In this current age of information, it seems as if there is a new health product or super food being presented to us every other week, and sold to us as something beneficial and essential to our health. After following suit and trying various products and food items, many of us have come to realize that a large number of those claims of such things being beneficial are very often overexaggerated. Yet, there are still many other health products and foods that actually are as beneficial as people claim, while some have even been proven to be more beneficial than what some initially thought. One of these foods, Luteolin, is becoming more known for how powerfully beneficial it is in adding balance to our health, as well as addressing certain health conditions.
Luteolin, to be accurate, is not really a food, but is a food compound that can be found in many different natural foods. Many things, from oranges and other citrus fruits, to carrots, broccoli, celery, peppers, parsley, peppermint, rosemary, and oregano, all contain varying amounts of luteolin. The hulls of peanuts are another great source where the luteolin compound can be found. Because peanuts have so many uses and are in such significant commercial activities, discarded peanut hulls are very easy to come by, and now serve as a major source of the luteolin compound.
Perhaps the major beneficial property that makes luteolin so useful is its anti-inflammatory abilities. This anti-inflammatory ability functions primarily at the cellular level, much like other better-known antioxidants. Working at the cellular level, this anti-inflammatory property of luteolin helps balance and ease muscles, joints, and nerves. Luteolin is also known to be an antihistamine, and can otherwise be used in various treatments for diabetes, respiratory disorders, and vision conditions.
Luteolin has been increasingly used for treatments of nervous system issues and conditions, and otherwise to support memory and brain function. Being an anti-inflammatory agent at the cellular level, luteolin has been shown to be very beneficial in treating brain and neurological conditions that are caused or worsened by the inflammation of relative cells and nerves. In fact, the luteolin compound is increasingly being used for treatments of many other conditions in the body that are either caused or influenced by varying forms of inflammation, especially those involving cellular inflammation.
As always, you should consult with your physician to learn more about luteolin, and how it could potentially add benefits to your health and well-being. Whether you consume it by eating proper plant-based foods or take it in a more direct, concentrated form, you will likely see noticeable health benefits as you take more luteolin into your system.
