Key Market Trends

Flavonoid Application Used in Anti-Cancer Drug​

The increasing use of anthocyanin as a coloring agent in the food & beverage industry is the major driving factor. Various studies have depicted that scientists of various countries have suspected catechins might be useful in aiding chronic fatigue syndrome symptoms. Catechins are also associated with cardiovascular and neurological health. ​The rising interest in dietary flavonoids owing to their beneficial health factors comes up from the consumption of vegetables and fruits led to the producers of food commodities filled with flavonoids. Though flavonoids exhibit powerful antioxidant activity, they exist in a relatively low concentration in the bloodstream when compared to antioxidants, like vitamin C and vitamin E, according to World’s Healthiest Foods. This may lower their overall antioxidant power and, thus, lessen their cancer-fighting effects. ​ Flavonoids are used in numerous applications such as functional food and beverages, nutraceuticals, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals. In animal systems, plant-produced flavonoids are important dietary components and are known to possess a broad range of properties, including antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and anticancer properties.
