Stellar C is rich in vitamin C (from a mixture of ascorbic acid and acerola fruit) and plant bioflavonoids (hesperidin, rutin, quercitin and mixed citrus bioflavonoids), known for their immunoprotective properties. These nutrients have been used historically for many applications in addition to immune support, including spider veins, broken capillaries, and to provide good collagen support for healthy skin, hair and nails.
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is naturally present in various fruits and vegetables, but its intake through diet alone may not be sufficient. Factors such as stress, smoking, illness, certain medications, and the natural aging process can increase the body’s need for vitamin C. Additionally, individuals with high carbohydrate consumption may benefit from supplementing with vitamin C, as glucose and vitamin C compete for absorption and use in the body.
Bioflavonoids, which are naturally found alongside vitamin C in certain foods, work synergistically with vitamin C. For example, oranges contain both vitamin C and the bioflavonoid hesperidin. Including bioflavonoids in Stellar C helps enhance the absorption and utilization of vitamin C while protecting it from oxidation.
Stellar C features three notable bioflavonoids: quercetin, hesperidin, and rutin. These bioflavonoids offer protective, antioxidative, and immune-supportive properties, as well as support for a healthy inflammatory response during intense exercise or overexertion. When combined with vitamin C, these compounds help preserve the structure of blood capillaries and veins.
Here are some additional highlights:
Quercetin: Known as the “king of the flavonoids,” quercetin possesses powerful antioxidant properties and promotes a healthy inflammatory response. It is found in various foods recognized for their health benefits, including red onions, apples, olive oil, dark berries, grapes, salad greens, dill, cilantro, and radicchio. Quercetin also supports the immune response during seasonal upper respiratory challenges.
Hesperidin: Another potent bioflavonoid, hesperidin is found in oranges and grapefruits, primarily in the pith, the white part of the peel.
Rutin: An antioxidant present in asparagus, citrus fruits, dark-colored berries, plums, and prunes.
By incorporating Stellar C into your daily routine, you can benefit from the synergistic effects of vitamin C and bioflavonoids, supporting your immune system, promoting collagen production, and preserving the health of your blood vessels.
