How does Vitamin C Function in the Body?
Works as an anti-oxidant: Vitamin C fights free radicals, that cause oxidative damage to lipids, proteins and DNA; and lowers inflammation in the body. In this capacity, vitamin C helps to:
- Support heart health by preventing oxidation of LDL cholesterol and resulting inflammation. This reduces atherosclerosis risk (accumulation of plaque that causes heart attack and stroke.)
- Protects against free radical damage by cigarette smoke, UV rays, air pollution and harsh chemicals
- Reduces DNA damage caused by radiation exposure. DNA damage can cause cancer and genetic disorders.
- Prevents premature cellular aging
A Japanese study found that high doses of Vitamin C and other anti-oxidants minimized DNA damage and reduced overall risk of developing cancer in workers exposed to severe radiations at the Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant. 
Required for collagen synthesis: Your body needs vitamin C to synthesise and repair collagen, a protein fibre that provides structural support to connective tissues in the body. It works as a cement that kind of holds everything together inside the body. Whether it is our skin, muscles, eyes, heart, ligaments, tendons, nerves, blood vessels, hair or teeth, all our tissues are made up of collagen. In this capacity, vitamin C helps to:
- Maintain muscle health
- Heal burns, wounds and injuries faster
- Make teeth and gums healthy
- Improve skin health
- Maintain strength and integrity of blood vessels, making them more resistant to plaque formation.
- Reverse hardening of arteries
- Maintain joints and bones health
Charges the immune system: Vitamin C’s role as an immune booster is widely known. It strengthens the body’s natural ability to protect against many types of bacterial and viral infections.
- Increases production and activity of white blood cells and antibodies
- Reduces the duration and severity of the common cold
- Prevents viruses from replicating in cells and the spread of infections
We can’t make or store vitamin C in our body: That’s why we must get it from our diet, through food or supplements. However, most of the vitamin C present in raw foods is lost during the cooking process. In addition, smoking and alcohol depletes vitamin C from the body. Restricted diets, excessive dependence on drugs and antibiotics and chronic diseases like cancer, Crohn's disease, and ulcerative colitis further makes you vitamin C deficient.
Why Liposomal Vitamin C?
The problem with typical vitamin supplements (in tablets, pills or powder form) is that they are not very well absorbed in the gut. Most of it is degraded and lost during digestion. In fact, less than 20 % of vitamin C that we consume – whether through food or conventional supplements – is actually bio-available for uptake by the cells, where it must reach.
To add to these absorption woes, only a small amount from what is eventually released into the bloodstream reaches the cells. Being water soluble, vitamin C can’t easily penetrate cell membranes, which are made of fat. Furthermore, high doses of vitamin C causes gastrointestinal problems like abdominal cramps, bloating and diarrhoea.
Using liposomal technology to encapsulate and deliver vitamin C solves these absorption and bio-availability challenges. Liposomes are microscopic bubbles made of layers of phospholipids, the same type of fat that cell membranes are composed of. When loaded with dietary supplements or pharmaceutical drugs, these particles serve as a perfect vehicle to deliver drugs and nutrients directly to the cells.
Why liposomal vitamin C is better than other forms of vitamin C?
- Bypasses the digestion process – resulting in direct delivery to cells, hence increased bioavailability
- Encapsulates and carries vitamin C within phospholipids bilayer – helping it cross the membrane-barrier without resistance, hence more uptake by the cells.
- Prevents gastric distress commonly experienced with traditional forms of supplements.
Our liposomes are made of phospholipids derived from GMO-free sunflower oil.
SANUS-q Liposomal Vitamin C Contains Glutathione
High quality Liposomal Vitamin C from SANUS -q comes with added glutathione, the master antioxidant and powerful detoxifier.
- Scavenges free radicals, lowers oxidative damage and the resulting inflammation
- Helps in DNA synthesis and DNA repair
- Helps the body to recycle other antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E and lipoic acid
- Detoxifies liver; chelates and removes heavy metals, drugs and chemicals
- Improves functions of immune cells and fights infections
- Offers protection against radiation exposure
Warnings and Precautions
Vitamin C increases iron absorption. Get your ferritin levels checked before you start using liposomal vitamin C. Too much iron in the body can increase your risk of heart disease. Your ferritin levels should be less than 80 ng/mL and transferrin saturation should be less than 40%.
Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, and also to determine if the supplement is suitable for children.
