Anti-aging, collagen, collagen formation, diabetes and liposomal vitamin C

Another interesting area of application is, for example, anti-aging, in which liposomal vitamin C can play a very important role for collagen and collagen formation. When the collagen fibers weaken with age, age wrinkles form.

Collagen, collagen formation, anti-aging, diabetes and liposomal vitamin C

The term collagen is rightly of enormous importance when it comes to anti-aging. Vitamin C (and of course its liposomal form) help to look younger because free radicals are effectively slowed down. Wrinkles are tightened and facial skin is smoothed. In order to bring about visible changes, however, at least 3 g of liposomal vitamin C is required twice a day. However, a higher dosage is easily possible and even advisable.

We recommend our customers to take liposomal vitamin C together with lipoic acid (alpha lipoic acid) to support the effects of vitamin C. It also helps convert blood sugar into energy, thereby fighting diabetes , and is a major contributor to collagen formation.


Allergies often cause a vitamin C deficiency. Inflammation that occurs with an allergy leads to a greater consumption or need for vitamin C. In addition, allergies are often a sign of a weakened immune system, which can be strengthened with this vitamin.
Rheumatic diseases also indicate a low vitamin C level, and especially in the case of autoimmune diseases such as lupus (SLE), the level should definitely be increased in order to counteract the inflammation of the joints.

Gastrointestinal Diseases

When the intestinal mucosa is inflamed, it can absorb little or no vitamin C. Because our intestines are responsible for 80% of our immune system, you should always make sure that enough vitamin C is available.


Smoking drastically decreases vitamin C levels. Smoking burdens the organism with oxidative stress, which is extremely harmful over a long period of time. For example, smokers have “blemished” facial skin and they age much faster than non-smokers. This is a consequence of the oxidative stress, but also of the reduced collagen formation. Smokers should therefore take at least 3 grams (3000 mg) of vitamin C per day.

tumors, cancer

A lack of vitamin C can be very carcinogenic, especially if this deficiency persists for a long time. A sufficient vitamin C level can therefore be a good precaution against many types of cancer. More detailed information on alternative cancer therapy .

heart attack, stroke

A lack of vitamin C causes our arteries to become brittle. These are micro-injuries to the vessels, which our organism then tries to repair with cholesterol LDL. The so-called “bad cholesterol”, which we also urgently need in other ways, becomes a helper here. However, since these micro-injuries cannot be healed due to the lack of vitamin C and arise again and again, the LDL accumulates at these “construction sites” and at some point the well-known closure occurs. It is not the LDL that leads to an infarction, but the cause lies in the micro-injuries mentioned. Read more about exactly this topic when there is a lack of vitamin C here.

Sufficient vitamin C makes the arteries supple again and thus helps to prevent infarction in the brain or heart.


The conventionally recommended amount of vitamin C

The amount of vitamin C recommended by conventional medicine is far below what has now emerged from the new scientific studies. Depending on the country, these recommended amounts were 250 – 350 milligrams per day. This means that our body can only absorb between approx. 50 – 70 milligrams of vitamin C, since the bioavailability of vitamin C is only at max. 20 percent lies.

However, the new scientific studies show that this is far too little and today one speaks of 2000 to 4000 milligrams to achieve effective effectiveness. Even the studies from Harvard University, which stick to more conservative standards, say that an intake of 2000 milligrams is fine for normally healthy people. But other studies go much further. Since one can hardly overdose vitamin C, it is therefore advisable to take a little more than too little of it, which especially affects people who suffer from an illness. But even for smokers who are otherwise healthy, the 2000 milligrams are hardly enough, because smoking reduces the vitamin C level considerably.
