Everything You Need To Know About Flavonoids


what they are + 7 surprising benefits

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, raspberries, and tart cherry. These vibrant foods are rich with flavonoids and nutrients.

Why are flavonoids a key ingredient to living well?

1. Flavonoids protect against free radicals.

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.

2. Flavonoids help to lower the risk of cardiovascular disease.

In addition to its antioxidant capabilities, flavonoids have anti-inflammatory characteristics. 

These are effective in lowering cholesterol levels, decreasing the risk of ischemic heart disease, and preventing blood clots.


3. Flavonoids have been shown to decrease the risk of neurodegenerative disease.

A flavonoid-rich diet has been linked to a lessened risk of developing neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s.

This is also accomplished through flavonoids’ antioxidant abilities. As free radicals move through the body, they damage structures within it – including nerves.

As you age, it becomes more difficult for your body to produce its own antioxidants and keep free radicals in check.

4. Flavonoids can help improve vascular function for those with diabetes.

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.

5. Flavonoids may aid in cancer prevention

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. 

Research also points to flavonoids preventing gastric and pancreatic cancers, among a variety of other types.

6. Flavonoids can improve bone health

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.

7. Flavonoids may help to manage weight

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.
