Product Description

Ingredients and Nutritional Information

Recommended Adult Dose

1-3 capsules daily or as directed by a health care practitioner. Keep out of the reach of children.

Contraindications

  • Bioflavonoids are virtually non-toxic, so drug interactions are virtually unknown; however, citrus bioflavonoids contain grapefruit flavonoids that may interact with certain medications.

  • The reason that grapefruit is problematic with certain drugs is that it contains high levels of a flavonoid (plant pigment) called naringin.

  • This substance reduces the activity of a group of P450 enzymes known as CYP3A enzymes.

  • These enzymes are the ones your body uses to break down certain drugs, such as calcium channel blockers (used in the treatment of high blood pressure), sedatives (for example, midazolam), cyclosporin (an immune suppressant given to people who have received organ transplants) and statins (lipid-lowering drugs).

  • If the drugs are not metabolized, they remain in the body in higher concentrations. This increases the risk of unwanted toxic effects.

Additional Information

Children: Suitable for children at one-half the adult dosage.

Pregnancy and Nursing: Considered safe during pregnancy and lactation at recommended dosages. Do not exceed recommended dosages without consulting a health care practitioner.

Seniors: No special precautions are known.
