I have digested the blob of Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C for a few years now, but this is a rather expensive habit. I have read somewhere that the Liposomal Vitamin C capsule has the same effect for a more affordable rate. The capsule creators have created a way for this stuff to be absorbed into your system like the liquid form does. I will spare you the scientific details. For me it’s wallet over matter right now.
Why take Vitamin C in Lypo-Spheric form? Regular Vitamin C can be destroyed in the digestive system and be flushed out before it will work its magic. Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C has more than 50% absorption in your blood cells than Vitamin C powder or pills. Therefore it has a better chance to work its magic.
Why not just eat your vitamin C? Vitamin C is water soluble so your body can’t store what is left behind. One orange has about 100 mg of Vitamin C which is about 130% of the recommended daily intake. Red bell peppers have oranges beat, they contain triple the amount of Vitamin C. But without boring you with all scientific facts….cause trust me *yawn*….I read up on this…Long story short: you will excrete most of the vitamin C when you consume it regularly. This does not mean that you should stop eating your fruits and veggies!
So if your daily recommended dose of Vitamin C is 65 to 90 milligrams a day then is 1500 mg of the Liposomal stuff too much for your system to handle? The answer is that you should not take in more than 2000 mg a day. Even with a dose like this, you may experience stomach issues and heartburn. I am prone to the latter but seem to be ok taking a 1500 mg dose daily. Fun fact; you will have to eat about 11,000 oranges before it becomes life threatening. You cannot “OD” on vitamin C apparently, in it’s “natural” form. Any excess you will simply pee out. Please don’t try this at home!
Last but not least I would like to stress the fact that vitamin C is a nutrient that helps boosts the natural production of collagen. That’s the stuff that keeps our skin from sagging. Jussss saying!
