We are very excited to introduce our brand new product – Liposomal Vitamin C!
Following the success of our Liposomal CBD, and lots of positive feedback from our customers, we were keen to expand our Liposomal range and including a vitamin C product was a no brainer at this time of the year.
After a long wait and lots of anticipation, we can finally share it with you!
With the growing demands of the modern world, we are much more prone to having a lower vitamin C status. There are many reasons for this including frequent infections,[i] environmental toxins,[ii] medications, stress, and chronic disease. Given the multiple benefits of vitamin C, we could all benefit from some supplementation and Liposomal Vitamin C is a perfect solution, ensuring the most effective absorption, delivery to the cells, and long-lasting effect.
Liposomal technology is a way of optimising the bioavailability of an orally ingested nutrients, by packing it into a tiny structure called a liposome. A liposome is a sphere composed of a type of lipid called a phospholipid, mainly phosphatidylcholine, which contains a small compartment where nutrients can be incorporated. This phospholipid ‘shell’ protects its special cargo and helps to carry the nutrients across the lining of the digestive tract. Once absorbed, the liposomes circulate around the body and are distributed to tissues and organs. Liposomes are deliberately made using the same phospholipids as our cell membranes, which means they can merge with them and deposit the contained nutrients directly into the cell.
When we consume vitamin C, it is delivered to the gut lining where it is transported into the bloodstream by specialised transporters. There is only a limited number of those transporters available, which is why it is mostly recommended to supplement with vitamin C in a ‘little and often’ fashion to optimise absorption. Liposomal Vitamin C bypasses that process completely, which means up to 91% of vitamin C is absorbed. This makes it the optimum ‘one a day’ solution for long lasting results, with no need to take it multiple times a day!
Not all liposomes are created equal though! The liposomal technology used to produce our Liposomal Vitamin C is superior to others on the market because it:
As the optimum and most effective vitamin C product, it is a great supplement for everyone to use on a daily basis, but the liposomal formulation can be particularly beneficial for certain people:
