In this article we aim to shine some light on how Vitamin C can help you boost your immune system this winter.
When fighting infection, your immune system is dependent on Vitamin C. It swiftly depletes your body’s store, and requires frequent replenishment.
Because our body doesn’t make Vitamin C naturally – we need to make sure we top up our Vitamin C levels regularly, to help support our immune system, especially at certain times of the year, when flu and viruses are more regular.
Vitamin C can be found in a variety of foods, such as oranges, peppers, strawberries, blackcurrants, broccoli and potatoes.
Different foods contain different amounts of Vitamin C – so it’s important to bear this in mind if you are looking to boost your immune system. For example, every serving of Vita-C is equivalent to eating 19 small oranges, or 1kg of broccoli – so you might be eating the right foods, but it’s essential you get the right amount of Vitamin C for it to make an impact.
According to the NHS, adults aged between 19 to 64 need 40mg of Vitamin C a day.
Supplementing the right amount of Vitamin C can be difficult, especially when you live a busy life – that’s why we created Vita-C. Vita-C is a high strength formula of Vitamin C – with 1000mg in every serving. It’s powerful Vitamin C – so you get the full effects.
We don’t all have the same knowledge as a doctor, or nutritionalist when it comes to supplement knowledge, but there’s one key thing you need to know, and that’s how your body absorbs a supplement makes all the difference.
When you take a tablet, or pill – due to the harsh environment of the digestive system – 80% of the pill is lost in the digestive process. This means that Vitamin C isn’t carried through your blood stream to the places that your body needs it, to strengthen your immune system.
Vita-C is a liposomal supplement, this means it uses a nano-technology called Liposomes to deliver the Vitamin C throughout our body.
In fact, using a Liposomal supplement helps your body get up top 6x absorption than other oral forms, so those Vitamin C pills you’ve been taking – is essentially money down the toilet.
Liposomes are a nano-technology that have been around since the 1960s, yet you’ve probably never heard of them.
Liposomes are tiny lipid bubbles – so tiny that the human eye can’t see them, in fact they are a 1/1000th the width of a single human hair.
What makes liposomes special, is that they are made out of the same fat—phospholipids—as our own cell membranes.
With Vita-C, Vitamin C is wrapped around a liposome. In the digestive process, liposomes latch on to our cells, making it easier for our body to absorb Vitamin C.
With normal capsules or tablets, the vitamin c isn’t as potent, it doesn’t get absorbed enough to have the impact your body needs to strengthen your immune system. With liposomal Vitamin C – your body is able to absorb up to 6x more Vitamin C compared to other forms.
Liposomes are the difference that makes the difference.
