Liposomes are the Best Delivery System for Vitamin C.

Vitamin C is one of the most widely recognized and used anti-oxidants in the world. This anti-oxidant plays a critical role in helping the immune system, joints and arteries heal and function properly. Liposomal vitamin C is a technological breakthrough in nutrient assimilation and offers incredible health benefits.

What are Liposomes:
Liposomes are tiny “nano-size” fat soluble vehicles for carrying nutrients to the body’s cells. Dr Alec Banham, a hematologist at the Babraham Institute in Cambridge, UK discovered the liposomal technology. “Lipo” is Greek for fat while “soma” means body. These are a double layer of fatty materials which is similar to the phospholipid bilayer of the cell membranes in the body. Liposomal vitamin C is packaged like a bodily cell so it passes through the digestive barrier and delivers the nutrient directly to the bloodstream. This has a much higher absorption rate with over 90% of the cells being bathed in vitamin C. This is even vastly superior to IV vitamin C which is an expensive but effective procedure that is done quite often in hospitals and alternative health clinics.

Much of our biological chemistry is based around both water and fat solubility. Just as water and oil do not mix, there are challenges involved with bringing a water soluble nutrient into a fat soluble matrix such as cell membranes. This incompatibility leads to lower rates of nutrient uptake and utilization within the cells.

Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin that doesn’t interact particularly efficiently with cell membrane walls. As cell walls are made up of fatty acids, estimates are that water soluble oral vitamin C intake has an approximate absorption rate of 20% into the bloodstream with the other 80% accumulating in the colon. Higher vitamin C dosage is also associated with unpleasant digestive complaints such as cramping and diarrhoea because it draws water into the colon.

As the Liposomal vitamin C is packaged in a similar way to our body’s cells, it passes through the digestive barrier and delivers the nutrient directly into the bloodstream and then into our body’s cells. This results in a much higher absorption rate with over 90% of the liposomal C bathing the body’s cells in vitamin C. The liposomal vitamin C transport system has distinct advantages over Intravenous vitamin C which is an expensive but effective procedure that is done in some hospitals and alternative health clinics.

Nanometre particle size of the LIPO C is only 72 Nm. The particle size of liposomes in LIPO C is 30% smaller than the size of the liposomal C particles of next best competing product (100Nm). Not only is LIPO C is 40% lower in cost, as a bonus, it tastes better as well.

Each 200ml bottle contains over 60 serves of Liposomal Vitamin C

Serving size: ½ teaspoon (1000 mg vitamin C). The Vitamin C concentration of LIPO C is 330mg Ascorbic Acid per ml.
