Knowledge: Liposomal Vitamin C


Vitamin C is an essential vitamin, which means our body cannot produce it. It is water-soluble and found in many fruits and vegetables, including oranges, strawberries, kiwi fruit, bell peppers, broccoli, kale, and spinach. The recommended daily intake for vitamin C is 75 mg for women and 90 mg for men. While it is commonly advised to get your vitamin C intake from foods, many people turn to supplements to meet their needs.

Why Bionutricia Liposomal vitamin c in powder form is better?

It is the most stable in quality as compare to liquid
It adopt self-emulsifying drug “delivery” system (SEDDS) which already proven to be the most efficient on nutrient absorption

Encapsulated Technology makes Liposomal Vitamin C up to 2x more bioavailable than regular Vitamin C.

Increase blood antioxidant level

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can strengthen our body’s natural defenses. Antioxidants are molecules that boost the immune system. They do so by protecting cells from harmful molecules called free radicals. When free radicals accumulate, they can promote a state known as oxidative stress, which has been linked to many chronic diseases. Studies show that consuming more vitamin C can increase our blood antioxidant levels by up to 30%. This helps the body’s natural defenses fight inflammation in lungs and brains. Studies have shown that people with dementia have lower blood levels of vitamin C and high vitamin C intake from food or supplements have a protective effect on thinking and memory during aging.

Help manage high blood pressure

Studies have shown that vitamin C may help lower blood pressure in both those with and without high blood pressure. An analysis of 29 human studies found that taking a vitamin C supplement reduced systolic blood pressure (the upper value) by 3.8 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure (the lower value) by 1.5 mmHg, on average, in healthy adults. In adults with high blood pressure, vitamin C supplements reduced systolic blood pressure by 4.9 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure by 1.7 mmHg, on average.

Lower the risk of heart disease

An analysis of 9 studies with a combined 293,172 participants found that after 10 years, people who took at least 700 mg of vitamin C daily had a 25% lower risk of heart disease than those who did not take a vitamin C supplement. Another analysis of 13 studies looked at the effects of taking at least 500 mg of vitamin C daily on risk factors for heart disease, such as blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels. The analysis found that taking a vitamin C supplement significantly reduced LDL (bad) cholesterol by approximately 7.9 mg/dL and blood triglycerides by 20.1 mg/dL.

Reduce blood uric acid levels and help prevent gout

A study including 1,387 men found that those who consumed the most vitamin C had significantly lower blood levels of uric acid than those who consumed the least. Another study followed 46,994 healthy men over 20 years to determine whether vitamin C intake was linked to developing gout. It found that people who took a vitamin C supplement had a 44% lower gout risk.

Boosts immunity

One of the main reasons people take vitamin C supplements is to boost their immunity, as vitamin C is involved in many parts of the immune system. First, vitamin C helps encourage the production of white blood cells known as lymphocytes and phagocytes, which help protect the body against infection. Second, vitamin C helps these white blood cells function more effectively while protecting them from damage by potentially harmful molecules, such as free radicals. Third, vitamin C is an essential part of the skin’s defense system. It’s actively transported to the skin, where it can act as an antioxidant and help strengthen the skin’s barriers. For example, people who have pneumonia tend to have lower vitamin C levels, and vitamin C supplements have been shown to shorten the recovery time. Vitamin C appears to reduce the severity of colds and recovery time by 8% in adults and 14% in children.

Why use liposomes to deliver vitamin C?

Compared with vitamin C infusion, oral vitamin C administration is typically less effective, in part due to inferior vitamin C bioavailability. Following ingestion, subsequent vitamin C bioavailability is largely determined by rates of intestinal absorption and further influenced by renal reabsorption and excretion. Infusion of vitamin C is an impractical mode of administration for most of the general public and also carries a risk of infection and discomfort. Accordingly, oral consumption of vitamin C encapsulated in liposomes is of great interest.

Liposomes are manufactured microscopic, hollow spherical vesicles composed of a lipid bilayer. When loaded with vitamin C, liposomes are a very effective method of supplement delivery. Vitamin C that is surrounded by a layer of fat will help the vitamin C to enter our cells from the bloodstream. This is crucial because Vitamin C is water soluble. Liposomes are designed to easily pass into your cells so vitamin C does not get excreted in urine. Once the vitamin C has been delivered, the liposomes break down and our body will utilize the MCTs to make new cells.
