How does it work?
Naringin is a flavonoid found in grapefruits. On its own, Naringin has little benefit. However, it does interfere with enzymes responsible for the breakdown of many nutrients, increasing the blood level of certain compounds by enhancing both their oral uptake and increasing their half-life in the body [1].
Who is it used for?
Naringin is suitable for anyone who wants to increase the absorption and effectiveness of the supplements they use. Taking Naringin at the same time as other nutrients, especially those designed to promote weight loss by elevating the metabolic rate - such as Forskolin or Guggulsterones - increases the length of time these nutrients remain in your body.
How does it work?
Naringin is a flavonoid found in grapefruits, and gives grapefruit its characteristic bitter flavor. Grapefruit processors attempt to select fruits with a low naringin content, and often blend juices obtained from different grapefruit varieties to obtain the desired degree of bitterness. Naringin is believed to enhance our perception of taste by stimulating the taste buds (some people consume a small amount of grapefruit juice before a meal for this reason).

On its own, Naringin has very little benefit. However, studies shown that naringin interferes with enzymatic activity in the intestines and, thus, with the breakdown of certain nutrients resulting in higher blood levels [1, 2]. Approximately 25 milligrams of Naringin is needed to enhance both the bioavailability and half-life of nutrients consumed with it.
How do I use it?
Approximately 25 milligrams of Naringin is needed to enhance the half-life of nutrients consumed with it. You can drink grapefruit juice at the same time as taking a supplement. However, because grapefruit processors often select fruits with a low naringin content, it's better to use a supplement that already contains naringin.
What results can I expect?
The main benefit of Naringin is that the active ingredients contained in a supplement will remain in your body for a longer period of time, which means you don't need to take dozens of capsules and pills every day.
What can it be combined with?
Naringin enhances both the oral uptake and half-life in the body of nutrients such as Forskolin or Guggulsterones. Approximately 20-25 milligrams of Naringin is needed to produce this effect.
