OBJECTIVE Quercetin bioavailability exhibits high interindividual variation for reasons that remain unclear. We conducted a 24-h pharmacokinetic study to investigate whether individual differences in circulating antioxidants, oxidative stress and inflammation, and intestinal permeability affect quercetin bioavailability. METHODS Healthy adults (n = 9 M/7 F; 34.3 ± 4.5 y; 27.0 ± 1.7 kg/m(2)) ingested 1095 mg quercetin aglycone with a standardized meal. Plasma antioxidants, biomarkers of… CONTINUE READING
