Senolytic guru Dr De Keizer says quercetin is useless?

"As for quercetin and dasatinib, I’m absolutely not a fan of those. We’ve tried a couple of experiments; we’ve never seen a good result. Campisi’s lab has tried it extensively, and they said that quercetin actually prevents senescence. It upregulates stress responses through antioxidants and promoting DNA repair."

Is he saying quercetin doesn't act as a senolytic?

    Certainly this study shows Quercetin to be rather wimpy as a senolytic.

  • Actually, not sure why Quercetin is still used and has such demand. Firstly, it is toxic and secondly there is a better version of it which is siberian dihydroquercetin. Aren't there studies about their differences? I see a lot of posts here about quercetin and almost non about siberian dihydroquercetin.
