Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble anti-oxidant vitamin. Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen and dentin. Collagen is the structural component of blood vessels, bones, ligaments and tendons. Dentin is the structural component of teeth.
Oxidation of LDL cholesterol particles is believed to play a role in atherosclerosis that can lead to heart attacks and strokes. Antioxidants like vitamin C are believed to combat oxidation and retard the development of atherosclerosis. In early stages of atherosclerosis, it appears that some toxic lipids make white blood cells stick to the arterial wall, and start an inflammation process that ultimately can lead to heart disease and stroke. There’s a protein in LDL, the “bad” cholesterol in your blood, which if damaged by toxic lipids can increase the chance of atherosclerotic lesions.
We recommend Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C because of its superior absorption and bioavailability. Phospholipids create vitamin C- filled liposomes that are instantly absorbed by the small intestine and transported directly to the liver. Being absorbed in your small intestine means no gastric upset and no diarrheal flushing effect. This form of vitamin C delivers bio-available vitamin C directly to your system, equivalent to 8,000 mg of vitamin C. The phospholipids are actually lecithin, 3000 mg, which is extremely beneficial for brain
