Lipo Naturals + Vitamin A = Youthful Skin

Ever see an interview on TV with someone touting a raw food diet? Someone that has been a devout proponent for many years. Typically, they look youthful for their age and have glowing skin. Although some see many benefits, a raw food diet may not be for everyone. It’s difficult to implement and stick to depending on your tastes in food and lifestyle. The good news is there's some solid science that explains why raw food diets result in a youthful look and it has to do with a melting point and oxidation.

There are two major vitamins used by our bodies in renewing skin, vitamin C and vitamin A. Vitamin C is key in your body's production of collagen, a building block of skin among other vital parts. Vitamin A is used in cell differentiation when it comes time to build the layers of the dermis (skin) and integrate that available collagen.

There are issues with both of these vitamins when taken orally with cooked meals. The issue with vitamin A is that it has a low melting point - it breaks down at around 135 °F. If you’ve cooked, you realize that this temperature is surpassed every time in the kitchen or ordering at your favorite restaurant. The issue with vitamin C when cooking, L-Ascorbic Acid is the active form, is that it’s a powerful antioxidant. Because of this, it combines quickly with available oxygen molecules in food & water during preparation. That vitamin C is losing potency before it ever reaches your mouth, let alone into your blood and organs/skin where it can be used.

Raw foodies by-pass some of these limitations by eating fruits and vegetables to get both vitamins A and C before they have a chance to melt or oxidize. Their skin usually shows this. But you can get the same skin benefits without the raw food diet, actually, much more noticeable benefits thanks to an invention called Liposomal Vitamin C. Raw food diets give you lots of vitamin C, but there is limit to the amount of vitamin C that can be absorbed by your body through digestion of food or regular vitamin C supplements. Most all mammals produce L-Ascorbic Acid (pure vitamin C) in their livers, they do not need to eat to get this vitamin. Humans produce zero vitamin C, and must eat to get enough to keep us from getting sick (scurvy), but this doesn’t approach the levels other mammals have in their blood naturally. That is, until Liposomal vitamin C was available. Now you can get blood levels higher than possible with food or regular vitamin C supplements. And it exactly this newly bioavailable liposomal vitamin C, when combined with a small amount of vitamin A (really, just half a carrot), that promotes rejuvenated skin. Wrinkles are reduced, skin glows, overall you look much younger... and you’re still eating that eggplant parmesan that you love.

So try it and see the results in a couple of months. Lipo Naturals Liposomal Vitamin C has no artificial preservatives, is quality tested to be really encapsulated, and uses the pure L-Ascorbic Acid molecule for the most potent results. And don’t forget to grab a bag of organic baby carrots to munch on once and a while when taking your Liposomal C. Let us know how this works for you!
