Vitamin A, Vitamin B, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B12, C, D, and a list that can go on and on, can tend to set your mind into a tizzy. But have you ever heard of Vitamin P? Vitamin P is a term that was once used for a group of plant compounds called flavonoids or bioflavonoids (bio as in plant-based). These compounds are not actually vitamins but compounds found in fruits, vegetables, tea, cocoa, and wine. They give certain foods their colour, provide plants with UV protection and protect them against infections, and offer several health benefits[1]. Here’s your chance to buckle up and get set to tread on a journey through the colourful world of plant compounds that will help you to revolutionise your health and wellness routine. So, grab your favourite fruit and let's dive right in!

So what exactly are Bioflavonoids?

Flavonoids, also known as Bioflavonoids, are a family of polyphenol plant compounds with six subclasses. There are currently over 6,000 known flavonoids[2]. Flavonoids exist in plants to help prevent infection, protect against the sun and environmental stresses, and attract insects for pollination. They’re also responsible for the colour of many deep-coloured fruits and vegetables, such as berries, cherries, and tomatoes.

The "P" stands for "permeability," a reference to their role in maintaining the health and ability to permeate into capillaries, the smallest blood vessels in our bodies, for better bioavailability. From fighting inflammation, supporting heart health to boosting immunity, these versatile compounds are true rockstars when it comes to promoting our overall well-being.

There are several kinds of flavonoids. From ANTHOCYANINS to FLAVONOLS to FLAVONES, each member of the flavonoid family brings its own unique set of talents to the table. Whether you're sipping on a cup of green tea , munching on a handful of berries, or sprinkling herbs and spices into your favourite dish, you're sure to be reaping the benefits of these powerful plant compounds.

But perhaps the most exciting part of all is the rich array of flavonoid-rich foods just waiting to be discovered. When it comes to incorporating these nutrient-packed powerhouses into your diet the options are endless (from vibrant fruits like berries, citrus fruits, and apples to colourful veggies like spinach and onions)

And let's not forget about the role of flavonoids as ANTIOXIDANTS—those mighty defenders of your cells against the ravages of oxidative stress. By scavenging free radicals and reducing inflammation, flavonoids help to keep your body running like a well-oiled machine and ward off disease and illness.

And what about supplements? While getting your daily dose of flavonoids from whole foods is always the best option, the right supplements can be a more convenient way to fill in any nutritional gaps in your diet. Just be sure to choose high-quality supplements from reputable sources to ensure maximum efficacy and safety.

Here are the benefits and how they help your body:

Antioxidant Properties​:  Bioflavonoids have antioxidant effects, which means they help protect cells from damage caused by harmful molecules called free radicals. By neutralising harmful free radicals, these compounds contribute to the protection of cellular structures and DNA integrity.

Anti-Inflammatory Effects​: Bioflavonoids have anti-inflammatory properties that may help reduce inflammation in the body.

Cardiovascular Health​: Compounds like quercetin found mostly in onions, grapes, berries, cherries, broccoli, and citrus fruits have been studied for their potential to promote heart health by improving blood vessel function, reducing blood pressure, and influencing cholesterol metabolism.

​Immune Support​: Bioflavonoids are thought to have immune-boosting effects by supporting the immune system's function and helping the body defend against infections and illnesses.

Allergy Relief​: Quercetin, in particular, has been studied for its potential to help manage allergy symptoms by stabilising cells that release histamines responsible for allergic reactions.

Regulates blood sugar​: As per a health report[3], consumption of 300 mg of flavonoids reduced the risk of diabetes by 5%. It's role in ensuring cardiovascular health is another reason why those with diabetes or those who are at the risk of developing diabetes should consume it on a daily basis.
