Altrient C has become one of our most popular Vitamin C supplements in Organico this year! It offers loads of benefits for health and beauty. But just why is vitamin C so important for staying strong and healthy, and what challenges are there in getting enough?
Vitamin C is essential to health
Vitamin C is nothing new to the health scene; we’ve known for a long time that inadequate amounts of vitamin C can turn into a life or death situation by way of scurvy. But what is relatively new information (and exciting, if you ask us) is that vitamin C provides powerful health and beauty benefits that go beyond a healthy immune system...but it all depends on the source of the nutrient (more on that in a moment).
We’re big believers that a diverse, balanced, plant-rich diet is the foundation of optimal health, but we’re also realistic—with our food system in the shape it’s in, and our lives as busy as they are, it’s not always possible to ensure we’re getting sufficient nutrition from our food. That’s where an effective supplementation regimen comes into play.
Do we need to be mindful of our vitamin C levels?
In fact, yes. And that’s because we humans are one of only a few known species that can’t manufacture our own vitamin C. We have to rely on external sources, such as diet and nutritional supplements, to maintain optimal levels of vitamin C in our bodies.
The benefits of vitamin C
Studies have shown that vitamin C is a powerful player in maintaining and improving health in various ways:
- Vitamin C protects against and relieves the symptoms of viruses.
- There’s evidence showing that vitamin C can improve mood in healthy people and help alleviate the suffering of people affected by depression and anxiety.
- More research is needed, but it’s starting to look like vitamin C can improve the effectiveness of cancer treatment.
- Research suggests that the antioxidant action of vitamin C protects against cognitive decline and the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
- Feeling worn out? Vitamin C is believed to reduce tiredness and fatigue.
- As a regulator of the production of collagen, vitamin C is vital in the maintenance of healthy muscles, blood vessels, cartilage, bones, teeth and skin.
- It turns out vitamin C does just as much for beauty as it does for health. It slows the aging process, protects against sun damage, and encourages a natural glow.
A better vitamin C
So vitamin C is great—that’s indisputable—and for a lot of us, going on a supplement is a good idea to reap the health and beauty benefits it offers. But until recently, there wasn’t a supplement that was proven to be stable enough to withstand the destructive forces of the digestive system.
And then we found Altrient C.
LivOn, the manufacturers of Altrient C, explained the situation:
Most ordinary forms of oral Vitamin C – tablets, capsules, powders, liquids and even dietary sources are not metabolised efficiently due to tightly regulated absorption controls in the body. This means that levels of vitamin C in the intestines reach saturation point at as little as 200mg. In fact, the more we take in the less we absorb. Thus, very little reaches your bloodstream let alone the cells where it is needed most.
And then they provided a solution:
Altrient C offers the perfect solution because of its scientifically proven liposomal delivery method. This powerful form of transportation encapsulates the nutrient in a microscopic phospholipid bubble that carries it within minutes directly to the cells, protecting it from the destructive elements of the digestive system.
LivOn set out to back up their claims by commissioning the Princeton Consumer Research Centre to conduct an independent double-blind, placebo controlled study. The result? Participants saw “61.4% increase in skin firmness and elasticity and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on both the face and body. Those given placebo treatment showed no change at all.” For more detail, see the clinical trial paper.
Since then, Altrient C has started popping up as an essential skin product in the celebrity world. But even more important to us, we’re getting great customer feedback from those of you who have tried Altrient C.
More than skin deep
We’re all for the beauty benefits Altrient C offers, but we’re just as keen to stock a supplement that promotes all the associated health benefits of vitamin C. And that’s why we’re excited to offer a product that has been shown to be effectively absorbed by the body.
