What is Liposomal Vitamin C?

October 12, 2021

By now we all know the importance of Vitamic C

  • It is important for immune health

  • It helps with the normal functioning of the nervous system

  • Collagen formation relies heavily on adequate levels of vitamin C

  • It contributes to our psychological functioning

  • It is a powerful antioxidant, which helps to protect our cells from oxidative stress

However, a lot of vitamin C products on the market can be quite difficult to absorb and the excess is excreted through the urine leaving the body in short supply of the vital nutrient.

What are liposomes?

Liposomes are micro bubbles made from lipids which surround the molecule or substance to be delivered. In this case the molecule is vitamin C The vitamin C in the liposomes are taken up by the digestive system and delivered into the bloodstream more efficiently.

Why is liposomal vitamin C superior?

The liposomes protect the Vitamin C from breaking down in the harsh environment of the digestive system and when they reach the small intestine, the liposomes are absorbed rapidly into the circulation. Once the liposomes arrive at the cells in your body, the phospholipid bilayers of the liposomes and cell membranes merge and the Vitamin C is released into the cell.

With Somega liposomal products the direct cell delivery of the vitamin C ensures that you absorb all of the product unlike some other forms of vitamin C. It means that you get the best every time.

Liposomal Vitamin C & Collagen 

We particularly love the collagen assisting properties of Somega Liposomal Vitamin C. Liposomal vitamin C is very significant for collagen protection, it is involved in the production of collagen and it also shields the structure of collagen.

Vitamin C is constantly being used in the cycle of collagen production which is continuous in the body. Since our bodies cannot make vitamin C, we require it in very large amounts and this can be difficult to get through the diet alone.

Vitamin C is the fuel that powers collagen creation and the Liposomal Vitamin C is the most effective and bioavailable way to take it.
