Hi friends, in today’s topic, we will be discussing about the phytomarker compounds that are responsible for the positive actions of our products.
Flavonoids are group of polyphenolic secondary metabolites found in plants, which are of immense help to maintain our health when consumed in right quantities.
Flavonoids are rich in antioxidants and can help your body ward off everyday toxins. Including more flavonoids in your diet is a great way to help your body stay healthy and potentially decrease your risk of some chronic health conditions.
Flavonoids help regulate cellular activity and fight off free radicals that cause oxidative stress on your body. In simpler terms, they help your body function more efficiently while protecting it against everyday toxins and stressors.
Flavonoids are also powerful antioxidant agents. Antioxidants help your body fight off potentially harmful molecules that can be introduced to the body.
There has been increasing interest in the research on flavonoids from plant sources because of their versatile health benefits reported in various epidemiological studies. Recent trends suggest that these flavonoids are helpful in maintaining the heart Health.
Mechanisms of antioxidant action of these flavonoids can include:
(1) Suppression of ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species) formation either by inhibition of enzymes or by chelating trace elements involved in free radical generation;
(2) Scavenging ROS;
(3) Upregulation or protection of antioxidant defences
Inflammation is a normal biological process in response to tissue injury, microbial pathogen infection, and chemical irritation. Inflammation is initiated by migration of immune cells from blood vessels and release of mediators at the site of damage. This process is followed by recruitment of inflammatory cells, release of ROS, RNS (Reactive Nitrogen Species), and pro-inflammatory cytokines to eliminate foreign pathogens, and repairing of injured tissues. In general, normal inflammation is rapid and self-limiting, but aberrant resolution and prolonged inflammation cause various chronic disorders.
The immune system can be modified by diet, pharmacologic agents, environmental pollutants, and naturally occurring food chemicals. Certain members of flavonoids significantly affect the function of the immune system and inflammatory cells.
Flavonoids may affect specifically the function of enzyme systems critically involved in the generation of inflammatory processes, especially tyrosine and serine-threonine protein kinases.
Prevention and cure of diseases using phytochemicals especially flavonoids are well known. Fruits and vegetables are natural sources of flavonoids. Variety of flavonoids found in the nature, possesses their own physical, chemical, and physiological properties.
It is the unique combination of such ingredients in our Viva products that delivers you the right of amount of such flavonoids, to have a healthy body status. It is the unique methodology of blending these ingredients, integrated with a favourable delivery platform that makes our products unique, is delivering these flavonoids.
