Today we are going to delve into the world of Vitamin C. Just a bit at least. I think it is safe to say that just about everyone has heard of vitamin C and could probably even tell you where to get a heaping dose (think citrus). But did you know that humans are one of the only species that can’t naturally produce it? Fear not! All this means for us is that we have to eat our way to a healthier immune system, and who doesn’t love a good snack? No time to throw back a fresh squeezed orange juice? Running too late to eat a grapefruit? Still nothing to worry about. As you may have seen in our weekly video, we offer an amazing product from Dr. Mercola, Liposomal Vitamin C!
Now you may be asking yourself, “What even is Liposomal Vitamin C?” Let me tell you here and now, its just a fancy way of saying that this version of that most crucial vitamin is more “bioavailable”. Again with the strange words, I know. To put it simply, our bodies aren’t that great at absorbing everything we throw in it and when something is more bioavailable, that means you get more of what you need. Any excess that isn’t absorbed leaves the body naturally.
So now that you know the what, how and why of Liposomal Vitamin C you might be wondering if it’s only good for your immune system. The short answer? No. Vitamin C is paramount to our continued health as it is responsible for the growth and repair of all body tissues. It even helps with the production of collagen, absorption of iron, and the maintenance of cartilage, bone and even teeth! With so many parts and systems in your body relying on vitamin C, it’s easy to understand why we feel the way we do about this product.
