The Advantages of Liposomal Vitamin C
If you’re looking to enhance your cardiovascular, neurological, and immunological function, liposomal vitamin C is a product to consider adding to your supplementation regimen.
What is Liposomal Vitamin C?
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble nutrient that is essential for human health. Unlike standard forms of vitamin C, The Wellness Company’s Vitamin C supplement features a liposomal casing that protects it from damage that might otherwise occur during digestion, to enhance bioavailability and absorption to ensure you’re getting the most bang for your buck. In a 2016 study, liposomal vitamin C was shown to be absorbed at almost double the level of regular vitamin C .
Benefits of Liposomal Vitamin C
Improved Immune Function 
- For decades, researchers have known that adequate vitamin C intake is necessary for the body's immune system to function correctly. Individuals lacking sufficient vitamin C are vulnerable to frequent infections.
- Vitamin C enhances immunity by supporting the function of white blood cells, the body’s first line of defense against illness.
- If immune function is important to you, vitamin C should be a staple in your supplement arsenal.
Cancer Support 
- A 2014 systematic review suggested that Vitamin C may mitigate many of the symptoms of cancer, such as fatigue, nausea, insomnia, and depression.
- More rigorous study is needed, but high dose vitamin C may be used as an adjunct supplement to improve outcomes for cancer patients.
Better Brain and Heart Health
- Vitamin C deficiency is a risk factor for the development of many chronic conditions, including neurodegenerative and psychiatric diseases such as depression and anxiety .
- Supplementation is a viable preventative option to mitigate the risk of such conditions, and could be an effective treatment adjunct for those exploring low-risk treatment alternatives to typical psychiatric medications.
- In addition to its benefits to brain function, it also improves cardiovascular health. According to a study in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition , high supplemental vitamin C intake significantly reduces the risk of coronary heart disease.
- Vitamin C plays a key role in the production of collagen, a protein that helps to hold tissues together and is essential for the health of skin, blood vessels, and bones.
- A deficiency in vitamin C can lead to a decrease in collagen production, resulting in dry, brittle skin and poor wound healing. Adequate intake of vitamin C can help to maintain healthy skin and promote the healing of cuts and bruises .
If you're unsure whether liposomal vitamin C is right for you, we recommend speaking with a trusted healthcare provider, such as one of our physicians at The Wellness Company.
