[What is Citrus Aurantium]
Citrus aurantium L, belonging to the family Rutaceae, is widely distributed in China. Zhishi, the Chinese traditional name for Citrus aurantium, has long been a folk medicine in traditional Chinese medicine (TCMto improve indigestion and help stimulate the Qi (energy force).
1. Have the function of antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, hypolipidemic, vasoprotective and anticarcinogenic and cholesterol lowering actions.
2. Have the function of inhibiting following enzymes: Phospholipase A2, lipoxygenase, HMG-CoA reductase and cyclo-oxygenase.
3. Have the function of improving the health of capillaries by reducing the capillary permeability.
4. Have the function of reducing hay fever and other allergic conditions by inhibiting the release of histamine from mast cells. The possible activity of hesperidin could be explained by the inhibition of polyamine synthesis. (bitter orange extract)
Isotonix OPC-3 is a dietary supplement that bears some of the most powerful bioflavonoids currently known to research scientists. These bioflavonoids are scientifically termed oligomeric proanthocyanidins, commonly abbreviated OPCs. The purest and best-researched OPCs chosen for OPC-3 are prepared from grape seed, red wine, bilberries, Pycnogenol from pine bark and citrus fruit. This combination of powerful OPCs is unique to OPC-3, as is the Isotonix® delivery system, which enables rapid and highly efficient absorption of the OPCs. Isotonix OPC-3 has been shown to provide a variety of health benefits including, but not limited to, combating free radicals, demonstrating anti-inflammatory activity, helping maintain healthy cholesterol levels, helping maintain healthy circulation by strengthening capillaries, arteries and veins, helping maintain joint flexibility, helping promote/support cardiovascular health, helping reduce mild menstrual cramping, helping support visual health/visual acuity, scavenging free radicals, promoting healthy blood vessel dilation, promoting healthy nitric oxide levels, supporting a healthy complexion, supporting healthy blood glucose levels, supporting healthy platelet activity and supporting healthy sperm quality.
Condensation polymers are formed when monomers join together, and in the process also form a separate small molecule such as a water molecule. The ends of the monomer molecules must have functional groups that can join with other functional groups on neighbouring molecules.
Condensation polymerisation is the process in which two monomers combine with the elimination of a smaller molecule. One way that two different monomers can combine and in doing so lose a molecule of water and represents condensation polymerisation. This process continues and each remaining end joins with another monomer—each time lengthening the chain. One way to think of this is a “head-to-tail” joining.
Synthetic condensation polymers include nylons and polyesters. Natural condensation polymers include cellulose, cotton, wool, and silk.
Cellulose is a complex carbohydrate or polysaccharide. It is the most abundant biopolymer in nature. Carbohydrates consist of molecules containing C, H and O atoms. Carbohydrates contain many alcohol functional groups.
• Cellulose consists of long chains of β-glucose monomers.
• Glucose is an example of a simple carbohydrate or monosaccharide.
Structure of glucose :
Glucose (C6H12O6) is a ring molecule. The carbon atoms in the ring are numbered as shown. The –OH functional groups may be orientated above or below the plane of the ring. These different orientations at C, produce the alpha and beta forms of the glucose monomers.
• Glucose is an organic compound
• Ring can open up in solution to form a straight-chain structure. Open and chain forms are in equilibrium that cause glucose to exist as anomers, β-glucose and α-glucose.
Biopolymer is a naturally occurring polymer such as cellulose, starch, gluten, DNA and protein.
Formation of cellulose:
Cellulose is a condensation polymer which is formed when glucose monomers condense together through beta-1,4-glycosidic bonds. This involves a reaction between the –OH groups at the C1 and C4 carbons of adjacent glucose molecules.
The process begins by the condensation reaction between two glucose monomers to form a beta-maltose dimer. A water molecule is eliminated during this reaction. More glucose monomers condense and the chain grows until about 10 000 glucose monomers are linked in long, unbranched, ribbon-like strands.
Strong hydrogen bonding exists between –OH groups of neighbouring, close-packed strands. This produces a water-insoluble polymer with great strength and rigidity. Plants use cellulose as a structural carbohydrate for their cell walls.
