The Golden Ox range of vitamin C supplements are completely natural and ethically sourced. Perfect for the vegan diet, they are gluten and GMO free and each product goes through rigorous testing to deliver uncompromising quality. Liposomal technology is harnessed to deliver a drastically higher absorption rate making it more efficient and easier for your body to process.
So how does it do it? Liposomes!
The key is in the liposomal technology. Phospholipids in the capsule, which are similar to the cell wells in construction, can form liposomes in the body. As a result, the coating of the vitamin C molecules then helps to transport the active ingredients through the harsh environment of the stomach and deliver it into the intestines where it can be absorbed more easily by slipping through the cell walls.
Why do I need Vitamin C anyway?
It could be good for you heart

Vitamin C has been shown to have a protective affect against thinking and memory diseases such as dementia thanks to its powerful antioxidant properties. Further study to confirm link is needed.
It may help your skin
Vitamin C is said to stimulate the production of collagen in your skin. By supporting collagen synthesis it could also help structures in your body such as blood vessels and ligaments too.
It assists iron absorption
If your low on iron in your blood, perhaps with a condition such as anaemia, taking vitamin C alongside iron supplements can help the iron be absorbed, therefore making them more effective.
So how much should you take?
It’s important to speak to a doctor when starting to take a new supplement so they can advise on any interactions or reasons you should exercise caution. Each supplement will state the recommended daily dose and it’s important to follow this, if your doctor has given you the green light to take it.
