Flavonoids are a group of polyphenolic compounds ubiquitously found in plants including fruits, and vegetables. Broad ranges of the biological activities of flavonoids have been reported using in vitro studies. I report that several natural flavonoids blocked glucose uptake in myelocytic U937 cells. Although there were some variations in the blocking activity of individual flavonoids, approximately half of the glucose uptake was blocked by flavonoids at the concentrations of 8-50 microM.
