What are Flavonoids?

Phytonutrients ( Anti Oxidants found in plant life) comes from the Greek word “phyto” meaning plant. There are thousands of chemicals found in plants called Phytonutrients or Phytochemicals which help fight against pollution and various diseases. Flavonoids are one class of Phytonutrients found in plants and provide them with their colourful pigments. There are about 4,000+ types of flavonoids. 

  Sommon common flavonoids are
1. Anthocyanins
2. Flavanols
3. Isoflavones
4. Flavonols

Plants are affected by environmental conditions which change through the year. The yield of Flavonoids in summer for leafy vegetables is far more higher than in other seasons. Some Flavonoids like pears and red cabbage offer the same Flavonoids content throughout the year. Cooking seems to reduce the effect of Flavonoids and hence they are better had in Smoothies or juices.

Why you should eat different coloured foods?

For a healthy lifestyle, ensure that you get an assortment of Flavonoids in your diet and not focus only on one source as each food has its own strength. There are thousands of chemicals found in plants which help fight against various bacteria and virus and pollution. Flavonoids are a strong antioxidant which helps our body fight harmful free radicals. Hence, eating a diet from plant based foods will help you get the benefits of these rich nutrients.

The richer the assorted colour of fruits and vegetables on your plate, the healthier it is for you. Dark green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale etc, other veggies like onion, tomato, ginger and garlic, berries like Blueberry, Strawberry will give you strong antioxidant benefits and help ward of cancer and provide fibre and potassium. Lentils such as Moong Dal, Urad Dal will provide good protein along with antioxidants on the table for Vegetarians. So the list goes on. Avoid processed food and stay away from sugar which is the key cause of body inflammation.
