Why Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient and a powerful antioxidant which helps ensure your body’s good health. If we do not obtain a certain minimum daily amount, adverse health effects including scurvy, can occur.
In order to obtain the vitamin C our bodies need, we must obtain it daily through our diet (from fruits, juices and other foods) and/or through the use of a vitamin C supplement, such as Altrient® C.
How Much Vitamin C is Enough?
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) have established a common standard for “the average daily level of intake sufficient to meet the nutrient requirements of nearly all (97%-98%) healthy individuals.” This NIH Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for vitamin C is 75 mg for women and 90 mg for men. But it has also issued a Tolerable Upper Intake Level (UL) of vitamin C. For men and women ages 19 and older, this UL is 2,000 mg per day. Obtaining this level of vitamin C from your daily diet would be difficult if not impossible. However, high-performance Altrient® C can help you easily achieve this level and beyond without the side effects that ordinary vitamin C can produce.
The Science Behind Altrient® C
Utilizing Liposome Encapsulated Delivery, a delivery system originating in the pharmaceutical industry, Altrient® C delivers high doses of vitamin C that help promote muscle repair and recovery*, support a healthy immune system* and replenish energy naturally*.
Altrient® C is the first choice of people who really understand bioavailability and the importance of high-dose vitamin C. Other forms of vitamin C rapidly crash into an absorption barrier that vastly limits the level of vitamin C that can enter the bloodstream… and the vitamin C that doesn’t get absorbed, gets flushed. (Important note: all the vitamin C in your food is just as restricted by this absorption barrier.) In stark contrast, the liposomes that encapsulate Altrient® C gently slip across the intestinal wall and into the blood. That’s because they are able to completely bypass a very restrictive nutrient transport system that radically limits the bioavailability of all non-liposome encapsulated forms of vitamin C. A recent clinical trial by world-renowned vitamin C expert and pharmacologist, Steve Hickey, PhD, shows that Altrient® C is able to produce serum levels of vitamin C nearly double those thought theoretically possible with any oral form of vitamin C. This astounding level of bioavailability not only dramatically increases the amount of vitamin C in the blood, but recent thermographic microscopy provides visible evidence that it also aids its entry into individual cells. Try it and you’ll see and feel superior delivery and enhanced results for yourself — guaranteed!
