📚HOW DOES QUERCETIN MAKE CAFFEINE LAST LONGER?
In the Liver, there are various enzymes that fall under the P450 family. These enzymes are responsible for METABOLISING all sorts of drugs, hormones, chemicals and toxins in the body. Quercetin significantly affects the pharmacokinetics of caffeine and its main metabolite paraxanthine and thus can significantly inhibit the caffeine metabolism and CYP1A2 activity (Xiao et al., 2014).
Consuming foods rich in Quercetin or supplementing 500mg of Quercetin can help extend and prolong the effects of caffeine in the body via reducing it’s excretion/metabolism.
