Quick Overview:

Although many only think of vitamin C when sick with a cold or for illness prevention, the potential benefits and physiological importance of vitamin C go far beyond this. Vitamin C is important for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of the body, it supports cholesterol metabolism, is a cofactor in numerous enzymatic reactions, and is necessary for the synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters.* As an antioxidant, vitamin C scavenges and neutralizes free radicals, and supports levels of vitamin E and glutathione.* Increased levels of oxidative stress may contribute to diseases such as depression, metabolic syndrome, autoimmunity, cardiovascular disease, and neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, giving many reasons for consideration of antioxidant therapies.

With oral dosing of conventional vitamin C, absorption decreases with increasing dosage due to gastrointestinal saturation. The liposomal delivery form offsets that loss and enables high-level dosing without intravenous therapy.* Sodium ascorbate, a mineral salt of ascorbic acid (sourced from corn) is the form of vitamin C found in this liposomal formula. Buffered forms of vitamin C such as this are generally better tolerated than regular ascorbic acid supplements by those with gastrointestinal sensitivity.*

Immune function: Vitamin C may reduce incidence, duration, and severity of common cold, and reduces levels of histamine which may improve allergies or asthmatic symptoms.*
Antioxidant: Vitamin C scavenges free radicles, inhibits lipid peroxidation, and supports levels of vitamin E and glutathione.*
Tissue health: Vitamin C stimulates collagen synthesis, particularly that of Type I and Type III collagen.*
Neurotransmitter and hormone synthesis: High levels of vitamin C in neurons and the adrenal glands supports hormone and neurotransmitter synthesis.*
Quicksilver Delivery Systems™ optimizes the bioavailability of vitamin C with this liposomal format. The phospholipids delivered with vitamin C nourish the membranes of the cells, ensuring proper function for the absorption of nutrients and the excretion of cellular waste products and toxins.*
In Liposomal Vitamin C, we use European Quali®-C, a sodium ascorbate form of vitamin C that is produced in the green hills of Scotland, and is fully traceable to ensure a clean, GMO-free product.

Liposomal Vitamin C: Beyond just Immune Support, this Antioxidant does so much more!


Although many only think of Vitamin C when sick with a cold or for illness prevention, the potential benefits and physiological importance go far beyond this. Vitamin C supports the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of the body, cholesterol metabolism, is a cofactor in numerous enzymatic reactions, and necessary for the synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters.1 As an antioxidant, Vitamin C scavenges and neutralizes free radicals, and supports levels of Vitamin E and glutathione.2,3 Increased levels of oxidative stress may contribute to diseases such as depression, metabolic syndrome, autoimmunity, cardiovascular disease, and neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease,4 giving many reasons for consideration of antioxidant therapies.


With oral dosing of conventional Vitamin C, absorption decreases with increasing dosage due to gastrointestinal saturation.5 The liposomal delivery form offsets that loss and enables high-level dosing without intravenous therapy.* Lymphatic delivery via liposomes bypasses the first-pass metabolism in the liver, which increases oral bioavailability.6 Quicksilver Scientific uses sodium ascorbate, a mineral salt of ascorbic acid (sourced from corn) as the form of Vitamin C in the PurXpressions liposomal formula. Buffered forms of vitamin C such as this are generally better tolerated than regular ascorbic acid supplements by those with gastrointestinal sensitivity.*
