Due to modern farming methods the amount of vitamins and minerals in food has significantly decreased.

Vitamins and minerals or in a word – micronutrients – do not contain calories. They act as catalysts, i.e. they initiate many biochemical reactions in the body.

Is natural vitamin C better than synthetic vitamin C?

Vitamin C is not found in isolated form in fruits and vegetables as it is always part of a complex.
The vitamin C derived from the extract of acerola cherries, which is included in LYL immunUP®, is also obtained from a complex consisting of various biologically active substances – bioflavonoids, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.
These substances work in synergy in the body and do not disrupt the balance of other nutrients such as lowered levels of iron and copper, which can, however, be caused by synthetic vitamin C or a mega-dose of the vitamin.
Natural vitamin C is nontoxic, it is significantly less acidic and less of it is expelled by the body.
Vitamin C is also crucial for the proper absorption of another ingredient in LYL immunUP® - iron.
Studies have also found a positive correlation vitamin C has with another LYL immunUP® ingredient – Echinacea.
Scientists have concluded that people taking vitamin C together with Echinacea got a cough 86% less than the placebo group.
