Our Bioflavonoids formula (Vitamin P) is 100% plant-based, derived mostly from citrus fruit peels. And when consumed it helps enhance the absorption of Vitamin C. This formula contains herspertin, eriodictyol, quercetin, and rutin. In addition to helping with Vitamin C absorption, bioflavonoids are helpful for athletic injuries, prolonged bleeding conditions, and low serum calcium. Bioflavonoids stimulate the production of bile, and normalize cholesterol levels. Also helps to preserve the structural integrity of capillaries. Works well if taken with a plant based source of Vitamin C
- referred to as "nature's biological response modifiers" - modify body's reaction to compounds such as allergens, viruses, and carcinogens
- powerful antioxidants by giving protection versus oxidative and free radical damage
- prevents formation of oxidized cholesterol through antioxidant effects
- greater antioxidant effects than Vitamins C, E, Selenium, and Zinc
- antioxidant effects
- increase intracellular Vitamin C, rutin, hesperidin, and HER
- beneficial effects on capillary permeability and blood flow like PCOs
- anti-allergy and anti-inflammatory effects

Flavonoids exist naturally in cocoa, but because they can be bitter, they are often removed from chocolate, even dark chocolate. Although flavonoids are present in milk chocolate, milk may interfere with their absorption; however this conclusion has been questioned.
Peanut (red) skin contains significant polyphenol content, including flavonoids
Over 5000 naturally occurring flavonoids have been characterized from various plants.
