Liposomal Vitamin C, superstar anti-oxidant, provides this indispensable nutrient, formulated with liposomal technology for best absorption and bioavailability. Each serving of this lemon flavored formula provides 1000 mg of vitamin C. This easy delivery system is great for kids, for the elderly or for those who can’t swallow capsules or have pill fatigue. There are SO many benefits: quick delivery through blood vessels in the mouth and won’t upset the stomach or cause loose stools.
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, playing a role in hormonal balance and metabolism.
Vitamin C is required for healthy collagen synthesis. Collagen is a primary structural protein in connective tissues, such as bones, tendons and ligaments, as well as in hair, skin, and nails. Blood vessels are also made largely of collagen, which accounts for the crucial role of vitamin C in cardiovascular health, and explains why occasional easy bruising and bleeding (think about nose bleeds and bleeding gums) are signs that vitamin C levels are less than optimal.
Finally, vitamin C’s antioxidant function is a hallmark of this nutrient. Vitamin C is a potent neutralizer of free radicals and helps to recycle other antioxidants, including vitamin E and glutathione. It is important to make sure the body has sufficient antioxidant nutrients in order to mount a proper defense against our everyday encounters with free radicals. A major source of free radical exposure in the summertime is the sun and chlorinated water. Consider taking a hit of Liposomal C before you head to the beach or the pool! 500-1000 mg worth would be wise.
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.
