What are Flavonoids?
The name flavonoids refers to a group of compounds whose members have a similar chemical backbone and are found mainly in the peel and seeds of fruits and vegetables. Flavonoids are produced by plants for their own protection.
It is important to know about the physiological effects of flavonoids, that they act mainly in the digestive and circulatory systems and are absorbed in the intestinal tract. It neutralizes free radicals, ie they have an antioxidant effect, reduce the risk of atherosclerosis. They inhibit thrombosis, increase the elasticity of blood vessel walls. They have an effect on sootome lesions (mutagenesis) and the process of developing malignancies (carcinogenesis).
They lower LDL (“bad” cholesterol) and blood fat (serum tridlyceride) levels. They have a liver and sunscreen effect. They are anti-inflammatory, prevent long-term complications of diabetes mellitus, and have antiviral, antibacterial effects.
Watch a short introductory video about flavonoids:
How long have we known about Flavonoids?
In 1936, Albert Szent-Györgyi and István Rusznyák were the first to show that two flavonoids (rutin, naringenin) from citrus fruits reduce the fragility and permeability of capillaries, which is why rutin was first named vitamin P. Since then, science has isolated thousands of similar compounds.
What are Flavonoids good for?
Flavonoids increase the body’s antioxidant capacity, which can reduce the cell-destroying effects of free radicals. They support the optimal operation of the defense system.
Red grapes can help the vascular system to function optimally, improve circulation. Through its antioxidant properties, it can help protect cells from the destructive effects of free radicals.
What is an antioxidant effect and what are free radicals?
The antioxidant property of a substance means its ability to bind and neutralize free radicals.
Free radicals are extremely unstable and “aggressive” molecules that try to oxidize cells.
If they are excessively present in our bodies, they can damage vital biological molecules — in the worst case, DNA. This is called oxidative stress.
– Quercetin derivatives have been shown to provide broad-spectrum protection against a wide range of viruses.
– Quercetin has a strong immune-boosting and broad-spectrum antiviral effect. It inhibits the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines, which may be beneficial as severe infection and subsequent death are due to storm activity of the cytokines.
– Quercetin also stabilizes mast cells and has a direct regulatory effect on the basic functional properties of immune cells, either by downregulation or by suppressing many inflammations and functions.
– Quercetin in red wine is one of the strongest known antitumor substances besides resveratrol, which directly inhibits the division and proliferation of malignant cells.
– Prevents atherosclerosis.
– Antihypertensive effect.
– Inhibitory effect on colon and rectal tumor cell lines.
– Inhibitor of bacterial growth (Helicobacter pylori).
How does Quercetin inhibit viral infection?
One of the most studied properties of quercetin is its antiviral ability, which is attributed to three main mechanisms of action:
– Inhibition of the cell’s ability to infect cells.
– Inhibition of replication of already infected cells.
– Reduction of antiviral drug resistance in infected cells.
Research funded by the U.S. Department of Defense, published in 2007, has shown that quercetin reduces the risk of viral diseases. Which can otherwise undermine the effectiveness of the immune system and make it more prone to infections due to extreme physical stress.
Another DARPA-funded study published in 2008 by the U.S. Department of Defense’s research department reported that quercetin-treated animals were infected with the highly pathogenic H1N1 influenza virus. The treatment group had significantly lower morbidity and mortality than the placebo-treated group.
Other studies have confirmed the efficacy of quercetin against a wide range of viruses.
It has gained a controversial reputation since its discovery and in related laboratory tests, as it became known first as a mutagen and then as an effective anticancer compound. Quercetin in red wine is one of the strongest known antitumor substances besides resveratrol, which directly inhibits the division and proliferation of malignant cells.
It exerts this by stimulating apoptosis. Modification and inhibition of the activity of various enzymes.
Resveratrol and quercetin are effective in inhibiting the growth and proliferation of oral epithelial carcinomas.
Apigenin and quercetin inhibit the growth of melanoma. Quercetin inhibits P21-RAS expression in a primary human colon and rectal cell line.
