Pill-form Vitamin C versus
Liposomal Vitamin C
Just as water and oil do not mix there are challenges involved in bringing a water soluble nutrient, such as Vitamin C, into a fat soluble matrix like your cell membranes.
LipoC is surrounded by lipids just as the cells in our bodies are - it is therefore able to pass through the digestive barriers and deliver the vitamin directly to the bloodstream.
This has a much higher absorption rate (as much as a 30-fold increase in bioavailability) with over 90% of the cells receiving the Vitamin.
What are liposomes?
Liposomes are tiny spherical vesicles made up of one or more lipid bilayers. They have been shown to be beneficial for stabilising therapeutic compounds, overcoming obstacles to cellular and tissue uptake, and improving bio-distribution of compounds to target sites in vivo.
This enables effective delivery of encapsulated compounds directly through the cell wall.
