Vitamin C for the win.

April 9, 2024

Vitamin C has long been known to have many benefits for the body but the most well-known is to support the immune system. Vitamin C is an essential vitamin which means that our body can’t produce it, we need to consume it via our diet or supplementing with it.

Vitamin C can be found in many fruits and vegetables including citrus fruits, kiwifruit, strawberries, capsicum, broccoli, and other dark leafy greens. Vitamin C is also water soluble so you need to consume it every day because it won’t be stored in the body, but it also degrades with heat so when cooking your vitamin C rich veges you may not be getting much at all.

That’s why supplementing with vitamin C can be beneficial. But you want to make sure you are getting your vitamin C in a highly absorbable form like Good Health’s Viralex Lipo Pro C, which contains scientifically researched Liposomal Pureway®- C, a fast-absorbing form of vitamin C. Pureway®- C utilises an effective delivery system, blending in with fatty acids in the gut and blood stream to be easily recognized by our cells, allowing more vitamin C to be absorbed. Each serving provides 1000mg of vitamin C, ensuring support for a healthy immune system, iron absorption, and general health and wellbeing.

During the winter months utilising a supplemental vitamin C can be beneficial because we are exposed to more immune threats and vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can support your body’s natural defences. Antioxidants are molecules that support the immune system. They do so by protecting cells from harmful molecules called free radicals which can cause oxidative stress. Vitamin C is also known to support iron absorption, especially that of non-heme iron found in plant food. Generally animal sources of iron or heme iron are readily absorbed and utilised by the body.

Another benefit of Vitamin C is its support for wound healing and supports the collagen matrix of connective tissue such as tendons, ligaments and even the skin. Pureway®- C has been shown to work fast at supporting these parameters.  Pureway®- C is more rapidly absorbed and leads to higher serum vitamin C levels.

So, you can see that the many benefits of vitamin C makes it a winner.
Good Health’s Viralex Lipo Pro C is an On-the-Go solution that can be taken with or without water, a yummy sour peach passionfruit sherbet flavour. Good Health’s Viralex Lipo Pro C comes in a box of 20 powder sachet sticks so you can conveniently take them with you anywhere.
