Liposomal encapsulation technology is used to generate tiny spherical packages, which surround the vitamin C and assist in absorbtion efficiency.

 

Regular vitamin C supplements typically offer ~ 0.5 – 1 grams of vitamin C per dose. This is because without encapsulation, higher amounts tend to loosen the bowels and are quickly eliminated (vitamin C attracts water to the GI tract).

 

Liposomal formulations on the other hand, provide a convenient way to deliver much higher quantities of vitamin C, with good bowel tollerance and a more gradual release, all without the need for intravenous (IV) infusions.

 

These liposomes serve to protect the vitamin C in the centre and helps increase absorption efficiency  compared with “naked’ vitamin C

Macrophages engulf the liposomes, resulting in transportation of the vitamin C right to where it's needed, the front line of infection and the lymph nodes

In the liposomal encapsulation process, a phospholipid bilayer is formed around vitamin C molecules, forming tiny spherical packages called liposomes

Important notice: Taking large amounts of vitamin C is generally well tolerated. The lethal dose (LD50) for a 70kg adult is an enormous 840 grams. However, some individuals should exercise caution when taking vitamin c supplements. Since vitamin C is metabolised to oxalate and excreted by the kidneys, people with low kidney function should avoid high doses of vitamin C. There is also a rare genetic disorder known as glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency. People with G6PD deficiency should avoid high doses of vitamin C.
