Altrient Vitamin C Supplement for Skin & Immune System – A Review

How has the first month of 2022 gone for you? Did you stick to your resolutions? Do you feel any healthier and fitter, or is it just the same old, same old? I have been taking one Altrient C sachet every morning, in a small glass of water, which means that I have to wait an hour after taking the sachet before having a cup of coffee (to allow for proper absorption) and I was a bit concerned about having to postpone my first shot of caffeine, but it’s a great new routine. I start the day with a powerful skin and immune system boost, and then wait until after the school run to have my first cup of coffee, meaning I no longer have to dash home for a wee. I don’t even find it hard, and having a bit of self control on the caffeine front has made me realise that I can exercise self control on the alcohol front too. I haven’t gone full dry January, but I have done dry-in-the-week January which has made me notice how much better I feel in the week, and how much better I sleep, and how much less money we spend on booze. So just changing one thing and taking the Altrient C sachet each morning has given me the springboard from which to improve other areas of my diet and lifestyle.

I was a bit apprehensive of how the gel would taste, but you barely notice it. You only use a  small amount of water, there is a very slight orange flavour and that’s it. I have definitely noticed my cheeks feeling plumper and smoother since I started taking the supplement and I have totally avoided catching the cold that another 2 family members went down with this month.

Gwyneth Paltrow is a big fan of a morning shot of vitamin C, but her version is way more expensive than the Altrient C version, and we even have a discount code for readers, so they can try it for themselves at a very reasonable price (especially if it means you spend less money on caffeine and alcohol as a direct result). So if January hasn’t been the most brilliant start to the year for you, have a go at feeling fabulous in February instead, and start the day off with a big boost of vitamin C to get you looking and feeling so much better.

About Altrient C

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for the maintenance of collagen production, the immune system, and to protect against aging. However, it can be extremely difficult to formulate as it’s unstable and difficult to absorb in the gastrointestinal tract.

Altrient C utilises liposomal encapsulation technology which wraps the vitamin C in a protective lipid sphere. Therefore, Altrient C is clinically proven to absorb better and faster into the bloodstream when compared to traditional ascorbic acid powder products. Furthermore, it increases skin elasticity and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.

Not all liposomal products are formulated to the same standard.  Altrient’s gold standard liposomal encapsulation technology makes their supplement a top benchmark in the supplementation industry.

Clinical Studies

As vitamin C is an essential cofactor for collagen synthesis, daily supplementation of the vitamin brightens the skin and reduces wrinkles.

A 16-week clinical study conducted by Princeton Consumer Research Centre has shown the following improvements:

  • After 16 weeks, skin elasticity increased by 61.4%
  • After 16 weeks, fine lines and wrinkles reduces by 13

 

 

Vitamin C is one of the most proven, well-established and powerful immune boosting, anti-oxidant, anti-aging, anti-viral, anti-pathogenic and anti-toxin nutrient known to man. These benefits have been clearly demonstrated over time and yet human beings are amongst only a handful of animal species that cannot produce their own supply of vitamin C so absolutely must source it from food or via supplementation.

We simply can’t function without vitamin C, not just because of its antioxidant properties, but also because of the myriad of mechanisms throughout the body it has to support. It helps to assemble neurotransmitters, lower blood cholesterol, manufacture collagen, increase iron absorption in the gut, metabolise protein and protect tissues and cells from the damaging effects of free radicals. Virtually all cells in the body depend upon it.

We use vitamin C constantly and yet many people’s intake falls far short of what they actually need. Our daily requirement for vitamin C is higher than any other water-soluble vitamin, particularly during times of stress and illness, when levels can drop.

Most people take vitamin C to support their immune systems and rightly so, as researchers have finally conceded that it really does help support our immune system. The remarkable benefits of vitamin C don’t just stop there though. Research into vitamin C is extensive and the positive benefits identified are numerous.

The extensive health benefits of vitamin C are obvious but most people simply don’t get enough in their diet. This is further hindered by its limited bioavailability.

Supplementing vitamin C provides a reasonable alternative; unfortunately it is difficult for the body to absorb large amounts of standard vitamin C all at once because of its inability to withstand the digestive processes in the body.

At best, the body can only absorb up to 200mg of standard vitamin C at a time, the rest is rapidly eliminated from the body through the urine. Much higher doses can cause gastric distress including gas, cramps and diarrhoea.

Until recently intravenous delivery of vitamin C has proven to be the most effective route for absorption, but this method of delivery is both costly and impractical. However, Liposomal vitamin C allows you to take vitamin C orally ensuring it reaches the cells where it is needed.

Liposomal technology is able to increase the absorption of nutrients by capturing the active ingredients inside protective membranes called liposomes. These 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 almost 100% bioavailability.

A substantial number of studies have already documented the versatile advantages of using Liposomes for targeted site-specific delivery and efficient absorption through cells.

Altrient are the world’s first and leading liposomal health & beauty supplements, using a revolutionary new gel delivery system to maximize the absorption of vitamins, nutrients and bioactive compounds.

Every product spends at least 2 years in research and development, adhering to the highest quality and safety standards in the industry and are Gluten Free and Vegan.

Altrient’s patented process uses only the finest ingredients to produce, what we believe to be, the most pure and perfect liposomal supplements in the world.

Altrient’s cutting-edge Liposomal Encapsulation Technology (LET) shields nutrients from stomach acid, securing a safe path to the small intestine where they are absorbed into the blood stream. Thanks to their precise composition Altrient’s liposomes are able to overcome cellular absorption barriers to deliver nutrients directly into the cells, where they are needed most.

LET has been used successfully for many years in the pharmaceutical industry as a means of delivering drugs or other therapeutic agents to specific tissues and Altrient are the first to harness this revolutionary method in health supplements.
