Citrus Fruits Contain Life-giving Flavonoids

citrusI don’t know about you, but I love citrus fruits. Life becomes easier when we love healthy things.

Citrus fruits such as tangerines, grapefruits and oranges contain antioxidant flavonoids which have been found to combat the onset of cerebrovascular disease. This is according to the American Heart Association. This could potentially mean that people who are taking medication for heart and cerebrovascular disease could start to cut back on medications for these illnesses.

Joint research carried out by Norwich Medical School in England and Harvard University in Boston confirmed that citrus fruit was beneficial for people in helping to minimize the onset of strokes.

The data was collated over fourteen years and research was done on more than 70 000 females who worked in the nursing industry. Women who ate citrus fruit were 19 percent less likely to incur a stroke than those women who ate very little or no citrus fruit.

The conclusion was unanimous; the flavonoids were helpful in reducing the risk of strokes in the subjects.

The good news is that  flavonoids are found in a range of herbs, vegetables and fruits

They promote healthy circulation as they dilate the blood vessels in the body. They also contain anti-inflammatory properties, which benefit people with inflammatory type conditions such as arthritis. Flavonoids have been associated with minimizing the onset and spread of certain types of cancer as well.

The data regarding cancer is supported by study conducted sometime ago, which revealed that eating citrus fruit would reduce colon, laryngeal and oral cancer significantly.

Citrus fruit increases the supply of vitamin C at a cellular level

This strengthens the immune system and the blood vessels. Vitamin C helps to reduce the occurrence of bruising as well.

If you do not like citrus fruits, you can source these life-giving flavonoids from other sources. Ginkgo bilboa, mixed carotenoids, citrus bioflavonoids and Quercetin contain these extremely useful flavonoids.

Citrus fruits do taste nice, but they are not always readily available as they are seasonable. Children generally love citrus fruit and it is a good idea to get children eating healthy foods from a young age. In this way, we can help to create a healthy generation of people in the years to come.
