What actually is high-dose liposomal vitamin C?
Every living organism generally experiences some level of oxidative stress. However, according to some scientific studies, there is increasing evidence that oxidative stress is associated with cancer, cardiovascular disease, chronic inflammatory diseases, post-ischemic organ injury, diabetes mellitus, drug toxicity and rheumatoid arthritis. High doses of liposomal vitamin C could help. It is a powerful antioxidant that can counteract this oxidative stress to prevent major damage. Since it is taken orally, one can constantly maintain the required blood saturation in this case. Oral administration also prevents the risk of infection, which unfortunately always accompanies intravenous administration. In addition, liposomal administration is arguably less costly and time-consuming than administration by infusion. Therefore, liposomal administration of vitamin C is taking the place of infusion worldwide and increasingly.
Why Liposomal Vitamin C and what is it?
A liposome is a vesicle or in other words a means of transport to bring medicines or in this case our vitamin C to its destination (cells). Because it has the same structure as our cell membranes, it can easily dock there and deliver its charge (vitamin C) to our cells. It also protects our vitamin C because it is encapsulated in this liposome, which allows stomach acid to pass through undamaged and enter the intestine. From there it is then released into the bloodstream, which then carries it to our cells.
A liposome is very…very small! In order to achieve the correct bioavailability, it must be between 100 nm and 250 nm (nanometers). A nanometer is one millionth of a millimeter, i.e. 0.000 001 mm. You can’t even see it under a microscope .. it takes an electron microscope to see it. It takes a lot of effort to reach that size. But now that it’s in general use, we should be able to benefit from it.
With this liposome, we now have the opportunity to take in high doses of vitamin C without having to have an unpleasant infusion. This simplifies the gift enormously, because not everyone can afford the infusions and not everyone has the time for them either. Depending on the concentration, this can take up to 2 hours. You no longer have to worry about blood saturation, as you can now take liposomal vitamin C several times a day as needed to maintain blood saturation. Liposomal vitamin C has therefore helped us a lot and it is therefore not surprising that over time it has also become so well known to us.
In order to purchase a high-quality product, you should look around, because not every supplier really produces liposomal vitamin C , even if they offer and name it that way. So a bit of research is required.
