What Is It?
Bioflavonex is a bioflavonoid formula combining concentrated, standardized extracts of grape seed, green tea, milk thistle, and resveratrol. Bioflavonoids are water-soluble plant pigments with powerful antioxidant properties.*
- Grape seed polyphenols and oligomeric proanthocyanidins provide protective support for capillaries and blood vessels. These compounds are among the most powerful antioxidants known in nature, as laboratory studies have shown them to be 20 times more powerful than vitamin C and 50 times more powerful than vitamin E in antioxidant capability. Oligomeric proanthocyanidins have also been shown to inhibit collagenase, elastase and hyaluronidase enzyme activity, supporting blood vessel integrity.*
- Resveratrol, promoting cardiovascular health through its antioxidant action and its ability to maintain healthy platelet function and arachidonic acid metabolism. Furthermore, this polyphenol most commonly associated with the health benefits of red wine provides additional antioxidant support for blood vessel integrity.*
- Green tea, containing catechins, a class of polyphenols that promote cardiovascular, immune and cellular function. The antioxidant activity of green tea catechins, specifically epigallocatechin gallate, also protects cells from lipid peroxidation and preserves and promotes vitamin E levels in the body.*
- Silymarin, stabilizing hepatic cell membranes and scavenging free radicals and toxins in the liver. Two of silymarin’s mechanisms involve promoting superoxide dismutase antioxidant enzyme activity and increasing glutathione concentrations in the liver.*Uses For BioflavonexBioflavonex combines natural, concentrated bioflavonoid extracts for cardiovascular, liver, and cellular antioxidant protection.*
