Getting the Most Out of Vitamin C

Vitamin E delivers more potential in SciMar NuPa Daily

Vitamin E is a powerful fat-soluble antioxidant that helps support the maintenance of good health. It also protects our cells against the oxidative damage caused by free radicals, making Vitamin E an important ingredient in SciMar NuPa Daily: a groundbreaking supplement that supports metabolic health.

“On its own, Vitamin E has a track record of being successful in treating some forms of liver disease,” says Dr. Wayne Lautt, Founder and Chief Scientific Officer of SciMar. “But combined with Vitamin C and SAMe, it offers protection throughout the body.”

Protecting the liver is important. It is the only organ that produces hepatalin*—an important hormone that helps your body determine whether nutrient energy is stored in fat or muscle. This process, known as nutrient partitioning, is something your body either does well or does poorly. And nutrient partitioning is where the word “NuPa” comes from!

When the body loses its ability to produce hepatalin, either though damage to the metabolism caused by unhealthy lifestyles or from natural aging, AMISS will develop. This syndrome (the absence of meal-induced insulin sensitization syndrome) is a progression of pathologies—like cardiac dysfunction and insulin resistance, for example—that can lead to type 2 diabetes and all of its worst consequences.

But this progression toward poor nutrient partitioning can be stopped in its tracks.

SciMar NuPa Daily is the first nutraceutical intervention of its kind that helps you do battle against AMISS by protecting your production of hepatalin. Its three primary ingredients (Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and SAMe) work together to protect the liver’s production of hepatalin by protecting our cells at every level.

The Science

The cycle of protection begins with Vitamin C: the liquid-soluble ingredient in SciMar NuPa Daily.

As Dr. Lautt explains, “Vitamin C is often the first compound to be hit by a free radical. When this happens, it causes Vitamin C to donate a hydrogen atom to that free radical. As a result, that free radical is stopped from oxidizing anything else.”

This triggers a chain reaction. With Vitamin C now missing its hydrogen atom, the molecule becomes oxidized. This activates Vitamin E.

Vitamin E—the fat-soluble antioxidant—in SciMar NuPa Daily protects the cell membranes and fatty parts of the cell from the damage caused by free radicals: unstable atoms that are responsible for the natural aging and poorly functioning metabolisms that impact hepatalin production.

With Vitamin C now oxidized, Vitamin E responds by donating its hydrogen atom to Vitamin C. As a result, Vitamin C becomes stabilized, but Vitamin E is left oxidized in the process.

This is when the third ingredient in SciMar NuPa Daily—SAMe—enters the picture.

“To get Vitamin E back to normal, glutathione plays a major role in making this possible. And that's what SAMe does: it protects the formation of glutathione," says Dr. Lautt.

“When we start talking about synergy, this is what we mean. Not only are these three ingredients protecting different parts of the cell—to cover the whole cell— they're also able to interact with each other. For hepatalin health, all three components are required.”
