Why Liposomal Vitamin C is the Best Form of Vitamin C
July 2nd, 2020
If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ve heard me say, “it’s not what you eat, it’s what you digest and absorb.” That includes essential nutrients such as vitamin C. Vitamin C is known for its well-studied effects on your body and has been a popular supplement for people around the world, as it’s often the vitamin people take year-round. There’s a good reason for its glowing reputation. Regularly taking vitamin C supplements helps support your immune system, acts as an antioxidant, promotes vascular health, and boosts collagen. However, there are downsides to taking conventional vitamin C orally –– one, in particular, is absorption. My Liposomal Vitamin C solves this problem.
Liposomal Vitamin C: A Better, Faster, Stronger Form of Vitamin C
Many people believe when you take vitamin C, your body automatically absorbs the full dosage — and the more you take, the more benefits you’ll get. However, studies have shown you only absorb 12-14% of vitamin C in an oral supplement form, and taking any dose over 200mg allows for only 50% absorption. Whatever vitamin C your body doesn’t absorb is secreted through your urine. That’s a tough pill to swallow — literally!
Now more than ever, we need all the immune system support and antioxidant benefits of vitamin C we can get! Enter: Liposomal Vitamin C.
How Liposomal Vitamin C Works in Your Body
My Liposomal Vitamin C uses liposomes to make the absorption of vitamin C more efficient. Liposomes contain phospholipids, and if you remember from chemistry class, phospholipids are phosphorus-containing, fat-like substances that make up a cell membrane. The cell membrane is essential for processing nutrients and protecting cells from the outer environment.
If you were to look at liposomal vitamin C under a microscope, it would look like a tiny sphere. On the outermost layer is a fat membrane, and at the core is vitamin C. Remember, vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, which means it can’t penetrate fatty tissue naturally. It needs phospholipids, such as those found in liposomes, to become more bioavailable. That’s the main difference between liposomal vitamin C and conventional oral vitamin C.
When it comes to absorption, conventional vitamin C has to make its way through your digestive process slowly — battling stomach acid and enzymes, before reaching your small intestine, where it then needs a transporter for uptake. At that point, your body can only process up to a certain amount of vitamin C.
On the other hand, liposomal vitamin C has that protective layer of phospholipids, which helps it bypass your digestive process more efficiently. It moves to your small intestine quickly and attaches to the cells in the lining of your small intestine to transfer vitamin C directly to those cells — no transporter necessary. Your cells absorb up to 98% of the vitamin C and funnel it through to your lymphatic system. From there, vitamin C flows through to your bloodstream, and ultimately to cells in your body for use.
Therefore, Liposomal Vitamin C is incredibly beneficial for those of us who want to optimize absorption so we can reap all the benefits of this super essential nutrient.
We Can Benefit from Liposomal Vitamin C Now More than Ever
Liposomal nutrient delivery was initially discovered in the 1960s. It has since been used in supplements and medication to improve their uptake in your body. There are numerous studies and practical applications available that confirm its efficacy, which is why I can confidently recommend liposomal vitamin C to anyone who wants to improve the efficiency of their supplementation efforts.
During times like these, when our stress levels are at an all-time high, and we’re fighting a global health crisis, it’s so crucial for our bodies to be highly efficient at absorbing the vitamins and minerals we ingest. That’s why I decided to create my very own Liposomal Vitamin C supplement — to help you maximize the absorption of vitamin C to better support your immune system.
Liquid Liposomal Vitamin C for Even Better Absorption
At this point, you may be wondering why I chose to create a Liposomal Vitamin C supplement instead of a pill supplement. The answer comes down to absorption. Studies have shown the absorption rate of liquid liposomal vitamin C is 135% that of traditional oral vitamin C. Why? The liquid is encapsulated into nanosized micelles and then enveloped in liposomes, further shielding it against the hostile digestive process. Gradually, the liposomal layer is stripped off, and the vitamin C micelles are released near your gut lining — where nutrients are best absorbed.
Maximizing your uptake of vitamin C facilitates an optimal immune response, supports healthy vascular integrity, circulation, and balanced blood pressure. It increases antioxidant support — to prevent oxidative damage to your cells and tissues. It also has the power to boost your collagen production for better skin, hair, nails, and gut health!
Additionally, because this Liposomal Vitamin C is a liquid formula, you won’t have to worry about taking multiple capsules to reach your daily recommended dose. Not to mention, for all you moms out there who battle with getting your kids to take vitamins, my Liposomal Vitamin C has a citrus-packed flavor you and your family will love. Just take one tablespoon per day to reap all the rewards of vitamin C!
