicals.
DHQ in Dairy Products Industry
The application of DHQ in dairy and fatty products, dry milk,
soy-milk concentrate; butter; cheese, condensed milk and milk products,
inhibits lipid peroxidation, extends the product’s shelf life in
1.5 – 4.5 times, improves the biological and nutritive value of
the product and retains its original organoleptic properties. DHQ
helps to supply the products with antioxidants, lost during the
DHQ in Fat-and-Oil Industry
The application of DHQ in fat-and-oil food processing and food
products, inhibits lipid peroxidation, extends the product’s shelf
life in 3.0 – 4.5 times, and improves the biological and nutritive
value of the product.
Reducing by 35 – 80% the harmful and cancer impact of industrial
food treatment with oils and oils harmful changes due to high temperatures
during technological processing of food and increase the quality
of the products.
DHQ in Confectionery Industry
The use of DHQ in confectioneries maintains the quality of the
product and promotes an increase in the product’s shelf life in
2 – 2.5 times. DHQ is effective in inhibiting the accumulation of
peroxides, slows down the oxidation processes not only in products,
fortified with DHQ, but also in human organism.
DHQ in Meat-, Fish- and Poultry- Farming Industries
Fortification of meat and half-finished products (ground chicken,
beef, pork meat; sausages from chicken, turkey, pork, beef meat;
pork and chicken fats, etc) with DHQ extends the products’ shelf
life in 1.5-4.0 times.
Increase the freshness of meat, half-finished products and finished
products, nutritional value and quality.
During the freezing procedures of meat, as well as temperature
treatment of meat, DHQ scientifically improve the stability of protein
cells; relax the chemical reactions between fat globule and protein
cells, keeping the freshness and quality of meat.
DHQ in Soft Drinks & Alcoholic Beverages Industries
DHQ suppresses the yeast reproduction and decreases its viability
and helps increase the products’ shelf life in 2.5 times.
Decreases the oxidation processes & increases the antioxidant
effects in soft drinks and juices, collaborating with other antioxidants,
vitamins and minerals scientifically increase the nutritional and
health values of drinks.
DHQ added to alcohol improves taste and odor of the alcoholic
beverage, promotes detoxification of acetyl aldehydes, prevents
hangover, and protects the liver.
DHQ in Animal Husbandry & Livestock Industry
Addition of DHQ to feed of poultry, piglets and calves act as
an antioxidant for fats and oils contained in the feed, and affected
a decrease of losses in production herd in poultry farming and animal
husbandry; allowed decreasing the level of the use of hormonal and
anti-bacterial drug products tending to accumulate in organisms
of poultry and animals, which leads to negative effects on health
of people consuming this meat.
The use of DHQ in composition of mixed feed decreases fat in
lean meat and increases water capacity of meat. This provides high
degree of protein hydration, increasing the value of such meat even
more, improves cardiovascular and immune systems.
DHQ application at poultry, piglets and calves farms and feeding
complexes, decreases the food consumption by 10-15% but increase
the health, growth and yields of animals by 20-30%.
DHQ in Agriculture
DHQ as a plant growth regulator considerable decreases of agricultural
crops diseases in case of seeds treatment, increases productivity
of cereal crops by 15-40%, vegetables — by 12-37%, fruits and berries
— by 10-30%.
At the same time the quality of the mentioned crops is scientifically
increased, gluten content is increased in wheat, vegetables, greens
and herbs; vegetables become more resistant to typical and un-typical
diseases; fruits ripen with larger size; vitamin-mineral composition
is richer; the application of herbicides is radically reduced, for
the most vegetables and herbs almost zero application of herbicides,
which is as well positive for human health.
DHQ in fertilizers improves the nutritional and energy value
in fertilizers, decreases the application dosage, supports and strengthens
the roots of vegetables and herbs, better absorption of nitrogen,
CO2 and the final yield.
DHQ in Drinking Water - Key to Long and Healthy Life
The use of desalinated and reclaimed (waste) water is the global
hazard of the 21st century.
Heavy polluting substances (isotopes of hydrogen, bromine, algal
toxins, endocrine disrupters, industrial, household waste) are unable
to be completely removed by any water purification systems.
Desalinated or demineralized water (Dead water) is harmful for
the human digestion. Demineralized water is very aggressive and
causes health detrimental of people and animals. Humans cannot digest
artificially mineralized water.
DHQ in Dead Water scientifically change the energy balance of
the water; stabilize the energy and mineral composition, and transforms
to Living Water, healthy water for the human digestion.
DHQ application in natural, water bottling industry improves
and increases the energy quality of the water, stabilizes the mineral
composition, and affects on the increasing of people's health.

DHQ in Sport Nutrition Industry
Improves intra-cardiac hemodynamics and intensify blood flow
to the myocardium; helps to return pathologic microcirculation to
normal, optimizing tissue blood flow; contributes to the redistribution
of blood flow within small arteries, enhancing blood supply to ischemia-affected
Enhance blood flow to muscles; enhance pulmonary mechanics and
improve lung ventilation and blood gas composition; helps to increase
РО2 (oxygen partial pressure) and blood oxygenation.
DHQ in Cosmetics & Perfumes
DHQ can be utilized in cosmetics and perfumes, specifically to
preserve raw material, oil and fat components, finished products;
render therapeutic effects to products.
Enhance protective functions of the skin against external and
internal toxicity, radiation, germs, and other environmental factors;
normalize general metabolic processes through topical application,
those in lymphatic and blood system; renew skin and slowing skin
DHQ in Dietary Supplements & Pharmaceutical Products
Due to its powerful anti-oxidative and capillary protection activities

products. DHQ is compatible with vitamins, mineral complexes, and
medicinal plant extracts.

- Vitamin P activity
- Capillary protection: improving microcirculation and blood
flow at the capillary level, promoting the development of new
- Helping to maintain blood pressure at physiological levels,
providing a mild hypotension effect
- Improvement of the elasticity of red blood cells, reduction
of blood viscosity
