Description: Bioflavonoid Complex 100t is available by Douglas Laboratories.
A Dietary Supplement
Complex is a convenient dietary supplement designed to provide
antioxidant bioflavonoids derived from natural sources. Each tablet
supplies a combination of mixed citrus bioflavonoids rich in hesperidin
and naringin flavanones, as well as quercetin and its glycoside, rutin.
Bioflavonoid Complex is essentially free of citric acid to which some
people may be sensitive.
Bioflavonoid Complex may be taken as a
dietary supplement for individuals who wish to increase their intake of
nutritionally important bioflavonoids.
Bioflavonoids (also called flavonoids)
are a class of phytochemicals that are potent antioxidants, which
scavenge many potentially damaging free radicals. Free radicals are
unstable chemicals formed in the body during metabolism and from
exposure to environmental sources, such as pollution and cigarette
smoke. Free radicals are produced during energy metabolism and are
necessary for immune function, but when an excessive number of free
radicals are formed, they can attack healthy cells, especially their
membrane lipids and proteins.
This, in turn, is thought to
contribute to a degradation of the structure and function of these
cellular components. Another aspect of the antioxidant properties of
bioflavonoids is their synergy with Vitamin C. The bitter tasting
flavanones hesperidin and naringin, from the white albedo layer of
citrus peels, have been shown to extend the nutritional functions of
Bioflavonoids are also capable of binding to metal
ions, which prevents these metals from acting as catalysts in the body
to enhance free radical production. Many bioflavonoids, especially
rutin and quercetin, support the health of the body’s circulatory
system by helping maintain capillary blood flow and proper vascular
permeability, integrity, and resiliency. Bioflavonoids are also
involved in a wide array of other biochemical functions, such as immune
function, platelet aggregation, enzyme activity, and the healthy
metabolism of collagen, cholesterol, and histamine.
