What is Liposomal Vitamin C?

What is Liposomal Vitamin C?


By Nutritionist Beatrice


Vitamin C or ascorbic acid is a water soluble, non-enzymatic antioxidant in plasma and tissues. It must be taken daily through food or supplements as the body does not store it. Absorption of vitamin C decreases to less than 50% when taking amounts greater than 1000 mg and excessive vitamin C intake can cause burden to our body or side effects. 

Liposome is an efficient carrier system with a membrane composed of a phospholipid bilayer used to deliver an aqueous component like dissolved vitamin C into a cell.  Liposomal Vitamin C can “fuse” with cells upon contact in the gut, thereby allowing vitamin C to be absorbed more quickly and effectively. Clinical study indicates oral delivery of liposomal vitamin C is 1.77 times more bioavailable than the non-liposomal vitamin C. Liposome also protects Vitamin C from stomach acid and oxidisers. 




  • Consists of natural Vitamin C (extracted from plant), phospholipid (derived from sunflower lecithin), rice bran fatty acid and citrus bioflavonoid
  • Delivers maximum bio-efficacy using the most advanced liposomal encapsulation technology
  • True liposome backed by third party lab TEM (Trans Electron Microscopy) Imaging ensures greater absorption, compared to other liposomal products on the market that are less uniform 
  • Make more readily available for use in the body; low dosage needed and less wastage
  • All-NATURAL product that is free of allergens.
  • Non-acidic, gentle to stomach
  • Provides continuous 24-hour coverage of vitamin C; give extra immune support & other beneficial effects like faster in wound healing and faster stimulating healthy neurons.
  • No adverse effect as recommended dosage is lower. Too much vitamin C consumption (>1000mg) may cause digestive problems, such as stomach upset or nausea.
