Vitamin C is essential for:
- Protection from damage by free radicals
- Vital to immune functions
- Essential for many enzymatic reactions in your body
- Essential for collagen production (for blood vessels, cartilage, ligaments, tendons and skin)
- Needed for wound healing and all tissue repairs.
With conventional oral vitamin C supplements, absorption decreases with increasing dosage because of gastrointestinal saturation or bowel tolerance. For this reason Dr. Chris Shade developed Liposomal Vitamin C, enabling effective high level dosing.
This formula uses Quali®-C, a premium “buffered” vitamin C in the form of sodium ascorbate. Buffered vitamin C is generally better tolerated by those with gastrointestinal sensitivity.
The addition of R-Lipoic Acid (as the highly bioavailable sodium R-lipoate) enables peak plasma concentrations in 10 to 20 minutes.
Liposomal Vitamin C can cross the blood-brain barrier, support healthy mitochondrial function, and help your body detoxify toxic heavy metals.
Both vitamin C and R-Lipoic Acid help increase levels of glutathione, our master antioxidant and most important detoxifying molecule.
