Abstract

The relationship between diet and health has long been known. An important group of biologically active compounds in foods are polyphenols that occur in plants and are not produced in humans or animals. Bioflavonoids, also known as flavonoids, are water-soluble, plant-based pigments that exhibit antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, antiallergic, antiviral, and anticarcinogenic properties. Human body does not synthesize flavonoids and the only way to benefit from their therapeutic potential is through supplementation.

Keywords:
