Foods high in flavonoids include tomatoes, strawberries, apples, parsley, orange juice, soy proteins, grapefruit, spinach, green, white and black teas, apricots, dark/bitter chocolate, red wine, onions, purple cabbage, broccoli, grapes, raspberries, elderberries, black beans or you can take supplements – some call them bioflavonoids. Although, I prefer getting it right from the foods – thatâ€™s the best and the most tastiest!!! Note: Cooking reduces the amount of flavonoids present in the foods.
*Remember as with anything always eat/drink in moderation!! Too much of anything is not good for you. And be sure to always consult your doctor for pre-existing and current conditions before trying natural remedies.
