What are Flavonoids?

These are oestrogen-like compounds found in plants that act as hormone blockers any place in the body where there are excess hormones that could cause such cancers such as breast cancer.

Flavonoids are also strong antioxidants, which can be found fruits, vegetables, and certain beverages that have diverse beneficial biochemical and antioxidant effects.

Their dietary intake is quite high compared to other dietary antioxidants like vitamins C and E.

The antioxidant activity of flavonoids depends on their molecular structure, and structural characteristics of certain flavonoids found in hops and beer confer surprisingly potent antioxidant activity exceeding that of red wine, tea, or soy products.
