As common constituents of tomatoes and other fruits and/or vegetables, naringenin and quercetin are usually ingested together, so for a clearer understanding of their bioavailability, metabolic fates and health benefits, it is more insightful to study them together. The purpose of the present work was to study how co-administration of naringenin and quercetin at realistic doses (3.5 μg ml(-1) and 2.36 μg ml(-1), respectively) influences their absorption and intestinal first-pass metabolism.

Variability in the Beneficial Effects of Phenolic Compounds: A Review
When analysing the beneficial effects of phenolic compounds, several factors that exert a clear influence should be taken into account. The content of phenolic compounds in foods is highly variable,
Acute Effect of a Single Dose of Tomato Sofrito on Plasmatic Inflammatory Biomarkers in Healthy Men
The positive health effects of this tomato-based product may be attributed not only to lycopene, but to the bioactive compounds of all the ingredients.
Intestinal disposition of quercetin and its phase‐II metabolites after oral administration in healthy volunteers
This study aimed to investigate the intestinal metabolism and metabolite excretion of quercetin by the human small intestinal wall after oral dosing.
Double-responsive hyaluronic acid-based prodrugs for efficient tumour targeting.
Dietary Flavonols and O-Glycosides
The pharmacokinetics of flavanones
Knowledge of the pharmacokinetics of flavanones, in particular of metabolites, their achievable plasma concentration and half-lives, should be borne in mind when their biological effects are investigated.


High gastrointestinal permeability and local metabolism of naringenin: influence of antibiotic treatment on absorption and metabolism
Naringenin was well absorbed throughout the gastrointestinal tract and its poor bioavailability was due mainly to high intestinal metabolism.
Relative bioavailability of the flavonoids quercetin, hesperetin and naringenin given simultaneously through diet
The bioavailability and urinary excretion of three dietary flavonoids, quercetin, hesperetin and naringenin, were investigated and it is shown that this is not due to a lower bioavailability, but rather reflects different clearance mechanisms.
Absorption/metabolism of sulforaphane and quercetin, and regulation of phase II enzymes, in human jejunum in vivo.
The results show that food components have the potential to modify drug metabolism in the human enterocyte in vivo very rapidly.
Pharmacokinetics and Bioavailability of Quercetin Glycosides in Humans
The disposition of quercetin in humans primarily depends on the sugar moiety, and to a minor extent, the plant matrix influences both the rate and extent of absorption in the case of buckwheat tea administration compared with the isolated compound.
Pharmacokinetics and Modeling of Quercetin and Metabolites
The pharmacokinetic model appears to be suitable for describing the absorption and disposition of the quercetin and its conjugates and may be applicable to other flavonoids that undergo similar pharmacokinetics pathways.
Intra-herb pharmacokinetics interaction between quercetin and isorhamentin
P-gp might play an important role, whereas other drug efflux pumps, such as multi-drug resistance associate protein 2 and breast cancer resistance protein, might be involved in the cell efflux of isorhamnetin.
Rat gastrointestinal tissues metabolize quercetin.
The unique pattern of quercetin metabolites in each GI tissue indicates extensive biotransformation before absorption and distribution in rats, suggesting that the in vivo bioactivity of quERCetin may be due to its metabolites.
Simultaneous ingestion of high-methoxy pectin from apple can enhance absorption of quercetin in human subjects.
It is suggested that the viscosity of pectin may play a role in the enhancement of quercetin absorption, and that its enhancing effect was dependent on the dose and degree of pECTin methylation.
