Vitamin C is the most used dietary supplement in the world, as it has a variety of benefits, which are more or less well known. However, what is not so well known is that a high dosage of this vitamin is not tolerated well and thereby can cause significant intestinal and abdominal discomfort, such as for instance diarrhea. This will not be the case, however, if high-dose vitamin C is taken in the liposomal form. The so-called liposomal vitamin C is an excellent alternative to intravenous drips (or IVs) and even injections, as it is usually taken orally and can be used daily, and even a couple of times per day. Liposomal technology represents a huge advance in this area.
What Are Liposomes?
These are artificially-prepared, minuscule bubbles or balls of fat, as wide as a single strand of hair and they must remain stable and well-formed, or they could lose their basic function. They are most usually used for those nutrients and molecules which are very hard to take in. Their way of being absorbed by the body is distinctive, in the way that they undergo absorption by literally melting into the human cell, considering that their outer membrane is made of the same matter as that of the human cell. Thus, the contents of the two balls will merge together and help deliver the nutrient existing in the liposome directly into the cell. In this way, the layer of fat of the liposome safeguards the vitamin from directly coming into interaction with the stomach as well as the intestines. As a result, the negative intestinal effects of absorbing vitamin C (or ascorbic acid) are avoided. Therefore, considering that some people have a hardship tolerating this nutrient, liposomes have been designed to diminish discomfort. What is the recommended daily dosage for liposomal C vitamin? It is usually 1,000 milligrams, though physicians can possibly prescribe more than this amount.
Furthermore, anyone, even someone just purchasing liposomes, can assess their quality. As they are entirely circular microscopic particles of fat floating in water, any kind of light will be reflected by the particles and will turn the water into a white and milky substance. On the other hand, if the water becomes clear once again after a couple of days, this means that the C vitamin liposomes were badly formed, or on the other hand, created a sort of fat blob as a result of their joining together.
How You Can Make Your Own Liposomal C Vitamin?
The absorption of regular C vitamin is at roughly 19 percent, with the balance remaining within the intestinal tract, which as a result, attracts water as well as loosening the bowels. However, the absorption of liposomal vitamin C is a phenomenal 93 percent, quantifiable within the blood – this being an increase in the absorption of 390 percent!
This is how you can make it on your own:
- Heat a beaker of purified water in a stainless steel pot on the stove (not a microwave) until it is nearly boiling.
- Empty the water into the blender, adding 3 tablespoons of lecithin, then mix together till the lecithin completely melts away.
- In one beaker of cold purified water, melt a tablespoon of ascorbic acid and ensure that it is completely dissolved.Blend well after you have added the mixture of ascorbic acid to the lecithin.
- Transfer the mix into an ultrasonic cleaner, then switch it on, all the while stirring.
- The cleaner should switch itself off every 2 minutes. Carry on stirring and switch the cleaner on again till the foam has totally vanished – which should take half an hour. When the blend is a milky color, pour it into a glass container and put it away in the fridge. Take a teaspoon a day on an empty stomach.
