well-absorbed antioxidant flavonoid*
Hesperidin is a flavonoid derived from citrus fruits (lemons and oranges). Many experts believe flavonoids like hesperidin have a synergistic activity with vitamin C.* Hesperidin may also increase the strength of veins and capillaries.* In addition, hesperidin can reduce histamine release from mast cells by strengthening the cell membrane (mast cells are blood cells that contain granules of histamine and other substances).*
While hesperidin itself is not very water-soluble, hesperidin methyl chalcone (HMC) is highly water-soluble, allowing for greater absorption of the molecule in the gastrointestinal tract.* As with all flavonoids, HMC is an antioxidant.* Hesperidin also supports eye health and has blood vessel-stabilizing effects.*
