Thorne Research HMC Hesperidin
Supports Blood Vessel Health
Well-Absorbed - 60 Capsules
Thorne Research HMC Hesperidin is a well-absorbed antioxidant that supports eye and blood vessel health.
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).
Well-Absorbed Antioxidant Flavonoid
- A citrus flavonoid that supports blood vessel health
- Blood vessel stabilizing effects can reduce the incidence of menopausal hot flashes
- Stabilizes mast cells that store and release histamine
- A water-soluble form of the flavonoid hesperidin
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.
