Bioflavonoids are essentially the plant pigments responsible for the color of fruit and vegetables. Bioflavonoids have an amazing ability to modify the body's ability in its reaction to allergens, bacteria and viruses. They are excellent antioxidants.
Quercetin, the backbone of many flavonoids, has been shown to be an inhibitor of histamine release, an inhibitor of aldose reductase (enzyme responsible for conversion of blood sugar to sorbitol) and an enhancer of insulin secretion. Quercetin is also recommended during the cold and flu season for immune support.
Other Functions of Flavonoids
Strengthening blood capillary walls. If a capillary’s walls are too fragile they will allow blood to drain out of the vessels and into the cells. The result of this is easy bruising, brain and retinal hemorrhages, bleeding gums and other abnormalities.
