What Is It?
The amla fruit is one of the richest natural sources of vitamin C, and also contains a gamut of bioflavonoids. Interestingly, although amla extract actually contains very little vitamin C, it is a more powerful antioxidant than vitamin C itself. It is thought that the flavonoids enhance the antioxidant activity of vitamin C by keeping it active longer. Bioflavonoids, or simply flavonoids, are pigments found in most plants. They are renowned for containing polyphenols (or phytochemicals) that are themselves abundant sources of antioxidant activity. Bioflavonoids include anthocyanins from bilberries, ellagic acids from strawberries, curcumin from turmeric, catechins from green tea, proanthocyanidins from grapes, and quercetin from onions, to name a few. Vitamin C is also included in this formula.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: Vitamin C is essential because the body cannot produce it. It's necessary for immunity and vascular health. Bioflavonoids and vitamin C are powerful antioxidants, and the combination enhances their free radical-quenching activity.
Who Should Take It?
C + Bioflavonoids is an ideal staple for anyone who supplements with vitamin C and wants to support overall health.
