There is a reason that many people desire to maximize the absorption of vitamin C for general health or when battling a chronic disease.
The sad truth is, even the best liquid or capsule form of vitamin C is only absorbed at 19-22%.
Yes, you read that right.
Liposomal delivery allows you to have the best of both worlds – High absorption of vitamin C in the bloodstream without the expense of IV infusions. Plus you can determine how often and how much vitamin c you take without needing to set an appointment (not to mention – a needle stick) every time you get an infusion.
The liposome protects the vitamin C as it goes through the digestive tract so that it is intact as it enters the blood stream. In addition, because lecithin is fat and water soluble, it makes the vitamin C more amenable at a cellular level (more so than an IV).
Here is why this is important.
Dr. Linus Pauling showed that for all the various kinds of cancer that one can acquire, Vitamin C induces apoptosis. In other words, it kills cancer cells. It does this without inducing more pain or side effects, within weeks to months, and for a small fraction of the cost of chemotherapy.
He showed that some go into remission completely on Vitamin C injections alone, and that for other more severe and late-stage cases, either outright cure or lengthening of life and easing of pain are the rule rather than the exception.
When administered in a highly absorbable form, Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is preferentially toxic to cancer cells. Given in high enough doses to maintain plasma concentrations above levels that have been shown to be toxic to tumor cells in vitro,
Vitamin C has the ability to selectively kill cancer cells in a manner similar to other tumor cytotoxic chemotherapy drugs. Vitamin C does not exhibit toxicity to non-cancerous human cells, making it an attractive option in cancer therapy.
Vitamin C has also been shown to enhance the cytotoxicty (cancer killing effect) of several conventional chemotherapy drugs and reducing some of the many side effects of others when used as an adjunctive treatment.
In addition to these benefits, high dosage Vitamin C therapy has been shown to reduce fatigue, pain, nausea, appetite loss, depression and sleep issues often associated with cancer.
Liposomal delivery is a game-changer for those interested in maximizing absorption at a much lower cost per gram that IV infusions – with better results.
