Bioflavonoids are metabolites often found in plants and therefore often consumed in our diet. Scientists have managed to identify around 4,000–8,000 of these compounds, which we can also find in fruits, vegetables, and dark chocolate.
Citrus bioflavonoids is more commonly found as pigments (colouring) in citrus fruits, such as tangerines, oranges and grapefruit.
The primary characteristic of citrus bioflavonoids reside within their potent antioxidative effect. By reducing the number of free radicals and protecting your cells from damage, bioflavonoids can help to reduce the risk of many diseases including heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and certain types of cancer.
Benefits of Citrus Bioflavonoids
The vast majority of the benefits attributed to citrus bioflavonoids stem from their potent anti-oxidative properties.
A number of studies have shown that that these compounds found in citrus fruits exert a synergetic effect on inflammation and oxidative stress.
The results of these effects can lead to stronger capillary walls, faster healing and increased immune function. Citrus bioflavonoids can also help to improve blood circulation, joint health and cognitive function.
The anti-inflammatory benefit of bioflavonoids is particularly important in preventing heart disease as they have shown to fight hardening of the arteries. Research on bioflavonoids is continuously expanding and results have been promising.
Taking supplements with citrus bioflavonoids can help to improve your overall health and lower your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other ailments.
