I was wondering if anyone knew if liposome encapsulated vitamin C was as effective as vitamin C injections and if there were any negatives on using the liposome encapsulated vitamin C? The liposome encapsulated vitamin C is suppose to be 95% as effective as the injections and I am looking for some way to verify this and verify there isn't a downside to using the liposome technology.

My understanding (not a doc and reading 3 books at the moment on Vit C and Cancer) is that liposomal C is better than IV. IV C only stays in your bloodstream a short time, whereas lipo C stays in your system long enough that you could probably break it into 3 or 4 dosages per day and maintain high saturation.

Here's an article on making your own. I bought buffered vit C powder from LE for this reason ..

Hope this helps

I bought a jewelry cleaner from amazon warehouse for a great price and found the recipe easy to follow.

I've had trouble trying to mix it with the LEF powdered buffered vitamin C. Despite my best, most exacting efforts I get almost pure separation between the vitamin C and the lecithin. I'm going to try sodium vitamin C without any additives. I don't know for sure but it seems that the buffered vitamin C powder from LEF doesn't work to make lipo vitamin C.

Well I couldn't find anything but normal ascorbic acid powder, but it mixed right up. Mixed very well in fact. It was a piece of cake to make.

So make sure to stay away from any vitamin C which has additives or has been buffered. You want just straight  ascorbic acid. Here's some instructions. You can find more with a google search but DON'T USE BUFFERED C .. only straight ascorbic acid.

1.    Heat one cup of distilled water in a ceramic coated or stainless steel pan on your stove (do not heat it in a microwave oven) until almost boiling.

2.    Pour the water into your blender and add three level tablespoons of lecithin and blend until all of the lecithin is totally dissolved in the water. Alternatively place in jar and shake. Then refrigerate for 2 hours and then shake again. The lecithin should be totally dissolved or keep shaking. The fridge really does help the lecithin fully absorb in the water .. the most critical thing IMO.

3.    In one half cup of cold distilled water, dissolve one level tablespoon of ascorbic acid. Make sure it is totally dissolved, very important!

4.    Add the ascorbic acid mixture to the lecithin mixture and blend well.

5.    Pour the mixture into the ultrasonic jewelry cleaner and turn it on. Stir frequently.

6.    The cleaner will turn itself off about every two minutes or so. You continue to stir frequently and turn the cleaner back on until ALL of the foam is gone. Repeat: Continue to stir and turn the cleaner back on until ALL OF THE FOAM IS GONE!! If you've mixed the initial ingredients well the final mix will go quite quickly, in maybe 6 minutes, and it will look mixed immediately upon pouring the two together. Use the ultrasonic cleaner to shake the molecules together so the vitamin C is encapsulated in a lecithin shell.

Why iso vitamin C?
Regular vitamin C is absorbed at approximately 19%, the balance remains in the gastrointestinal tract to attract water and it loosens/irritates the bowels. Liposomalized vitamin C is absorbed at 75% and more, measurable in the blood stream. A 390% increase in absorption! You get IV results with oral dosage!

More importantly, this vitamin C easily penetrates cell walls since it is now oil based instead of being water based. That's the real key to why you want this. Anyone considering high dose vitamin C needs to consider this prep. One mix, as above makes about 12 grams of vitamin C but it works like 4 times as much .. 48 grams, and it goes places where normal vitamin C has a hard time getting to.

It's been some time since my post on lipo vitamin C and I thought the subject worthy of an update based on my experience with it. I use lipo vitamin C for my Dad, age 78, stage 4 colon cancer, spread to the mesantary sack.

He has been taking lipo C, along with many other supplements and chemo (he's at the end of his second stint of chemo, having been on chemo since January 2012). He is doing very well, with enough energy to still care for his farm and horses, still has his hair, etc. In short, he's doing vastly better than normal and beyond expectations.

My father credits lipo C with quite a bit of his outstanding current health. He believes it's been most responsible, amongst all his supplements for maintaining his energy during chemo. It's very worth a try.

Also we have found that branded products from Whole Foods (vit C powder and lecithin granules) mix without the need for ultrasonics, etc. Just heat the lethicin, blend it, mix vitamin C, then mix together once cooled. It should blend completely with just some shaking. Very much an easy process. Again I will mention not to heat up the vitamin C, as heat (I think over 115 degrees F) kills vitamin C. In addition to lipo C I would also recommend that you take some normal vitamin C orally, maybe 3-5 grams of buffered C. The body processes lipo C very differently from normal vitamin C, as lipo C bypasses the intestines.

Watch 'Parade' magazine in your Sunday paper for an Harbor Freight 20% discount (on any item) coupon to use for an ultrasonic parts cleaner mentioned in the article "How to Make Liposomal Vitamin C" cited by Breezy (2/20/12). You may also find the coupon among the other coupons included with your Sunday paper. It saves you $6.
