Most of us know about or have heard of the benefits of vitamin C. As humans, we cannot make our own vitamin C. There are various forms of vitamin C in supplement form but I want you to know about a relatively new form called liposomal vitamin C. Vitamin C from ascorbic acid is water soluble. Liposomal vitamin C is fat soluble. Our cell membrane wall is made of fatty acids so it makes sense that liposomal vitamin C will increase absorption in to the cell membrane. Considerably!
Dr. Thomas Levy, author of Curing the Incurable: Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases, and Toxins” states that 1 gram of liposomal vitamin C is approximately equal to 15 grams of ascorbic acid vitamin C. There is also very little chance of experiencing the ‘bowel effect’ with liposomal vitamin C. No dose will make you sick or cause death.
It is estimated that 25% to 33% of U.S. adults are deficient in vitamin C. Smokers, the elderly and men are considered higher risk of vitamin C deficiency. Linus Pauling, Noble Peace prize recipient, conducted extensive research on the relationship of vitamin C and atherosclerosis. Vitamin C is an essential antioxidant and is known to support the immune function, is an anti-inflammatory, fights infection and may be beneficial as an anti-cancer agent. I recommend cancer patients consider receiving IV vitamin C therapy because it acts as a natural chemotherapy agent. Taking orally liposomal vitamin C is also recommended.
In our Natural Living department we offer Dr. Mercola’s Liposomal Vitamin C capsules which contain no soy derivatives. The capsule is superior to a softgel. Please ask for dosing information for maintenance, for extreme athletes and for extreme diseases such as heart disease, cancer and infections. Please see a health professional if you have elevated levels of iron before consuming vitamin C.
