There are different types of free radicals and reactive oxygen species that are constantly attacking the body. Because only certain kinds of antioxidants quench certain types of radicals, you must get a broad spectrum of antioxidants in your diet. Fortunately, we have available to us today a wide range of very potent antioxidants, which can scavenge and neutralize free radicals before they have a chance to cause disease.

For instance, there are flavonoids, part of a larger group of molecules called polyphenol compounds, that are found in abundance in plants, fruits, vegetables, plant-based beverages, and notably in the pigments of leaves, barks, rinds, seeds, and flowers. Flavonoids:

• Improve memory and concentration and are used to treat attention-deficit disorder.
• Are powerful free radical scavengers that can boost the effectiveness of vitamin C in the antioxidant network.
• Regulate nitric oxide, a potent free radical that is a regulator of blood flow.
• Keep your heart healthy in three important ways. They prevent blood clots, protect against oxidation of LDL cholesterol, and lower high blood pressure.
• Improve sexual function in men.
• Reduce inflammation and bolster immune function.
