LIPOSOMAL VITAMIN C
Vitamin C plays an important role in
the health and function of the immune cells. White blood cells depend upon
vitamin C in order to survive and withstand the attack of pathogens and free
Vitamin C also reduces inflammatory conditions associated with colds,
fevers, allergies and the flu.
Vitamin C also plays an important
role in the production of collagen which is the major constituent in ligaments,
bones, discs, tendons and skin. High dose vitamin C has been shown to improve
the healing process of burns, cuts, wounds, sprains/strains and broken bones.
C has powerful antioxidant properties that protect against oxidative stress
against the cell. Vitamin C helps to
protect the arterial walls throughout the body. The blood vessels that are most
important and under the most stress are the coronary arteries that feed the
heart muscles. It also prevents the oxidation of cholesterol in the
Vitamin C also improves lung
function and overall oxygenation within the body. Asthmatics tend to have a
higher need for vitamin C and doses of 2,000 mg per day lessen the body’s
production of histamine and lung associated inflammation. Vitamin C also
improves blood sugar stability which is particularly important for individuals
with heart disease and diabetes.
Liposomal vitamin C improves absorption rate. Liposomes are tiny “nano-size” fat soluble vehicles for
carrying nutrients to the body’s cell. Liposomal vitamin C is packaged like a
bodily cell so it passes through the digestive barrier and delivers the
nutrient directly to the bloodstream. This has a much higher absorption rate
with over 90% of the cells being bathed in vitamin C.
Some experts suggest that
liposomal vitamin C is vastly superior to IV vitamin C – an expensive but
effective procedure that is done quite often in hospitals and alternative
health clinics. Intravenous vitamin C treatments cost between $125 – $160 a
session. Typical sessions last around two hours.
A daily dosage of one teaspoon of
Liposomal vitamin C costs less than $3 per day and takes no time at all. It
does not require a doctor or needles and is very easy and user friendly to
administer. This will provide 1000mg vitamin C.
For an individual with no major
symptoms or diagnosis that wants good general health: 1-2 teaspoons will be
best. Simply take 1 tsp, 1-2 x daily
Extreme athlete or individual with
major health challenges: 4-6 teaspoons is optimal. Simply take 2 , 2-3x daily
In cases of ‘extreme’ disease – like
late stage infections, cancer or heart disease: doses of up to 120ml per day
have been reported to be effective.
Contraindications would include
allergens to the liposomal compounds such as soy lecithin. Individuals
who are pregnant, young children and taking blood thinning medications should
use smaller dosages. It is always advisable to discuss vitamin C therapy with
your doctor before beginning – although most doctors have very little
experience with this.
Those with iron overload should
understand that vitamin C increases the absorption of iron into the
body, especially in the heart where it can cause problems. Ferritin levels
should ideally be no more than 150 (in women) and 250 – 300 (for men). If you
are above those levels, then please seek specialized advice. Also, wait 2-3
hours after taking the liposomal vitamin C before eating red meat or anything
else that is high in iron – if iron levels are high.
