Liposomal Vitamin C Softgels contain1000 mg of Vitamin C per serving as Ascorbic Acid (3 softgels = one serving, 90 softgels providing 30 servings) . This product has no taste, is free of sweeteners and requires no refrigeration. It is the softgel equivalent of our best selling Liposomal Vitamin C Liquid. Great for travel or for daily use away from home.
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. For this reason Liposomal Vitamin C has a large advantage over regular Vitamin C.
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 small intestine cells' membrane where absorption of nutrients in food occurs. Once attached, liposomes then “fuse” with our own cells releasing the Vitamin C content to our circulation.
The Phosphatidylcholine Complex (PC) making up the liposomes themselves also serves to replenish our own cell membranes with a fresh supply of phospholipids (the building blocks of all cell membranes) to strengthen cell structure. Just as importantly, mitochondria which are the energy producing organelles in each cell, have their own inner and outer membranes where the final steps of ATP (energy production) occurs. PC is thus equally useful in restoring mitochondrial function.
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.
Vitamin C is a key factor in collagen production (skin, blood vessels, ligaments and bones), adrenalin and carnitine synthesis (energy), it directly boosts the immune system, and it has a potent antioxidant function.
