Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that cannot be manufactured by humans, so diet and supplementation are the only sources for this nutrient that is very involved with so many body functions. It has been researched as an antioxidant, helping to limit damage from free radicals; for involvement in the production of collagen and elastin, necessary for the health of skin, bones, teeth and blood vessels; for production of hormones;and as an anti-inflammatory agent. Consequently, it has been recommended for use in supporting immune systems, reducing the effects of colds and allergies and as an aid in many chronic diseases, such as arteriosclerosis, osteoporosis, and diabetes.
Bioflavonoids are water soluble plant pigments which always appear with vitamin C in nature, and form somewhat of a "C Complex". They, like vitamin C, cannot be produced by the human body, so diet and supplementation are the only sources. Thought by many to enhance and support the benefits of vitamin C, bioflavonoids are anti-oxidants and have many of the benefits of C, along with helping to support the health of capillaries by improving their strength and permeability.
