Why does the body need vitamin C?®

The human body, unlike many other animals, is unable to produce its own vitamin C² and must get it from food and/or supplementation, but it is difficult to maintain high levels for long periods as unused vitamin C is excreted by the body.³

It is therefore important to take vitamin C regularly and in a highly absorbable form to maintain adequate levels.

VITAMIN C LIPO-SACHETS® are the real, unadulterated taste of liposomal vitamin C, free from sugar and artificial flavours. If you’re new to liposomal vitamin C then be aware – the initial taste may not be what you expect. But with repeated use you’ll get accustomed to the distinctive taste and begin to discover the health benefits.

As an option to get started, we recommend mixing the sachet contents or chasing it with cold water, juice or pre-made smoothie.

How does the technology in VITAMIN C LIPO-SACHETS® work?

VITAMIN C LIPO-SACHETS® contain vitamin C encapsulated in the patented LIPOSHELL® formula. High quality liposomes act as stable carriers, encasing and protecting the vitamin C from degradation by substances within the body’s digestive system. This allows the vitamin C to be effectively transported to targeted locations in the body where it is required, resulting in more vitamin C being made available to the cells for optimal absorption.
