Immunity Complex + contains three unique bioflavonoids—quercetin, hesperidin, and rutin - that increase the strength and regulate permeability of capillaries. These compounds work in synergy with vitamin C to keep collagen in good condition.
Bioflavonoids also help the body properly absorb and use vitamin C, prevent oxidative destruction of vitamin C, heal hemorrhages and ruptures in capillaries and connective tissue, and protect against infection. With a therapeutic amount of vitamin C plus three powerful bioflavonoids, Immunity Complex + simplifies achieving optimal doses of these crucial vitamins in a convenient, delicious orange-flavoured powder.

The body needs adequate amounts of vitamin C for immunity, bone maintenance, collagen formation, and an encyclopedic range of other biological functions. However, ascorbic acid levels decline with age. Other factors that reduce vitamin C levels include chronic stress, smoking, illness, injury, birth control pills, estrogen for menopause, cortisone, and aspirin. With widespread use of cortisone, aspirin, birth control as well as an epidemic of chronic stress, many Canadians may find they are not meeting Vitamin C requirements.
Many nutritionists argue the body's need for vitamin C far surpasses the paltry RDA recommendations. Dr. Linus Pauling, who pioneered extensive research on vitamin C, believed optimal amounts exceed 2,000 mg daily. Immunity Complex + offers 2,569 mg (per teaspoon) of vitamin C in the combined form of ascorbic acid, calcium ascorbate, and magnesium ascorbate. Mineral ascorbates are buffered and less acidic and can benefit people who experience gastrointestinal problems with plain ascorbic acid.
Scientists have identified several thousand bioflavonoids, a group of polyphenols which provide much of the flavour and colour in fruits and vegetables. Research has focused on bioflavonoids' impact on cardiovascular disease, cancer, and osteoporosis. As a group, they have demonstrated antioxidant, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and anti-allergenic properties.
Quercetin, sometimes called “king of the flavonoids,” is a highly concentrated bioflavonoid found in citrus fruits, red wine, and tea. This powerful antioxidant reinforces the immune system, accelerates detoxifying-enzyme production, and alleviates inflammation. A recent study concluded quercetin can reduce susceptibility to viral illnesses and protect the immune system against stress. Quercetin may also provide valuable support with allergies, heart disease, and cancer.
Hesperidin, another powerful but lesser-known bioflavonoid, can be found in oranges and grapefruit. Studies show hesperidin, combined with vitamin C, offers anti-inflammatory and vasoprotective benefits. Hesperidin deficiencies can result in abnormal capillary permeability and pain in the extremities that creates aches, weakness, and nighttime leg cramps.
Rutin, found in asparagus and other produce, helps protect blood vessels. Studies demonstrate that rutin can help reduce capillary fragility and nosebleeds, as well as ease bruising and swelling from injuries. Rutin can also benefit chronic venous insufficiency, glaucoma, hay fever, hemorrhoids, varicose veins, poor circulation, oral herpes, cirrhosis, stress, low serum calcium, and cataracts.
Bioflavonoids work together with vitamin C, for example, to protect and preserve the structure of blood capillaries. Nature often combines vitamin C and bioflavonoids, since they work synergistically. For instance, oranges are rich in vitamin C and hesperidin, which combined, boost antioxidant protection. However, supplementation is often necessary to get these bioflavonoids in therapeutic doses, especially considering the widespread need for these compounds.
