Your daily dose of Vitamin C is here!
What is Vitamin C, and why do we need it?
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that acts as an antioxidant in the body. It is essential for the growth, development, and repair of all body tissues, and it plays a crucial role in many bodily functions. Vitamin C supplements are dietary supplements that contain higher amounts of vitamin C than the daily recommended intake from the food we eat.
There are several reasons why someone might choose to take a vitamin C supplement. For example, some people may have a higher risk of vitamin C deficiency, such as smokers, individuals with poor diets, or people with certain medical conditions that affect nutrient absorption. Additionally, vitamin C may provide a variety of health benefits, such as supporting immune function, promoting skin health, and reducing inflammation.
Why liquid Liposomal Vitamin C is one of the best forms of Vitamin C?
There have been several studies comparing the absorption of vitamin C from different forms of supplements, including liquid, tablet, powder, and capsule. For example:
- In a study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers compared the absorption of vitamin C from a liquid supplement and a tablet supplement. They found that the liquid supplement resulted in higher levels of vitamin C in the blood, suggesting that it was absorbed more efficiently than the tablet supplement.
One of the newer forms of Vitamin C is liposomal Vitamin C. This form of Vitamin C is encapsulated in tiny lipid molecules that protect the Vitamin C from being destroyed by stomach acid and digestive enzymes. This allows more of the Vitamin C to reach the bloodstream intact, leading to higher absorption levels.
Whatever Vitamin C your body doesn’t absorb is secreted through your urine. That is the hard truth to accept and to understand that bioavailability and absorption of vitamins in our body are equally important as the amount of vitamin we take per dosage.
Liposomal technology explained…
Liposomal technology is a technique that involves encapsulating nutrients within a lipid (fat) molecule to facilitate their delivery and absorption in the body. This technology has several benefits, including increased bioavailability and targeted delivery of nutrients to specific organs or tissues.
One of the main advantages of liposomal technology is that it enhances the absorption and utilization of nutrients in the body. Liposomes can protect the nutrients from degradation in the digestive tract and facilitate their absorption through the intestinal wall. This can result in higher concentrations of nutrients in the bloodstream, leading to improved bioavailability and efficacy.
Liposomal technology also allows for targeted delivery of nutrients to specific tissues or organs. By modifying the size and composition of the liposomes, scientists can direct the nutrients to specific areas of the body where they are needed most. For example, liposomal vitamin C has been shown to accumulate in tumors, leading to increased cytotoxicity and improved outcomes in cancer patients.
Another benefit of liposomal technology is that it can reduce the potential for adverse effects associated with high doses of certain nutrients. By encapsulating the nutrients within liposomes, they are protected from interacting with other compounds in the body that may cause toxicity or side effects.
Overall, liposomal technology is a promising approach to improving the delivery and efficacy of nutrients in the body.
Absorption levels of regular Vitamin C versus Liposomal Vitamin C
Several studies have been conducted to compare the absorption levels of liposomal Vitamin C versus regular Vitamin C. One study, published in the journal Nutrients in 2016, compared the bioavailability of liposomal Vitamin C to that of regular Vitamin C in healthy volunteers. The results showed that liposomal Vitamin C had significantly higher absorption levels than regular Vitamin C.
Another study, published in the journal Trials in 2019, compared the effects of liposomal Vitamin C and regular Vitamin C on oxidative stress and inflammation in patients with Type 2 diabetes. The study found that liposomal Vitamin C was more effective in reducing oxidative stress and inflammation than regular Vitamin C.
What is the source of liposomes in Vita C?
Vita C uses Sunflower lecithin as a source of creating liposomal Vitamin C product. Sunflower lecithin is a natural phospholipid that is commonly used as an ingredient in liposomal vitamin C supplements. Lecithin is a type of fat that is found in many different foods, including egg yolks and soybeans. However, sunflower lecithin is a popular choice for liposomal vitamin C supplements because it is a non-GMO and soy-free alternative to soy lecithin.
