Flavonoids: The Power in Food

Why are fruits and veggies so good for us? Look no further than the beneficial colored molecules called flavonoids! They occur naturally in tea, chocolate, and spices as well. While they have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, they are capable of so much more.

Research results showing flavonoids support:

  • Protective effects on arteries, nerves, and the brain
  • Neutralization of the highly reactive, harmful molecules that form continuously in the body (free radicals)
  • Boosting stem cells in the body and brain that support repair and good function
  • Normal glucose and insulin function
  • Normal blood pressure

Outstanding flavonoids (and where to find them):

  • Resveratrol/Pterostilbene in blueberries and red wine
  • EGCG in green and white tea
  • Apigenin in parsley
  • Luteolin in celery
