LIPOSOMAL VITAMIN C
Liposomal vitamin C is more valuable to the body than conventional vitamin C.
Vitamin C is very important for the human body. It is involved in more than 15,000 metabolic processes. Experts recommend that we consume between 1,000 and 3,000mg of vitamin C every day. Those who are unwell even have higher vitamin C requirements.
CONSEQUENCES OF A VITAMIN C DEFICIENCY
Because the body cannot produce this essential substance on its own, it has to get it from elsewhere. As the majority of food nowadays has a relatively low vitamin content, more and more consumers are taking nutritional supplements which in their necessary dosage are supplying the active ingredient. If the body does not get enough vitamin C, this can result in a deficiency. These include, for example, general feelings of weakness, constant fatigue, muscle aches and an increased risk of infection. In young children, this can lead to growth disorders (Möller Barlow Disease/Scurvy).
Without enough vitamin C, the body will develop weaknesses in the connective tissue which can even affect organs. Severe symptoms of a deficiency can include retinal bleeding, bleeding on the brain, joint deformities and gum inflammations which can lead to a dental emergency. Furthermore, you increase your risk of having a heart attack or getting cancer.
In order to prevent a vitamin C deficiency, it is recommended that you consume large quantities of it yourself. However, the problem is that the body can only store a small amount. Excess vitamin C leaves the body through the urinary tract. In addition to this, a lot of vitamin C is lost on its way through the body because it has already been metabolised. Additionally, even vitamin C which is intravenously administered by a doctor in high doses will mostly go unused (though in small amounts). Our doses of liposomal vitamin C stop that from happening.
WHAT IS LIPSOMAL VITAMIN C?
Lipo C can be found in a microscopically small nanobodies (liposome), which consist of double-layered phospholipid. It has a molecular structure which is similar to the natural cell membrane. With the help of these liposomes, vitamin C can be quickly transported to wherever it is most needed in the body.
Because the lipid shell cannot be deconstructed on its way through the body, 90 percent of lipo C is bioavailable. As has been proved in clinical studies, it is therefore even higher than the intravenously administered vitamin C (60 to 70 percent).
Sunflower lecithin is ideal for making your body produce its own liposomal vitamin C.
Liposomes travel through the stomach and bowel almost completely unharmed because of their special formation, and they can pass seamlessly through the wall of the small bowel. So in the somatic cells, vitamin C supports the relevant metabolic activities. However, the phospolipid shells are used for repairing damaged cell membrane.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF TAKING HIGH QUALITY LIPOSOMAL VITAMIN C?
Taking Lipo offers the following advantage:
- It allows your body to use all of the health promoting properties (for which the supply of vitamin C prevents deficiency symptoms) in the best possible way.
- If you suffer from a chronic or acute illness, you can take an even higher dose of vitamin C.
- Because the vitamin is virtually unharmed on its journey to wherever it is needed, the daily minimum dose will be correspondingly lower. However, the vitamin compound is highly effective.
- Because of the lower dosage, the risk of getting a gastric irritation with diarrhoea is smaller.
- Because of the very low levels of the active ingredient, the consumer will save money by producing their on liposomal vitamin C with sunflower lecithin.
ADVANTAGES VS NORMAL INTAKE OF VITAMIN C POWDER OR TABLETS
1) The bowel will not be irritated (treatment with huge doses of vitamin C can lead to diarrhoea)
2) Liposomal vitamin C is four times more effective than normal vitamin C (91% vs. 18%)!
CAN YOU ALSO PRODUCE THE VITAMIN COMPOUND NATURALLY?
Vitamin C, which is extremely valuable, can of course also be produced naturally. For this, you need lecithin which is 100% pure (without carrier substances, which is the case in standard lecithin granulate compounds). The lecithin which is available in the industry is mostly made from soya and only contains very little phosphatidylcholine – however, this is a building block which has to be 100% contained in the nanobodies so that their membranes are stable enough. Furthermore, soya lecithin is unfortunately often made from genetically modified soya. As a result, IVOVITAL sunflower lecithin is very much needed.
