What is the difference between regular Vitamin C and Liposomal Vitamin C?
Liposomal Vitamin C is significantly more bioavailable (up to 90%) in the body, meaning it has a higher absorption rate than traditional forms of Vitamin C capsules, tablets, or pills, which have a much lower absorption rate of approx. 20%
Liposomal Encapsulation Technology (LET) allows for more effective delivery of nutrients ( Vitamin C ) directly into the cells, rather than having to be absorbed the conventional way through transport proteins. This delivery system results in higher bioavailability and increased absorption, making Liposomal Vitamin C much more effective.
What is LET?
LET stands for Liposomal Encapsulation Technology – it’s the term used to describe the delivery system that delivers Vitamin C nutrients directly to your cells.
What is a Liposome?
Liposomes are submicroscopic fat-soluble spheres, resembling tiny cells, with Vitamin C intentionally trapped inside the water-soluble center. Amandean's Liposomes are 50nm in size allowing them to optimally deliver the vitamin C directly into other cells in the bloodstream. The body normally excretes excess vitamin C in regular forms, but our advanced liposomal delivery allows the body to utilize almost all of the dosage delivered. Amandean's Liposomes are created using a class of essential phospholipids called Phosphatidylcholine (pronounced FOSS fah tie dal KO lean), sourced from the highest quality non-GMO sunflower oil lecithin.
Are there any side-effects of taking Liposomal Vitamin C?
No. Our Liposomal Vitamin C is in an easy-to-use liquid format that not associated with any digestive discomfort, even at high dosages.
As we recommend with all supplements, it is suggested you consult your physician before use.
How much Liposomal Vitamin C should I take?
Take 5 milliliters (one teaspoon) daily, or as directed by your healthcare provider. Pregnant or lactating women, and persons under 18 years of age should consult their physician prior to use of this product.
What is the expiration date?
We recommend you use your product within two (2) years of the manufacturing date. The date stamped on the bottom of our product IS NOT THE EXPIRATION DATE. This is the date the product was manufactured. Once opened, refrigerate and use within 45 days.
I Don't Like The Taste. What Should I Do?
Liposomal Vitamin C has a naturally strong and bitter taste. Although we use natural flavor extracts to help mask the taste we recommend to all of our customers to take their daily dose by mixing it in with a glass of fruit juice or their smoothie. Though some customers find our product just fine to take on its own, we feel its better to consume when mixed with another liquid.
Is Liposomal Vitamin C Vegan?
Yes, Amandean's Liposomal Vitamin C is vegan, soy-free, and sugar-free. It is also a non-GMO product.
What is the best way to take Liposomal Vitamin C?
We recommend taking Liposomal Vitamin C by mixing them into juice, or water. You can even take it on its own. Just don’t mix it with cranberry juice – it destroys the liposome.
Can I take Liposomal Vitamin C with other supplements?
Yes, you certainly can. We recommend combining Liposomal Vitamin C with either our Premium Grass-Fed Collagen Peptides or our Premium Anti-Aging Marine Collagen made from Wild-Caught Fish to increase collagen production and maximize anti-aging benefits.
