Vitamin C prevents and reduces duration and severity of the common cold: prophylactic vitamin C supplementation is beneficial in individuals undergoing acute physical stress(1) Vitamin C improves iron absorption, and is especially important for hemodialysis patients(2, 3) Citrus bioflavonoids exhibit anti-inflammatory activity via inhibition of the synthesis and biological activities of different pro-inflammatory mediators, mainly the arachidonic acid derivatives, prostaglandins E2, F2, and thromboxane A2(4), and histamine release from mast cells(5). Citrus bioflavonoids prevent the formation of new cancers from carcinogens, by preventing carcinogenic compounds from reaching critical initiation sites, and by facilitating the metabolism of carcinogenic components into less toxic materials and preventing their harmful biological actions(6). Together vitamin C and bioflavonoids play a vital role in the health and permeability of capillaries. Bioflavonoids are part of the C complex of vitamins and synergistically enhance their free radical scavenging capabilities. Ascorbates SAP may be used for prevention and management of acute upper respiratory infections, asthma, iron deficiency anemia and hemodialysis-induced iron deficiency, inflammatory conditions, cardiovascular disease and cancer prevention and management, wound healing, capillary fragility and bruising, allergic conditions, and stomach ulcers.

Antioxidants protect the body against free radical damage. Free radicals are molecules which are produced through the breakdown of food during digestion, or by environmental exposures such as smoke, pollution and radiation. Free radicals can damage DNA and may play a role in cancer, heart disease, and other diseases. Vitamin C is an essential nutrient which acts as an antioxidant and is involved in numerous metabolic functions in the body. Supplementation is effective for prevention and management of the “common cold”, other respiratory conditions, improved iron absorption, wound healing, reduced coronary heart disease risk, and prevention of complications of diabetes. Citrus bioflavonoids are potent antioxidant compounds derived from citrus fruits such as oranges, grapefruits, lemons, and limes, and are effective in strengthening capillaries, and for managing allergic conditions, stomach ulcers, and cancer.
