Flavoplex/C is a unique combination of buffered Vitamin C plus three selected Pure Form Bioflavonoids: Hesperidin, Naringin and Grape skin extract.
BIOFLAVONOIDS: At one time bioflavonoids were designated as the Vitamin P complex. P stood for permeability. It had been observed that bioflavonoids were associated with reduced capillary permeability. Although bioflavonoids are not considered vitamins now, some appear to positively affect cell membrane stability and many have potent antioxidant properties. Flavonoids are known to extend the life of Vitamin C in the pro-oxidant medium of the body fluids. In other words, the bioflavonoids increase the biopotency of Vitamin C by reducing and protecting it from excessive and casual oxidation.
BUFFERED ASCORBATE: The buffered Vitamin C used is a stable and purified Calcium Ascorbate. This forrn of Vitamin C is neutral in pH. In general, it is better tolerated than ascorbic acid by an individual with a sensitive stomach due to its buffered and low acid nature.
PURE FORM FLAVONOIDS: Purified Naringin, Hesperidin, & Hesperidin Methyl Chalcone are used as opposed to a crude bioflavonoid complex. Crude complexes are poorly soluble by-products of the citrus industry. Pure forms of these valuable bioflavonoids are completely water soluble and fully bioavailable. Bioflavonoid complexes typically sold in the market contain 40 - 50% flavonoids at best. The flavonoids in these products are locked in the crude orange pulp, and peel by-product and exhibit low bioavailability.
PROTECTION FROM TOXINS: Naringin can reduce the activation of food and environmental toxins by the liver and provide added protection.
GRAPE SKIN EXTRACT: Grape skin extract is included because it is an excellent source of polyphenols (anthocyanins & leucoanthocyanins) which are active ingredients in red wine, and are known to help protect the cardiovascular system. Anthocyanins are also capable of reducing the formation of nitrosamines and other nitroso additives found in foods, thereby augmenting the nitroso lowering effect of ascorbic acid. This helps protect cells from the ill effects of nitrosamines.
