@Jesse2233, in the last few days, I have been dissolving my two 40 mg capsules of dihydroquercetin (DHQ) in 15 ml of 40% ethanol (eg, vodka, gin or whisky), and then drinking that. DHQ is much more soluble in ethanol compared to water, so I think this should help improve absorption in the gut. Interestingly enough, I am finding this DHQ dissolved in 40% ethanol makes me feel more tired within an hour or so of taking it (DHQ on its own did not do this). I think this is an indication that I am absorbing much more DHQ by this ethanol method (because I read that tiredness or drowsiness can be a side effect of quercetin, and I presume of dihydroquercetin too). So DHQ dissolved in 15 ml (= one tablespoon) of vodka, gin, etc may be a good way to improve absorption. In a few days, I am going to increase my DHQ dose to 4 x 40 mg capsules, again dissolved in 40% ethanol. By the way, Swanson slightly reduced the amount of DHQ in their capsules from 45 mg to 40 mg.
