Designs For Health Stellar C is rich in vitamin C and plant bioflavonoids, known for its immunoprotective properties. The Nobel Prize winning scientist Dr. Linus Pauling believed recommendations for vitamin C intake were inadequate, and that many people would benefit from much higher amounts than they were typically getting.

Increasing this water-soluble nutrient is key to building immune health. Stress, environmental toxins, illness, oral contraceptives, certain medications, and the natural ageing process all increase the need for vitamin C. Additionally, glucose and vitamin C compete for absorption and use in the body, so individuals with a very high carbohydrate consumption may wish to supplement with vitamin C.

BIOFLAVONOIDS Vitamin C and bioflavonoids are found together in nature because they work synergistically; for instance, oranges are rich in both vitamin C and the bioflavonoid, hesperidin. The inclusion of bioflavonoids in this product helps the body properly absorb and use vitamin C, and assists in preventing vitamin C from being destroyed by oxidation. All three bioflavonoids in Stellar C™ – quercetin, hesperidin and rutin – are noted for their protective, antioxidative and immune-supportive properties, as well as their potential to support a healthy inflammatory response in times of intense exercise or overexertion.

ADDITIONAL HIGHLIGHTS • Quercetin is called “king of the flavonoids” because of its antioxidant properties and its ability to help support a healthy inflammatory response. It is found in many foods recognized for their health benefits, including red onions, apples, olive oil, dark berries and grapes, salad greens and culinary herbs, such as dill, cilantro, and radicchio.

(Quercetin contributes to the richly coloured pigments in these foods.) A potent antioxidant, quercetin is also a good helper for the immune response during times of seasonal upper respiratory challenges. • Hesperidin is another potent but lesser-known bioflavonoid found in oranges and grapefruits, particularly in the white part of the peel, called the pith. • Rutin is an antioxidant found in asparagus, citrus fruits, dark coloured berries, plums and prunes.
