Speaker Anthony L. Almada will present 'Quercefit — A New Direction in Performance Nutrition, and Beyond' at SupplySide West on 8 November
Quercefit is extracted from Sophora japonica
Quercetin is one of the most common flavonoids available in several botanical species, known for its biological activities (such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, analgesic). Its use in several areas, among which sports nutrition, has gained the interest of the scientific community over the last years. Nevertheless, the use of Quercetin (QC) has been limited by its low bioavailability: it has been estimated that only 20% of the administered dose reaches the blood, thus no effective levels are available in the bloodstream.
Quercefit – standardised in quercetin – is formulated with the Phytosome delivery system to optimise the biological absorption of the flavonoids.
Compared to unformulated quercetin extracts, Quercefit proved to be up to 20 times more bioavailable, according to a pharmacokinetic study. A controlled human study proved the effectiveness of 250mg (twice/day) of the ingredient on amateur sprint triathlon athletes.
Quercefit is a fine powder, easy to formulate as stand-alone, or in combination with multi-component formulations, showing versatility in terms of formulative options.
Find out more about the product and better understand how optimising the bioavailability of the flavonoid quercetin can enhance its efficacy.
