Two botanical compounds, piperine and dihydroquercetin can improve your body's utilization of vitamin C.
Dihydroquercetin is a potent flavonoid molecule found in grape leaf extracts.
Dihydroquercetin has been shown to donate electrons back to these oxidized vitamin C molecules, essentially making them brand new and regenerating their ability to combat oxidant damage in cells and plasma.
The dual effects on vitamin C of piperine (speeding absorption) and dihydroquercetin (speeding renewal) add up to a novel formulation that reaches peak plasma levels faster to keep cellular levels optimized longer.
15) Since it is difficult to maintain all-day optimal vitamin C blood levels, boosting the body's absorption of vitamin C and reducing its degradation, as seen with piperine and dihydroquercetin, has intriguing therapeutic potential.
43) If we are to realize these benefits, we need to find ways to get the most out of our oral dosing, a goal that may be obtained through strategies like combining vitamin C with dihydroquercetin and piperine.
