More effective Vitamin C absorption to fortify your immune system
What are Liposomes?
Research studies show that vitamin C encapsulated in liposomes provides greater concentration of vitamin C than the ingestion of unencapsulated vitamin C. Liposomes are manufactured microscopic, hollow spherical vesicles composed of a lipid bilayer. When loaded with pharmaceuticals or dietary supplements, liposomes are an effective drug delivery method as they override the usual intestinal absorption pattern and facilitate the entry of vitamin C into metabolically active cells and tissues.
Liposomal vitamin C is shown to more effectively lessen oxidative stress induced by ischemia–reperfusion—tissue damage caused when blood supply returns to tissue after a period of ischemia or lack of oxygen—than unencapsulated vitamin C.
Why Choose Higher than RDA Dose of Vitamin C?
Vitamin C, especially at higher than RDA doses, provides numerous benefits due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, including reducing chronic diseases like heart disease; lowering blood pressure by improving integrity of blood vessels; and boosting iron absorption. High-dose vitamin C has been shown to improve memory by increasing blood flow and reduce severity and duration of viral diseases, including the common cold.
Large doses of Vitamin C also may improve your body’s immune system. Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant that can strengthen your body’s immune system by preventing oxidative stress, which interferes with the cells’ ability to detoxify free radicals, peroxides and heavy metals. Likewise, pre-surgery ingestion of encapsulated vitamin C may help alleviate oxidative stress-mediated damage and promote accelerated recovery.
Good Medicine Choice recommends taking this supplement on an empty stomach just prior to a meal for faster absorption.
