As heart disease deaths begin to decrease, deaths from Alzheimer’s disease have been increasing. A recent study found a link between low intake of flavonoids and dementia when compared to individuals who had a higher intake of flavonoid-rich foods.

Recently, a new meta-analysis dug into the incredible heart benefits of quercetin, finding that supplementation was effective at lowering blood pressure.  But, beyond that, it also offers a number of other health benefits that lower the risk of heart disease, such as reducing excessive amounts of cholesterol and reducing the risk of atherosclerosis. →
