What are Evidence-based dose intervals?
Answer: Some medications need to be taken more frequently than others. This is due to the complex interplay of how substances are processed and eliminated from the body. Quercetin for example has a ‘half life’ of 11-28 hours. This means that it could take as little as 11 hours for half the substance to be eliminated from the body. Using twice daily dosing can help to ensure active ingredients are working in the body at all times of the day. This is also useful to help decrease the potential side effects (such as nausea) which can occur when taking larger single doses.
