  1. To fight with this corona virus we have to increase our immunity system for our health. And for that we should regularly take vitamin c because vitamin c helps to grow our immunity. But the problem is if you take normal oral vitamin then it will digest with your digestive juice but if you take liposomal vitamin c from canadian vitamin shop then it will work very good.

  2. Vitamin C is the most important supplement for our health. If we don't take vitamin c properly, sometimes it creates many dangerous diseases in our body. So we should take the lypo spheric vitamin c daily. It will protect us from many diseases. Also, it will help us to boost up our immunity system.
