CITRUS BIOFLAVONOIDS – citrus flavonoids are sometimes referred to as flavanones. Belong to the group of flavonoids naturally found in citrus fruits, such as grapefruit or orange. These include a compound known as naringenin, as well as hesperetine. Both of these chemical compounds have a strong antioxidant effect, and also affect the metabolism of many other molecules. It is not recommended, for example, to drink grapefruit juice with medicines, which may impair the absorption of ingredients. Flavonoids found in citrus fruits have been shown to lower cholesterol levels. They prevent platelet aggregation (clumping) and inflammation.
CITRUS BIOFLAVONOIDS support the immune system and strengthen the walls of blood vessels. They are thought to affect the activity of PPAR alpha receptors and reduce cortisol secretion. Cortisol is a hormone that promotes the deposition of adipose tissue and intensifies muscle catabolism. On the other hand, they increase the activity of norepinephrine, which is a hormone that conditions the processes in which lipolysis occurs. Thanks to this, they have a fat-reducing effect. Citrus flavonoids are found in a wide variety of dietary supplements, including supplements that support health and well-being, vitamin supplements (they work synergistically with vitamin C), thermogenics, endocrine-supporting herbal supplements, and more.
Dosage: 1000-1500 mg per day.
