There are so many benefits of Vitamin C
When it comes to boosting immunity, Vitamin C is one of the primary supplements I recommend. It provides immune support, antioxidant protection, and is an essential nutrient for many body functions.
It also helps to repair and produce healthy connective tissue, skin, collagen, and form blood vessels. Vitamin C is not synthesized in the body, so we either need to ingest from food, or take a supplement.
The primary difference between Liposomal Vitamin C and other Vitamin C supplements is in the amount that enters circulation. This form of Vitamin C is delivered to the body in phosphatidylcholine liposomes.
Liposomes are tiny vesicles composed of phospholipids. These phospholipids closely resemble the cell membranes in our body - allowing the liposomal vitamin C to diffuse directly into the cell membrane.
Why take a liposomal form?
The mechanism for absorbing Vitamin C capsules is slow and not effective. In fact, the absorption levels of vitamin C in capsule form actually decreases with higher dosages, because gastrointestinal saturation.
Taking vitamin C in the liposomal form, you absorb it more effectively. Since Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, if you exceed what your body can absorb in capsule or powder form, you end up with loose stools or gastrointestinal cramps and not absorbing it well.
With a liposomal form of vitamin C, you can take the higher dose and your body will actually be able to absorb it and use it.
