EnduraQ is a new supplement containing EMIQⓇ, a superior form of the flavonoid quercetin. Quercetin is a flavonoid found in fruits and vegetables that has unique biological properties. Numerous preclinical studies suggest quercetin has biological characteristics that may improve mental and physical performance, including endurance exercise capabilities. It may also assist the human immune system to reduce infection risk associated with prolonged exercise.
This article specifically examines the scientific literature concerning the role of quercetin in health, performance and nutrition. The beneficial properties of quercetin are discussed. These properties include anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and psychostimulant activity, as well as the ability to stimulate mitochondrial biogenesis (the process by which new mitochondria are formed in the cell).

The preclinical studies discussed in this article provide good evidence to support the benefits of quercetin on various chronic diseases like cardiovascular, metabolic (e.g., type II diabetes) and neurodegenerative diseases, and cancer. The beneficial effects of quercetin are largely dependent on its bioavailability after it is taken orally, so the absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion of quercetin have been studied extensively in both laboratory animals and humans. Initial reports indicated that bioavailability of quercetin was limited, but EnduraQ has been shown to be 17.5x more absorbable by the body.
