BIOFLAVONOIDS * HESPERIDIN * RUTIN * QUERCETIN

IMPORTANCE: They are vital in their ability to increase the strength of the capillaries (blood vessels) and to regulate their permeability. They assist Vitamin C in keeping collagen, the intercellular "cement" in healthy condition; are essential for the proper absorption and use of vitamin C; prevents Vitamin C from being destroyed in the body by oxidation; beneficial in hypertension; helps hemorrhages and ruptures in the capillaries and connective tissues and builds a protective barrier against infections. Quercetin is a very highly concentrated form of Bioflavonoids derived from citrus fruit

DEFICIENCY SYMPTOMS: May result in varicose veins, tendency to bruise and bleed easily, appearance of purplish spots on the skin.

PHOSPHATIDYL CHOLINE

The most significant component of lecithin. it emulsifies and breaks down fat deposits in the body, which make it helpful in the prevention of atherosclerosis, heart disease, gallstones and liver problems. Medical studies have also shown that PHOSPHATIDYL Choline is beneficial in neurological disorders, memory loss and depression. Phosphatidyl Choline is 3 times more potent than lecithin.

GRAPE SEED EXTRACT

Grape seed extract is very similar to pine bark extract as it contains a unique type of bioflavonoids called proanthocyanidins, which are synergistic with vitamin C, that is, they greatly enhance the activity of Vitamin C. In fact, some researchers believe that grape seed extract helps vitamin C enter cells, thus strengthening the cell membranes and protecting the cells from oxidative damage.
