Cache REST API responses and speed up WordPress REST API requests

Then if you want to always view uncached REST API responses you can add the following line to the request header:

Cache-Control: private or Cache-Control: no-cache

Apart from caching the response, there are also a few more methods to speed up WP REST API response time, here are some useful guides:
