Why these 3 nutrients are essential for your health

The right mix of nutrients helps our bodies perform at their best and stay healthy and energised. Here are three key nutrients to include in your diet.

We’re often told to “eat the rainbow” of different coloured fruits and vegetables to ensure we nourish our bodies with a wide variety of nutrients.1

While this is a good rule of thumb for healthy eating, there are times when our bodies may require support from specific nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin D or iron.

Reasons to include these 3 important nutrients in your diet

#1: Vitamin C

This vitamin is found in many fruits and vegies, including oranges, grapefruit, lemon, kiwifruit, broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage.2

Vitamin C in specific quantities can support immune system health, help decrease the severity of symptoms of common colds and flu, reduce free radicals formed in the body and support collagen formation.

#2: Vitamin D

Vitamin D is usually produced in the body when we’re exposed to sunlight or may be found in foods such as oily fish, eggs and mushrooms.3

Vitamin D in specific quantities has benefits that include helping calcium absorption and aiding healthy bone development.

A diet deficient in calcium can lead to osteoporosis in later life.

Vitamin D in specific quantities can also enhance immune system function, promote healthy muscle function, support nervous system function and help promote general health and wellbeing.

#3: Iron

Foods containing the mineral iron include meat, poultry, salmon, sardines, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, lentils, chickpeas, spinach and broccoli.4

Iron in specific quantities has benefits that include promoting energy levels and relieving fatigue and feelings of weakness.

Nutrient support made simple

If you’re looking for nutritional support, Lipo-Sachets are a next-generation liposomal range using patented Liposhell technology.

This technology ensures the active ingredient is effectively transported to locations in the body where it is required and provides superior absorption.

Lipo-Sachets are available using Liposhell technology in Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Ferro (iron).

Vitamin C Lipo-Sachets deliver up to 80 per cent higher absorption than standard vitamin C.5

They maintain collagen formation, reduce free radicals formed in the body, help connective tissue formation, maintain immune system health, help reduce the severity of symptoms of common colds and flu and support absorption of dietary vitamin C.

Vitamin D Lipo-Sachets have a four times higher absorption rate than regular vitamin D3 capsules.6

They help enhance general health and wellbeing, assist healthy bone building, help improve immune system function, help promote healthy muscle function, support nervous system function and support healthy foetal development.

Ferro Lipo-Sachets offer superior iron absorption with reduced risk of gastric upsets, such as constipation.7

They promote energy levels, relieve weariness and support iron levels in the body.

Taking Lipo-Sachets is easy.

Simply consume the contents straight from the sachet or add the contents into a little bit of cold water, juice or smoothie and drink in one gulp.
