Liposomal Vitamin C: Beyond Immune Support, this antioxidant does so much more!

Although many only think of vitamin C when sick with a cold or for illness prevention, the potential benefits and physiological importance go far beyond this. Vitamin C supports the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of the body, cholesterol metabolism, is a cofactor in numerous enzymatic reactions, and is necessary for the synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters.1

Vitamin C supports normal immune system function, possibly reducing incidence, duration, and severity of the common cold.* 2 Vitamin C also may impact allergies by reducing histamine levels.* 3 Vitamin C stimulates collagen synthesis, particularly that of Type I and III collagen which are found in bone, ligaments, tendon, skin, blood vessels, and the tissues which form our organs.* 4 Vitamin C supports the production of energy, and helps promote a balanced mood.* 5,6,7 As an antioxidant, vitamin C scavenges and neutralizes free radicals, and supports levels of vitamin E and glutathione.* 8,9

With oral dosing of conventional vitamin C, absorption decreases with increasing dosage due to gastrointestinal saturation.10 The liposomal delivery form offsets that loss and enables high-level dosing without intravenous therapy.* Lymphatic delivery via liposomes bypasses the first-pass metabolism of the liver, which increases oral bioavailability.11 Quicksilver Scientific uses Quali®-C, a premium vitamin C in the form of sodium ascorbate, in this liposomal format. Buffered forms of vitamin C such as this are generally better tolerated than regular ascorbic acid supplements by those with gastrointestinal sensitivity.*
