Superior Vitamin C delivery from Altrient
I’ve long been an advocate of sizable doses of vitamin C. Back a couple of decades (or more) ago, when Dr. Linus Pauling was making headlines as an advocate of mega-dosing vitamin C, I thought he made sense and jumped onto the bandwagon. My days of consuming 5 to 7 grams of C each day are behind me, but I continue to put a couple of grams into myself most days in supplement form.
Altrient provides vitamin C as a liposome encapsulated oral supplement in convenient single-serving packets. But why is Altrient’s product different, and perhaps superior, to other powdered or capsule or tablet vitamin C supplements, you may be asking? Do you wonder if going to Walgreens and buying the inexpensive capsules in their “nutrition” department are just as good?
It would be logical for these questions to be asked. Here’s why Altrient is superior. Their powder contains phospholipids encapsulating the vitamins. This covering is not water soluble, so when you dump the packet into a shaker or glass of water, it doesn’t immediately dissolve. Actually, the small clumps fall to the bottom. So stir it quickly and dump into your mouth!
Each packet of Altrient C contains a gram of vitamin C, and another gram of the essential phospholipids (a proprietary blend). The packets are made from pharmaceutical grade polyethylene plastics, so there should be no leaching of plastic into the product. No aluminum is utilized.
Long a fan of vitamin C, I’m now an advocate of Altrient C.
When I initially published my review of Altrient-C I called it a powder. I don't know why I had that lapse; clearly it's not a powder, it's a liposome encapsulated oral supplement, which I knew as I was using the product! Stupid me. I'm sorry about any confusion.
