Bioflavonoids, also known as flavonoids, are a collection of naturally existing polyphenolic compounds all over the plant kingdom. They are produced by plants for protection against predators and are a natural antioxidant. They are also responsible for the natural color of plants and fruits. There are about 5000 different known varieties of flavonoids that are used for different purposes, such as supplements, medicine, and health.
Flavonoids are the most common group of polyphenolic compounds present in our diet and function majorly to boost our immune system and help protect us from diseases. They are found in several plants around us and are subdivided into flavonols, flavones, flavanols, flavanones, anthocyanidins, proanthocyanidins, and isoflavones. We can consume a tremendous amount of bioflavonoids in food because they are widely distributed in plant crops.
Flavonoids usually accompany vitamin C in fruit and vegetables and might influence its absorption and utilization by the body. Their other critical biological functions include:
Our immune system can be altered by the diet we take, naturally occurring food chemicals and environmental pollutants. One of the major pharmacological effects of flavonoids is their capacity to affect inflammatory processes and functions of the immune system. Ultimately, bioflavonoids are immune boosters and are regarded as health-promoting or disease-preventing dietary compounds. They possess antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and anti-allergic activities that function together for the body's adequate biological activities.
Flavonoids can be easily obtained from our diets because they are the most common and widely distributed group of plant phenolics. Their sources include fruit skins, red wine, buckwheat, red pepper, and tomato skin, onion, olive oil, berries, and grapefruit, cherry, raspberry, and strawberry, citrus fruits, grapefruits, lemons, and oranges, soybean, and tea.
Bioflavonoids are essential for our body as they equip us with the right biological compounds for maintaining appropriate immunity.
