|While Vitamin C has been well known for a long time, some of it’s very impressive benefits can only be found in very large doses. Normally these levels cannot be achieved orally, partly due to low bio-availability and gastrointestinal limits. Given the recommended daily allowance (RDA) in most countries is ridiculously low, most people think of Vitamin C as just something to take when the first sniffles of a cold appear.
Vitamin C is vital to so many functions within our bodies and in many critical healing processes - considering the average diet available to us, most of us are only just at above the levels that would result in a case of scurvy - that to get adequate levels, very special attention needs to be paid to diet.
For therapeutic levels for restoration of heath, diet alone is not enough. Until recently, the only way to ensure our bodies have enough Vitamin C was via intravenous injection (IV). This isn’t easy to find, as the majority of doctors don’t want to stick their neck out and do anything different than their peers.
Liposomal Vitamin C overcomes all of the above limitations, and allows almost complete absorption in an easy to take liquid form that also tastes quite good. There’s more to it than that though, which we’ll get to in a moment.
Linus Pauling, a Nobel Prize Winning Vitamin C research scientist, was not the only researcher hard at work in determining the efficacy of Vitamin C Therapy. In the 1960’s Dr. Klenner, was using IV Vitamin C for over 30 different conditions. His Maxim being "get large doses of vitamin C in all pathological conditions while the physician ponders the diagnosis.", In other words, whilst trying to find out the cause of a condition, use Vitamin C in the meantime
What Is The Limitation of Oral Consumption of Vitamin C?
Normally, we take our nutritional supplements in pills and capsules. Depending on the substance in question, this is not always the most efficient way of administering a supplement, although it could be considered the most convenient and inexpensive.
Orally administered nutrients have to be digested by the stomach flora and make it through first pass of the liver before entering the bloodstream. It has been known in cases where people who have compromised digestion, such pills can be found completely undigested, sitting in the bottom of septic tanks. Even in individuals with a very healthy digestive system will not be able to completely absorb many kinds of nutrients.
In the case of Vitamin C, the figure is generally considered to be around 19%, with a bowel tolerance of somewhere in the region of 5-8 grams - although the first 1milligram will be absorbed much better than the 1000th milligram, as effectiveness falls away.
If you consider that RDA in many countries is just 65 milligrams, that is a lot of bottles of pills, and what initially looks like an inexpensive product turns out to be extremely inefficient and cumbersome. Linus Pauling, as mentioned above, would take 18 milligrams per day, which had to be staggered throughout the day because of digestive limits. It is possible to buy pills in 500 milligrams or even 1 gram sizes, but they’re made with a lot of binders to hold them together, and are the size of horse pills.
So what is a Liposome, and how does it benefit absorbtion?
A Liposome is a tiny sphere, usually derived from Soy lecithin (although we’re proud to say that ours is Non GMO Sunflower derived). They are so tiny, they are measured in nanometers. Our product has a very high degree of uniformity in size, so that they can actually pass straight through the intestinal wall where they can enter the bloodstream. What this translates to is a very high bio-availability (around 98%)
A quality Liposomal formula will almost completely eliminate all absorption and bowel tolerance levels. A single daily dose (1000mg) would be the equivalent of 12 oranges *if* the oranges were 100% bioavailable, which isn’t possible.
Another feature of a Liposome is that it not only gets its contents into serum blood, but can actually get it directly into the cells where it’s needed. According to Dr Thomas Levy, at the 35th annual cancer institute, means it could be as much as 8-10 times more effective. If you consider all those factors together, the amount of ‘active’ vitamin C compared to oral, is probably in the region of …. get this … is up to 50 times more effective than a regular Vitamin C product.
But there’s more…
Aside from all we’ve discussed about Vitamin C, there’s a small amount of Glutathione in our product as well. Glutathione is a very special thing in itself, and really warrants a liposomal product of its own (due to its even lower bioavailability of just 3%), but before smirking at what a paltry amount is contained in the product, you should understand that its purpose in this product is to recycle the vitamin C. There is a cascade effect between several supplements - Vitamin E, NAC and R-ALA and more - which will repair each other and make them useful again. The body is able to make some Glutathione provided the correct pre-cursors are there, but not to therapeutic doses that we would like to see. We’ll save that for another topic however.
A few other things to consider and some hypothetical “What if’s?”
Liposomal C will peak in the blood much quicker, and has a half-life or roughly double that of standard Vitamin C, meaning it sticks around a lot longer. There is a link at the bottom of this article which refers to some studies using IV Vitamin C for successful tumor reduction. The patients did not visit the clinic every day, but they did establish the baseline values of vitamin C required to be of therapeutic value in reduction of tumors.
If I were to discover I had a condition of this sort, would I consider drinking a bottle a day of Liposomal Vitamin C & Glutathione rather than undertake chemotherapy, radiation or surgery? Well I’m not a medical doctor, and the FDA precludes us from making any claims, but certainly other therapies would be on my research list (Budwig diet, Cesium Chloride, total elimination of sugar, super clean nutritious diet, and a whole host of other things).
With the use of Liposomal Vitamin C, we can achieve therapeutic levels in a very short period of time. It is also generally regarded as safe, as there is no established dose of Vitamin C at which a person could kill themselves (2005, Hayashi T 12 157).
Over 10,000 subjects were examined in the relation of Vitamin C to kidney stones. NO evidence was found to indicate that high Vitamin C levels increased the prevalence of kidney stones. What was discovered, was that it had the opposite effect. The higher the blood levels of Vitamin C, the lower the incidence of stone formation. (1999 Simon 159 619).
Even in Diabetes research, higher plasma levels of Vitamin C were inversely associated with the development of the disease (2000 Sargeant 23 726).
A very notable quote:
In 2005, claimed by Dr Levy, Lyme Disease was cured in 72-hours: “A woman suffering with severe and debilitating Lyme disease had been seen by many doctors and had not responded to several courses of antibiotics. Her health was rapidly failing and her husband called Dr. Levy. The woman was immediately infused with 100 grams of Vitamin C, and within just two hours of treatment, her husband reported that she looked 50 to 60 percent better. Over the next two days she received five more 50 gram infusions of Vitamin C, and by hour 72 she was completely well. That was nearly two years ago. She has since suffered no relapses, nor is there any indication of a chronic infection”.
Now of course we cannot assume that IV Vitamin C and Liposomal Vitamin C are interchangeable. It is a notable point, however, that it is the same doctor discussing these studies who is an advocate of Liposomal C and feels that it could be much more potent on a gram for gram basis due to its exceptional ability to go intra-cellular rather than just into blood serum. Food for thought….
Not All Liposomal Vitamin C Is The Same
A close examination of labels will illustrate this point. You will see that the product is built around price-point, not quality-point. Some manufacturers use alcohol as a preservative, and products in sachets are not stable once opened.
Other makers of this product try to get around those factors by using the GelCaps technology. One of the problems with that is the fact that you would have to consume large amounts of these GelCaps, and it turns out to be an inefficient method of delivery. With GelCaps technology, the ratio of Liposomal material to active ingredient (and also with some liquid formulations) is very high, and therefore less effective on a ‘per milliliter’ basis.
This is where you see the difference. In our product, only about 30% is the Liposome, and the rest is active ingredient. This is an indication of the efficiency of encapsulation. Our Liposamal Vitamin C also has a great taste, so there is no particular need to add it to juice or other beverages.
