Everything you need to know about liposomal vitamin C

You’re sure to know about the benefits and importance of vitamin C for your health. Apart from boosting the immune system, there are a number of different bodily functions for which vitamin C is essential for.  

However, not many people are familiar with liposomal vitamin C and how it differs from traditional vitamin C supplements. So what exactly is liposomal vitamin C and what are the benefits?

Why do we need vitamin C?


Also known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C is essential for a number of different functions within the body, including:

  • Assisting with the production of collagen and the amino acid, L-carnitine
  • Helping with the absorption of iron
  • Maintaining a well-functioning immune system
  • Reducing free radical damage to cells

If you’re wondering how much vitamin C you need each day, the NHS recommends that adults ensure they’re getting a minimum of 40 mg each day, which is equivalent to around 50 grams of broccoli, or just 28 grams of red pepper.

As vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, it cannot be stored in the body, so it’s important to ensure you’re including food sources or taking a high-quality vitamin C supplement each day to meet the requirements.

What is liposomal vitamin C?

When it comes to liposomal vitamin C, that’s where things start to get a little bit scientific.

Put simply, liposomal vitamin C is vitamin C which is contained within a liposome – a spherical vesicle containing fats (or lipids, hence the name).

Liposomes mimic the cell membranes within the body, which is what helps to deliver the ingredients into the desired cells via the digestive system. Essentially, liposomes are a trojan horse for the delivery of vitamins!

Liposomal vitamin C benefits

Now we’ve discussed a little bit about what liposomal vitamin C is, you might be wondering why it’s more beneficial than regular vitamin C supplements.

When encased in a liposome, vitamin C has been scientifically proven to deliver more of the vitamin into the body compared to traditional vitamin C supplements, which means you can reap more of the health benefits we mentioned earlier.

This is because liposomal vitamin C is more bioavailable than other supplementation methods. As vitamin C is water-soluble, it has very poor bioavailability, as a lot of it oxidises before it reaches the cells. 

If you’re looking for an effective supplementation method, then liposomal vitamin C, which can be found in our Raw Vitamin C & D3 shots, should certainly be your first choice.
