Hesperidin is a bioflavonoid (flavanone glycoside). Hesperidin is a type of plant pigment found in citrus fruits. Hesperidin is abundant in citrus fruits – lemons, limes, oranges, and grapefruits. Hesperidin was first isolated from the white inner layer of citrus peels. Hesperidin together with other similar bioflavonoids was formerly called as “vitamin P”.
Hesperidin exhibits many pharmacological actions – cardioprotective, antihypertensive, antihyperlipidemic, antidiabetic. Various trials have shown that the pharmacological importance of hesperidin is mainly attributed to anti-inflammatory and antioxidant mechanisms.
