BIOFLAVONOIDS

Bioflavonoids, are a large class of important antioxidants.

Examples of Vitacyclix bioflavinoids include Hesperidin, Quercetin, Rutin and Naringin. They are compounds abundant in the pulp and rinds of citrus fruits and other foods containing vitamin C, such as soybeans and root vegetables. Other major sources of Bioflavonoids include tea, vegetables such as broccoli and eggplant, flaxseed, and whole grains. Bioflavonoids are active ingredients in many herbal remedies.

Some of the health benefits include:
preventing nosebleeds, miscarriages, postpartum bleeding, other types of haemorrhages ,anticoagulant activity (preventing blood clotting),reducing the occurrence of easy bruising, decreasing the cholesterol level, protection against infections, ability to reduce pain, improving the circulation, improving liver function, improvement of vision and eye diseases, strengthening the walls of the blood vessels.

Hesperidin

Hesperidin, is a flavanone glycoside (flavonoid) found abundantly in citrus fruits. Its aglycone form is called hesperetin. It acts as an antioxidant. In human nutrition, it contributes to the integrity of the blood vessels.
Our product is an off-white to light tan powder.

Rutin

Rutin, is a citrus flavonoid glycoside found in buckwheat, the leaves and petioles of Rheum species, and asparagus. Rutin is also found in the fruit of the Fava D’anta tree, fruits and fruit rinds (especially citrus fruits orange, grapefruit, lemon, lime) and berries such as mulberry and cranberries. Our product is a greenish-yellow powder consisting of masses of needle-shaped microscopic crystals.

Quercetin Dihydrate

Quercetin Dihydrate, is a flavanol found free or as a glycoside in a large number of species of plants.

Our product comes as a yellow to orange-yellow crystalline powder – it is odourless and is tasteless

Naringin

Naringin is a major flavonoid in grapefruit and gives the grapefruit juice its bitter taste. It is metabolized to the flavanone naringenin in humans. Both naringenin and hesperetin, which are the aglycones of naringin and hesperidin, occur naturally in citrus fruits. Naringin exerts a variety of pharmacological effects such as antioxidant activity, blood lipid lowering, anticancer activity, and inhibition of selected drug-metabolizing cytochrome P450 enzymes.
