Why is vitamin C important for skin?
Nadine explains the importance of vitamin C, referring to it as a ‘health Pac Man’ which goes through our system and helps to get rid of ‘baddies’. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect the skin from environmental damage and UV damage. Additionally, vitamin C can help to even out skin tone and fade dark spots, resulting in a more radiant complexion.
One of vitamin C’s most well known benefits is that it is essential for collagen production, a vital protein that helps keep our skin firm and youthful. Collagen production naturally declines with age, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. Vitamin C plays a critical role in the production of collagen by helping to convert the amino acid proline into collagen.
Why topical and oral vitamin C?
Nadine explains that it is hard to get enough vitamin C in our diet to see the benefits mentioned above in our skin. Therefore, many dermatologists recommend that we should be applying it on top, and from within. She explains that although it is rare in the Western world to be deficient in vitamin C, dermatologists believe that you can’t get enough to get in to your skin, which is where oral vitamin C can help.
Once vitamin C enters our system, it tends to work its way outward, and Nadine explains that as our skin tends to be the last step in that outward process, it’s important to ensure we have high enough levels of vitamin C to achieve glowing skin.
What form of vitamin C is best?
The form of supplemental vitamin C you choose is very important, as vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin and in some forms, its absorption can be on the lower end of the scale and it ends up being flushed out of our systems. Liposomal vitamin C however, is an extremely effective form, whereby maximised absorption is achieved. Altrient C’s tiny liposomal bubbles consist of bi-layers of phospholipid molecules (similar to your own body’s cell membranes), that protect the contents and manage to by-pass the digestive juices to deliver the vitamin C directly to the cells. This unique method of delivery protects the vitamin C from oxidation and degradation avoiding gastro-intestinal distress and ensures maximised absorption.Find out more on how Altrient works here.
