"Bioflavonoids are a class of water-soluble plant pigments. Bioflavonoids are broken down into subcategories, though the issue of how to divide them is not universally agreed upon. One system breaks bioflavonoids into isoflavones, anthocyanins, flavans, favonols, flavones, and flavanones. Some of the best-known bioflavonoids, such as genistein in soy and quercetin in onions, can be considered subcategories of subcategories. Although they are all structurally related, their functions are different. Bioflavonoids also include hesperidin, rutin, citrus bioflavonoids, and a variety of other supplements.
While they are not considered essential, some bioflavonoids do support health as anti-inflammatory, antihistaminic, and antiviral agents. Quercetin has been reported to block the “sorbitol pathway” that is linked to many problems associated with diabetes. Rutin and several other bioflavonoids may also protect blood vessels.
As antioxidants, some bioflavonoids, such as quercetin, protect LDL-cholesterol from oxidative damage. Others, such as the anthocyanidins from bilberry, may help protect the lens of the eye from cataracts. Animal research suggests that naringenin may have anticancer activity. Soy isoflavones are also currently being studied to see if they help fight cancer."
