Dihydroquercetin: medicinal properties and where it can be found.

As for dihydroquercetin, or taxifolin, it was discovered back in 1938, and for the first time showed its effectiveness in the fight against bleeding gums. At that time, the structure of dihydroquercetin was not yet known, and its functions, during the Second World War, research was suspended. But now we can fully explain its healing properties.

But here's the problem: unlike quercetin, it was not found in plants so often, despite the fact that quercetin and taxifolin molecules are very similar in structure, but very different in function and ability to heal the body.

Dihydroquercetin was found in grape seeds and rose petals, but naturally, it would be at least costly to isolate dihydroquercetin from these substances on an industrial scale, and we also do not use rose petals and grape seeds for food. Yes, there is a recipe for exotic jam made from rose petals and cold-pressed grape seed oil, but it is unlikely that they can be compared with onions, cabbage and plums in terms of frequency of use.

However, an almost inexhaustible source of taxifolin has now been found. This is an ecologically clean Siberian larch (Larix sibirica), which forms huge arrays of taiga forests in Siberia and the Far East. Dihydroquercetin occurs unevenly in larch tissues. There is more of it in that part of the trunk, which is called a lump, and goes into the roots. There is this bioflavonoid most of all.

Bioflavonoids are necessary for the general maintenance of immunity, stabilization of the functions of the nervous system, as well as the normal functioning of blood vessels.

But what bioflavonoids are contained in Siberian herbs so popular today in traditional medicine? In this article, we will try to answer this question.

Siberia is the birthplace of many medicinal plants. Chokeberries, buckwheat, rose hips, dandelions, bergenia, burnet, valerian, hawthorn, and much more grow here rich in bioflavonoids. Here are some of the beneficial bioflavonoids found in these herbs:


It is perhaps the most powerful antioxidant among bioflavonoids. It also prevents the formation of atherosclerotic plaques and thus contributes to the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Recently, there have been recommendations for the use of quercetin along with zinc for the treatment of patients with flu and viral infections.

The maximum concentration of this substance is in red onions. Quercetin is also found in apples, tomatoes, broccoli, bell peppers, red grapes, dark cherries, lingonberries, and raspberries.

Siberian larch is a coniferous tree from the genus Larch, reaching a height of up to 45 meters and 1 meter in diameter. Siberian larch is a real long – lived tree, its age can reach 400 years. The natural habitat of the larch is located in the high-altitude mountainous regions of the Northern Urals, Western Siberia, and the Altai, where it can receive enough sunlight necessary for growth.

Siberian larch is widely used for medical purposes, due to its high vitamin content, valuable acids and various useful components, specifically bioflavonoid Dihydroquercetin

Dihydroquercetin is found in the wood of Siberian larch and is known for its antioxidant properties, it belongs to the vitamins of group P. Siberian larch helps prevent diseases such as hypertension, arrhythmia, heart failure, angina, atherosclerosis, ischemia, stroke and heart attack.
