Chelated-C Plus capsules contain a non-acidic, calcium ascorbate form of vitamin C combined with antioxidants such as rutin, pine bark extract, and bioflavonoids to support the healthy functioning of the entire body.‡
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a water-soluble antioxidant with various biological functions. It is essential for the synthesis of collagen and glycosaminoglycans, which are the building materials of all connective tissues, such as skin, blood vessels, tendons, joint cartilage, and bone. Vitamin C supports the body's defense system by enhancing white blood cell function and activity, and increasing interferon levels, antibody responses, and secretion of thymic hormones. The antioxidative action of vitamin C has been shown to support respiratory, eye, and capillary health. In addition, vitamin C is required for biosynthesis of carnitine, serotonin, and certain neurotransmitters, including norepinephrine.‡ Bioflavonoids are polyphenol compounds derived from plant extracts that provide beneficial health effects due to their antioxidative properties. Flavonoids support the maintenance of vasculature activity and normal blood flow. In a clinical study, citrus bioflavonoids were shown to support vascular function by potentially influencing nitric oxide. Quercetin has been shown to be one of the most bioactive flavonoids. Quercetin promotes capillary integrity. Both quercetin and rutin promote the protection of red blood cells and play roles in quenching free radicals. This formula contains Pycnogenol® French maritime pine bark extract, a unique combination of procyanidins, bioflavonoids, and phenolic acids.‡
