Bioflavonoids are colourful antioxidants found occurring naturally in plant pigments. Some of the common Bioflavonoids include, Anthocyanidins, Hesperidin, Myricetin, Nobiletin, Proanthocyanidins, Quercetin and Rutin. One of the richest sources of these flavonoids is found in the rind and pulp of citrus fruits and vegetables, whilst Rutin is found in buckwheat. Smoking depletes the body’s level of Vitamin C.
Vitamin C has a very complex and important role in the body. It plays an important role in strengthening the immune system, blood vessels and gums and in promoting healthy tissue repair, wound healing and building the connective tissue collagen. Collagen is an integral part of skin, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, bone and teeth. Vitamin C aids Iron absorption, utilisation of Folic Acid and helps maintain normal blood cholesterol levels. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and neutralises toxic free radicals, preventing the oxidation of cellular tissue.
Bioflavonoids enhance the body’s absorption and utilisation of Vitamin C. Their actions are similar to Vitamin C and are particularly important in maintaining the integrity of blood vessels. They have antioxidant activity and prevent the oxidation of Vitamin C and adrenaline from Copper containing enzymes.
