Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C 30 Pack - 5.7ml Each

[tab]

Why Lypo-Spheric Is Better
Ordinary forms of oral vitamin C - tablets, capsules, powders, liquids and even the vitamin C from your diet - may not be processed and absorbed efficiently by your body. As a result, much of this vitamin C is never transferred into your bloodstream and even less of it makes it into your cells where it's needed most. In fact, when you take 1,000 mg or more of regular oral vitamin C, more than half of it is passed as waste by your body.1

Until now...

LivOnLabs' patented Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C "Lypo C" encapsulates the C molecules in liposomes made from Essential Phospholipids, which protect the vitamin C from destruction in the digestive system. Within minutes of taking Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C, liposomes filled with vitamin C are transported into your bloodstream, and into your cells.

 

Our Technology Makes All the Difference
LivOn Laboratories was the first company to utilize a highly sophisticated liposomal technology, which originated in the pharmaceutical industry. With LivOn's Lypo-Spheric products, your body receives essential phospholipids with the vitamin C ...delivering a powerful "1-2 punch". So not only do you get all the benefits of vitamin C, but you also help satisfy the body's ever-growing need for essential phospholipids including Phosphatidylcholine (PC). PC is one of the most important phospholipids required for many vital functions in maintaining a healthy cardiovascular, reproductive, immune, and nervous system.*

This liposome encapsulated form of vitamin C is the first choice of people who really understand bioavailability and the importance of high-dose vitamin C. Other forms of vitamin C succumb to absorption barriers that vastly limit the level of vitamin C that can enter the bloodstream. Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C crashes through these barriers to get high potency vitamin C where you need it most, your cells.

7 Reasons You Need Vitamin C

  1. Helps protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals*

  2. Supports a healthy immune system*

  3. Supports collagen production for healthier skin, muscles and joints*

  4. Promotes muscle repair*

  5. Supports healthy gums*

  6. Supports optimal overall health*

  7. Supports Paleo, Zone and Vegan Diets[/tab]

Lifestream Advanced Probiotics Mood + Immune Capsules 60

[tab]

Lifestream Mood+Immune is a revolutionary probiotic with clinically researched strains of beneficial bacteria that support a healthy digestive system and immune response. It also supports the two way connection our gut fosters with our mental health and wellbeing.

The mind-gut axis is a two-way highway between our digestive system and parts of our mind which control our nervous system and our emotions.

Keeping the two-lane mind-gut highway in good working order through the right balance of good bacteria supports those stress induced digestive imbalances, immunity, and a healthy mood.

Sanderson ProbioFX Gut Restore Chewable Tablets 40

Probiotics are‘good’bacteria, living organisms, that scientific trials indicate confer a health benefit on the body by improving intestinal microbial balance and so inhibiting pathogens or toxin producing bacteria.

Probiotics are found in some foods like yoghurt or fermented milk, and in dietary supplements generally as tablets, powders or capsules. There many different species and strains of probiotic bacteria and it can be confusing. It is better to choose an identified strain of probiotic organism as these strains have been developed and scientifically tested for effectiveness. Studies confirm that health benefits are strain-specific and only rarely apply to generic species. A strain with more research evidience is more likely to be effective.

Probiotics are generally recommended after a course of antibiotics or other gastric disturbance to restore gastro-intestinal balance. They have been shown to support a strong immune system and resistance to some allergies among other things. Probiotics may also be taken to support resistance to travellers’ stomach upsets.

SANDERSON ProbioFX Gut Restore helps restore balance to gut and bowel flora after gastro-intestinal upset, diarrhoea, or post-antibiotics. It may also be taken preventatively to help support resistance to traveller’s diarrhoea.
