Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for March 17, 2008

Today I come across something today that I’ve overlooked and has a close relationship with copper.

Hesperidin & Copper

Flavonoids / Bioflavonoids (bioflavinoids) are accessory nutrients to form an ascorbic acid or Vitamin C complex. Rutin and hesperidin are part of this Vitamin P group and function synergistically with Vitamin C in regard to maintaining healthy capillaries, to help form collagen in connective tissue,
to help heal wounds, and to support a healthy immune system.
 
Copper is the most common and potent inhibitor of hesperidin and Vitamin C, being the reason why high levels of copper create a greater risk for vascular degeneration, which in turn requires greater intake of Vitamin C, sulfur, chromium, or molybdenum to lower copper – to make it more bioavailable,
otherwise hesperidin levels will not go up, no matter how much is supplemented.  Abnormal liver functions, triggered by drugs, hormones – particularly elevated estrogen – alcohol, etc., or the structural changes experienced during pregnancy, as well as lack of exercise and excessive amounts of time spent in a sitting position can be equally responsible to promote vascular degeneration.
 
Hesperidin has a right-sided cell receptor (as has copper), so medical problems associated with its deficiency, and/or with copper excesses, are invariably right-sided as well. It is not unusual to see hemorrhoids or varicose veins being noticeably worse on one side only. Rutin is inhibited mostly by chromium, and since chromium levels are on average not as high as copper levels, rutin levels are invariably higher than hesperidin levels as long as dietary intake of rutin and hesperidin are similar.
