John's Wort extract, which is rich by the flavonol quercetin and nonphenolic hyperforin, induces CYP3A4 and CYP2C9.
a) The richest sources of flavonols are onion (1.2 g/kg of wet weight), broccoli, leeks and blueberries.
Antioxidant activity and total flavonol content were higher in both varieties under fully organic compared to fully conventional management.

Interestingly, the flavonol fisetin, which differs from quercetin in lacking one hydroxy group in the A ring, also appeared very potent in the ARE assay but did not reach significance in the PPAR[gamma] assay.
Oxygen-containing heterocycles, notably flavonol and its derivatives, are imperative synthetic targets due to their manifestation in multifarious natural products, cavernous biological activities and efficacy as versatile intermediates in organic synthesis [6].
They followed 171,940 Nurses' Health Study and Nurses' Health Study II participants to examine associations between intakes of total flavonoids and their subclasses (flavanones, flavonols, anthocyanins, flavan-3-ols, flavones and polymeric flavonoids) and risk of ovarian cancer by using Cox proportional hazards models.
It remained at room temperature for 40 min; the absorbance of the reaction mixture was measured at 415 nm for flavonoid assay and then was measured at 440 nm for flavonol assay.
Function-structure analysis indicated 1) flavonoids with more free phenolic hydroxyl groups showed relative higher antiplatelet and antiradical activities; 2) substitution of 7-OH of A ring affected antiplatelet capacities of flavanones apparently; 3) free 3-OH of C ring was important for both the antiplatelet and antiradical activities of flavonol (quercetin) and flavones (rutin isoquercitrin); 4) C ring C2-C3 double bond and B ring 3'-4'orthodihydroxy might be important for its antiradical function.
