The word is derived from the Latin ‘flavus’, meaning yellow, and is a chemical that has many uses in a plant, including its pigmentation, often a vivid yellow. They also regulate growth, help manage stress in a plant, and acts as a natural defence system by managing the presence of free radicals.
Whilst free radical activity is normal in cells, free radicals are highly reactive molecules that can start harmful reactions in cells if they’re not controlled, leading to disease, stress or injury. Something we would rather avoid!
Hopefully the answer to this is already becoming clear from the previous bullet points. Bioflavonoids are integral in supporting the growth and development of a plant. By utilising these natural powerhouses, as opposed to synthetic alternatives, our products support plant life organically to help them survive and thrive. A plant’s natural tolerance and recovery from exposures to stressors will improve, they can absorb water and necessary nutrients more easily, soil condition is improved and flowers, foliage and fruit are bigger and better.
