Benefits

Dr Mercola's Liposomal Vitamin C:

  • Incorporates phospholipids to help protect the vitamin C and aid in the formation of liposomes in the stomach.
  • Liposomes form in the body, surrounding some of the vitamin C molecules, for higher-bioavailability potential and protection against occasional intestinal discomfort.
  • Provides higher bioavailability than traditional oral vitamin C.
  • Includes a sunflower lecithin emulsifier, thereby totally avoiding a soy-based one.
  • Delivers vitamin C in a high-quality, tightly-sealed Licaps capsule that is superior to other oral delivery systems in terms of leakage protection.
  • Comes from a world-leading quality manufacturer with over a century of experience and innovative delivery technologies.
  • Provides a more practical and effective way to complement your diet with vitamin C than traditional oral C.

Vitamin C is regarded as the "grandfather" of the traditional antioxidants we know of.

Vitamin C contributes to...

  • maintain the normal function of the immune system during and after intense physical exercise.
  • normal collagen formation for the normal function of blood vessels, bones. cartilage, gums, skin and teeth.
  • normal energy-yielding metabolism.
  • normal functioning of the nervous system.
  • normal psychological function.
  • the normal function of the immune system.
  • the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
  • the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
  • the regeneration of the reduced form of vitamin E.
  • increased iron absorption.


Suggested Use

Adults, as a dietary supplement take two (2) capsules daily with food and water, or as directed by your healthcare professional.

KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.



Additional Info


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.

Advantages of Liposomal Absorption

Liposomal absorption is quite different from intestinal absorption.

With intestinal absorption:

  • In order for your food and nutrients to be used, they first have to be broken down by your digestive system
  • Once they are broken down to smaller fragments, your body can then absorb them
  • Finally, these nutrients enter your bloodstream and your body is able to utilise them.

But with liposomal technology:

  • The tiny particles of the phospholipid-coated nutrient create molecules of vitamin C coated with a substance similar to the cell walls themselves.
  • The coated vitamin C molecules can more readily be absorbed.

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.
