Vitamin C with Flavonoids

  • Necessary for normal wound healing and collagen formation
  • Promotes a healthy immune response
  • Enhances iron absorption

Vitamin C is a key antioxidant, protecting cells throughout the body from free radical damage.  It plays an integral role in the production of cellular energy, and is essential for the proper metabolism of carbohydrates and the synthesis of fats and proteins.  Vitamin C also helps break down cholesterol, promotes wound healing, and helps maintain healthy immune function. Although ascorbic acid will work in the body without flavonoids, it works better when accompanied by flavonoid molecules, because the bioflavonoids spare vitamin C, thus providing greater antioxidant capacity.
