Quercetin is a flavonoid found in fruits (e.g. cranberries, blueberries, grapes, apples) and vegetables (e.g. onions, peppers), especially in their peel portions. Quercetin supplementation has previously been associated with enhanced endurance capacity and improved endothelial function in humans. To date, the effects of quercetin on performance are ambiguous. However, a recent review reported that quercetin has the potential to improve performance by 2.8% in healthy individuals. Recent studies on an enzymatically modified isoquercetin (EMIQ) indicate that this form of quercetin has enhanced bioavailability even compared to isoquercetin and quercetin. No studies to date have examined the potential benefits of EMIQ on athletic performance. Considering the increased bioavailability of EMIQ, performance benefits may even be observed with lower supplementation dosages and/or shorter loading protocols.
- Can EMIQ supplementation improve simulated cycling time-trial performance in well-trained cyclists?
