Botanical Antioxidant Protection
The plant kingdom offers some of nature's most powerful antioxidants - biological
molecules that scavenge and neutralize damaging free radicals. Source Naturals
Bioflavonoid Complex features outstanding plant antioxidants in a potent defense
complex. Bioflavonoid Complex contains botanicals that support cardiovascular
function, circulation, joint and connective tissue, vision, the liver, and the
brain and nervous system.
Plantioxidants are standardized botanical extracts with free-radical scavenging
properties. Often referred to as "specialty bioflavonoids," they are
high-quality antioxidants that support specific organs. Hawthorn berry supports
healthy cardiovascular function, silymarin supports normal liver function, bilberry
supports normal vision, and ginkgo supports healthy function of the brain and
Bioflavonoids occur as pigments in plants, where they are found in close association
with vitamin C. Together, bioflavonoids and C provide antioxidant protection,
helping plants withstand harsh environmental conditions. BIOFLAVONOID COMPLEX
features potent botanical extracts,
many of them standardized to specific beneficial constituents. Included are
bilberry, ginkgo biloba, grape seed, green tea, hawthorn berry, quercetin, and
silymarin. The formula is enhanced by the addition of vitamin C as highly bioavailable
- Grape Seed Extract (Proanthodyn): Grape seed is rich in proanthocyanidins,
a special class of antioxidants that are soluble in both water and fat. Proanthocyanidins
have been shown in in vitro studies to support the integrity of elastin and
collagen, important constituents of joint and connective tissue.
- Green Tea: Green tea extract is a rich source of polyphenols, particularly
(-)epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG has been found in scientific studies
to be a potent antioxidant.
- Quercetin: Quercetin is a unique non-allergenic bioflavonoid present
in some foods, such as onions. Human cell culture studies with quercetin have
demonstrated its capability to inhibit the release of histamine from mast
- Ginkgo Biloba: Ginkgo, the subject of extensive research, is especially
renowned for its ability to promote blood flow to the brain. BIOFLAVONOID
COMPLEX features Ginkgo-24., a standardized concentration of prime quality
ginkgo leaves, yielding 24% ginkgo flavone glycosides and 6% terpenes (the
key constituents) from a 50-to-1 concentration.
- Bilberry: BIOFLAVONOID COMPLEX contains a potent standardized extract
of bilberry that contains 37% anthocyanosides. Anthocyanosides have demonstrated
significant antioxidant activity, according to in vitro studies. Bilberry
has been a staple of European herbal therapy for centuries, and is widely
used for supporting normal vision.
- Silymarin: Silymarin is the name given to a complex of three compounds
- silybum, silycristin, and silymarin - extracted from milk thistle seeds.
Silymarin has demonstrated demonstrated antioxidant activity and the ability
to inhibit lipid peroxidation of cell membranes, according to in vitro studies.
Silymarin has a special affinity for the liver, which is vital for digestion,
detoxification, blood sugar regulation and fat metabolism.
- Hawthorn: Hawthorn berries are a highly concentrated source of anthocyanidins
and proanthocyanidins. In addition to their roles as free radical scavengers,
these flavonoids increase intracellular vitamin C levels and decrease capillary
permeability and fragility. Hawthorn is renowned for cardiovascular support.
- Vitamin C: Bioflavonoids are most effective in the presence of vitamin
C, the nutrient they are most often paired with in nature. The C in BIOFLAVONOID
COMPLEX is bound to the mineral magnesium, a process which minimizes acidity
and increases the bioavailability of both nutrients.
