Current knowledge on the metabolism of flavonoids. Part 1. Resorption and metabolism of flavonols

Heilmann, Jörg ; Merfort, Irmgard


A review with 62 refs. is given on resorption, metab., and pharmacokinetics of flavonols including a crit. assessment. Ring cleavage and metabolization, resorption and metabolization of intact compds., and pharmacokinetic points of view were discussed. Within the resorption possibilities of flavonols from the food, the metabolization by intestinal bacteria plays the main role. Flavonoid metabolites are the real bioavailable compds.
