Ingredients of interest:
-Mixed Citrus Bioflavonoids:
- Citrus bioflavonoids are found in fruits such as lemons, oranges, tangerines, and grapefruits.
- Citrus bioflavonoids possess antioxidant activities which help to support healthy aging.*
- The flavonoid hesperidinis a flavanone glycoside of the flavanone comprised (a class of flavonoids) and the hesperitin disaccharide rutinose.
- Hesperidin supports joint and nasal comfort as well as vascular function through its ability to interfere with the metabolism of arachidonic acid as well as with histamine release.*
- Rutin is a bioflavonoid comprised of the flavonol quercetin and disaccharide rutinose.
- Quercitin is an antioxidant that helps to maintain prostaglandin levels.*
- As an antioxidant, Rutin has been demonstrated to scavenge superoxide radicals.*
- Rutin may also help maintain levels of the biological antioxidant glutathione, the master antioxidant within cells. Taken with Vitamin C, it helps inhibit the oxidation of Vitamin C in the cells.*
- Bromelain supports digestion of protein, which left undigested, may promote certain allergic reactions in the body.*
- Bromelain is beneficial in treating swellin due to trauma or surgery.*
