Liposomal Vitamin C

What's Liposomal Vitamin C?

Everyone knows what Vitamin C is, at least, they think they do. But did you know that you may not be getting as much Vitamin C as you think you are? 

In this article, we’ll go over the real benefits of Vitamin C and why you may not be getting enough of it. We’ll also talk about what Liposomal Vitamin C is and how it can fix that problem for you.

What Are The Benefits Of Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an essential vitamin. It’s essential because, unlike other animals, humans cannot produce their own Vitamin C. It’s also known as L-ascorbic acid. 

You can find Vitamin C in a variety of foods such as fruits, greens, potatoes, and tomatoes. You can also find it in various supplements.

Vitamin C plays an important role in many of our bodily functions.

These include, but not limited to, the following:

Combating Free Radicals

Free radicals are different kinds of particles that cause something called oxidative stress in the body.

Think of oxidative stress as a process that damages your body’s cells over time.

Vitamin C can act as an antioxidant. This means it can combat these free radicals and can help in reversing the negative effects of oxidative stress over time.

Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables that contain Vitamin C is one of the best ways to combat free radicals and oxidative stress. If you can’t get those foods for whatever reason, try a Vitamin C supplement instead.

Improving Immunity

Vitamin C is also responsible for improving your body’s immunity. That being said, Vitamin C doesn’t improve immunity in the way most people think.

Studies suggest that Vitamin C doesn’t do as much to shorten the length of your cold if you only start taking it when you start noticing symptoms.

The only exceptions are people who are under a large amount of physical stress or are constantly exposed to cold weather.

So unless you’re working outside this winter or a marathon runner, it’s more beneficial to use Vitamin C consistently during cold and flu season instead of just when you feel sick.

That’s because studies show that Vitamin C can shorten the length of colds and other diseases when it’s taken ahead of time. So don’t just treat Vitamin C like medicine to take when you’re sick.

Instead, treat your Vitamin C intake as a preventative measure. You can even take your Vitamin C along with Micro Factor and Opti-Greens 50 which can help support a healthy and strong immune system.

Collagen Production

Vitamin C plays an important role in the production and biosynthesis of collagen. The same goes for L-carnitine and other neurotransmitters. Your body needs these things in order to metabolize protein into individual amino acids.

Without the ability to metabolize protein, your body cannot create all of the necessary amino acids it needs to function. This can lead to eventual disorders if it’s left untreated for long enough.

Collagen is also an important component in many kinds of connective tissue. These connective tissues are helpful during the wound healing process.

Therefore, without the proper amount of Vitamin C, it’s possible that your wounds will not heal as quickly.

Cardiovascular Health

Vitamin C is the body's most essential antioxidant. Antioxidants can help protect cells from oxidative stress, damage, and inflammation.

For this reason, vitamin C has been long studied and considered as a potential way to increase overall cardiovascular health.

How Absorbable Is Vitamin C

The biggest problem with Vitamin C is that, whether you take it in a supplement form or eat foods with Vitamin C in them, your body has a hard time absorbing it.

The average man needs at least 90 milligrams of Vitamin C every day whereas women need about 75 milligrams. That’s the equivalent to a cup of orange juice or grapefruit juice every day.

That doesn’t sound very hard. But it’s trickier when you consider how your body doesn’t absorb most of the Vitamin C that’s in your juice. Most of it will be excreted next time you go to the bathroom.

You could make the argument that all you need is a second or third cup of juice.

But while your body will not absorb all of that Vitamin C, it will absorb all of the sugar.

That can be hard on your waistline if not accounted for in your macros for the day.

Also, my rule of thumb for my clients is to try to drink as few calories as possible unless it is their Post-Workout Shake or a protein shake.

So how do you get around this and give your body a better chance of absorbing Vitamin C?

This is where Liposomal Vitamin C comes in.

What's Liposomal Vitamin C

Liposomal Vitamin C is a new, more efficient way of consuming this essential vitamin.

Basically, Liposomal Vitamin C  is a Vitamin C supplement that’s encapsulated in a liposomal coating.

So, what’s that?

A liposome is a phospholipid that mimics the cell membrane. Doctors use liposomes to quickly and easily provide different cells with important drugs and medications.

These drugs can pass through the cell wall without any resistance thanks to their liposome coating.

Liposomal Vitamin C takes that biotechnology and applies it to nutrition instead.

Liposomal Vitamin C supplements are one of the most bioavailable sources of Vitamin C on the market now, and studies seem to back this up.

That means you can now get the benefits of Vitamin C without consuming all of the excess calories and sugar that come from foods that are naturally rich in it.

And you do not have to waste your money on inefficient Vitamin C supplements that your body isn’t absorbing anyway.

Liposomal Vitamin C is the most efficient way to get the Vitamin C that your body needs.

How To Take Liposomal Vitamin C

If you’re ready to introduce Liposomal Vitamin C into your routine, here are some tips to get you started.

First, remember that Liposomal Vitamin C can be taken at any time of the day. So, really you can take it whenever makes the most sense for you.

This also helps make Liposomal Vitamin C easy to add into your routine.

Depending on the liposomal vitamin c you get, it can come in different forms. Whether it's a liquid, powder, or anything else ... take it with water, and take it consistently.

Remember that vitamin c is a water soluble vitamin and needs water to be absorbed in the body. So as long as you're taking the appropriate dose every day with water, you are in the clear.
