Blueberries are just one example of the many foods out there containing flavonoids. Other flavonoid rich foods include grapes, cherries, blueberries, plums and other colored fruits. They are also found in onions, kale, broccoli, greens, citrus fruits, tea and apples. There is growing evidence that these foods protect us from cancer, from the effects of aging, including the onset of Alzheimers. These amazing substances can improve the immune system, reduce cholesterol, and may help to heal or improve conditions like diabetes, macular degeneration, hypertension, strokes and much more. Join us as we speak with Dr. Nita Bishop, naturopathic physician who has studied and researched flavonoids extensively. Dr. Bishop strongly believes that food is our medicine. She has spent time in the Amazon rainforest and promotes education and research of other superfoods like maca as well as a musculoskeletal pain reliever called copaiba oil.
