Liposomal Vitamin C by Quicksilver Scientific
Liposomal vitamin C is a highly-bioavailable form of vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), a powerful water-soluble nutrient with pleiotropic functions.
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that readily donates electrons to electron-deficient free radicals and inhibits radical-induced oxidative damage to lipids, proteins, and DNA. Vitamin C supports connective tissue health by serving as a cofactor for enzymes that synthesize collagen. It plays vital roles in the immune system, enhancing the production and function of white blood cells and quenching excessive inflammation caused by infection. Emerging research suggests that vitamin C may also support cognitive function, regulate gene expression, and protect cardiovascular health by inhibiting oxidative damage to the vascular endothelium.
Vitamin C deficiency is the fourth most prevalent nutrient deficiency in the United States. While abundant in fruits and vegetables, vitamin C is rapidly degraded upon harvesting, meaning even the best of eaters may have an insufficient intake. Supplemental vitamin C complements a healthy diet, helping your patients realize the spectrum of health benefits of this nutrient.
Oral vitamin C also has stringent pharmacokinetics, limiting its absorption in the gut. Liposomal technology enables high-level dosing of vitamin C by bypassing these absorption constraints. Furthermore, our liposomal vitamin C utilizes Quali-C®, a buffered form of vitamin C that is less likely to cause GI upset.
