Bioflavonoids

Although bioflavonoids aren’t true vitamins in the strictest sense, they’re sometimes referred to as vitamin P.

Bioflavonoids are essential for the absorption of vitamin C, and they should be taken together.

There are many different bioflavonoids, including citrin, eriodictyol, flavones, hesperetin, hesperidin, quercetin, quercetrin, and rutin.

Your body can’t make bioflavonoids, so they have to be supplied in your diet.

Bioflavonoids are used extensively in treating athletic injuries because they relieve pain, bumps, and bruises.

They also reduce pain in your legs or across your back, and lessen symptoms associated with prolonged bleeding and low serum calcium.

Bioflavonoids act together with vitamin C to protect and preserve your capillaries.

In addition, bioflavonoids have an antibacterial effect and promote circulation, stimulate bile production, lower cholesterol levels, and treat and prevent cataracts.

When taken with vitamin C, bioflavonoids also reduce the symptoms of oral herpes.

Quercetin, a bioflavonoid available in supplement form, may effectively treat and prevent asthma symptoms.

FlavoMax is a good source of quercetin.

Bromelain (an enzyme from pineapple) and quercetin are synergists, and should be taken together to enhance absorption.

Sources

Peppers, buckwheat, black currants, and the white material just beneath the peel of citrus fruits contain bioflavonoids.

Other sources of bioflavonoids include apricots, blackberries, cherries, grapefruit, grapes, lemons, oranges, plums, and prunes.

Herbs containing bioflavonoids include chervil, elderberries, hawthorn berry, rose hips, and shepherd’s purse.

Comments

Extremely high doses of bioflavonoids may cause diarrhea.
