Taking Your Daily Dose of Vitamin C Has Never Been Easier

Most people are aware of the general health benefits of popping a handful of your daily vitamins and minerals. We all know that Vitamin C is amazing for supporting immune health. But there are also some added benefits that you might not know about that come part and parcel with your everyday supplements, and when they come with a liposomal delivery system? Even better. 

Vitamin C (AKA ascorbic acid) is a water-soluble vitamin that can be found in some foods such as oranges, strawberries, broccoli and potatoes. However, our body doesn’t produce or store its own supply, hence the need for supplements. Alongside supporting our immune health and assisting with numerous daily body functions, Vitamin C is vital to our body's collagen production (hello plump healthy skin!). Aside from the physical benefits of collagen production, it is also pivotal in supporting wound healing. Vitamin C supports the immune response that works to repair wounds and helps you to bounce back quicker from those irritating bumps, scratches and blemish-causing zits. And just when you thought Vitamin C couldn't help our bodies anymore, it also regenerates other antioxidants such as Vitamin E which supports heart and eye health. Having a selection of high-dose Lipo-Sachets on hand is always a great idea, as they deliver proven superior absorption to standard Vitamin C and can help you support your immune health as we head into the colder months. They are free from alcohol, gluten and GMOs, contain no added sugars, artificial flavours or colours, and are also suitable for vegetarians. If you’re familiar with the brand, you may well know that the taste of the Lipo-Sachets can be… interesting. So here are some tips for making your daily dose go down just that little bit better.


Mix it in your morning smoothie! Getting that Vitamin C boost has never been easier when mixing it in with your nutritious morning smoothies. The key is to add the liquid into the drink after it’s been in the blender. Why? Adding the liquid into the blender or a hot liquid damages the liposomes (the outer coating of liposomes are phospholipids – kind of like a nano fat bubble made of the same material as our cells) which means the active ingredient might not be nano-encapsulated anymore. To put it simply, it disrupts the good stuff in the liquid.


But our personal favourite? Take it in a shot! And no, not the kind of shot you consume late on a night out. Pop the liquid in a small glass of water or juice, swirl it around and knock it back. You’ll barely taste it and it’s the easiest way to get the Vitamin C hit you need if you’re short on time.
