Bioflavonoid substances are widely distributed in nature. Onion has a rich content of Quercetin.

Flavonoids are phenolic compounds naturally occurring that are abundantly present in plants and seaweed.

We take it from fruits, vegetables, tea and red wine (as a few examples)

Most important types are: anthocyanins, chalcons, flavonols, flavones, flavonoids and tannins. No risk for toxic nor side-effects in humans have been found.

They appear naturally in the breast milk in amounts related to mother's diet.
