Take a Shot Of This Everyday For Youthful Skin

I'm sure you have already heard a million times over how great Vitamin C is for your immune system? 

But... do you know how great it is for your skin? 

I am a HUGE fan of vitamin C....I would say it is one of my top 3 skincare must haves of all times! 

It's just the most magical antioxidant out there and it has so many benefits for your skin when it comes to anti-aging. I rave about lots of Vitamin C's you can apply topically and some of my favorite Vitamin C serums can be found here (I look for very stable forms so they don't oxidize easily and lose their superpower once on my face). 

But besides putting it on my face every morning to fight off all the free radicals from the environment I also am BIG on ingesting it.

Doctors say taking Vitamin C orally has amazing antioxidant effects on your skin. Taking Vitamin C orally will not only support collagen production, combat free radicals (an anti-aging enemy!) but it will almost act like your extra layer of sunscreen from the inside out. 

Don't just look for a regular ole' vitamin C pill, which by the way, will probably not be absorbed by your body...so um...what's the point, right?? 

You have to try the Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C from LivOn Laboratories. I have been taking this Vitamin C for a few years now and seriously guys... it's one of the best on the market. 

Why you ask?

Well, first, I love how absorbent it is by the body...which is SO important! As I mentioned above, a lot of vitamins we take are not easily absorbed by the body and therefore provide no benefits. The Lypo-Spheric vitamin C uses a "Liposomal Encapsulation Technology." This basically means it is transferred to your bloodstream immediately after taking it and carried over to your cells. Fannnccccy...right? Most vitamin C's on the market, once taken, never make it to your cells and in fact just pass through your body as waste. Literally...what a waste, huh??

One dose of this gooey, orangey little potion contains 1,000mg of vitamin C and 1,000mg of essential phospholipids...

Wait hold up...

I know I know...you're thinking 'what's that?' Here's the low down of what exactly "essential phospholipids" are. If you don't care to read it because your not a science geek like I can be sometimes...(Ha Ha!) just know that your body needs a constant flow of phospholipids in order to keep protecting your cells from damage caused by free radicals and other toxins. The phospholipids you consume from a diet are called essential phospholipids.

You might also notice that it is a high dosage of vitamin c since the recommended daily intake for women is 75mg. Vitamin C is water soluble, meaning it is not stored by the body if you have more than your body needs..so no harm in taking more. In fact, high doses of Vitamin C is VERY beneficial...but that's a whole 'nother blog post so just google it if your curious of the benefits now.  

Anyhow...what's great is that...

LivOn Labortories has done a double-blind home use study with about 45 healthy volunteers with aging skin and looked at how the volunteers benefited from this Vitamin C compared to the placebo control group.                                 

One stand out piece of information from this study...

They found that the volunteers taking this vitamin C increased their skin firmness and reduced fines lines and wrinkles in only 4 weeks! 

Some other benefits were more of what we already know...such as...

Supports a healthy immune system and overall health, helps protect cells from the damaging effects of free radicals, and it even promotes muscle recovery from normal exercise. 

Are you ready to start taking this little shot everyday, like now??

Ok I'm not gonna lie...it doesn't taste good....

But a vodka or tequila or whatever your choice of poison is doesn't taste good either and we take those down with no issues right? Lol!

The way I take it is right when I wake up before eating anything. I put a little water in a shot glass and put the Vitamin C inside and gulp it down! I sometimes even mix it with The Beauty Chef Collagen Inner Beauty Boost. I then wait at least 15 minutes before eating. This Vitamin C is a sticky...gooey substance...it will not dissolve, so don't even try to do it. 

And by the way, I have gotten so used to it that the taste doesn't bother me anymore.

Shop the product below and once you try it let me know your thoughts! xo.
