A liposome is a very tiny sphere comprised of an outer wall of fat and an inner payload of any number of water-soluble substances. The main thing is that the liposome’s membrane is made of the same fat found in the cell membranes throughout your body: phospholipids. However, liposomes are vastly smaller than any of the cells in your body, allowing them to pass into cells without difficulty.
What makes the liposome so special is that can deliver its contents (nutrients) directly into the cells of your body without any consumption of energy. Liposomes also protect its contents from digestion or oxidation before the final delivery into your cells.
When nutrients can be delivered into the cells of your body, not be degraded before delivery, and not consume energy in the process, the benefits of that nutrient can be improved in a way that even intravenous delivery often does not match. Liposomal vitamin C is best for that reason.
Vitamin C boosts your immune response. It is the leading antioxidant circulating throughout your body but vitamin C does more. Studies have proven that vitamin C also has the ability to directly promote and stimulate a number of very important functions of your immune system.
These functions include the following:
- Enhanced antibody production (B-lymphocytes, humoral immunity)
- Increased interferon production
- Enhanced phagocytic (scavenger cell) function
- Improved T-lymphocyte function (cell-mediated immunity)
- Enhanced B-lymphocyte and T-lymphocyte proliferation. Boosted the natural killer cell activity (very important anti-cancer function)
- Improved prostaglandin formation Increased nitric oxide production by phagocytes
Vitamin C benefits the immune system because of the structure of the liposome. Because it’s absorbed as fat, liposomal vitamin C enters the lymphatic system where it is transported to the lymph nodes throughout the body.
Overall the conclusion is that vitamin C also supports a healthy immune system and optimal overall health. It also helps to protect the cells from the damage caused by harmful free radicals.
