    This podcast,
    http://media.blubrry.com/healthbuzz/p/www.jim.md/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011_04_28_healthbuzz.mp3
    appears to be mis-labeled. It’s on reducing CHD markers via the flavonoid (nobelitine) in Tangerines.

    With thousands of flavonoid types, nobelitine is just the latest. It seems every other day another phytonutrient is found to have some curative properties… whether it’s a carotenoid, indoles, terpenes, or a polyphenol (flavonoid or non flavonoid (color)). Resveratrol (stilbenes) and blueberries (ellagic acid -> (ellagi)tannins), are example of non-flavonoids types that are still popular these days.

    Also, we often hear about a flavonoid’s ANTIOXIDANT super-powers, yet some citrus fruits, like tangerines have PRO-OXIDANT flavonoids (Chalconaringenin, Naringenin, etc)… which haven’t been nearly as well studied or understood.

    What’s even more interesting to me is that I’m sure there’s many other plant based compounds and synergism that we have no idea about, and which wouldn’t fit neatly into our current classifications.

    For example, what’s behind the mechanism at work in the extract found in African mango seeds ( Irvingia Gabonensis – IGOB131 )? Studies suggest that it can lower cholesterol and reduce body fat.

    And since there is always more than one side, this is a great 2-part post by Stephan Guyenet, for more food for thought!
