C-Matrix contains a combination of buffered vitamin C and bioflavonoids that provide well-absorbed and well-balanced antioxidant support. By binding ascorbic acid with minerals such as magnesium calcium sodium and potassium C-Matrix offers a product that is pH-neutral and therefore quite gentle on the digestive tract. The addition of various bioflavonoids allows for better utilization of vitamin C within the body.
Bioflavonoids are plant compounds found in citrus fruits apples tea and many other foods with health-promoting properties. Research has shown that they have potent anti-inflammatory anti-allergy anti-bacterial anti-thrombotic and anti-oxidant abilities capable of inhibiting LDL cholesterol oxidation. When combined with vitamin C their health-promoting capacities are even greater.
Bioflavonoids including rutin work synergistically with vitamin C to improve the integrity of blood vessels capillaries and the cardiovascular system as a whole. Specifically bioflavonoids inhibit the oxidation of vitamin C thereby having a sparing effect on the crucial nutrient. Evidence of this ability to ‘recycle’ vitamin C and strengthen blood vessels can be seen in animal studies where the addition of flavonoids to a vitamin C deficient population leads to significantly less bleeding.
