Why should it be liposomal vitamin C?
Why Liposomal Vitamin C and what is it? One reads more and more about the liposomal vitamin C and more and more suppliers praise the liposomal product on the market. Many people have heard that liposomal vitamin C can perform some ”miracles”. It is said to heal so many diseases and promise so much hope for the seriously ill.
What is it really about? Is it really a miracle drug? Can it do more than conventional medicine?
To shed some light on the matter, let’s take a closer look at this topic.
But at the beginning it should be said that it is and remains vitamin C and nothing else. It is certainly not a miracle cure and it cannot work miracles. It’s all about the way you can get vitamin C into your body. It’s about supplying this vitamin to our body as effectively and effectively as possible and that’s where the “miracles” stop. However, exactly this way of supplying the vitamin is revolutionary and highly effective.
Vitamin C, our intestines and usability = bioavailability
First of all, it should be said here that vitamin C has a very low bioavailability. This means that only a fraction of the amount of vitamin C ingested can be used and utilized by our body. For example, if we take 1000 mg of vitamin C in a tablet or capsule, our body can only absorb 18%, i.e. 180 mg. The rest of 820 mg is excreted in the urine. So we are talking about low bioavailability. Furthermore, our intestines have a relatively low tolerance for vitamin C. If, for example, you take 5000 mg instead of 1000 mg precisely because of its low bioavailability to compensate for the loss mentioned, our intestines react negatively to this amount. The intestinal tolerance has been exceeded and the result is usually diarrhea, or diarrhea as it is popularly known. Almost the entire amount of vitamin C ingested is then excreted.
So we want to add more vitamin C to our bodies now? As we now know, this is not possible with the additional intake of vitamin C. In the past, administration by direct infusion into the bloodstream was therefore chosen. This was cumbersome and required trained personnel. Liposomal vitamin C has made the breakthrough and everyone can now take their ration of vitamin C orally.
What is the difference between regular vitamin C and liposomal vitamin C?
The difference is that in the liposomal form, the vitamin C is encapsulated in a lipid (smallest fat bubble). Encapsulated in this way, it can bypass the strong stomach acids and thus reach the intestines, where it is then absorbed by our intestinal villi. These now release our encapsulated vitamin C into our bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream, it can then reach our cells undamaged. The intestinal tolerance mentioned above is no longer relevant here, because our intestines receive an encapsulated vitamin in a lipid and not pure vitamin C. This is why you can also avoid diarrhea with it. The bioavailability has therefore become very high and one can assume up to 95%. In other words, if you take 1000 mg of liposomal vitamin C, then your body can use up to 950 mg of it.
Advantage and effectiveness of liposomal administration
It is now quite clear that we have increased the effectiveness of the liposomal administration enormously. From the conventional method (tablets and capsules) and an effectiveness of only 18%, we have reached around 95% with liposomal administration. It should also be mentioned that a constant blood saturation (by taking several times a day) can be guaranteed.
