What does Liposomal Vitamin C mean?

Liposomal vitamin C is a vitamin C that is enclosed by a shell. The special shell is called a liposome. The aim of the formulation is to improve the bioavailability of vitamin C. The bioavailability describes how much and how long the active ingredient (vitamin C) gets into the bloodstream.

What are liposomes?

Liposomes are a very special formulation for medicines and dietary supplements. Each product in this category has a very special active ingredient that can be taken in tablet, powder or liquid form. The problem with the conventional, i.e. regular, formulations is that a large part of the active ingredients are often lost on the way through the body. This usually happens when passing through the stomach area, as the stomach acid breaks down some of the active ingredients before they take effect. This means that only a small part of the active ingredient can be used in the intestine.

However, the situation is different with liposomal products. Because liposomes are small bubbles that have a double-walled shell or membrane. Through this membrane, for example, a wide variety of active ingredients can be transported in a protected manner without large losses of the active ingredients occurring. A large part of the important ingredients can thus be transported into the body where they are ultimately needed. [1]

The membrane of a liposome also consists of a fat-soluble and an aqueous layer. For this reason, different active ingredients can be effectively enclosed in this membrane and transported further. [2] The membrane only dissolves once it has passed through the stomach acid.

Liposome absorbs ingredient. protection and transportation. Release of the ingredients into the cell.

Why does my body need vitamin C?

Vitamin C, the so-called ascorbic acid, is an organic acid that is essential for the human body to survive . It is one of the essential substances, which means that the organism cannot produce it in sufficient quantities and must therefore be supplied through food. It is a water-soluble vitamin found mainly in fruits and vegetables. For example, the acerola cherry, the sea buckthorn berry and kale have a particularly high content.

Vitamin C is a radical scavenger and helps protect cells from oxidative stress. It therefore protects cells from aggressive and reactive molecules, the so-called free radicals. Especially in situations where the body is under stress, the body uses considerably more vitamin C due to the onset of the immune response .

The vitamin plays an important role in a large number of biological processes and processes in the body, with the development and maintenance of a normal immune system being particularly noteworthy. In addition, it contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin, teeth, gums, psyche, blood vessels, bones, cartilage and normal energy metabolism . [3]

As already mentioned, ascorbic acid is found in varying amounts in almost every type of fruit and vegetable, but it is very delicate and is easily destroyed by food storage or preparation. Therefore, supporting a normal immune system by taking up to 1,000 mg of vitamin C, especially in the cool season or in particularly stressful situations, can have an impact on health and well-being.

What is the difference between liposomal vitamin C and conventional vitamin C?

Liposomes are small bubbles made of fat that also occur naturally in the body and enclose sensitive substances and thus protect them from external influences during transport. They are also used in pharmacy to encapsulate certain active ingredients so that they can safely reach their site of action in the body. [4]

Since vitamin C is particularly sensitive and can be destroyed very easily, a protective shell made of liposomes helps the vitamin to get safely through the stomach into the intestines. Here it can eventually be absorbed by the body. Another advantage of the liposomal formulation is the sustained-release effect, which ensures that the vitamin is released over a longer period of time. [5] This ensures that the vitamin can be absorbed by the body and its positive properties can develop.

What is the benefit for your body?

Better absorption by the body

Thanks to their size in the nanometer range and their fatty composition (lecithin microdroplets), the liposomes protect vitamin C from enzymatic degradation (saliva, gastric acid, etc.) and release it directly into the bloodstream, which significantly increases the absorption rate of vitamin C. [1]

Gradual distribution of vitamin C

The liposomal encapsulation has the advantage that the vitamin C enters the cells slowly and continuously. The blood concentration of vitamin C in liposomal form therefore decreases less rapidly over time than conventional vitamin C. [5]
