Functions and Mechanism of Action
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a water-soluble antioxidant with various biological functions. It is essential for the synthesis of collagen and glycosaminoglycans, which are the building materials of all connective tissues, such as skin, blood vessels, tendons, joint cartilage, and bone.
Vitamin C supports the body’s defense system by enhancing white blood cell function and activity, and promoting interferon levels, antibody responses, and secretion of thymic hormones. The antioxidative action of vitamin C has been shown to support respiratory, eye, and capillary health.
In addition, vitamin C is required for biosynthesis of carnitine, serotonin, and certain neurotransmitters, including norepinephrine.
Bioflavonoids are polyphenol compounds derived from plant extracts that provide beneficial health effects due to their antioxidative properties. Citrus bioflavonoids have been shown to support healthy arterial function by assisting in the maintenance of vasculature activity and normal blood flow.
One such bioflavonoid, hesperidin, has been shown in preclinical research to enhance mitochondrial energy production. In a clinical study, a bioflavonoid-rich citrus beverage was shown to support vascular function, potentially by influencing nitric oxide.
An increase in nitric oxide production from hesperidin-rich fruit juices has been shown to support endothelial function by enhancing oxygen transport in the muscles. In addition, dietary hesperidin has been shown to support exercise performance in endurance activities.
