Quick Overview

    Product Description

    The term ascorbic acid refers to vitamin C in its purest form, not bound to any other compound. Thorne’s Vitamin C with Flavonoids contains ascorbic acid and citrus flavonoids (a mixture of naturally-occurring flavonoids, including rutin, hesperidin, and quercetin), and is 100-percent pure. Unlike many vitamin C supplements from other companies, Thorne’s vitamin C supplements contain no corn starch. Although it is a myth that ascorbic acid will not work in the body without flavonoids, vitamin C does work better if accompanied by flavonoid molecules, as their presence in cells spares vitamin C and provides greater antioxidant activity.

    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.
