Why use Liposomal Vitamin C?

Looking at the figures it appears that standard Vitamin C products only manage to deliver up to 19% of their Vitamin C directly into the blood stream, the remainder sits in the gastrointestinal tract and attracts water and loosens the bowels. This is the reason why taking a large quantity of a standard vitamin C product can give you toilet trouble. Liposomal Vitamin C on the other hand can deliver up to 93% (possibly higher) directly into the blood stream without the toilet trouble.

• Standard 1,000 mg vitamin C capsule/tablet
Absorption rate 19% = 190 mg into blood stream

• Standard 1,000 mg of liposomal vitamin C
Absorption rate 93% = 930 mg into blood stream

It is now possible to get large quantities of Vitamin C into the blood stream without having to use intravenous (IV) infusion.
Structure of a Liposome
What are Liposomes and why are they so important?

Liposomes are tiny spheres (often termed nano-spheres) which can be several layers deep – much like an onion skin – and the main purpose of which is to encapsulate something to make it more bioavailable to the body. Due to the microscopic nature of Liposomes, they can go straight through to the wall of the gut, and not be neutralized or even eliminated during the first pass of the liver. The benefits to this are self-evident. Absorption by the body of the ‘cargo’ encapsulated by the Liposomes is far greater. The reasons to consume Liposomes are manifold. It depends on the ‘cargo’ of the Liposome, and the condition you are wishing to treat. In the case of Vitamin C, because Vitamin C is a water soluble substance, it will attract water and be eliminated out of the body without being absorbed very effectively. Most references cite bioavailability at just 19% for ‘standard’ Vitamin C consumption and effectiveness in the body. This is a number that has been picked up on the internet and widely copied. The truth is more like the first milligram of ‘standard’ Vitamin C will be very effectively absorbed, but the more milligrams consumed will bring you closer to bowel tolerance which is where you start running to the bathroom, as almost none of the ‘standard’ Vitamin C is being absorbed.

What is glutathione?

Glutathione is many things, but primarily it is probably the most important and potent anti-oxidant because it is present in almost every cell of your body. It is a small protein composed of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine. It aids in free-radical scavenging, immune boosting and detoxification of the body. It is required to maintain the normal function of the immune system. The body can produce Glutathione, but only in very limited quantities and only with the right ingredients present in the body. This makes deficiency a very common issue due to the modern diet. Glutathione assists the body to recycle Vitamin C and therefore makes our Liposomal Vitamin C even more effective. Given that Glutathione is not very bioavailable naturally (perhaps around 3%) Liposomal versions are extremely effective in increasing not only the presence of Glutathione, but also the amount of time Vitamin C can remain active in the body. Even a small amount of Glutathione in relation to the amount of Vitamin C can make a very big difference in the effect of not only the Glutathione present, but it’s effectiveness in recycling Vitamin C.

Vitamin C: The missing link in bone health

When it comes to building healthy, strong bones, calcium and vitamin D seem to be the star nutrients. You may have also heard about the role of magnesium, vitamin D and vitamin K2 in bone health. But there is a very good chance that you are unfamiliar with how vitamin C may be an equally significant nutrient in this context.
