Along with piperine as Bioenhancer, proven in many cases there are many other natural constituent which possess Bioenhancer property. There is a vast array of unexploited plants which can be investigated for their drug bioenhancing potency. This article reviewed and emphasizes on the biopotentiator property of Quercetin.
