LivOn Labs Vitamins
We all know how important vitamins are for our health but just as important as what you're taking is how you're taking them. Tablets and capsules have to be broken down in your stomach meaning that they can lose some of their potency in the process. Enter LivOn Lab's lypo-spheric vitamins, the gold standard of supplementation. I have sworn by them for over a decade so I can tell you firsthand what a difference they make. They developed a liposomal delivery system that protects the vitamins from being broken down by stomach acid and allows them instead to be absorbed in the blood stream and delivered directly to the cells that need them most. This bioavailability means that you get 100% assimilation, a rarity among supplements. The easiest way to take them is to add one packet to 2 oz (a shot glass) of your favorite cold liquid and shoot it back in one gulp. Not sure where to start or what you need? Below is a breakdown of their products so you can decide which ones are right for you.
You probably reach for vitamin C whenever you're feeling under the weather but it actually has benefits far beyond helping you kick that cold. Vitamin C works at the cellular level to protect your body from the damage caused by free radicals. So while this does boost your immune system it also benefits the skin by increasing collagen production and promoting muscle and tissue repair. I take one packet daily because anything that helps both my immune system and my skin is a winner in my book.
B Complex (currently on back order until the fall)
Most people think energy when they think of a B complex. The reason why most of us feel energized after upping our B vitamins is because most of us are deficient and that deficiency can lead to us not feeling 100%. So when we do get our levels up it's like the kick start that we didn't even know we needed. Beyond being energizing vitamin B can also help your body to burn fuel more efficiently and help to regulate your blood sugar levels, which can be beneficial to weight maintenance.
The master antioxidant, glutathione is needed by every cell in the body. Unlike many other antioxidants that only reduce free radical damage, glutathione can actually reactive other antioxidants as well. It helps to protect cells from free radical damage thereby promoting the healthy functioning of major organs, boosting the immune system, and helping to detoxify the body. It is a naturally produced protein in the body, however our production of it diminishes as we age making supplementation extremely important to slow down some of aging's more negative side effects.
Alpha lipoic acid is another powerful antioxidant that is found in every cell in the body, helping to turn glucose into energy. It is found in two forms, R-ALA or the naturally occuring form and S-ALA or the synthetic form. R-ALA is the more bioavailable of the two so it makes for a much better supplement. The body produces only a small amount of ALA naturally meaning that the rest must come from the diet or supplementation. In addition to its antioxidant properties, ALA can help the body process other vitamins and minerals better so it is a great addition to any supplement regimen and since it is easily absorbed by the brain it may help protect brain and nerve tissues. It can also maintain healthy glucose levels and healthy insulin resistance making it very beneficial in weight management
