The Importance of Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that our bodies rely on for a multitude of metabolic processes. This valuable micronutrient cannot be synthesized within the body, so we must acquire optimal levels through diet and supplementation.

Discover why Vitamin C is critical for resilient immunity and overall well-being. 

Cardiovascular Support 

Vitamin C helps maintain overall heart and blood vessel health. It inhibits the formation of oxidized LDL, which moves rapidly into arterial walls and is converted into plaque that causes arterial blockage. Vitamin C also improves nitric oxide production, resulting in increased vasodilation of blood vessels.*

Collagen and Connective Tissue 

Vitamin C supports healthy skin, tendons, and ligaments. It helps the body produce collagen and plays a critical role in connective tissue repair. Vitamin C is also a cofactor for the enzymes lysl hydroxylase and prolyl hydroxylase, which promote collagen structure stability.*

Carnitine 

Vitamin C is a cofactor for the enzymes involved in carnitine biosynthesis and transporting fatty acids into the mitochondrial matrix. Carnitine is a vital compound utilized by cells to generate metabolic energy.*

Immune Function 

Vitamin C assists in numerous adaptive and innate immune systems cellular function. It supports intestinal epithelial barrier function, which plays an essential role in protecting against imbalanced microbes and regulating nutrient absorption. It also accumulates in phagocytic cells strengthening the body’s defense mechanisms.*

Overall Health and Wellness  

Vitamin C enhances the body’s ability to endure the impact of oxidative stress. It protects nucleic acids, lipids, proteins, and carbohydrates from damage by oxidants generated during normal cell metabolism and exposure to toxins and pollutants.* 

Vitamin C plays a fundamental role in achieving and maintaining optimal healthRegular intake of this essential micronutrient is important as it is a water-soluble vitamin and is not stored in large quantities in the body 

BioPure® Lipo-C is a versatile formula designed for daily use or as a powerful immune boost, as needed.*  The buffered form of Vitamin C (sodium ascorbate) combined with a proprietary liposomal delivery system decreases issues of bowel intolerance and is less likely to cause gastrointestinal side effects by bypassing absorption constraints posed by the gut.*  

Each 5 ml serving of Lipo-C delivers 1000 mg of Vitamin C.
