Summary of Collagen and Liposomal Vitamin C
Most people understand what collagen is, but many are not yet familiar with liposomal vitamin C. Both of these substances are beneficial for improving gut health and reducing the inflammation that can cause stiff, swollen joints.
Benefits of Collagen
Collagen is a protein found naturally in the human body. In fact, it is the most abundant protein in the body. It is located in the musculoskeletal system, in blood vessels, and also in the digestive system.
It is often thought of as the “glue” that holds the body together. Even before the age of 30, most people have started losing their collagen stores. By 40, it is depleting more quickly than we can produce it.
Though it is mostly known for keeping skin youthful, collagen is vital in maintaining a healthy digestive system. It helps repair leaky gut by sealing the intestines and protecting them from toxins in the digestive tract.
Collagen is necessary to “heal, seal, and repair” the gut lining and return the digestive system to its natural balance.
Benefits of Liposomal Vitamin C
Liposomes are “nano-sized” transporters. They are responsible for carrying nutrients directly from the blood to the body’s cells. Liposomal vitamin C is a type of vitamin C that is more easily absorbed by the body. Microscopic droplets of fat-soluble liposomes encapsulate the vitamin C, making it easier to transport and access.
Nearly 80% of water-soluble vitamin C is excreted from the body, but almost 90% of liposomal vitamin C is directly absorbed into the digestive tract cells.
Liposomal vitamin C is easier on the gut and may help reduce the GI symptoms related to taking high doses of water-soluble vitamin C. Vitamin C is an important supplement for reducing inflammatory markers. It has effectively reduced the inflammatory symptoms associated with colds, flu, and seasonal allergies.
