We all know how beneficial Vitamin C is to our health. However, our bodies have low tolerance to high doses of Vitamin C, and are prone to intestinal discomfort. Unless, it is taken in liposomal form.
A very much recommended alternative to Vitamin C IV drip or injections is the liposomal Vitamin C. It is taken orally, can be used on a daily basis, sometimes even a couple of times within the day, so it is much easier, low cost, and not to mention, risk-free, as compared to injections or IV.
What is liposomal Vitamin C?
Liposomal, comes from the root word, liposome, which means “lipid cell” in old Greek. Liposomal Vitamin C is absorbed in a very different way. They melt into the human cell since they have a membrane that is made up of the same phospholipids as the cell membrane. When they blend, the Vitamin C is directly transferred in to the cell. How it’s done is Vitamin C is coated in an oily shell.
Did you know that you can make your very own liposomal Vitamin C?
It is well known that it is being sold by different practitioners at varying costs, made by varying companies or individuals, and most of them are rather pricey. I’ll be glad to let you in on a recipe, but please take note that prior to doing this, it is important that you consult with a licensed Naturopath first.
What you’ll need:
1 tablespoon powdered Vitamin C
3 tablespoons non-GMO soy lecithin, or granular sunflower lecithin
1 cup water for the soy lecithin
1/2 cup water for the Vitamin C
- Pour the soy lecithin and water into the blender. Mix well. Pour into the ultrasonic cleaner.
- Stir the powdered vitamin C into the water, and pour into the ultrasonic cleaner as well.
- Turn the ultrasonic cleaner on for 6 to 12 minutes so that the soy lecithin encapsulates the vitamin C powder. Stir, and put in the fridge.
- Drink as prescribed by your Practitioner.
