In addition to vitamin C's powerful antioxidant and infection-fighting properties, this product contains added bioflavonoids in a time release form as vitamin C can not be stored for future use. Vitamin C is necessary for maintaining all collagen structures, which promotes wound repair, strong bones and teeth, and healthy gums. As a powerful antioxidant, it protects the aqueous areas of the body (including the blood, intracellular fluid and interstitial fluid) from free radicals. Vitamin C protects LDL cholesterol from oxidation and also helps to regenerate vitamin E.
The body's need for vitamin C increases during times of stress because vitamin C participates in the production of vital chemicals such as norepinephrine, needed for the "fight or flight" response. Vitamin C also acts as a detoxifier, helping to cleanse the body of toxins, such as cigarette smoke, carbon monoxide, etc.
Bioflavonoids are vitamin-like molecules that are found in the peel of citrus fruits and other fruits and vegetables. They enhance the activity of vitamin C and may improve the body's ability to hold and absorb vitamin C by 35%. Bioflavonoids are plant components known to improve circulation, memory and varicose veins, and to reduce high blood pressure and risk of stroke.
