OR

Quick Overview:

This blend of vitamin C (as sodium ascorbate) with R-lipoic acid (as sodium R-lipoate) simultaneously supports the body’s antioxidant status while supporting endogenous production of glutathione.* As an antioxidant, vitamin C scavenges and neutralizes free radicals, inhibits lipid peroxidation of cellular membranes, and supports levels of the other necessary antioxidants vitamin E and glutathione.* Lipoic acid has been shown to extend the biological activity of vitamins C and E, also raising ubiquinol (commonly known as CoQ10) levels and endogenous production of glutathione via the Nrf2 nuclear transcription pathway.*

Lipoic acid has been studied in broad array of settings including peripheral neuropathy, insulin resistance, hepatitis, obesity, heavy metal toxicity, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, traumatic brain injury, and multiple sclerosis. Lipoic acid has been shown to cross the blood-brain barrier, which is why its benefits as an antioxidant have been studied in so many neurodegenerative conditions.* Lipoic acid has evidence as a chelator of redox-active metals in vitro and in vivo.*

Beyond its role as an antioxidant, vitamin C supports normal immune system function, cholesterol metabolism, and the growth and repair of collagen. It also is a cofactor in numerous enzymatic reactions, and is necessary for the synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters.*

Quicksilver Scientific utilizes sodium R-lipoate for this formula as higher plasma levels of lipoic acid have been shown to be achievable when supplemented in the sodium salt form.*

Vitamin C is provided as sodium ascorbate, as buffered forms are generally better tolerated than ascorbic acid by those with gastrointestinal sensitivity.* This enables higher dosing while minimizing gastrointestinal side effects. 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.

Quicksilver Delivery Systems™ optimizes the bioavailability of vitamin C and sodium R-lipoate with this liposomal format. The phospholipids delivered with vitamin C and lipoic acid nourish the membranes of the cells, ensuring proper function for the absorption of nutrients and the excretion of cellular waste products and toxins.*

The pleasant mildly citrus taste is suitable for intra-oral delivery for the best systemic availability. Product also may be dispersed in water or other liquid when desired. Topical application as a mask supports skin rejuvenation, antioxidant balance, and collagen formation.*

Liposomal Vitamin C with R-Lipoic Acid

Liposomal Vitamin C with R-Lipoic Acid: Beyond its well-known role supporting normal immune system function, Vitamin C supports the growth and repair of collagen 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 Delivered with Vitamin C, the antioxidant R-Lipoic acid (as sodium R-Lipoate) supports endogenous production of glutathione, an integral component of detoxification, via the Nrf2 nuclear transcription pathway.4


Quicksilver Scientific's Delivery Systems™ Vitamin C with R-Lipoic Acid brings you a highly absorbable form of professional-grade Vitamin C, partnered with R-Lipoic acid for optimal glutathione support.* The absorption of conventional oral Vitamin C diminishes rapidly as the dose increases due to gastrointestinal saturation.5 Quicksilver Scientific utilizes a buffered form of Vitamin C (sodium ascorbate) which is generally better tolerated than regular ascorbic acid by those with gastrointestinal sensitivity, enabling higher dosing without gastrointestinal side effects.


Quicksilver's Delivery Systems™ Phospholipid Encapsulation System brings the power of intravenous therapy into a convenient oral delivery.* Our Quicksilver Delivery Systems™ improves upon liposomal technology with smaller, more stable, single-layer spheres made from the highest-grade ingredients available. In addition to exceptional absorption rates, nanospheres like the ones produced by Quicksilver Scientific have demonstrated the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, deposit their cargo intracellularly and enhance lymphatic circulation of nutrients.6,7 Also, the phospholipids that compose the liposome shell feed the cell membranes;8 this helps ensure the proper function for the absorption of nutrients and the excretion of cellular waste products and toxins.*

General Suggested Usage: Adult:For general use, 8 pumps per day. For advanced intermittent use, may take 50 pumps (6250mg Vitamin C and 312.5mg R-Lipoate) or more per day, in divided doses. Increase dosage gradually, as tolerated.
Children: For general use, 2 pumps per day. Also may gradually increase dosage, scaling adult dosage by child's weight (adult = 150 lbs).
Topical application: Cover clean face (avoiding eyes) with one pump for a daily treatment, or use several pumps as a mask and leave on for 10-15 minutes. May be re-wetted and left on for another 10 minutes before rinsing.
