Lypo-Spheric Vitamn C
by LivOn Laboratories
WHAT IS IT?
1 foil pack (1 teaspoonful) of Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C contains :
|Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) ||1000 mg|
|Essential Phospholipids (EPL)||1000 mg|
Other ingredients are water, lecithin, alcohol 12%.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
According to the manufacturer:
"Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C has been called "Vitamin C on steroids!" This is because it utilizes state-of-the-art Liposomal Encapsulation Technology (LET). LET allows the nano-scopic spheres of Vitamin C to...
- quickly navigate through the digestive system
- eliminate need for digestive activity prior to assimilation
- rapidly absorb in the small intestine move intact, directly to the liver
- release the powerful, non-degraded Vitamin C for use throughout the body as the liposomal material is metabolized by the liver
- provide maximum assimilation and bio-availability because there are:
- NO binders
- NO fillers
- NO gelatins
- NO capsule materials
- NO dyes
- NO sweeteners, and
- NO flavorings common with tablet and capsule supplements
The Vitamin C and the encapsulating phopholipids are nothing but pure, health-promoting, 100% nutrition. In addition, "essential phospholipid" liposomes protect the Vitamin C from several factors that can degrade and even render Vitamin C ineffective.
Starting at the manufacturing stage, several additives and processes can limit the digestibility and bio-availability of Vitamin C. Often the product is buffered (to make it easier on the stomach), has binders and fillers added so it will stay together, and often times is cooked or esterified to extend shelf life.
While in the bottle, free-radicals in the air can oxidize your Vitamin C. The longer it sits, the more oxidized it becomes.
Then, the enzymes in your saliva, the digestive juices in your stomach, the bile salts in your intestines, and even the organisms in your G.I. tract can further degrade the Vitamin C before it ever gets absorbed in the small intestine.
Plus, if you take more than 2 to 3 grams of traditional Vitamin C, the ascorbic acid in the intestines can cause gastric distress -- gas, cramps, and diarrhea. Often Vitamin C will be eliminated via your very loose stool.
Smart Lyposomal Nano-Spheres avoid the degradation and discomfort associated with traditional forms of Vitamin C.
How Smart Lyposomal Nano-Spheres deliver more bio-available Vitamin C into your system...
First, each uni-dose of Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C is individually sealed in its own foil pack -- protected from the elements that could degrade the supplement before you use it.
Secondly, the sub-microscopic liposomes surrounding the Vitamin C are virtually impervious to degrading substances in your digestive system.
Thirdly, these Smart Lyposomal Nano-Spheres protect your lower G.I. Tract- hence, no gastric upset, no diarrheal flushing effect.
Lastly, the liposomes quickly journey to the liver where they are metabolized and release their precious, liquid contents. Researchers theorize that the liver is the perfect release destination since this is where Vitamin C would be synthesized if you still had that ability.
We believe that humans used to manufacture all the Vitamin C they needed. The fact is, we all have the necessary gene to produce a substance called L-gulonolactone oxidase (GLO). GLO is the only missing component in the human liver required to make Vitamin C. Unfortunately, almost all of us have a defect in that gene that prevents the production of GLO and therefore prevents the synthesis of Vitamin C.
Smart Lyposomal Nano-Spheres deliver the undegraded Vitamin C you need, in a form that is easily assimilated, right to the organ that was created to use or distribute this powerful nutrient throughout the cells in your body! "
Dr. Thomas Levy says that 5 gm of this product is therapeutically equivalent to 50 gm of IV vitamin C because it enters cells much more efficiently.
Do not use if pregnant or nursing without consulting a medical practitioner.
To provide maximum Vitamin C benefit to your health, simply S-Q-U-E-E-Z-E the contents of one foil packet into your favorite juice or other cool beverage. The gelatin-like liposomes disperse with a stir and add little or no taste to your drink.
