Lots of researches have indicated wide physiological and pharmacological effects of plant derived natural flavonoids. Daily intake of flavonoids can prevent various diseases. Naringenin is an abundant flavonoid compound in daily food and drinks like fruits, vegetables, nuts, coffee, tea and wine, which can be more easily absorbed by intestines compared to other flavonoids. Since 2004 we have been interested in naringenin due to its superior bioavailability, and then have investigated its immunomodulatory effects with interdisciplinary sciences. The present review will mainly discuss about the recent updates of naringenin as a novel immunomodulator in immune deregulated settings.
