Vitamin C is an essential, water-soluble antioxidant for collagen stabilization. A deficiency can result in poor collagen cross-linkage. Bioflavonoids have some of the same mechanisms of action, potentiating the effect of ascorbic acid.
In addition to immune support, connective tissue support, and its role in cellular energy production, antioxidant activity is one of the primary reasons for vitamin C supplementation. In addition to potent antioxidant activity, flavonoids support key functions in the body because of their
anti-inflammatory, antihistamine, antimutagenic, and antiviral activity. Factors requiring higher vitamin C include smoking, alcohol ingestion, stress, diabetes, pregnancy, environmental toxicity, and use of certain drugs.
