Rutaecarpine is extracted from the evodia rutaecarpa plant. This supplement’s primary benefit is negating the effects of caffeine in your system. This is useful if you need to sleep after a day of drinking coffee or taking caffeine supplements.
Decaffeinate with Rutaecarpine
In one animal study, rutaecarpine reduced the systemic exposure of caffeine and its metabolites: paraxanthine and theobromine. The study suggested that rutaecarpine increases the metabolism of caffeine.
How to Take
Measure 100mg and mix the powder in a drink or take the powder straight. This product does not include a scoop. However, a scant (less than level) 1/8 tsp is roughly equivalent to 100mg. The taste is mild to slightly bitter so a sweetener may not be necessary. Rutaecarpine powder does not mix well in water and will float on top of the drink.
Powdered rutaecarpine is tough to find. The only other source seems to be a branded encapsulated version on Amazon.
