Vitamin C is considered an essential nutrient because the body cannot produce it on its own. Its benefits include: immunity, proper formation of bones, teeth and ligaments, promoting heart health, protecting cells from damage, wound healing, iron absorption, and more .
Bioflavonoids, or simply flavonoids, are pigments found in most plants and give fruits and vegetables their colour. Over 8000 bioflavonoids have been identified; they include anthocyanins from bilberries, ellagic acids from strawberries and pomegranates, curcumin from turmeric, catechins from green tea, proanthocyanidins from grapes, and quercetin from onions, to name a few. They are potent antioxidants and work together with vitamin C to enhance its antioxidant properties by keeping it active for longer. It is thought that the antioxidant potential of natural fruits and vegetables is strong because flavonoids enhance the antioxidant activity of other nutrients such as vitamin C and allow them to work better.
C + Bioflavonoids is a powerful antioxidant formula containing vitamin C with citrus bioflavonoids. Since vitamin C and bioflavonoids are found together in nature, they work synergistically to neutralize toxins and protect cells from damage.
