CITRUS FLAVONOIDS – are sometimes referred to as flavanons and belong to the group of flavonoids naturally occurring in citrus fruits, such as grapefruit or orange. These include a compound known as naringenin (naringenin 7-rhamnoglucoside), as well as hespertin. Both of these chemical compounds have a strong antioxidant effect, and also affect the metabolism of many other molecules. Citrus flavonoids have been shown to lower cholesterol levels and also prevent blood cell aggregation and inflammation. In addition, they 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. It is a hormone that promotes obesity and damages muscle tissue.
Dosage: 700-1400 mg per day.
