LIPOSOMAL VITAMIN C FOR MAXIMISED ABSORPTION
The extensive health benefits of vitamin C are obvious but most people simply don’t get enough in their diet. This is further hindered by its limited bioavailability.
Supplementing vitamin C provides a reasonable alternative; unfortunately it is difficult for the body to absorb large amounts of standard vitamin C all at once because of its inability to withstand the digestive processes in the body.
At best, the body can only absorb up to 200mg of standard vitamin C at a time, the rest is rapidly eliminated from the body through the urine. Much higher doses can cause gastric distress including gas, cramps and diarrhoea.
Until recently intravenous delivery of vitamin C has proven to be the most effective route for absorption, but this method of delivery is both costly and impractical. However, Liposomal vitamin C allows you to take vitamin C orally ensuring it reaches the cells where it is needed.
Liposomal technology is able to increase the absorption of nutrients by capturing the active ingredients inside protective membranes called liposomes. These tiny liposomal bubbles consist of bi-layers of phospholipid molecules (similar to your own body’s cell membranes), that protect the contents and manage to by-pass the digestive juices to deliver the vitamin C directly to the cells. This unique method of delivery protects the vitamin C from oxidation and degradation avoiding gastro-intestinal distress and ensures almost 100% bioavailability.
A substantial number of studies have already documented the versatile advantages of using Liposomes for targeted site-specific delivery and efficient absorption through cells.
