Meniere’s disease and Bioflavonoids

One of the many natural remedies for MD is Bioflavonoids (also know as flavonoids.)

Bioflavonoids are plant compounds that have antioxidant powers. One of the primary benefits of this antioxidant is the protection of vitamin c from oxidation. They can be found in the rinds of citrus plants and other plants containing vitamin c. They can also be found in broccoli, whole grains and eggplants. Tea has been found to contain Bioflavonoids.

Bioflavonoids is considered to be beneficial to numerous ailments such cancer, arthritis, stomach pains and heart disease. Of course not everyone agrees with that but even doubters don’t completely dismiss the power of Bioflavonoids.

As far as the benefits of Bioflavonoids regarding Meniere’s disease it is controversial as well. Bioflavonoids are supposed to widen blood capillaries and arteries thus allowing better blood flow. They also help reduce the fluid accumulation (Hydrops) in the endolymphatic sac.

  1. I have been diagnosed with MD for almost 2 years but have been having symptoms for nearly 5. I am just starting on bioflavnoid caps and will be keeping an intake journal. I'll let you know if I find anything interesting.
