Since liposomal vitamin C has become known about 10 years ago in Europe, too, and has been used with great success, many suppliers and producers set out to make other liposomal drinks. The term “liposomal” alone seems to have acquired a magical value.
But, which other liposomal products are useful? Here is our answer
and some clarification.
The problem with vitamin C in oral and conventional administration in the form of tablets and capsules or liquids is its bioavailability. Because of its poor bioavailability, vitamin C could previously only be administered intravenously in high doses to achieve a correspondingly high blood saturation.
However, research showed that it was possible to create vitamin C in liposomal form so that it could be administered to the body in high doses without “needle and drip.” The downside was that the production of genuine liposomal vitamin C was complex, involved nanotechnolgy, and therefore, was relatively expensive. But it was a breakthrough, and so, liposomal vitamin C became popular.
It was now possible to circumvent the poor bioavailability of the conventional form and achieve the desired blood saturation without infusion. Especially in alternative cancer therapy, high blood saturation is very important. It has been shown that the organism utilized the liposomal form even better than with the administration of an infusion.
Liposomal vitamin C has proven itself on the market. With its commercial success, it was not long before various suppliers began to manufacture other liposomal products as well, resulting in the following list of beverages:
Even liposomal iron is now offered… That is a bit scary if considering what an iron overload (hemochromatosis) can lead to. Zinc can also be easily overdosed, resulting in zinc intoxication. Since there is an interaction between zinc and copper, zinc intoxication can lead to copper deficiency, which in turn can lead to anemia and nerve damage.
Only with glutathione and its equally low bioavailability, things look a little different. In this special case, properly dosed liposomal glutathione may be appropriate. However, it is to be noted that vitamin C already stimulates the body’s own glutathione production and thus raises its level. Therefore, this application remains somewhat questionable.
Turmeric, too, is difficult for our organism to utilize, but since it is a very inexpensive natural remedy (500 capsules at about EUR 50 from organic cultivation), a higher intake can make up for the poor bioavailability. 500 capsules last for more than 100 days, so, in our opinion, there is no apparent need for its liposomal form.
By contrast, vitamin B, zinc, vitamin D3, and magnesium are very well absorbed by the body in the normal form in food or by supplements. No liposomal form is needed, but still, these expensive products sell despite their possible harmfulness and so, they are here to stay. However, any serious suppliers should distance themselves from these offerings made for purely commercial reasons without health benefit, cashing in on people’s lack of knowledge. Will this ever stop, or will ‘liposomal vegetables’ or ‘liposomal bananas’ be available someday?
We, too, make a living selling our liposomal products with expenses we have to cover.
But we decidedly refrain from producing useless liposomal forms just to improve our balance. Therefore, we limit ourselves to 2 liposomal variants of vitamin C: 1) high-dose liposomal vitamin C with synthetic ascorbic acid; 2) natural liposomal vitamin C with all minerals and flavonoids from the acerola cherry.
