Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and immune booster. There are studies that show vitamin C is effective in reducing both the severity of symptoms and the duration of the common cold. Vitamin C is known to effectively support the body’s anti-bacterial and anti-viral requirements when cold and flu symptoms are present.

Vitamin C is not made within the body and it is water soluble so the body does not regularly store it; therefore, we all need it on a daily basis from our diet and supplementation. The requirement for vitamin C in smokers is increased as smoking rapidly decreases vitamin C in the body. Vitamin C is vital for stress reduction as it plays an important role in adrenal function. Vitamin C is utilised by the adrenal glands in the production of all of the adrenal hormones (mostly cortisol). When you are under stress, your vitamin C is rapidly used up to produce cortisol and other stress related hormones. Vitamin C helps to strengthen the capillary and cell walls and is integral for collagen formation. This makes it beneficial in preventing bruising, promoting healing and helping to improve gum health. Vitamin C is also a natural anti-histamine. High doses of vitamin C can block the effect of inflammatory mediators produced by the body in response to pollen.

LYPO-CAPS Vitamin C is made of liposomes that are created with technology to encapsulate the vitamin C molecule within a liposome made from soy lecithin. A liposome is a small vesicle made of a phospholipid bilayer similar to the structure of the cells within your body. This form of vitamin C is absorbed within the small intestine into the lymphatic system, bypassing the normal route and therefore enhancing the delivery into the body and cells. When this encapsulated vitamin C is in the body, it is more likely to be utilised effectively, rather than being quickly excreted by the kidneys into the urine and passed from the body
