A synergistic combination of ascorbic acid and citrus flavonoids
- Immune Support
Supports normal development and maintenance of bones, cartilage, teeth, and gums, and in wound healing. An antioxidant that helps to reduce free radicals and lipid oxidation in body tissues.
Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is a potent water-soluble antioxidant involved in numerous biochemical pathways. It enhances the immune system; it supports connective tissue formation; it is necessary for phase I liver detoxification enzymes and to help quench free-radicals in the liver; vitamin C raises glutathione levels, thus enhancing phase II detoxification; it is involved in bile acid synthesis; and, vitamin C is essential to cardiovascular and neurological function. Vitamin C is essential for maintenance of healthy cartilage and for wound healing.
Vitamin C is an essential, water-soluble antioxidant for collagen stabilization. A deficiency can result in poor collagen cross-linkage and weaker connective tissue. Bioflavonoids have some of the same mechanisms of action, potentiating the effect of ascorbic acid.
In addition to immune support, connective tissue support, and its role in cellular energy production, antioxidant activity is one of the primary reasons for vitamin C supplementation. In addition to strong antioxidant activity, flavonoids support other key functions in the body. Factors dictating higher vitamin C include smoking, alcohol ingestion, stress, diabetes, pregnancy, environmental toxicity, and the use of certain drugs.
