LIPOSOMAL VITAMIN C
Vitamin C is one of the safest and most effective nutrients. It has a range of scientifically proven benefits. Studies have found that maintaining consistently high blood levels of vitamin C protects cardiovascular health, boosts immunity, protects degeneration of eyes, boosts brain function and skin health.
75-90mg daily is the recommended daily amount to prevent deficiency diseases such as scurvy. However this is a sub optimal amount to maintain optimal health. Studies have found up to 500mg daily is needed in addition to eating 5 portions of fruit and vegetables. Modern day demands increase our demand for this essential nutrient. There are many reasons for this that include, frequent infections, environmental toxins, stress, medications and chronic disease. Modern day agriculture and food storage makes vitamin c in foods less readily available and difficult to obtain the amounts needed to sustain health.
Raw Sport uses liposomal technology to optimise the absorption and bioavailability of the vitamin C into tissues and cells of the body. The ascorbic acid is packaged into tiny structures called liposomes. A liposome is a sphere composed of a type of lipid called a phospholipid, which contains a small compartment where nutrients can be incorporated. Liposomes are made using the same phospholipids as the body’s cell membranes, which means they can effectively merge and deposit into the tissues and organs. Standard vitamin C supplements are delivered to the gut lining and downgraded, as there are only a limited number of specialised transporters to deliver the vitamin C to the bloodstream. Liposomal technology bypasses this process completely, which means up to 90% of vitamin C is absorbed. Vitamin C and immunity Vitamin C is an essential nutrient to maintain and boost immunity. A deficiency can result in impaired immunity and higher susceptibility to infections. In turn, infections significantly impact on vitamin C levels due to enhanced inflammation and metabolic requirements. Vitamin C contributes to immune defence by supporting various cellular functions of the innate and adaptive immune system. Vitamin C promotes the production of lymphocytes and phagocytes, white blood cells that protect the body against infection. High intakes of vitamin C help White blood cells function more effectively by offering protection from potentially harmful molecules, such as free radicals. Vitamin C accumulates in phagocytic cells, such as neutrophils, generating reactive oxygen species, which help to kill microbes. The skin is a vital component of the immune system. Vitamin C is actively transported to the skin and acts as an antioxidant, strengthening the skin's barriers. It defends against pathogens and promotes the oxidant scavenging activity of the skin, thereby protecting against environmental oxidative stress.
Vitamin C is a great way to support your immune system and energy levels when feeling run down, or you can take it everyday to support collagen formation and reduce oxidative stress.
