Bioflavonoids

http://www.acu-cell.com/

Bioflavonoids:  Rutin and Hesperidin share left / right-sided cell receptors and may be considered
 
essential to human health.  (Bio)flavonoids comprise the most abundant group of plant Polyphenols,
 
next to Phenolic acids (found in a variety of foods), Stilbenes (resveratrol, pinosylvin, isorhapontin),
 
and Lignans (nuts, seeds, whole grain cereals).  Several thousand flavonoids have been identified,
 
which provide much of the flavor and color in fruits and vegetables, and also berries and flowers.
 

 
As a group with other polyphenols, flavonoids have been linked to reduced cardiovascular disease,
 
cancer and osteoporosis, and many other health benefits as a result of their antioxidant, antibacterial,
 
antiviral, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergenic properties.
 

 
Following are some of about a dozen researched categories on flavonoids or bioflavonoids:

Flavonoids / Bioflavonoids (bioflavinoids) are accessory nutrients to form an ascorbic acid or
 
Vitamin C complex.  Rutin and hesperidin are part of this Vitamin P group and function synergistically
 
with Vitamin C in regards to maintaining healthy capillaries, to help form collagen in connective tissue,
 
to help heal wounds, and to support a healthy immune system.
 

 
Rutin and/or hesperidin, when low, frequently result in predictable, and even side-specific medical
problems that include a greater risk for vascular degeneration, bruising / capillary fragility, nose bleeds,
 
periodontal bleeding, varicose veins, hemorrhoids and aneurism, with few individuals exhibiting optimal
 
levels, even after mega-supplementation.  One reason is the chemical interaction of bioflavonoids with
 
other nutrients, which can have a synergistic or inhibiting effect on them.  Various drugs are also able to
 
interact with (bio)flavonoids and affect their efficacy.
