The Truth About Vitamin C That Hardly Anyone Knows

By Joseph Mercola, DO

As popular as vitamin C supplements may be, few people realize that they may only be absorbing a fifth or less of the oral vitamin C they're taking. The 80 percent or so of the unabsorbed supplement that stays behind in their colon may be the culprit behind vitamin C's occasional, yet frustrating side effects: upset stomach and other gastrointestinal distresses.

But there's a new kid on the block that's helping to change all that. Thanks to the newest liposomal technology, poor absorption and occasional intestinal discomfort are quickly becoming a thing of the past.*

When you want to take high doses of vitamin C, liposomal should be your number-one choice. Once in contact with water (in your body), phospholipid emulsifiers from the liposomal formulation coat the vitamin C molecules, creating "liposomes" that protect the vitamin C and help it cross over cell membranes with greater ease for enhanced absorption potential. Greater absorption often translates into reduced potential for gastrointestinal distress.*

My team and I spent over 18 months developing our criteria and selecting our formula to create my Liposomal Vitamin C. I wasn't willing to cut corners, the vitamin C had to be of the purest grade and highest quality, free of toxins and GMOs, and formulated using cutting-edge technology for optimal efficacy and bioavailability.*

With my Liposomal Vitamin C, you get enhanced bioavailability potential and protection against occasional intestinal discomfort.* More efficient absorption of vitamin C may help you avoid intravenous applications when higher dosages are needed.* All in all, Liposomal Vitamin C provides a more convenient and practical way to complement your diet.

For those who prefer to avoid soy, you'll be pleased to know that we use a sunflower lecithin emulsifier in our formula, so it's 100 percent soy-free.

Protecting the product before it even gets to you is important, too. We use high-quality, tightly-sealed "Licaps" capsules for my Liposomal Vitamin C instead of softgels or capliques. Innovative "Fusion Technology" hermetically seals the two-piece capsules without the use of banding, creating a "freshness bubble" inside. This precise method reduces the possibility for leakage to virtually zero while it guards against oxidation and spoilage.

Once you've discovered all the benefits that Liposomal Vitamin C offers, there's no going back to traditional oral vitamin C. Why put up with lower absorption and a greater potential for uncomfortable side effects when there's a better option?
