1. Why Should You Take Vitamin C Supplements?

Vitamin C is one essential dietary nutrient, and we have made it even better with liposomal technology. Vitamin C is a powerful bioactive compound that comes with minimal potential side effect risks. 

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, should be a top consideration for your supplementation routine. This critical nutrient is involved in so many different physiological processes inside the human body. You do not want to be deficient in vitamin C.

We have known the importance of vitamin C for centuries, since long before we knew the chemical structure of—or even named—this critical vitamin. It was vitamin C deficiency that became a considerable obstacle to surviving seafaring. Luckily, the sailors and pirates of the oceans discovered the importance of bringing some citrus on their voyages. 

Vitamin C is a powerful bioactive compound that comes with minimal potential side effect risks.

1.1 The Emergence of Scurvy

We now know that vitamin C deficiency causes scurvy. Back then, people just noticed that eating citrus fruits stopped this deadly disease. Scurvy causes connective tissue damage and blood vessel fragility. It is the inability to produce collagen that causes this critical breakdown. This condition leads to the total collapse of body systems rather quickly, and then death. [1] 

Preventing scurvy is a fantastic starting point for discussing why vitamin C supplements are so important. If you eat a balanced diet, you shouldn’t ever have to worry about scurvy, but supplementation is great for those days and weeks where you miss out on citrus fruits. 

Preventing scurvy is a fantastic starting point for discussing why vitamin C supplements are so important.

1.2 What Is Vitamin C Good for?

Vitamin C should be consumed for plenty of reasons beyond preventing scurvy. For example, there is some evidence that vitamin C is involved in the prevention of cancer. More evidence supports the role of vitamin C in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. [1]

Ascorbic acid can also help counteract inflammation and prevent oxidative damage. Both of these processes are involved in the initiation and progression of numerous acute and chronic diseases. Overall, vitamin C is an easy and practical tool to help us provide early prevention of multiple pathologies. [1] 

Our bodies use this vitamin every day, meaning that we need to consume more to refill our supply. Consistent daily consumption of vitamin C is required because we cannot store this water-soluble nutrient. 

Vitamin C is an easy and practical tool to help us provide early prevention of multiple pathologies.

The immune cells working to keep us healthy require vitamin C to do their job. Without vitamin C, our immune systems cannot function optimally. In other words, if you want to get healthy or stay healthy, you need enough vitamin C in your daily life. 

But here’s the kicker:

Not having enough vitamin C in your blood is known to increase the risk of all-cause mortality (basically, the chances of dying from any cause). Low vitamin C is also associated with strokes and cataracts. [2] [3]

On the flip side, having more vitamin C in your blood is associated with better blood cholesterol levels (more HDL and less LDL). Moreover, blood pressure and cardiovascular health are also affected by vitamin C levels. [2] [3]

Having more vitamin C in your blood is associated with better blood cholesterol levels.

Basically, there are no good reasons not to supplement with vitamin C. Vitamin C has many health benefits and clinical applications. It is an essential dietary nutrient that you can easily consume every day with our liposomal vitamins. Vitamin C is an integral part of a healthy diet as well as in the pursuit of preventing and managing numerous chronic diseases. 

In summary, here are the top reasons you should consume vitamin C: [4]

  • To prevent scurvy 
  • To support immune system health and functioning
  • To replace the daily turnover of vitamin C in your blood
  • To provide optimal levels of vitamin C for health and wellness 

What are the benefits of supplementing with Vitamin C?

Now that we understand why you need a consistent supply of vitamin C, what are the benefits of consuming this nutrient? 

2. The Benefits of Vitamin C

One of the primary jobs of vitamin C is helping our bodies synthesize collagen. This biosynthesis of collagen requires vitamin C—without sufficient levels, the process stops. When this happens, what you get is scurvy. And if the scurvy persists, you will die. So, we can say that one benefit of vitamin C is staying alive. 

Beyond collagen production, ascorbic acid is also critically involved in the production of: [1]

  • Catecholamines
  • L-carnitine
  • Cholesterol (the essential stuff your cardiovascular system needs—not the bad stuff)
  • Amino acids (the building blocks of proteins inside our body)
  • Some peptide hormones

Without going into the boring details behind these compounds, why are they important? The various compounds listed above, including collagen, are needed all over our bodies. Here are just a few examples of what vitamin C does to keep us healthy. [3] [4] 

  • Maintaining healthy teeth and gums
  • Stimulation of specific enzymes
  • Supporting adrenal gland functioning
  • Supporting immune responses (helping immune cells called leukocytes fend off threats)
  • Managing tissue growth and repair 
  • Hormonal activation (adrenal gland and other organs) 
  • Detoxification of histamine (inflammatory compound associated with allergies)
  • Blood pressure management 

So, now that we know how vital vitamin C is, how much do we need to take? 

What Vitamin C Does to Keep Us Healthy:

3. How Much Vitamin C Should You Take Each Day?

Guidelines around vitamin C supplementation vary widely. These dietary recommendations can be confusing at times due to this variety. There are several key factors around dosage you should consider. First, what is the purpose of your vitamin C supplementation? Another question is whether you have any medical condition or special health status. The final question is about the quality of your supplement. [4] 

Here’s the deal:

Depending on your situation and the reason you are taking vitamin C, your daily dose goals can change. For example, it takes less vitamin C to prevent scurvy—about 90 mg minimum—than to support optimal immune system functioning. Keep your reasons for taking vitamin C in mind while you find your optimal dosage. [5]

Keep your reasons for taking vitamin C in mind while you find your optimal dosage.

3.1 Can You Take Too Much Vitamin C?

According to the World Health Organization and numerous national authorities, a good middle-ground vitamin C dose is 40–45 mg/day. At this level, you should be halfway between getting scurvy and complete tissue saturation. You can adjust your number up or down depending on your diet and supplementation goals. [4]

On the flip side, you can indeed take too much vitamin C, but it’s not an issue about which you should worry. Overall, vitamin C has a beautiful safety profile. Any excess amounts of it can simply be cleared via your urine quickly. Safety suggestions for upper limits of vitamin C are in the 2,000 mg/day range. At these levels with traditional vitamin C supplements, side effects include diarrhea and gastrointestinal problems. [4][5]

However, with liposomal vitamin C, our bodies can absorb so much more without gastrointestinal comfort that you can get the optimal high dose and maximum antioxidant benefits with no worry. The ideal routine would be to take a dose of liposomal vitamin C daily (twice a day if you're feeling sick or need an extra immune boost) for consistency and to maintain optimum levels. [5]

Vitamin C has a beautiful safety profile.

You might be wondering:

There are certain situations that may require larger doses, and those include pregnancy, lactation, sickness, obesity, and smoking. If you fall under these categories, be sure to ask your medical doctor. Always follow professional medical guidance on what vitamin C dosage is right for you. [4] 

3.2 Quality Matters

One critical consideration when it comes to dosing is the quality of your supplement. There is a vast difference in quality between various nutrients on the market. It does not matter how many milligrams of vitamin C are in your supplement—it matters how many milligrams of vitamin C are absorbed by your body. 

Our bodies can only absorb about 250mg of vitamin C at a time with regular supplements, so consuming more than that at once is largely pointless. However, this is where liposomal technology has helped change the whole game, allowing you to absorb more vitamin C in just one dose. [5]

With these fantastic liposomal supplements, you can be sure the dose you consume is the dose you get.

With these fantastic liposomal supplements, you can be sure the dose you consume is the dose you get. In other words, you can take a smaller quantity each day while knowing that it is being put to good use. Contrast this with a cheap supplement that contains plenty of vitamin C—you may consume lots of vitamin C, but it may just go straight through you. 

With our liposomal vitamin C, we suggest 1 tsp. as a starting point for your daily dosage. This number may vary from the guidelines above—and there is an excellent reason for this variation. Our liposomal vitamin C is just better than your standard old vitamin C. Keep reading to learn more about why this is the case and how it impacts the dosage you need. 

4. Why Liposomal Vitamin C is Better

Liposomal technology helped us create the most advanced nutrient delivery system possible. The state-of-the-art liposomal process produces nutrients with the highest bioavailability possible.

Liposomal technology helped create the most advanced nutrient delivery system possible.

What is bioavailability?

It is a measure of how well a nutrient is absorbed and used after we consume it. A compound with low bioavailability is more likely to pass straight through you and exit via your urine. On the other hand, high bioavailability means a higher percentage of the nutrients you consume reach their intended target. 

These vitamin C compounds need to be absorbed and transported to where they can actually do their work. If the compounds never make it to their worksite, they won’t get any work done. 

Increased bioavailability means that your supplement is more efficient, and ultimately, more effective. With the best absorption possible, every molecule of vitamin C you consume gets to where it needs to go. 

Here's what this study says about Vitamin C absorption

In order to understand Vitamin C bioavailability...
Starting in 2021, a team at the Department of Health and Exercise Science at Colorado State University, has been comparing Vitamin C concentrations in the blood after swallowing a “normal” Vitamin C powder and after ingestion of Liposomal Vitamin C made using our formulation and our liposome manufacturing technology. You can see the results in the graph below.

Increased bioavailability means that your supplement is more efficient and ultimately more effective.


“THE DATA FROM OUR CLINICAL TRIALS SHOWED THAT LIPOSOMAL DELIVERY SUPPORTS THE ABSORPTION OF NUTRITION, SUCH AS VITAMIN C, AND HAS EXCELLENT EFFICACY.” -Dr. Emek Blair

You may be wondering—how does liposomal technology increase bioavailability? 

Our liposomal process has not just produced better bioavailability, but it has also led to the best bioavailability on the market. The liposomal technology is backed up by scientific and clinical evidence. It all comes down to the liposomes.

Liposomes can be thought of as tiny bubbles that encase and protect individual vitamin C compounds. Our liposomal process wraps each vitamin C in these beautiful tiny shells. The actual procedure is complicated, but you just need to remember the result.

Once converted into liposomal vitamin C, this nutrient is ready to be consumed and absorbed. The liposomes provide several key benefits that all lead to the best bioavailability on the market—17x better than your average supplement, in fact. 

Liposomes can be thought of as tiny bubbles that encase and protect individual vitamin C compounds.

4.1 Increased Solubility

Surrounding each molecule of vitamin C in a liposome leads to better solubility. In other words, the liposomes mix more readily with water and dissolve more easily. Although vitamin C is water-soluble, these liposomes enhance this feature. The reason behind this is the surface area: the more surface area, the better the solubility.

4.2 Increased Protection

You can think of these liposomes as little shields. They serve to protect nutrients as they pass through our digestive system. Our stomach acid can degrade standard vitamins before passing through. We need these nutrients to survive our stomach acids because absorption occurs primarily in the intestines. 

These liposomes help guard and protect the vitamin C compounds as they make it through to your intestines. Once there, these nutrients can be absorbed into the bloodstream to travel to their intended targets.

These liposomes help guard and protect the vitamin C compounds as they make it through to your intestines.

The combination of better protection and enhanced solubility means more vitamin C compounds reach this stage. Once inside your intestines, the critical absorption process begins. And the liposomes make sure this process runs smoothly.

4.3 Increased Absorption

So, liposomal technology enhances the absorption of vitamins in our intestines. It does this by increasing the surface area available to contact your intestine lining. Furthermore, the liposomes disperse widely along your intestines, creating even more chances for absorption. This means that more vitamin C compounds reach your intestinal wall and travel through to your bloodstream. 

Another way of thinking about this is the following. You pay for those vitamin C molecules, and you want them to work. Without good absorption, you are wasting your time and money. And so, our liposomal vitamin C ensures that you get what you paid for—by offering the best absorption on the market.

Our liposomal vitamin C ensures that you get what you paid for—by offering the best absorption on the market.
