What are the benefits of bioflavonoids?
Bioflavonoids are antioxidants. You may already be familiar with antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E and carotenoids. These compounds may protect your cells from free radical damage. Free radicals are toxins in the body that can damage healthy cells. When this happens, it is called oxidative stress.
Other antioxidants, like flavonoids, may not be found in high concentrations in the bloodstream alone. But they may affect the transport or activity of more powerful antioxidants, like vitamin C, throughout the body. In fact, Cosmo Cee contain both vitamin C and Citrus Bioflavonoids together for this reason.
Researchers share that bioflavonoids may help with a number of health issues. They have the potential to be used therapeutically or protectively. Flavonoids may also influence the ability of vitamin C to be absorbed and utilized by the body.
The antioxidant power of flavonoids is well documented in different studies. In one overview, researchers explain that antioxidants like flavonoids work in a variety of ways. They can:
- interfere with the enzymes that create free radicals, which suppresses reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation
- scavenge free radicals, meaning they deactivate these bad molecules before they cause damage
- protect and even increase antioxidant defenses in the body
When antioxidants stop free radicals in their tracks, cancer, aging, and other diseases may be either slowed or prevented.
Allergic diseases may respond well to taking in more bioflavonoids. This includes:
- atopic dermatitis
- allergic rhinitis
- allergic asthma
Development of allergic diseases is often associated with excess oxidative stress on the body. Flavonoids may help to scavenge free radicals and stabilize the reactive oxygen species. This can lead to fewer allergic reactions. They may also reduce inflammatory responses that contribute to diseases like asthma.
So far, the research has suggested that flavonoids — along with improved diet habits — show potential for fighting allergic diseases.
Coronary heart disease (coronary artery disease) is another health issue that involves oxidative stress and inflammation. The antioxidants in flavonoids may protect your heart and lower your risk of death according to one study. Even small amounts of dietary flavonoids may lower the risk of coronary heart disease death.
Other research shows that bioflavonoids may lower your risk for both coronary artery disease and stroke.
Nervous system support
Flavonoids may protect nerve cells from damage. They may even help with regeneration of nerve cells outside the brain and spinal cord. Most research has focused on chronic diseases thought to be caused by oxidative stress, such as dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease. In these cases, flavonoids may help delay onset, especially when taken long term.
Flavonoids may also help with blood flow to the brain. This may help to prevent stroke. Better blood flow may also mean better brain function or even improved cognitive function.
