Liposomal C - 10.15 oz
Liposomal C is an extremely bioavailable form of C that is up to 15 times more absorbable than other forms. The nutrients are surrounded by phospholipids, and the body likes this. Once aborbed, the body takes it apart and the vitamin C is exposed and can be used. Vitamin C is most commonly known as the powerful immune booster that it is -- an absolute must when sickness is in sight. However, as the studies of Linus Pauling and many others have discovered, the role of vitamin C is far more expansive than the common cold!
Things that cause high oxidative stress in the body, such as diabetes or smoking, benefit doubly from vitamin C both in the capacity of an anti-inflammatory and an antioxidant. As an antioxidant, vitamin C has also been found in studies to significantly reduce the risk of cataracts.
Vitamin C can help the body excrete uric acid which could possibly aid with conditions that result from high levels of uric acid. It is also frequently used as a type of chelating agent for minerals when deposits in the body are causing damage. It helps in metal ion metabolism, helping to reduce symptoms of heavy metal poisoning (this has often been seen in the case of lead toxicity), and promotes the absorption of iron in the body.
Vitamin C is also necessary in order for collagen to be made in the body. Collagen is what gives strength to hair and nails, and elasticity to the skin. It is used by the blood vessels, and also helps to build up bones (teeth), ligaments, cartilage and tendons, and connective tissues throughout the body. On the "outside" of the body, collagen works to promote wound healing as it repairs skin tissue.
