Citrus Bioflavonoid Introduction:
Citrus Bioflavonoids are bioflavonoids with obvious Biological Action extracted from citrus fruits. It has specific aromaticity and obvious pharmacological action.

Clinical research testified that Citrus Bioflavonoids is not only pharmacology gene but also important nutrition gene.

The common citrus bioflavonoids include: Apigenin, Hesperidin, Hesperitin, Naringenin, Naringin, Narirutin, Nobiletin , Quercetin , Rutin, Tangeretin, Tangeritin.


Citrus Bioflavonoid Benefits:
1.Antioxidant protection
Citrus bioflavonoids are potent antioxidants that help combat free radicals and work synergistically with vitamin C.4,7

2.Capillary strength
Studies have shown that certain citrus bioflavonoids may strengthen capillaries, and researchers believe that may be related to its ability to protect collagen.7

3.Circulatory health
Citrus bioflavonoids may also provide benefits to overall circulatory health.7

4.Immune support
Numerous studies have demonstrated the ability of citrus bioflavonoids to help support a healthy immune system and immune response.


Citrus Bioflavonoid Application: 

1. In medical field, as the raw materials of drugs for bacterial infections, sedative and anti-cancer,

2. In health products, as the product of sedative and boosting immune system

3. In cosmetic field, as the product of leisure and boosting immune system
