What is Liposomal Vitamin C?
Liposomal Vitamin C is formulated to increase absorption and deliver higher bioavailability potential. What does that mean exactly? Well unfortunately, most traditional oral vitamin C products are simply not easy for your body to absorb and exit the body, largely unused. Have you ever taken vitamin C and later noticed your urine was bright yellow? That is a perfect example of a vitamin C brand that is not bioavailable. Dr Mercola Liposomal Vitamin C is different because it has a higher potential for absorption. Liposomal technology helps everyone benefit from Vitamin C better, but it’s especially great for those with digestive issues. It assists in the formation of liposomes which help Liposomal Vitamin C feel gentle on the stomach and protect against intestinal discomfort. Liposomal Vitamin C by Dr. Mercola is simply more effective than other, conventional brands.

Vitamin C Deficiency Symptoms
Vitamin C deficiency is actually quite rare in our modern society, but many people do suffer from low levels of vitamin C. It plays such an important role in so many of our bodily functions, it’s important to be able to recognize the signs of vitamin C deficiency. Who is at risk for low vitamin C? People who have poor digestion, older people who might have impaired absorption abilities, those who eat a diet that does not contain a variety of foods, smokers, and pregnant or breastfeeding mothers are all more at risk for low vitamin C. Symptoms may include dry skin that bruises more easily, fatigue, bleeding gums, nosebleeds, wounds that are slow to heal, frequent illness and infections, dry hair, and tooth loss.

Antioxidants may also play a role in helping to reduce some of the symptoms of normal aging. Although unprocessed whole foods are rich in a wide variety of antioxidants, many are unable to eat this way and often choose poor-quality diets which are insufficient in the full range of antioxidants and free radical scavengers your body needs. That's why Dr. Mercola recommends you make a conscious effort to increase your antioxidant intake by eating as much unprocessed, wholesome and organic foods as possible.
Three Main Ways to Get What Your Body Deserves
Basically, there are three ways for you to get vitamin C benefits into your body so it can go to work for you. First, eat a rich diet of raw, organic vegetables and fruits. Second, have vitamin C administered intravenously (IV). Finally take an oral vitamin C supplement. This may seem a praticaly way to boost your vitamin C levels by complementing a vegetable-rich diet, but there are some challenges as well.
One of the main challenges with taking an oral vitamin C supplement is that typically, only a small percentage of the vitamin C (ascorbic acid) that is consumed actually gets absorbed by your body. Estimates are all over the map with some bioavailability estimates below 20%, with the balance staying behind in your colon to attract water which can cause diarrhea.
This brings up another potential challenge with traditional oral vitamin C, it can potentially cause occasional gastrointestinal distress. Traditional oral vitamin C supplements are typically not well tolerated in higher doses and can cause intestinal discomfort. Thankfully, science moves on and has developed a 21st century version of vitamin C that eliminates most of these hassles. It is an extraordinary type of oral vitamin C that can help put most of these challenges to rest.
Why Liposomal Absorption Provides Some Major Advantages
The bottom line with traditional oral vitamin C is that it does not have the bioavailability advantages of the liposomal technology. Liposomal absorption is quite different from intestinal absorption. With intestinal absorption, in order for your food and nutrients to be used, they first have to be broken down by your digestive system. Once they are broken down to smaller fragments, your body can then absorb them. Finally, these nutrients enter your bloodstream and your body is able to utilize them.
However, with liposomal technology the tiny particles of the phospholipid-coated nutrient create molecules of vitamin C coated with a substance similar to the cell walls themselves. The coated vitamin C molecules can more readily be absorbed. Liposomal technology helps reduce the potential gastrointestinal distress that can accompany upper levels of traditional oral vitamin C.
Liposomal Vitamin C is delivered using a "Licaps" capsule instead of a softgel or caplique. Licaps use innovative "Fusion Technology" to seal the capsule without the use of banding. This extraordinary liquid capsule technology can provide many beneficial advantages over others because it reduces oxidation potential by flushing the liquid formulation with nitrogen during the capsule-filling process, creating a freshness bubble. Licaps ensure two-piece capsules are hermetically sealed to significantly reduce the potential for leakage, yielding a precisely tight, one-piece capsule. Finally, Licaps enhance shelf-life through exemplary filling and sealing processes.
