Great product to take daily!
Optimal Liposomal Vitamin C by Seeking Health provides 1,000 mg of vitamin C (as sodium ascorbate and ascorbic acid) in a great-tasting liposomal liquid form. Vitamin C is needed by the body to support the immune system, connective tissue and skin, and to recycle glutathione. In the body, as an antioxidant, Vitamin C may help to protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Environmental exposures to free radicals occur every day, from cigarette smoke, air pollution, and ultraviolet light from the sun. Free radicals are also produced as the byproducts of normal metabolic processes. The body also needs vitamin C to make collagen, a protein required for healthy skin and normal wound healing processes.*
Optimal Liposomal Vitamin C uses a unique liposomal delivery method to support optimal absorption of our high-potency vitamin C. A liposome is a tiny phospholipid vesicle that mimics the body’s own cell structure. Liposomes may be better absorbed across cell membranes in a way that is not possible for ordinary water-soluble or fat-soluble nutrients. Our liposomes are composed of non-hydrogenated phospholipids, derived from GMO-free sunflower oil. This is a soy-free product.*

Easy to take
Tastes great, even my 8 year enjoys it.
Great tasting and so easy to use. Also easy on the stomach as I have trouble with some. Just wish it was not from corn as almost all vitamin C is. I can’t take it all the time because of that.
