Vitamin P is helpful in strengthening the permeability of capillaries

May help with colds and flu symptoms

Useful in the treatment of haemorrhoids, varicose veins, bruising, retention of tissue fluid associated with the menstrual cycle and rheumatoid arthirits

Vitamin C assists in keeping collagen (the intercellular cement) in healthy condition

Bioflavonoids act as an antioxidant keeping vitamin C and adrenalin from being oxidized by enzymes containing copper.

The bioflavonoids also chelate copper from the body.
