Dr Mercola's Liposomal Vitamin C:
Vitamin C is regarded as the "grandfather" of the traditional antioxidants we know of.
Vitamin C contributes to...
Vitamin C 1,000 mg (as Ascorbic Acid), Sunflower Lecithin, Medium Chain Triglycerides, Capsule (Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose), Beeswax, Paprika Extract, Sunflower Oil.
Adults, as a dietary supplement take two (2) capsules daily with food and water, or as directed by your healthcare professional.

You might have heard of a new technology called liposomal technology that has been used to increase absorption of nutrients. This occurs naturally in krill oil. The omega-3 fats are bound to phospholipids that radically increase absorption relative to fish oil.
Similarly, we can now mimic that process in the gut to improve nutrient absorption.
With liposomal technology, the phospholipids in the capsule can form liposomes in the stomach. Studies show the movement of water is sufficient to create some liposomes. Stresses are high in the stomach, with stomach fluids in near constant motion, which could create an even greater amount of liposomes. Since liposomes can help the nutrient gain entry across your gut membrane to its target organs and cells, more liposomes could lead to an increased rate of absorption.
The research is now quite clear that one of the best and most practical ways to supplement your diet with oral vitamin C is with a liposomal form of vitamin C.
Liposomal absorption is quite different from intestinal absorption.
With intestinal absorption:
But with liposomal technology:
With a portion of the vitamin C becoming encapsulated by liposomes formed in the gut, these molecules are more easily able to slip through the cell walls, increasing absorption.
Plus, this liposomal technology helps reduce the potential gastrointestinal distress that can accompany high doses of traditional oral vitamin C. And scientific research suggests that liposomal vitamin C may increase bioavailability over what was previously thought possible.
