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. QuercefitTM – standardized in quercetin – is formulated with the Phytosome delivery system to optimize the biological absorption of the flavonoids.
Compared to unformulated quercetin extracts, Quercefit™ proved to be up to 20-fold more bioavailable, according to a pharmacokinetic study. A controlled human study proved the effectiveness of 250mg (twice/day) of the ingredient on amateur athletes practicing triathlon according to “Sprint” format (100 minutes for swimming 750 m + cycling 20 km + running 5 km). QuercefitTM has statistically enhanced the resistance, by improving performance and speeding recovery, and reducing discomfort.
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.
