Vitamin C Lipo-Sachets

Why is vitamin C important?

The human body can’t produce its own vitamin C3 and must get it from food and/or supplements. Not only that, the human body eliminates unused vitamin C, making it difficult to maintain normal concentrations for long periods of time4. To maintain adequate levels, it’s essential to take vitamin C regularly, and in a highly absorbable form.

Who should take Vitamin C?

Almost everyone can benefit from taking vitamin C, but especially if you:

  • Have a compromised immune system
  • Are feeling the symptoms of ills and chills
  • Are feeling ‘run down’, tired or stressed
  • Lead a very active lifestyle or undertake strenuous exercise
  • Are travelling or have just travelled
  • Smoke and/or consume high levels of alcohol
  • Have a pre-existing condition for which vitamin C is recommended as a complementary therapy
  • Live in the city (due to environmental pollutants and toxins)

The benefits of taking VITAMIN C LIPO-SACHETS®
  • Supports the normal function of the immune system
  • Helps to reduce the frequency and severity of ills and chills and supports recovery
  • Helps to protect cells from harmful free-radicals due to its antioxidant properties
  • Supports the production of collagen, essential for maintaining the skin, blood vessels, bones, cartilage, gums and teeth
  • Supports the formation of connective tissue to assist in wound healing
  • Supports iron absorption
