Abstract: Ever wonder where blueberries, plums, beets, and all of those wonderful deep blue and purple fruits and veggies get their vibrant colors from? Flavonoids! Flavonoids are fantastic for our health, and balance. They act as antioxidants in the body which help to ward off free radicals which in turn helps to prevent oxidative damage to cells. Flavonoids are so powerful, powerful enough that they can actually participate in metabolism, help with the use of calcium in our bodies, and help with inflammation. Flavonoids also help with a whole handful of other diseases and conditions. How do we get flavonoids in our diets you may ask? It’s is simple as increasing our intake of delicious fruits, and herbal teas.
