Liposomal vitamin C for maximum availability
What is Vitamin C?
Vitamin C (also ascorbic acid) is synthesized from D-glucose by higher plants and animals. However, primates (humans, great apes), guinea pigs, elephants and some bird species are not capable of ascorbic acid synthesis because they lack an important enzyme (L-gulonolactone oxidase). In mammals, ascorbic acid is produced in the liver, birds, reptiles and amphibians in the kidney.
Vitamin C has a highly reducing effect and is therefore an effective radical scavengers as an antioxidant, but is very sensitive to atmospheric oxygen and heating. As a coenzyme, it has a key position in the biosynthesis of collagen, therefore the symptoms of scurvy (vitamin C deficiency) consist in disorders of collagen metabolism (cracked skin, tendency to bleeding, changes in bone structure, tooth loss).
Ascorbic acid exerts a protective effect on many vitamins, it promotes iron absorption in the small intestine and is involved in many dioxygenase (e.g. collagen synthesis) and hydroxylation reactions (e.g. formation of glucocorticoids in the adrenal cortex). It strengthens the immune system against bacterial and viral infections by boosting the production of antibodies and the body’s own interferon synthesis (interferons are glycoproteins that have cytostatic properties and provide the body’s own cells with protection against viruses) and influences the function of lymphocytes.
What are liposomal products?
In the case of conventional dietary supplements, the question of efficiency keeps popping up: How do I know that the active ingredient really arrives where it should go? For example, if we want to absorb a lot of a particular substance, the absorption rate deteriorates significantly with the increase in the dose.
If active ingredients are absorbed without protection (e.g. without capsules), the intake is equivalent to a skewer run. The active ingredients are broken down by enzymes in the mouth, corroded by stomach acid and only occasionally get to where we want them to be.
For a long time, intravenous administration was the only way to get active ingredients into the human bloodstream at a high rate. Nowadays, however, there is the possibility to include active ingredients in so-called liposomes. The small marvels form a membrane shell of double lipids around the active ingredient and can thus effectively protect it.
The membrane shell of the lipoma is similar to that of human cells, allowing it to pass through the mouth, stomach and intestines undamaged and then interact excellently with human cells.
This is what liposomal dietary supplements offer:
- No destruction through digestion
- Are up to 30x better received
- Free of additives
