A Natural Vitamin C Supplement with Flavonoids for Healthy Immune System Support, Protection Against Free Radicals, and Healthy Detoxification.
The Formation of Free Radicals:
Most people are exposed to environmental pollutions every day such as pesticides, herbicides, radiation, artificial food additives, cadmium and smog. These toxins can produce free radicals in our bodies. Free radicals are formed when weakly bonded molecules split up and are left with unpaired electrons. Free radicals are also produced by normal cellular functions in our bodies including during metabolism and through an immune system response.
Damage to the Living Cells
Due to their instability, free radicals become reactive with other compounds, attempting to gain the necessary electron to achieve molecular stability. Usually the nearest stable molecules are damaged by free radicals. When a free radical attacks a stable molecule in an attempt to gain its electron, the stable molecule loses the electron and becomes an unstable free radical. This creates a chain response that once initiated can advance and inflict severe damage to a living cell resulting in the mutation or death of the cell.
Free Radicals Lead to Degenerative Diseases
Our body is capable of dealing with only low levels of free radicals, and in todays environment we are constantly bombarded with more free radicals then our body can safely handle. An excessive amount free radical damage accumulates as we age and may lead to many degenerative diseases including cancer.
Antioxidants Neutralize Free Radicals
Thankfully we can rely on antioxidants to counter the damaging effects of free radicals. Antioxidants are nutrients that can neutralize free radicals and the harm they cause. Antioxidants accomplish this by supplying the unstable molecules (missing electrons) with one of their own electrons. By donating their electrons, antioxidants put an end to the chain response of electron snatching molecules, which intern brings balance to the living cell. Antioxidants are considered stable substances because they do not become free radicals when they donate their electron. Antioxidants such as vitamin C, quercetin, rutin and hibiscus act as scavengers that help prevent tissue damage and cellular degeneration.
Natural Vitamin C, Essential for Optimal Health
Vitamin C operates mainly in cellular fluid and is the most plentiful water soluble antioxidant present in the body. Vitamin C is especially important in neutralizing free radical damage caused by cigarette smoke and environmental pollutants. Vitamin C has been known to help return vitamin E to its active state.
Why Choose C-Flav as Your Vitamin C and Antioxidant Supplement?
Because of the Flavonoid Advantage
C-Flav is a high potency antioxidant supplement. In our C-Flav supplement, vitamin C (a well known antioxidant) is combined with various flavonoids (such as quercetin, rutin and hibiscus flowers) to more closely mirror natural antioxidant properties. Vitamin C is almost always found to work in synergy with various flavonoids. Studies have supported the belief that flavonoids enhance the effectiveness of vitamin C. By including a nearly even blend of vitamin C and flavonoids, C-Flav is set apart from other vitamin C supplements whose flavonoid content is inadequate.
