Flavonoids act as strong antioxidants, and our body uses them to reduce the inflammatory reaction, lower high blood pressure, speed up and strengthen blood flow, and fight free radicals that can cause disease and cause aging. They have aroused considerable interest because of research that has shown that the consumption of foods rich in these phytonutrients is associated with a significantly lower risk of developing tumors of the mouth, throat, colon, breast, kidney and ovary.
