Weighing up the benefits of the newest vitamin C supplement
Known as the ‘rock star’ of vitamin C, Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C is quickly becoming the talk of the town when it comes to vitamin C supplements.
Even celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian swear by it, saying it’s the “best way to take vitamin C.” So is it all just a celebrity fad or does Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C live up to the hype?
How is Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C different from other supplements?
Many vitamin C supplements come in the form of a dissolvable tablet or powder sachet. While these supplements contain high levels of vitamin C, they don’t always absorb well. Often, they break down in the digestive system before getting to the bloodstream and cells.
In fact, Dr Bogdan Poppa from Core Med Science says “only about 18% of the vitamin C we get from food is available in our blood stream, and the amount of vitamin C we get from normal capsule or powdered supplements is often far less.”
Lypo-Spheric vitamin C, on the other hand, works by using liposomes to protect the active nutrient from destruction in the digestive system. By improving the absorption levels, Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C helps protect cells from damage, supports a healthy immune system, and promotes muscle repair and energy.
Recent clinical trials back this up, showing that Lypo-Spheric vitamin C can be twice as effective as some other supplements.
Many people use it as a daily supplement or a boost to the immune system to protect against sickness.
