Lypo Spheric C

Lypo Spheric  C versus other forms of Vitamin C can be a confusing choice in terms of what and how much to take. Vitamin C is absorbed from the digestive track in the small intestine and requires the presence of transport proteins. For vitamin C, these transport proteins are called sodium-dependent vitamin C co-transporters (SVCTs). A lack of these proteins produces a corresponding lack of vitamin C uptake. Published research lypo shereic cconfirms that SVCTs (transport proteins) tightly regulate vitamin C bioavailability by the digestive tract and once “bowel tolerance” meaning the limits of our bowel’s ability to absorb the vitamin is reached the remaining unabsorbed C is purged though our bowels, resulting in loose stools.

Vitamin C that is not actively transported into the cells will be filtered out by the kidneys and passed in the urine, which is a cause for concern for those with kidney disease and kidney stones. In addition, with many individuals suffering from chronic infection, autoimmune diseases, irritable bowel, and acid reflux, their ability to absorb this vitamin intracellularly is limited. Until lyposomal technology with Lypo Spheric  C came into being, the only alternative to obtain higher dosages of vitamin C was by intra venous injection.

To understand Lypo Spheric  C one has to understand the concept of bioavailability. Bioavailability refers to the degree in which a nutrient becomes available to the cells after it has been administered. Until a nutrient

actually passes from the digestive system into the bloodstream and into its target cell, it has little or no value because the cell has to use the substance for our body to benefit. Unabsorbed nutrients that circulate in our blood stream only increase our toxic load and must be processed as waste by the liver. Although bioavailability is only a partial measure of the body’s ability to benefit from a nutrient, this number quantifies the amount that a substance that successfully enters the bloodstream can be absorbed by the target tissue. One hundred per cent bioavailability means that all of the nutrient is absorbed into the bloodstream. This occurs with intravenous injection, and is the current accepted standard of interpretation for bioavailability. However, without proper transport proteins for specific nutrients our cells would not be capable of taking the nutrient into the interior of the cell where it can be used. If only a quarter of an ingested nutrient is absorbed, the bioavailability is 25%.

Oral forms of vitamin C come in different forms and have limited bioavailability. Mineral salts of ascorbic acid (mineral ascorbates) are buffered and less acidic but there is little scientific research to support or refute the claim that mineral ascorbates are less irritating to the gastrointestinal tract because of the mineral salts. Types of mineral ascorbtes are: sodium ascorbate, calcium ascorbate, potassium ascorbate, magnesium ascorbate, zince ascorbate, molybdenum ascorbate, chromium ascorbate, and manganese ascorbate.

Another form of vitamin C, Ester-C® had one published study of vitamin C bioavailability in 8 women and 1 man and concluded that no difference between Ester-C® and commercially available ascorbic acid tablets with respect to the absorption or excretion of vitamin C. Many patients report better results with this form of C and it could be because it contains small amounts of the vitamin C metabolites dehydroascorbic acid (oxidized ascorbic acid) and calcium threonate. The manufacturer states that the metabolites, especially threonate, increase the bioavailability of the vitamin C in this product. With the advent of liposome technology and Lypo Spheric Vitamin C, a bilayer (double-layer) of liquid-filled bubbles is made from phospholipids. Researchers discovered that these spheres could be filled with therapeutic agents such as the vitamin C in Lypo Spheric Vitamin C and used to

deliver these agents into the cells of the body. Because the bilayer structure of liposomes is nearly identical to the bilayer construction of our cell membranes, absorption is hydrophilic or water loving and thus easy to absorb. LivOn, the manufacturer of Lypo-SphericTM Vitamin C reported a bioavailability of 98% in one study. Furthermore as mentioned earlier, the C has to actually be able to enter the cells to do its work, LivOn conducted fluorescent microscopy whereby its liposomal C was tagged with fluorescent dye. This is a photo of the fluorescent microscopy showing the presence of the liposomes inside liver cells meaning they passed across the cell membrane proving bioavailibity.

Proof of cellular uptake of liposomes

The liposome encapsulation in Lypo Spheric  C overcomes all these bioavailability and cellular uptake restrictions because liposomes do not rely on SVCTs or any other carrier transport system. Instead, due to their size and composition, they are able to be passively absorb through the intestinal wall and into our cells. As a result Lypo Spheric  C provides a tremendously enhanced bioavailability (delivery into the bloodstream) and more importantly delivery into individual cells where they can then be used. Unless our cells can use what makes its way into our bloodstream, it’s a useless product that increases our toxic burden. This is the genius of Lypo-Spheric™ Vitamin C.  You can order this product by clicking on the “order products here button on the main page of this blog.
