1. Anti Oxidant

Nearly every type of Flavanoid has some ability to act as an antioxidant. Free radicals and reactive oxygen species are produced during normal oxygen metabolism, these continuously damage body cells and tissues. Due to their antioxidant abilities Flavanoids can assist in reducing the damage that free radicals do to your body.

2. Anti Inflammatory

Inflammation can be a significant issue as you get older. It also plays a key role in illnesses such as cancer and diabetes. Several studies have found a wide range of

benefits of Flavonoids in treating inflammation including:

  • Inhibit tumor cell growth

  • modulate carbohydrate and lipid metabolism

  • insulin resistance

  • control mediators involved in inflammation.

3. Cardiovascular Health

Cardiovascular disease was responsible for 27% of deaths in Australia. Flavonoids have been shown to provide benefits against illnesses such as hypertension. As discussed above Flavonoids have great antioxidant properties, which help with oxidation against the 'bad' cholesterol. They also have the ability to help with blood vessel dilation (vasodilation). Flavonoids have also been shown to both, directly and indirectly, assist with blood pressure regulation.


4. Diabetes

Diabetes is the fastest-growing disease in the world. Brought on by unhealthy diets full of saturated fats, and sugars, and a decrease in physical activities. Foods rich in Flavonoids can help regulate carbohydrate digestion, insulin secretion, signaling, and glucose uptake. In particular, they target cells in the pancreas that makes insulin, promote insulin secretion and reduce apoptosis (cell death).

Brain Sketch

Due to their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, Flavonoids are effective against free radicals which can damage brain cells. In animal studies, Flavonoids have been shown to block beta-amyloid plaque build-up, which is a common sign of Alzheimer's disease. They may also increase blood flow to the brain which provides benefits to the cardiovascular system and brain. Early human studies seem to replicate these findings, however more research is required.

These are just 5 of the multitude of great benefits that Flavonoids can provide to you.
