This non-GMO, soy-free, gluten-free, dairy-free supplement is made in the USA. We use gold standard Quali®-C Vitamin C from Scotland. All ingredients are tested in a third-party cGMP facility to ensure they are of the highest quality. 

Without one essential nutrient, your bones break down, your gums bleed, your hair and teeth fall out, and deprived of it long enough you would die.

Our bodies don’t make it. But you can get it from the foods you eat. The bad news? Only about 18% of it gets absorbed into your blood stream when taken from food, and many Americans are actually deficient. That means they could be at an increased risk of cardiovascular illness, premature aging, an increased stress response, and poor energy.

What is this wonder-nutrient without which we can't live?

Vitamin C.

What is Vitamin C?

For a comprehensive  review of vitamin C and all of its benefits please read our review article here.

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is one of 39 essential nutrients without which our bodies cannot function properly. This essential nutrient cannot be made in our bodies, humans have lost the ability to make Vitamin C unlike other species, so it must be acquired from the foods we eat.

Deprived of vitamin C for too long and you will die of a condition called scurvy. Scurvy was an epidemic amongst 18th century sailors before it was realized that the condition was readily treatable with a few lemons. Today it is rare. However, suboptimal levels of vitamin C are rampant in the modern world, and this can lead to a host of health consequences.

We now know that lack of vitamin C can potentially increases our risk of cardiovascular disease, compromises your immune system and energy production, and some cutting-edge research suggests that high-dose vitamin C may even be useful in oncology.

Why Liposomal Vitamin C ?

Only about 18% of the vitamin C we get in food is available in our blood stream. Normal capsule or powdered supplements often fair even worse than this. The result is that people take more and more vitamin C trying to optimize levels. This can lead to digestive problems like upset stomach and diarrhea.

Liposomal formulations get around these issues by increasing absorption. The vitamin C in this product is protected from the harsh environment of the digestive system inside of liposomal structures— natural microscopic spheres of fat called phospholipids that are already part of our cell membranes and are designed to make this crucial nutrient more available to your body. That means you can optimize your levels more quickly and more effectively without uncomfortable side effects or digestive complaints.

How to Take This Product

Take 1 teaspoon (1000 mg of Vitamin C ) with or without food once or several times a day.

Avoid taking this supplement in the evening or before bed as the choline from the phosphatidylcholine complex can be very activating and cause insomnia.

Vitamin C is essential to life itself. Without it we cannot survive. Human beings unfortunately have lost the ability to manufacture Vitamin C, so it must be obtained from food. Unfortunately our bodies can only absorb maximally about 18% of the vitamin C we ingest. Taking more vitamin C does not increase absorption and can cause stomach irritation and severe diarrhea. 

The Vitamin C in this product is “encapsulated” meaning that it has been naturally “trapped” inside microscopic spheres called liposomes. Due to the liposomal technology employed this product, the absorption of “Liposomal Vitamin C” is markedly higher than the plain Vitamin C equivalent. In addition the gastric irritation and diarrhea are also typically avoided.

Liposomes are microscopic fat-soluble spheres, resembling tiny cells, with Vitamin C intentionally trapped inside the water-soluble center. Liposomes actually resemble our own cells; in fact liposomes are made of the exact same building blocks as our own cell membranes. Phospholipids, like Phosphatidylcholine (PC), are the common building blocks of cell walls as well as our liposomes. Because of this, once Liposomal Vitamin C is ingested orally, the liposomes pass through the stomach intact and then easily attach to the cell membrane of the small intestine cells where absorption of nutrients in food occurs. Once attached, liposomes then “fuse” with our own cells releasing the Vitamin C content to our circulation. This process also serves to replenish our own cell membranes with a fresh supply of Phosphatidylcholine to strengthen cell structure. It is important to point to point out that the liposomes in this product are produced in a natural process using no added pressure, temperature or solvents so as to ensure that the phosphatidylcholine liposomes remain undistorted and non-hydroxylated.

Role of Vitamin C:

Vitamin C is a key co-factor in collagen production (skin, blood vessels, ligaments and bones), adrenalin and carnitine synthesis (energy), and it could directly boost the immune system. Of course it is best know as a potent antioxidant.

Collagen Production: Collagen is the structural protein found in all animal tissue. It holds our muscles to our bones, provides structural support for veins and arteries, and more. Vitamin C is required for collagen synthesis along with the amino acids proline and lysine. Vitamin C is, therefore, required for the maintenance of normal connective tissue as well as for wound healing since synthesis of connective tissue is the first event in wound tissue remodeling. Vitamin C is also required for bone remodeling due to the presence of collagen in the organic matrix of bones.In the absence of enough collagen, individuals could develop thin skin and weaker blood vessels, bones, tendons and ligaments. This may lead, in severe cases, to aneurysms (blood vessel wall thinning), possible stroke, and even the ruptured ligaments and tendons commonly seen in sports injuries.

Energy Production: Vitamin C is required in the metabolism of fat for energy use. It takes part in the synthesis of a molecule called l-carnitine which serves as a shuttle bringing fat(fatty acids) into the mitochondria. This is the first step in our cells' metabolism of fat to provide energy for our cells in the form of ATP. This means vitamin C could have a powerful influence on our energy levels.

Immune Support: Vitamin C may may have a direct effect against infectious agents like bacteria, viruses, and even abnormal dysplastic cells. At very high doses, only available when administered in intravenous (IV) form, it can generate peroxide (H2O2), which may account for this effect. Read More about High Dose IV Vitamin C here.

Adrenal Support: Vitamin C is required for conversion of tyrosine to adrenalin, and the synthesis of the bile. It is important to replete vitamin C level during times of high stress.

Antioxidant Properties Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that helps may protect cell structures like collagen, proteins, and DNA from damage by free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) which are commonly released during normal metabolism but may increase when dealing high stress states, chronic illness and infections. Free radicals are also present in the environment in the form of UV rays (sun damage), cigarette smoke and polluted air.

What is the difference between the softgels and liquid vitamin C?

The liquid liposomal Vitamin C works faster than the softgels because the softgels have to open which delays onset. The liquid also has more phospholipids (PC Complex), 500 mg versus the 350 mg of the softgels. The PC complex has its own very therapeutic and nutritional effect could potentially help in lowering cholesterol, aiding in cardiovascular health, enhancing focus and alertness and balancing the autonomic nervous system. Liquid vitamin C is flavored and has an orange-citrus taste that some people find quite pleasant, but others do not like it or want to avoid because of sensitivity to stevia and fructose. Note, the liquid also has to be refrigerated after opening.

What is the difference between the sunflower and soy versions of liquid vitamin C?

The primary difference is the source of the phospholipids (PC Complex), one is from soy (the Original Formula) and the other is from sunflower. Additionally, the original soy version is thinner, lighter, and sweeter than the sunflower version.

Most people, especially kids, prefer the original soy version, which tastes sort of like a creamsicle. It’s also worth noting that in the original soy-version the lipids are derived from soy, though they test negative for it and are certified non-GMO and DNA soy-free.

Can I take multiple doses? Should I take multiple doses at once or split them up?

It is okay to experiment with dosing which is highly individualized. You can take multiple doses all at once or split them up as needed. Avoid taking over 3000 mg total of PC Complex (about 6 doses).

What is the shelf life?

The shelf life is 24 months after the Manufacturing Date (MFG). Some bottles have the MFG and the Expiration Date (EXP) printed on them. Newer batches only have the Expiration Date printed on the label.

What is the origin of the Vitamin C in this product? What is Quali®-C?

Quali®-C is a brand of Vitamin C made by DSM. We trust the high quality of this Vitamin C as it is made from glucose derived from non-GMO cornfields in Europe. DSM guarantees non-GMO sources and finished product. Here’s a note from their website:

Will I have more energy?

Many people do feel more energy. Others do not feel much of a difference. Those who have higher levels of chronic inflammation, fatigue, or chronic illness are more likely to feel an immediate difference in energy levels than those who are healthier. Vitamin C continues to work regardless of how much "energy" you feel. It has silent effects on metabolism, collagen formation, and free radical neutralization.

Does this Vitamin C have to be refrigerated?

Yes, but only AFTER opening. The bottles are nitrogen sealed which prevents oxidation and the liposomes are stable even if exposed to heat while the bottle is sealed.
