The Benefits of Flavanoids

The Benefits of Flavanoids

A recent meta-analysis indicates that the intake of flavonoids may contribute to the wellbeing of skeletal muscles, aiding in the prevention of muscle loss and enhancement of overall physical function. Found in foods like black and green tea, berries (blueberries, strawberries), citrus fruits, onions, apples, grapes, and cocoa, flavonoids seem to possess protective properties, acting as a defense against age-related muscle decline. This suggests that the consumption of flavonoids could potentially thwart muscle loss and promote muscle growth. While further research is necessary, scientists speculate that flavonoids might boost muscle protein synthesis, improve mitochondrial function, and enhance blood flow to muscles, all contributing to potential benefits.
