Vasculitis is inflammation of a blood or lymph vessel.  It may be an autoimmune disorder, or it may simply be caused by hidden allergies.  Almost any substance could be an offender, depending on biochemical individuality.  Common offenders are caffeine (coffee, tea, chocolate, soft drinks), alcohol, vinegar, tree pollen, and airborne chemicals.  Bioflavonoids help to decrease capillary fragility and permeability (e.g., lemon bioflavonoids, rutin, hesperidin, acerola, rose hips).  [See also “Autoimmunity”.]
