All About Flavonoids
Flavonoids are naturally-occurring phytonutrients in plant pigments. These bioactive compounds are found in various vegetables, fruits, spices, and nuts, and they provide a wealth of health benefits when consumed.
Stock your fridge with vibrantly colored fruits and vegetables such as beets, carrots, lemons, and raspberries. These vibrant foods are rich with flavonoids and nutrients.
Why are flavonoids a key ingredient to living well?
The antioxidant properties of flavonoids help to ward off the harmful effects of free radicals, which have been linked to the development of various chronic diseases.
In addition to its antioxidant capabilities, flavonoids have anti-inflammatory characteristics that are effective in lowering cholesterol levels, decreasing the risk of ischemic heart disease, and preventing blood clots.
A flavonoid-rich diet has been linked to a lessened risk of developing neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s.
Flavonoids are found in herbs and spices, including garlic, rosemary, and oregano. Studies have shown that the consumption of flavonoids has been effective at improving the function of the vascular system in those with type-2 diabetes.
There are limited studies performed on human subjects, but animal studies link flavonoids with inhibiting the development of cancerous cells in the colon and liver.
Flavonoids may be linked to improved bone formation and limited bone resorption. This not only strengthens the bones but also helps to prevent the development of conditions such as osteoporosis.
While there is not significant regarding the connection of flavonoids to weight management, a study from The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that women with higher flavonoid consumption exhibited lower levels of body fat than those without a flavonoid-rich diet.
Due to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties alone, flavonoids are important factors of a healthy lifestyle. Make sure to incorporate foods that are rich in flavonoids into your diet to gain some of these healthy benefits!
