Most ordinary forms of oral vitamin C supplements – tablets, capsules, powders, and liquids are not digested and absorbed as efficiently as they could be by your body. As a result, much of this vitamin C is never absorbed into your bloodstream and even less of it makes it into your cells where it’s needed most. In fact, when you take 1,000 mg or more of regular oral vitamin C supplements, more than half of it isn’t absorbed from the digestive tract.
What does liposomal mean?
LivOn Lab’s patented Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C encapsulates the vitamin C molecules in liposomes made from essential phospholipids. Within minutes of taking Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C, liposomes filled with vitamin C are transported directly into the lymphatic system where they give up a lot of the vitamin to the white blood cells [macrophages, phagocytes and natural killer cells] in the lymph nodes where those cells are developing and maturing. By loading them on vitamin C, they are better prepared to be in “top shape” to fight bacteria, viruses, pathogens, toxins and cancer cells. [This is what white blood cells do].
The liposomes then enter the bloodstream carrying the rest of the vitamin C to various cells, tissues and organs throughout the body. The liposome structure allows the vitamin C to easily slip pass the cell membrane and into the cell in a way regular vitamin C can’t. Because the liposomes are absorbed like fat with much greater efficiency, you’ll absorb infinitely more vitamin C.
LivOn Laboratories was the first company to utilize a highly sophisticated technology which originated in the pharmaceutical industry. With LivOn’s Lypo-Spheric™ products, your body receives essential phospholipids as well as an important nutritional supplement …delivering a powerful “1-2 punch”.
The phospholipids provide a source of choline which many are lacking in their diet. Choline is needed to make the neurotransmitter acetylcholine which helps with learning and consolidating memories. Choline also helps to reduce fatty liver formation.
Liposomal vitamin C delivers up to 200% more vitamin C than oral vitamin C!
This liposome encapsulated form of vitamin C is the first choice of people who really understand bioavailability and the importance of high-dose vitamin C. Other forms of vitamin C succumb to absorption barrier issues that vastly limit the level of vitamin C that can enter the bloodstream.

This is how to use liposomal vitamin C
As a dietary supplement take one packet 1 to 2 times per day, or as directed by a health care practitioner. For best results, snip or tear the notched end off the packet, squeeze into one or more ounces of your favorite cool beverage, swirl and shoot it back!. It will enter the blood stream faster if you take it on an empty stomach and wait at least 15 minutes before eating. It will be absorbed however, it taken with food or after a meal as well, just more slowly.
We do not recommend mixing any of the products in hot beverages, because this could damage the liposomes. We also do not recommend blending any of our products in a food processor or blender.
