Why You Should Drink Your Vitamin C
Vitamin C is our favorite vitamin, I mean, is it any surprise!
In the beauty world, it’s known as the “beauty vitamin” thanks to its fantastic skin benefits from boosting collagen production, reducing inflammation and breakouts, to promoting an unrivaled healthy glow. There’s so much more to it than just its beautifying properties though!
Vitamin C is one vitamin we recommend taking every day to help reduce inflammation in your body, as well as protect your insides from the harmful effects of free radicals. Vitamin C will also help to boost your immune system so you won’t need those tissues when they’re passed around at the office during the next flu season.
Of course what you’re probably now wondering is how to take vitamin C to ensure your body is getting all it needs. You may think you can grab the first supplement bottle you see at your local drugstore, but you might be surprised to learn that drinking vitamin C is actually better for absorption.

Drinking Our Vitamin C Powders Versus Taking a Pill
It may seem easy to pop a pill and forget about it, but what’s the point if you’re not getting the value you paid for? Often the Vitamin C forms found in supplements are not easily absorbed and they are often quite large pills, something many people struggle with.
Our powders, on the other hand, are mixed into water or any drink of your choice, and because you are taking your vitamin C in a liquid form, it is easily able to quickly enter your bloodstream and less will be excreted than if you had taken a pill. These powders are easy to take and can be added to plain water, your favorite smoothie or any other drink for a vitamin boost!
Our vitamin C sachets also contain other excellent vitamins to aid in absorption, along with a small amount of sugar to provide you with the perfect balance of natural electrolytes. You’ll be buzzing with energy all day long!
Other Tips To Maximize Absorption
Of course, there are a few other things to take into consideration when taking your vitamin C. Certain things can actually interfere with absorption, caffeine, and nicotine being two of the biggest culprits. We recommend cutting out smoking entirely, but if just the thought of skipping your morning cup of joe gives you the jitters, we urge you to simply cut back on your caffeine intake.
To maximize the absorption of non-heme iron (the kind from plant sources) we highly recommend pairing your plants with some vitamin C, as Vitamin C enhances the absorption of iron. Next time you’re about to dive into a yummy spinach salad, don’t forget to drizzle some lime or lemon juice over it first.
We hope this article makes choosing our Vitamin C sachets an easy choice! They’re available in a range of delicious flavors, so if you aren’t sure what drink to add them to, simply choose your favorite flavor and add to some water with lots of ice of course! Happy sipping!
