Is liposomal vitamin C better than regular vitamin C?
In short, yes! Think of food supplements as delivery couriers - a liposome is a premium parcel service. Your digestive system, the delivery route, has the perils of stomach acid, metabolism and excretion which the "parcel" must survive. A standard supplement is largely degraded by this process and if the nutrients do reach their destination, they're not in an optimal state. A liposome shields nutrients from the harsh digestive environment and this allows for successful delivery to the intended destination, with the contents largely unscathed.
What is liposomal vitamin C good for?
Vitamin C is water-soluble, this means that it is easy for your body to get rid of it as urine. As Vitamin C is a vital micro-nutrient for optimal health, it must be regularly replenished. Liposomal Vitamin C is good for ensuring high absorption as the nutrient is encapsulated. Several human trials have demonstrated greater bioavailability of Vitamin C when delivered via liposomes compared to un-encapsulated.
What is liposomal vitamin C?
Liposomal Encapsulation Technology (LET) is the process of filling tiny bubbles called liposomes with hydrophobic or hydrophilic substances like Vitamin C. In other words, Vitamin C is encapsulated in liposomes, which then protect the nutrient until it enters circulation and is delivered to the cells.
Is the vitamin C in your products natural?
As far as your body is concerned, whether the vitamin C is food-state or synthetic, it is regarded as chemically identical. There are no known differences in biological activity. There have been at least two human studies that compare the bioavailability of ascorbic acid from synthetic and natural sources. The results of these studies showed no clinically significant differences. The vitamin C we use is not food-state but rather synthesised in a laboratory from glucose which is extracted from non-GMO corn.
