Vitamin C is the best known vitamin and plays the most important role in maintaining our health and well being. Similarly, Hesperiden, a bioflavonoid, is essential for promoting the circulatory system by preserving the integrity of the blood vessels - particularly the fragile capillaries and reduction of capillary filtration rate, without affecting blood flow or venous capacity. Flavonoids also improve chronic venous insufficiencies.
Both Vitamin C & hesperidin work synergistically as evident by their common occurrence naturally in citrus fruits, cherries , grapes, potatoes etc.
Deficiency symptoms of Vitamin C include: Irregular blood pressure in both arms, pins and needles sensation in finger tips and toes, tender gums with bleeding during brushing of teeth, cold hands and feet, susceptible to catching cold and minor infections, suffering occasional cramps, bruise easily, feeling dizzy when suddenly standing from sitting, bending or lying down, crackling joints, experiencing shortness of breath, sensitive and/or lack of tolerance to heat or cold. If the answer is yes to the above symptoms, then it may well be that a Vitamin C and Hesperidin deficiency exists and administering Vitamin C with Hesperidin complex is a pleasant and convenient way of supplementing Vitamin C and providing temporary relief.
