Abstract

Flavonoids have a wide range of use in treating autoimmune diseases. Propolis and other flavonoids that are used as dietary supplements have anti-inflammatory characteristics and they prevent complications in diabetes such as cardiovascular or renal diseases. Their anti-allergic effect comes from their ability to inhibit histamine release by inhibiting the enzymes or by stabilizing cell membrane. Anti-infective effect enables them to prevent complications in other autoimmune diseases and diseases that have been caused by oxidative stress.
