Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that has numerous actions in the human body, including being a very potent antioxidant, controlling cell division and regulating our immune response, but it is no use unless we can get it into our blood. Other forms of Vitamin C struggle to transfer from our stomach into our blood, but new technology means that Liposomal vitamin C is processed in a different way to enhance absorption.
The vitamin C in Radiance Liposomal Vitamin C is coated with phospholipids which are substances similar to cell membranes, these little spheres are called liposomes (also known as nanoparticles). Liposomal vitamin C is packaged like a bodily cell so it is protected as it passes through the digestive barrier and then is able to easily deliver the vitamin C directly to the bloodstream and the cells where it is needed.
This liposome technology means that it has a much higher absorption rate, with over 90% of vitamin C taken being delivered to the cells. Liposomal delivery is also shown to avoid the usual diarrhoea thresholds of ‘normal’ vitamin C, so you can take larger doses without discomfort.
Liposomal vitamin C also contributes the benefits of phosphatidylcholine, which has well documented actions including supporting brain function, memory, digestive and liver health.
