Great way to get the specials when not in town, but need to arrange the loyalty points system for those with their cards.

Got Me Through The Winter!
Would recommend - yes

I have been really impressed with this product. My immunity has been put to the test like never before with chemo and other treatments. So for this reason I have been taking this product regularly to keep my Vitamin C levels up. These tablets are really easy to take and I have even managed to get through Winter without a cold which is pretty great.

Dosage:

Take two softgel capsules daily. Best taken on an empty stomach.

Description:

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and immune booster. There are studies that show vitamin C is effective in supporting the reduction of the severity and duration of ills and chills. Vitamin C is not made within the body and it is water soluble so the body does not regularly store it; therefore, we all need it on a daily basis from our diet and supplementation.

The requirement for vitamin C in smokers is increased as smoking rapidly decreases vitamin C in the body. Vitamin C is vital for stress reduction as it plays an important role in adrenal function. Vitamin C is utilised by the adrenal glands in the production of all of the adrenal hormones (mostly cortisol). When you are under stress, your vitamin C is rapidly used up to produce cortisol and other stress related hormones. Vitamin C helps to strengthen the capillary and cell walls and is integral for collagen formation. This makes it beneficial in preventing bruising, promoting healing and helping to improve gum health. Vitamin C is also a natural anti-histamine. High doses of vitamin C can block the effect of inflammatory mediators produced by the body in response to pollen.

Lighthouse Lypo-Caps Vitamin C is made of liposomes that are created with technology to encapsulate the vitamin C molecule within a liposome made from soy lecithin. A liposome is a small vesicle made of a phospholipid bilayer similar to the structure of the cells within your body. This form of vitamin C is absorbed within the small intestine into the lymphatic system, bypassing the normal route and therefore enhancing the delivery into the body and cells. When this encapsulated vitamin C is in the body, it is more likely to be utilised effectively, rather than being quickly excreted by the kidneys into the urine and passed from the body.

Benefits:

  • Increased bioavailability
  • Contains essential phospholipids
  • Superior vitamin C absorption
  • Antioxidan protection and immunity boosting

Each capsule contains,

Vitamin C 500g
 - as ascorbic acid
Lecithin 550mg
 - providing essential phospholipids

(lecithin is derived from non-GMO soy)
If symptoms persist or if taking prescription medication, consult your Healthcare Professional 

Those with kidney failure or a history of kidney stones should take vitamin C only under medical supervision

Not recommended during pregnancy or lactation
