Vitamin C is essential for regulating collagen synthesis in the body. Collagen acts as a scaffolding material, keeping the skin firm and taut. However, by the age of 40, we may have lost up to 30% of the collagen we had when we were younger. What is produced is of poorer quality. Wrinkling and sagging are two visible signs of collagen erosion. Unfortunately, clinical evidence on the efficacy of applying Vitamin C topically to improve skin appearance is inconclusive.
However, Vitamin C continues to play an important role in improving the appearance and feel of skin.
After all, doesn't beauty start from within? Science would concur! Because a recent clinical trial discovered:
Throughout the 4-week clinical trial, participants who took 1000mg of liposomal Vitamin C orally saw a significant improvement in skin elasticity.
The study also found that:
Over the same period, participants who used 1000mg liposomal Vitamin C improved skin firmness and elasticity by 32.7 percent. Skin firmness and elasticity had already improved by 15.1 percent after just 14 days (over 1 percent a day on average).
Liposomal Vitamin C is a liquid form of ascorbic acid that ensures maximum Vitamin C absorption for maximum benefit.
Unlike traditional pills or tablets, where up to 85 percent of the nutrient is lost during digestion, Vita-liposomal C's Vitamin C provides maximum bioavailability of this important vitamin. This has a huge positive impact not only on collagen production – with the associated benefits to hair, skin, and nails – but also on tiredness and fatigue reduction, and immune system support.
Furthermore, Vita-liposomal C's Vitamin C acts as an anti-oxidative defense mechanism, reducing the cellular damage caused by free radicals.
The liposomal formulation of Vitamin C contains only natural Vitamin C. Each serving contains 1000mg of ascorbic Vitamin C derived from sunflowers, which is the type found naturally in foods.
