Phytochemicals are naturally occurring plant chemicals (phyto means plant in Greek). They provide plants with color, odor and flavor. Once we eat them, however, research shows they can influence the chemical processes inside our bodies in helpful ways.
Findings from laboratory studies have shown that phytochemicals have the potential to:
Stimulate the immune system. Block substances we eat, drink and breathe from becoming carcinogens. Reduce the kind of inflammation that makes cancer growth more likely. Prevent DNA damage and help with DNA repair. Reduce the kind of oxidative damage to cells that can spark cancer. Slows the growth rate of cancer cells. Trigger damaged cells to commit suicide before they can reproduce and help to regulate hormones.
Bioflavonoids are a group of naturally occurring plant compounds, which act primarily as plant pigments and antioxidants. They exhibit a host of biological activities, most notably for their powerful antioxidant properties.
Bioflavonoids work with other antioxidants to offer a system of protection. Numerous studies have shown their unique role in protecting vitamin C from oxidation in the body, thereby allowing the body to reap more benefits from vitamin C.
Bioflavonoids are present in all botanical supplement products and foods. In fact, many medicinal herbs owe their curative actions to the bioflavonoids they contain. Besides the important antioxidant effects, bioflavonoids help the body maintain health and function in many ways.
