THIS IS WHAT YOU PAID FOR

ELLE (Canada) - - Body -

When you take a 1,000-mil­ligram dose of vi­ta­min C, less than half of it is ab­sorbed by the body, ac­cord­ing to a study pub­lished in Pro­ceed­ings of the Na­tional Academy of Sciences. Lypo-Spheric Vi­ta­min C ($52.95 for 30 sa­chets, at LivOnLabs.com) im­proves that num­ber, thanks to an en­cap­su­la­tion tech­nol­ogy that wraps the wa­ter-sol­u­ble an­tiox­i­dant in li­po­somes, a type of phos­pho­lipid (the stuff our cell mem­branes are made of). It’s ef­fec­tive, but fair warn­ing­: It doesn’t taste pleas­ant. Your best bet: Drop the gel into a shot-glass-size amount of OJ and shoot it back like an oys­ter.
