Why Liposomal Is Better
Most ordinary forms of oral vitamin C – tablets, capsules, powders, liquids and even the vitamin C from your diet – are not processed and absorbed efficiently by your body. As a result, much of this vitamin C is never transferred into your bloodstream and even less of it makes it into your cells where it’s needed most. In fact, when you take 1,000 mg or more of regular oral vitamin C, more than half of it is passed as waste by your body.1
The Health Nut’s Liposomal Vitamin C encapsulates the C molecules in liposomes made from Essential Phospholipids, which protect the vitamin C from destruction in the digestive system. Within minutes of taking The Health Nut’s Liposomal Vitamin C, liposomes filled with vitamin C are transported directly into your bloodstream, and into your cells.
This liposome-encapsulated form of vitamin C is the first choice of people who really understand bioavailability and the importance of high-dose vitamin C. Other forms of vitamin C succumb to absorption barriers that vastly limit the level of vitamin C that can enter the bloodstream. The Health Nut’s Liposomal Vitamin C crashes through these barriers to get high potency vitamin C where you need it most, your cells.

How Does The Health Nut’s Liposomal Vitamin C work?
The benefits of vitamin C are well known. What is lesser known by the public is that high dose vitamin C is poorly tolerated and will cause intestinal discomfort. That is, unless the high-dose vitamin C is taken in liposomal form.
The Health Nut’s Liposomal vitamin C is a very good alternative to injections and IV (intravenous drip). It may actually be easier, because the liposomal vitamin C is not only fully absorbed, but since it is taken orally, it can be used daily and even several times a day. Daily administration of IV and injections are quite unpractical, and are not free of risks.
Certain individuals react to vitamin C with intestinal problems, including diarrhea. Even individuals with a high tolerance to vitamin C will at very high doses eventually experience the same problems. High vitamin C doses are usually prescribed by doctors and other health care practitioners, and are administered in a clinical setting. That’s mainly because of the fact that these doses are injected. The full absorption in liposomal form is a practical way to avoid sticking needles.
Vitamin C liposomes are absorbed in a very unique manner. Liposomes are microscopic fat balls, the width of a single hair strand. These microscopic fat particles are made from phospholipids and have a cargo load, in the form of a nutrient hidden inside. These phospholipids are the same as in egg yolk or krill oil. The liposomes are absorbed by melting into the human cell, since they have an outer layer (membrane) that is made from the same phospholipids as the cell membrane. The liposome and the cell basically merge like two soap bells will merge when they touch each other. The content of the two spheres will also blend together and in this ingenious way the vitamin C in the liposome is directly delivered into the cell.
Liposomal absorption is very different from intestinal absorption. Most nutrients and drugs are molecules that are too large to be absorbed. The most common way for food absorption is to break down the nutritional molecules to a size where they can slip between the stomach and intestinal cell walls and enter the blood stream. The liver and other organs then re-assemble the molecules. Liposomal vitamin C absorption is very different because it directly enters the cell. The fat layer of the liposome protects the vitamin C from coming into direct contact with the stomach and intestines. This protection prevents the intestinal side effects of ascorbic acid (vitamin C).
Liposomes are designed to minimize intestinal discomfort, since certain individuals have difficulty tolerating vitamin C therapy at the clinically relevant higher doses. The recommended daily dosage for liposomal vitamin C is typically 1,000 mg. In certain cases doctors may prescribe more.
Directions for Use
As a dietary supplement, take 5ml 1 to 2 times per day, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
Children under 12 can take 2,5ml 1 to 2 times per day, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner. For best results, pour into one or more ounces of your favorite cool beverage, drink on an empty stomach, and wait at least 15 minutes before eating for maximum absorption.
We do not recommend mixing in hot beverages, because this could damage the liposomes.
We also do not recommend blending in a food processor or blender.
