VITAMIN C COMPLEX - ONE OF
Bioflavonoids, Hesperidin, Rutin, Rosehip, lemon flavones and flavonals, have been combined with Vitamin C to fully maximise its potential. The Vitamin C - Bioflavonoid combination is also referred to as the Capillary Permeability Factor or Vitamin P (P standing for permeability).
Dr Albert Szent-Gyorgi, the biochemist who isolated Vitamin C, discovered the link between the Bioflavanoid combination and Vitamin C in Hungary in 1936.
This product is a non-acidic, complete vitamin C. It has a neutral pH because of Calcium Ascorbate, which also makes it the most assimilable and effective form of Vitamin c available to the body.
Nutritional researchers increasingly stress the need to consume nutritious whole foods, particularly vegetables and fruits. This is due to the growing recognition of the variety of beneficial phytochemicals contained within plants. Since it is often difficult to consume the recommended five daily servings of vegetables, an interest has arisen for super foods containing an exceptionally high content of health-giving phytochemicals, nutrients, vitamins, minerals and enzymes.
Vitamin C is water-soluble and is also known by its chemical name - ascorbic acid. It is very unstable and disintegrates not only in cooking, but also when fruits and vegetables are peeled or stoned. Merely soaking unpeeled fruits in cold water depletes the Vitamin C content. Vitamin C does not occur in an isolated form, but is always surrounded by various accompanying nutrients. These nutrients, in combination, are known as the Bioflavonoid complex.
Vitamin C plays a leading role in the body’s resistance to bacterial infections and reduces the effects of allergens in the body. It possesses unique antioxidant properties, which assist in combating the negative effects of environmental and chemical pollutants.
Bioflavonoids are the substances that provide the yellow and orange colour in citrus foods and are usually measured in milligrams (mg).
The prime function of Bioflavonoids is to increase capillary strength and regulate absorption. It works together with vitamin C to keep connective tissues healthy. No daily allowance has been established, but most nutritionists agree that for every 500mg of Vitamin C you should have at least 100mg of Bioflavonoids (ration 4:1).
Bioflavonoids (Polyphenol-rich substances found in all fruits and vegetables) have long been known to possess anti-allergic effects. As early as the 1950’s, studies showed that Flavonoids could prevent the release of histamines. It wasn’t until some years later, however, that more attention was paid to the link between Flavonoids and allergies.
There are numerous medications available, both by prescription and over the counter, to give relief to the allergy suffer. However, most produce unpleasant side effects such as dry mouth and drowsiness. These medications work by blocking the histamine receptors in the cells.
Bioflavonoids, on the other hand, block the initial release of the histamine itself. Bioflavonoids therefore actually prevent allergic reactions rather than treating the symptoms - providing a new form of relief with a track record of clinical efficacy and safety.

Chewy C have a sustained release vitamin C formulation, which ensures
a continuous release over a period of 4-8 hours to enhance utilisation.

It is important to have the correct nutrients to repair and regenerate the adrenal glands. Many disorders related to stress are not a direct result of stress itself, but as a result of nutrient deficiencies caused by long periods of stress.
