The Hero and the Sidekicks
Vitamin C is a fundamental antioxidant that quenches the action of toxic free radicals that are produced by the body's cellular metabolism. While the benefits of vitamin C are common knowledge, what is less well known is its partnership with flavonoids.
On their own, flavonoids fight inflammation and cancer, reduce the permeability of blood vessels, and are antioxidants. They also protect and enhance vitamin C's activity, "recharging" it into its active form and allowing it to continue its free radical quenching. Vitamin C deficiency is famous for causing scurvy, but in fact scurvy is caused by a combined deficiency of both vitamin C and flavonoids. They work together.
A Natural Boost
Flavonoids are natural plant pigments that are not produced by the body. The synergistic action of C+ Bioflavonoids gives vitamin C benefits with an extra punch.
