What are Bioflavonoids?
Bioflavonoids are a group of plant pigments that provide the colors of many fruits and flowers. Flavonoid intake is associated with cardiovascular health and microbial balance. Bioflavonoids are used to support connective tissue and joint comfort, as well as respiratory and eye health. Citrus bioflavonoids have also been shown to cross the blood-brain barrier, impart neuroprotective effects19 and promote healthy cell growth, detoxification enzymes, vasodilation and healthy platelet function. Quercetin, a flavonoid found in a variety of herbs, vegetables and fruits, is an antioxidant that inhibits inducible ICAM-1 expression, an important pathway for maintaining normal inflammatory balance. It has also been shown to support epithelial barrier function in the intestines to stabilize mast cells by releasing cytoprotective factors and to promote the balanced release of inflammatory mediators from mast cells. Rutin and hesperidin complex are strong antioxidants, which increase intracellular levels of vitamin C and offer similar benefits to quercetin.

I've taken this for a long time. I then listened to your podcast re healthy teeth & gums wherein it was recommended to take Complete C-1000. What is the difference between these two products and how to determine which one is right for you? Thank you.
