Liposomal Vitamin C

The most interesting calls from our Natural Healing Tools customers are when you share way more knowledge with us than we can ever imagine! 

A recent call from a gentleman with diabetes lead to an interesting conversation about Liposomal Vitamin C. 

Vitamin C is no real mystery. 
  1. Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that is necessary for normal growth and development. Water-soluble vitamins dissolve in water. Leftover amounts of the vitamin leave the body through the urine. That means you need a continuous supply of such vitamins in your diet.
Humans are one of few mammals to not produce Vitamin C in our body but we get it from diet or by supplementation. If you are lucky enough to be in an area that you can grow citrus (like Phoenix - where delicious grapefruits grow seemingly in everyone's front yard), Vitamin C is naturally available by diet. 

Vitamin C has been well documented to reduce colds, anti-aging properties, heart health and burn relief.

From the research we've done so far, the Liposomal Vitamin C is an encapsulated version of the supplement. This causes more of the actual Vitamin C to be absorbed by the blood stream to become available to the body. 

We found various recipes to make your own Liposomal Vitamin C. We are reading our way through Quality Liposomal Vitamin C  website. We are also seeking a high quality, Liposomal Vitamin C product. 

All this said, we are not doctors, nor have any statements we've seen been approved by the FDA. We try products and recipes at our own risk.
