PHARMACOLOGICAL ACTION:

Vitamin C with bioflavonoid are mixtures of vitamin C, either as ascorbic acid or as an ascorbate with flavonoids. Typically, the flavonoids are citrus flavonoids and are derived from lemons, oranges and grapefruits. It is believed that flavonoids work synergistically with Vitamin C. Vitamin C has antioxidant activity. It may also have immunomodulatory, opthalmoprotective and airway protective actions. Vitamin C may aid in the detoxification of some heavy metals, such as lead and other toxic chemicals. Vitamin C is arguable the most important water-soluble biological antioxidant. It can scavenge both reactive oxygen species and reactive nitrogen species. Ascorbic acid or, more specifically, ascorbate is an excellent reducing agent, and it acts as a cofactor in various biochemical reactions.
