Directions: Shake well before use and consume as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
Manufacture: LIPO C is made in Australia by an Australian company in a GMP & HACCP Certified Facility.
Liposomal Vitamin C 200ml quantity
Each 200ml bottle contains over 60 serves of Liposomal Vitamin C
Serving size: ½ teaspoon (1000 mg vitamin C). The Vitamin C concentration of LIPO C is 330mg Ascorbic Acid per ml.
Liposomes are the Best Delivery System for Vitamin C
Much of our biological chemistry is based around both water and fat solubility. Just as water and oil do not mix, there are challenges involved with bringing a water soluble nutrient into a fat soluble matrix such as cell membranes. This incompatibility leads to lower rates of nutrient uptake and utilization within the cells.
Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin that doesn’t interact particularly efficiently with cell membrane walls. As cell walls are made up of fatty acids, estimates are that water soluble oral vitamin C intake has an approximate absorption rate of 20% into the bloodstream with the other 80% accumulating in the colon. Higher vitamin C dosage is also associated with unpleasant digestive complaints such as cramping and diarrhoea because it draws water into the colon.
What are Liposomes
Liposomes are tiny nano-size* fat soluble vehicles for carrying nutrients directly into the body’s cells. Dr Alec Banham, a haematologist at the Babraham Institute in Cambridge UK, discovered the liposomal technology. These are a double layer of fatty materials which is similar to the phospholipid bilayer of the cell membranes in our body. “Lipo” is Greek for fat while “soma” means body. (*A nanometre is one millionth of a millimetre.)
As the Liposomal vitamin C is packaged in a similar way to our body’s cells, it passes through the digestive barrier and delivers the nutrient directly into the bloodstream and then into our body’s cells. This results in a much higher absorption rate with over 90% of the liposomal C bathing the body’s cells in vitamin C. The liposomal vitamin C transport system has distinct advantages over Intravenous vitamin C which is an expensive but effective procedure that is done in some hospitals and alternative health clinics.
Nanometre particle size of the LIPO C is only 72 Nm. The particle size of liposomes in LIPO C is 30% smaller than the size of the liposomal C particles of next best competing product (100Nm). Not only is LIPO C is 40% lower in cost, as a bonus, it tastes better as well.
