Bioflavonex™ combines natural, concentrated bioflavonoidextracts for cardiovascular, liver, and cellular antioxidantprotection.
Grape seed extract, containing oligomeric proanthocyanidins,providing protective support for capillaries and bloodvessels. These compounds are among the most powerfulantioxidants known in nature, as laboratory studies haveshown them to be 20 times more powerful thanvitamin C and 50 times more powerful thanvitamin E in antioxidant capability. Oligomericproanthocyanidins have also been shown to inhibitcollagenase, elastase and hyaluronidase enzymeactivity, supporting blood vessel integrity.
Resveratrol, promoting cardiovascular health throughits antioxidant action and its ability to maintain healthyplatelet function and arachidonic acid metabolism.Furthermore, this polyphenol most commonly associatedwith the health benefits of red wine provides additionalantioxidant support for blood vessel integrity.
Green tea, containing catechins, a class of polyphenolsthat promote cardiovascular, immune and cellularfunction. The antioxidant activity of green tea catechins,specifically epigallocatechin gallate, also protects cellsfrom lipid peroxidation and preserves and promotesvitamin E levels in the body.
Silymarin, stabilizing hepatic cell membranes andscavenging free radicals and toxins in the liver. Two ofsilymarin's mechanisms involve promoting superoxidedismutase antioxidant enzyme activity and increasingglutathione concentrations in the liver.Ingredients:
