But not by you, `cause you forgot to publish. Pity. Nor has anybody else
seen such a thing. Apparently not so easily demonstrated.
Hesperidin and rutin are simply 2 of an amazing number of naturally
occurring flavonoids, which are often used in pills because they ARE cheap.
By-products of the citrus industry. The idea that there's some dynamic
interaction between them in the human body is bizarre. And about what I'd
expect from the source.
