Vitamin C is one of the most widely recognised and used antioxidants in the world. It plays a critical role in helping the immune system, joints and arteries to heal and function properly. Liposomal vitamin C makes use of patented technology that encapsulates the vitamin C molecules in liposomal micro-spheres – made from essential phospholipids – which protect the vitamin C from destruction in the digestive system and ensure rapid delivery into your bloodstream. It is a gentle, gut friendly vitamin C with enhanced bio-availability in capsule form. This formulation is suitable for diabetics and vegetarians and supports Paleo, Zone and vegan diets and is free from sugar, soya, gluten, preservatives and artificial additives.
Vitamin C contributes to immune defense by supporting various cellular functions of both the innate and adaptive immune system. Vitamin C accumulates in phagocytic cells, such as neutrophils, and can enhance chemotaxis, phagocytosis, generation of reactive oxygen species, and ultimately microbial killing.
