What is Lipoflavonoid?

Lipoflavonoid and lipo-flavonoid are registered trademarks of DSE Healthcare Solutions, manufacturers of the "over the counter" dietary supplement of the same name.

Lipoflavonoid is essentially bioflavonoid with some added extra's and is a dietary supplement.

Bioflavonoids are multivitamins* that can be purchased "over the counter" and are used by many tinnitus sufferers to help reduce the effects of ringing in the ears.

Bioflavonoids are also used in many remedies which claim to help with circulation related disorders such as spider veins and varicose veins.

Studies undertaken in the 1960s showed that lipoflavonoids lessen the effects of Ménière's disease by maintaining inner ear health and also improving circulation in the inner ear.

This latter point is very important to bear in mind if you are considering using lipoflavonoids to help with your tinnitus.

If your tinnitus is age related or noise induced then lipoflavonoids may show no improvement.

However, for those who sufferer from Ménière's Disease or whose tinnitus is as a consequence of allergies or inflammatory disorders, then lipoflavonoids may help with your tinnitus symptoms.

Sometimes it is a matter of trial and error to discover if supplements help improve your symptoms.

*Bioflavonoids were once known as Vitamin P but are not strictly vitamins, even though they have similar characteristics.

Important citrus bioflavonoids include hesperidin, rutin, quercetin and eriodictyl.

Vitamin supplements, combined with a bioflavonoid complex, have been proven to help maintain inner ear health. Although it is not fully understood how it works exactly, eriodicytol glycoside, which is found in citrus fruits and is also a citrus bioflavonoid extract, is the active ingredient that studies have shown helps to maintain inner ear health.

Most "ear health" lipoflavonoid formula's contain eriodictyol glycoside, bioflavonoids and a range of vitamins from the B group.

Lipoflavonoid and Tinnitus Relief

Unless you have experienced tinnitus, it really is difficult to even begin to imagine how distressing and tormenting it is for sufferers. As there is no known medical cure for tinnitus, it is no wonder, therefore, that sufferers search for alternative remedies to afford them some relief.

In addition to the medical research undertaken in the 1960s, many users of lipoflavonoids claim that there has been an improvement in their tinnitus symptoms. Naturally, there are some who see no improvement and this may well be down to the original cause of their tinnitus.

Users claim that the effects of lipoflavonoids take a while to kick in and need time to "build up" in the body. One draw back appears to be the volume of tablets that are needed in order for the lipoflavonoids to be effective. There are now extra strength lipoflavonoid capsules available to purchase but these are more expensive to buy.

You can also buy generic lipoflavonoids which are cheaper than some of the more well known brand names that sell lipoflavonoid formula's for tinnitus relief. However, always check the strength and number of pills before assessing value for money.

These are all points that you should bear in mind before you consider lipoflavonoids as a means of relief from tinnitus.

Bioflavonoid and Spider Veins

Bioflavonoid supplements may also help with bruising and broken blood vessel problems such as spider veins and varicose veins as they can help strengthen the walls of veins and capillaries. Spider veins are very similar to varicose veins except that they are smaller and closer to the surface of the skin. Acute spider veins can be extremely embarrassing as they usually appear on the face.

A citrus bioflavonoid complex containing hesperidin, diosmin and rutin can help when combined with an antioxidant complex of vitamins A, C, and E and zinc.

Natural Sources of Bioflavonoids

While dietary supplements can provide concentrated levels of citrus bioflavonoids, there are also many natural sources of bioflavonoids that you can include in your diet. These include the white pith and fruit of citrus fruits such as oranges, grapefruit and lemons. Other good sources of bioflavonoids include apricots, cherries, blackcurrants, grapes, peppers and prunes.
