C-Flav is a formula that combines vitamin C with various bioflavonoids to mirror the way vitamin C is found in nature. Created from multiple sources rich in vitamin C, C-Flav provides antioxidant protection, enhances immune function and provides support for healthy collagen synthesis and connective tissue. It also supports normal levels of inflammation throughout the body. C-Flav provides 400 mg vitamin C, 100 mg acerola extract, 70 mg quercetin, 50 mg hesperidin, 50 mg hibiscus and 50 mg rutin in an easy-totake capsule form.
While true vitamin C deficiency is rare, functional deficiency is common. During periods of stress, the adrenal glands utilize large amounts of vitamin C. Low dietary fruit and vegetable consumption can also lead to a functional deficiency. Signs of functional deficiency include dry and splitting hair, bleeding gums, dry or scaly skin and easy bruising. Those taking NSAIDS, aluminum-based antacids, oral contraceptives, barbiturates, tetracycline and Coumadin are more susceptible to depletion of vitamin C.
