Vitamin C According to Merriam Webster

Dictionary Definition of Vitamin C

According to Merriam Webster:

Vitamin C:   noun

“A water-soluble vitamin C6H8O6 found in plants and especially in fruits and leafy vegetables or made synthetically and used in the prevention and treatment of scurvy and as an antioxidant for foods - called ascorbic acid.”


Vitamin C - The Misunderstood and Underappreciated Vitamin:

Historically, we’ve been taught, as Merriam Webster proclaims, that Vitamin C prevents and treats scurvy.  The inference is that if you take just a little bit regularly, scurvy will never be a problem.  Well, that is absolutely true.  Although small doses of Vitamin C alleviate the visible signs of Vitamin C deficiency, like scurvy, it doesn’t address the invisible needs of our bodies that higher doses will solve.

You will learn just how important it is to get the appropriate amount of Vitamin C your body needs, and how difficult it is to meet those needs through diet alone.  Supplementation, in addition to a healthy Vitamin C rich diet is the key to optimum health.  On the other hand, you will learn the problems your body may encounter with insufficient vitamin C intake.

Studies have indicated this great vitamin has so many other potentially great benefits as listed below:

  • Stress buster
  • Immune system booster
  • Anti aging properties
  • Synthesis of Collagen
  • Intravenous treatment of disease
  • Heart health link
  • Fights depression
  • Essential nutrient
  • Antioxidant
  • Fights inflammation
  • Knocks out Cortisol
  • Muscle recovery
  • A key component in fighting Osteoporosis
  • Wound healing
  • Improved sleep
  • Helps with drug addiction withdrawal
  • Link between low Vitamin C intake and risk of death

Inescapable Truth About Avoiding Disease:

One fact that all doctors agree is that a strong immune system is key to recovering from an infection, neutralizing and eliminating a toxin, and bringing diseased cells back to a state of good health.  A competent immune system is the best way to keep a disease from developing and taking hold in the first place.  Vitamin C plays a huge roll in this process.


Liposomal Encapsulation Technology:

Where microscopic healthy fat particles made up of phospholipids along with water soluble vitamins and minerals deliver therapeutic substances to specific tissues of the body, without affecting any other part of the body.  A targeted delivery system if you will.

LivOn Labs uses this encapsulation technology to protect the Vitamin C from harsh stomach acid on its journey to the targeted area.  That is the key to presenting a nutrient for maximum absorbency in the blood stream at the cellular level for optimum effect.


Is LivOn Labs Encapsulated Vitamin C Easy to Take?

Characteristically, health supplements are full of things you don’t really want, like flavours, sweeteners and artificial colours.  Bulking agents in pills make it hard for children to swallow.  One of the benefits of LivOn Labs Lypo-Spheric® Vitamin C is that it’s in the form of a gel, packaged in a small packet making it easy to take.

LivOn Labs supplements are completely unadulterated, all natural, unsweetened and extremely pure.  Simply squeeze the gel into a small glass of juice or just plain water, stir, then drink it down in one go.  Or, like myself, I just squeeze the packet straight into my mouth, then swallow it.
