Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that combats free-radical damage, powers the adrenal glands, regenerates tissues, and promotes a healthy circulatory system. It you have cancer, it’s a great supplement to support the immune system. In this post, I’ll teach you how to make liposomal vitamin C in your own kitchen using this superior delivery method, which is far more effective than taking ascorbic acid.
Interestingly, humans are one of the few mammals whose bodies can’t produce vitamin C. This critical nutrient must be obtained either from food or supplementation, and since vitamin C is water-soluble, the body needs a constant supply of it because it can’t be stored like fat-soluble vitamins.
Liposomal Vitamin C Benefits
Liposomal technology was developed by the pharmaceutical industry to allow prescription drugs to pass through stomach acid intact. After passing through the stomach, medications go into the bloodstream, and then directly through the cell membrane into the cell.
This is possible because the structure of a liposome, basically a bubble of fat, is made of the same components as a cell wall. This similarity in structure allows nutrients or medications to essentially slide through the cell membrane, guaranteeing that the patient receives the full dose of the prescribed medication.
And because it’s water-soluble, it can easily be destroyed by stomach acid when taken orally. The absorption rate in the bloodstream is only about 20 percent, with the remaining 80 percent concentrating in the colon. This is why high-dose vitamin C causes diarrhea.
Because cell membranes are made of fat, and vitamin C is water-soluble, getting it into the cell is not an efficient process. The liposomal delivery method, however not only protects the vitamin C molecule while passing through the stomach, but also allows it to effectively slip through the cell membrane where it can exert its effect on the cell.
Liposomal Encapsulation Delivery Method
Not only does the liposomal encapsulation delivery method enable high doses of vitamin C to be taken, the absorption rate is also significantly better. It rivals intravenous vitamin C therapy, with some experts saying it is even more effective. IV vitamin C drips can be prohibitive, they’re expensive, have to be performed by a doctor or nurse, and are time-consuming since they have to be administered very slowly to protect the veins.
IV vitamin C acts as a pro-oxidant that produces hydrogen peroxide, which is effective at targeting cancer cells. Unlike chemotherapy, it doesn’t harm normal cells, making it a powerful alternative cancer therapy. On the other hand, liposomal oral vitamin C is a potent antioxidant and electron donor, helping to reduce the oxidative stress caused by infections and free radicals.
This is significant because most illnesses are caused by oxidative stress, underscoring the importance of vitamin C. It’s also crucial to prevent and eradicate infections, particularly viruses. Used in conjunction with ozone, the two are a dynamic prescription against disease.
Vitamin C is vital for a robust immune system and healthy adrenal function. In fact, the adrenal glands hold the highest concentration of vitamin C in the body, which is essential to produce adrenal hormones, such as cortisol. Too much cortisol is released if the concentration of vitamin C is low in the adrenals, initiating a cascade of negative effects.
Liposomal Vitamin C Recipe
1. 3 Tablespoons sunflower lecithin powder dissolved in 1 cup of just-below boiling filtered water.
2. 2 Tablespoons Rosehip powder dissolved in 1/2 cup of just-below boiling filtered water.
(I buy whole or seedless cut and sifted rosehips and grind into a powder in my blender).
Rosehips are the fruit of rose plants that form late in the season after the roses have been pollinated. They are extremely nutrient-dense.
3. Blend the two solutions together in a blender for a few seconds.
4. Pour the solution in an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner for 20 minutes, stirring often.
Ultrasonic technology uses high-frequency sound waves to make the mixture liposomal.
5. Pour into a glass jar and refrigerate.
I typically mix the lecithin and Rosehip powders in water at night, and leave them both in the fridge until the next day. Then I’ll blend them together before putting in the jewelry cleaner.
The dosage is two tablespoons, or one ounce, per day. The best time to take liposomal Vitamin C is in the morning on an empty stomach. Take several times throughout the day if you are treating an acute condition. If you are anemic, take with meals to aid in iron absorption.
Is It Worth Taking The Time To Make Liposomal Vitamin C?
For me it’s worth the small amount of time it takes to make liposomal vitamin C. I notice a difference in my energy levels, it helps prevent colds and flus, and helps me fall asleep at night and stay asleep. Vitamin C is amazing at reducing histamine if you have allergies.
If that weren’t enough, it’s also a fantastic vitamin for skin health because it promotes the production of collagen. I take more when I’m under stress, am anxious, or have eaten poorly, which causes my body to metabolize it more rapidly. I know it has definitely improved my adrenal function.
Liposomal C is easy to make, cost-effective, tastes good, and lasts longer than an IV drip. You get more bang for your buck because of the liposomal delivery method. Once you have the ingredients and jewelry cleaner, you can whip up a batch in no time, and it will last you a couple of weeks.
Vitamin C is a vital nutrient, and one that can’t be made in the body. Supplementing with it in liposomal form is a great way to ingest high amounts.
Certain populations need higher amounts of vitamin C, including the elderly, people who smoke, those who reside in highly-polluted areas, and athletes.
The liver requires vitamin C to process medications like aspirin, Tylenol, and prescription medications. If you’re taking any of these on a regular basis, it’s imperative to support your liver with vitamin C. In my opinion, everyone should be supplementing daily with this antioxidant because of the enormous amounts of stress we’re all under.
