Vitamin C is an essential vitamin that plays many critical roles in maintaining optimal health. One of its key functions is to support antioxidant defense and the neutralization of free radicals.* It also promotes normal immune function.* Vitamin C also acts as an enzyme cofactor, supporting the synthesis of collagen, carnitine, and neurotransmitters, and other biological functions. Liposomes bond easily with cell membranes to deliver their cargo, which in this case is vitamin C. Liposomes are extremely tiny particles that allow fast absorption in the body, which starts in the mouth. Liposomal delivery provides a well-tolerated, easily absorbed, and highly bioavailable form of vitamin C.
Optimal Vitamin C Hammer provides this essential water-soluble nutrient in a unique liposomal delivery. Liposomes are spheres made of phospholipids, which are the primary building blocks of cell membranes that help facilitate nutrient absorption. Each 5 mL serving (approximately 1 teaspoon) of this lemon-flavored formula provides 1,000 mg of vitamin C as sodium ascorbate. The 130 mg of sodium per serving helps to further support the absorption of vitamin C.
