All about: GO Healthy GO LYPO-C Vitamin C

Wherever you are in the world, chances are you are dealing with stress and unpredictable weather, yes? Both wreck havoc on your immune system, meaning that you need to give it all the help it needs to keep strong and healthy.
Easier said than done however, and I’m a huge fan of taking supplements to work with my diet and exercise resolutions at keeping illness at bay. Down Under Winter is definitely here, and we are feeling the symptoms of ills and chills that come with dark, cold and wet days. Add school holidays to the mix and my home is a veritable petri dish – with all of the joy that brings! (not)
Key to keeping well is taking regular Vitamin C, sometimes loads. The human body is unable to manufacture it though and relies on daily dietary intake to meet its needs.  Vitamin C’s main function in the body is its role in producing collagen, the substance that makes up ligaments, tendons and connective tissue that connect and support the human body. Vitamin C supplementation has been shown to enhance the immune system; promote wound healing; support neurotransmitter and hormone production and promote the health of all cells in the body. It is one of the most important antioxidants in the body, working both inside and outside the cells where it provides front line antioxidant protection. Vitamin C deficiency can result in a diminished immune response, susceptibility to infection and slow wound healing. In other words: yes, you need it.
A few years ago now local beauty powerhouse Lucy Vincent-Marr told me one of her wellness go-to’s was Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C, and I got on the bandwagon immediately. Back then it was still a relatively new form of Vitamin C, that is made by encapsulating Vitamin C 
in tiny spheres of essential phospholipids known as Liposomes. This innovative technology of encapsulation helps to protect the Vitamin C, while the phospholipids are easily absorbed by our cells, increasing bioavailability and transporting it directly into the bloodstream and cells. This superior absorption offers powerful antioxidant protection and enhances the immune benefits that Vitamin C can offer. “It’s in a gel form and works faster than any Vitamin C I’ve ever tried,” Lucy told me, “it’s incredibly potent and behaves in a completely unique way in your body that gets rid of a sore throat in literally, half a day.”
I sourced my own supply locally, which was pricey and came in little sachets that had to be emptied carefully into small amounts of water and quite literally, “shot” back. This meant that an amount was inevitably wasted, and at over $50 a box that wasn’t ideal. Other versions later arrived that involved taking the gel directly from the sachet into your mouth but again, less than ideal.
So…. It is with great excitement that I announce that GO Healthy have decided that it is about time that they release the hero of Vitamin C with GO Healthy GO LYPO-C! The rock star of vitamin C is this time in a capsule form, meaning zero fuss and zero waste – magic!
During this time of year, our body tends to require more Vitamin C than usual, so taking GO Healthy GO LYPO-C during this time is recommended and outrageously easy. High doses of Vitamin C can be a great natural support to the body in response to pollen too, making it great for allergy sufferers.
GO Healthy GO LYPO-C Vitamin C is just RRP$29.90 for 60 Soft Gel Capsules and RRP$49.90 for 120 Soft Gel Capsules. Take two soft gel capsules daily -  best taken on an empty stomach – and reap the rewards.
