Flavonoids to help Brain Fog?
I found this little excerpt in an email from RealAge (I don't know how I got on their email list):

"Mind Your Flavonoids
The reason for fruit's brain-boosting effect? It's all about the flavonoids, those amazing antioxidants that fight disease and might be one of your best defenses against cognitive decline. In a study, people who had the highest flavonoid intake performed best throughout a 10-year period on tests of verbal fluency, logical reasoning, and visual memory."

So I'm wondering if anyone has actually paid attention to making sure their diet is high in flavonoids during treatment.  Can't hurt, might help....but looking for feedback.  

Will be doing a search on foods that are high in flavonoids..suggestions welcome.

Thanks for the info. I was taking them for something else. Now they are doing two things.
Dr. Clark says to take L-orthinine for the brain fog. It's an amino acid. It is also recommended over at alchemistlab.org - they prefer the asparatate and they carry it.
They also have something good for fatigue.

You don't have to swallow another pill to increase flavinoids.
Take the peels of a (organically grown) medium to large orange  and a lemon. Remove the juice but not the white part of the rind. Dice small, add enough honey to cover, heat. Cool and take a tablespoon daily.

Its the white in the rind that is really high in flavinoids.
BTW: I read this recipe in a book about menopause.

Grapefruit is one of my favorites, BUT it can interact with many meds - either making the meds more potent or diluting their strength, so it pays to google grapefruit plus drug interactions.  Then if you're prescribed something that disagrees with the fruit, you can take your meds enough hours sooner or later and no harm done.

But thanks for the info - and OH, for your recipe.  Sounds like candied orange peel, which I adore.

I eat a ton of fruit, bluberries,  clementines, apples,  what ever is good and in season, though have stayed away from the grapefruit :) Salads.  Veggies.    

There has been a lot on fruits and vegs that prevent and help, be interesting to find  out how it reacts with HCV.
