Liposomal Vitamin C provides this indispensable nutrient formulated with liposomal technology for optimal absorption and bioavailability.
Each 5 mL serving (approximately 1 teaspoon) of this lemon flavored formula provides 1000 mg vitamin C, as sodium ascorbate, along with 130 mg sodium (as Sodium Ascorbate), which helps facilitate the absorption of vitamin C.
Immune system support immediately comes to mind when we think of vitamin C, but this nutrient has a host of roles in various tissues and systems beyond bolstering immune defenses. Vitamin C is a cofactor for enzymes involved in the synthesis of serotonin and norepinephrine.
As such, adequate vitamin C levels may help individuals maintain a positive mental outlook and mount a healthy response to normal, everyday stress. It is also required for the synthesis
of some of the hormones generated by the adrenal glands, and may be why vitamin C has long been recognized as helping to support adrenal function. In fact, the adrenal glands contain one of the highest concentrations of vitamin C in the body, underscoring that this nutrient is needed for far more than antioxidant effects.*
What are Liposomes?
Liposomes are spheres made of phospholipids—the same primary building blocks of cell membranes. Owing to this structure, liposomes bond easily with cell membranes to deliver their nutrient cargo (in this case, vitamin C).
Liposomes are extremely tiny particles, which allows for fast absorption in the body, starting in the mouth.
Why Liposomal Vitamin C?
At certain doses, vitamin C administered orally can sometimes lead to diarrhea and other forms of GI discomfort.
Intravenous vitamin C is an effective alternative, but this option is inconvenient and impractical for some individuals.
Liposomal Vitamin C is an excellent solution to these obstacles. Liposomal delivery provides a well-tolerated, easily
absorbed and highly bioavailable form of vitamin C without any unpleasant side-effects.
