Knowing About Citrus Bioflavonoids

orangesBioflavonoid is used to describe biologically active members of the group of plant-derived compounds known as flavonoids. They are available as individual flavonoids, such as quercetin (derived from onions), or as multiple bioflavonoid complexes (derived from citrus fruits), which are often combined with vitamin C. Compounds commonly featured in citrus bioflavonoid supplements include hesperidin, rutin, naringin, and quercitin.

Citrus bioflavonoids are natural plant pigments that can be found in citrus fruits like lemons, oranges, sweet limes, tangerines and grapefruit; these fruits get their distinctive coloring due to the presence of the bioflavonoids. In addition to citrus fruits, bioflavonoids are found in scores of other fruits, vegetables and nuts as well as in plant leaves and barks. Some of the bioflavonoid sources include apricots, black currants, cherries, grapes, peppers, prunes, elderberry, horsetail, and rose hips.

As these bioflavonoids seem to possess important vitamin properties, they are often known as Vitamin P. These bioflavonoid substances are high on antioxidants and have anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and anti-allergy properties. A daily dosage, as recommended by a physician, can help the body fight off common cold viruses and various other infections. The presence of antioxidants can help counter free radical damage, maintain a clear, healthy skin and slow down the aging process.

These supplements have also been found to be effective in treating scurvy, bleeding gums, and hemorrhage. They can be taken to control cholesterol levels and hypertension. They have also been used to speed up the healing in treatments for edema, phlebitis, hemorrhoids and herpes. Citrus bioflavonoids can work as a preventive against cataract formation, cancer and heart disease.
