Altrient C offers the perfect solution because of its scientifically proven liposomal delivery method. This powerful form of transportation encapsulates the nutrient in a microscopic phospholipid bubble that carries it within minutes directly to the cells, protecting it from the destructive elements of the digestive system. Altrient C is the most effective option for ensuring your body has adequate vitamin C levels.
Naturecleverly combines nutrients in food that work together veryeffectively to provide a multitude of health benefits. As an example,broccoli provides vitamin C, alpha lipoic acid, B vitamins and awhole range of other beneficial compounds. These combined nutrientshave a far greater effect on health than an individual nutrientworking alone.
Combiningsupplements in a similar way ensures that the co-factors needed tostimulate activity of specific nutrients, such as vitamin C, areavailable to maximise its effects in the body. All Altrient supplements can be taken together, wehave paired some here that have a powerful synergy:
The B vitamins and vitamin C are crucial for energy production, playing an important role in the oxygenation of red blood cells and the release of energy from our food. No oxygen-no energy! The strength and elasticity of the skin, hair and nails are also dependant on the combined actions of the B complex vitamins and vitamin C. Vitamin C is an essential factor in the production of collagen.
Physical and mental ageing is partly due to damaging cellular changes, especially those that occur in the mitochondria of the cells where energy is generated. Acetyl L Carnitine not only plays a vital role in aiding the production of energy but has also been shown to improve mitochondrial function. Furthermore, studies suggest that the considerable antioxidant benefits of Acetyl L Carnitine are significantly enhanced when combined with vitamin C.
Immune Support Staple A quintessential vitamin for immune and detox support. Our liposomal delivery bypasses the typical absorption constraints in the gut, delivering this nutrient directly to the cells for rapid uptake.
Between 14-30% of the vitamin C consumed in supplement form is actually absorbed by the body. ( Source 1) That number can vary greatly depending on your own vitamin C needs and the type of supplements you take. Consuming five servings of raw foods high in vitamin C per day, such as berries, kiwi, broccoli and citrus, will provide adequate vitamin C. Adding supplemental vitamin C in the form of ascorbic acid, the equivalent form of vitamin C found naturally in foods, will increase blood levels further, but natural absorption of vitamin C above the intake of about 200 mg decreases sharply with increasing doses by as much as 50%. ( Source 2) This may be because our bodies use certain transporters of vitamin C in the small intestine called Sodium-Dependent Vitamin C Transporters (SVCT -1) which will absorb efficiently only up to a certain point and this absorption is regulated by our bodies depending on the level of vitamin C in plasma (blood). In addition, any excess absorbed vitamin C is destined to be excreted in urine to maintain a small tight control on plasma concentrations. This is where liposomal vitamin C has an advantage.
Liposomes are phospholipid containing microscopic spheres that carry vitamin C at their core. Their absorption does not depend on vitamin C transporters like SVCT-1 but rather on the direct fusion of the liposome with the small intestinal cells resulting in the direct intracellular release of the vitamin C which eventually ends up into the blood circulation.
Liposomes are actually similar to cells. The same phospholipids that makeup cell membranes also make up the outer shell of liposomes. The inner and outer walls of the liposome are made up of phospholipids, the most common being phosphatidylcholine, to create a lipid bilayer. A double layer of phospholipids (phospholipid bilayer) creates a sphere around an aqueous (water-containing) component, such as dissolved vitamin C.
As mentioned above, liposomes are thought to fuse with the cells responsible for absorbing nutrients making up the gut lining called enterocytes. Because they bypass the normal mechanism of absorbing vitamin C through slow vitamin C receptors type 1 (sodium-dependent vitamin C receptors SCVT 1), the bioavailability is much higher than standard vitamin C supplements. ( Source 3 )
Bioavailable simply means how well vitamin C absorbs into your system. As we already mentioned liposomal vitamin C supplement allows your small intestine to absorb more of the nutrient than a standard vitamin C supplement.
A 2016 study in 11 human subjects found that vitamin C encapsulated in liposomes increased vitamin C levels in the blood by substantially compared to an un-encapsulated (non-liposomal) supplement at the same dose (4 grams). ( Source 4 )
High doses of IV vitamin C are used most frequently in conjunction with cancer treatment and provide a pro-oxidant effect which can ONLY be achieved with very high IV doses of vitamin C. The pro-oxidant effect of high dose IV vitamin C is very different than that of low doses of vitamin C which provide anti-oxidant activity.
Although blood levels achieved by IV infused vitamin C are much higher than liposomal vitamin C, one study observed that liposomal vitamin C was nearly as effective as IV vitamin C at preventing tissue damage during reperfusion. The research was conducted in 11 subjects who had temporary obstruction of blood flow to their arms blood flow by tourniquet. ( Source 4 )
Intravenous vitamin C can be used in high doses to fight cancer in tandem with traditional chemotherapy. It may not eradicate cancer on its own, but it can definitely improve the quality of life, increasing energy and mood for many cancer patients.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies, however our own natural collagen production slows around the age of 25. Vitamin C is a cofactor in the enzymes that produce collagen, meaning it is necessary to the function and health of your bones, blood vessels, and joints where collagen abounds. ( Source 11 ). When vitamin C levels run low, such as in times of stress, infection, chronic illness (i.e. diabetes, autoimmune illness which generate high levels of free radicals and oxidative stress), less of it is available for collagen production. Since collagen is the structural protein that holds us together, this can manifest as weaker joints, tendons, blood vessels and connective tissue. More superficially, weaker collagen can manifest as sagging skin with more wrinkles.
Ester forms of vitamin C, like Ascorbyl Palmitate, are easily digested after oral ingestion by enzymes in the small intestine which cleave the bond immediately releasing just plain vitamin C (ascorbic acid molecule) and the ester, in this case palmitate, before any absorption can take place.
When this digestion happens, plain vitamin C is released from the ester and no improved absorption occurs when compared to a standard vitamin C supplement. ( source 15, source 16 ). The bioavailability of fat soluble vitamin C esters is essentially identical to plain vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) alone. ( Source 18 )
Unfortunately few people know this, results in unassuming customers paying top dollar for a product that is not much different than a standard vitamin C capsule or powder but has the term \"liposomal\" attached to it.
There are two basic types of liposomal supplements that have to do with \"liposome\" formation. The first is an already formed liposome vitamin C and, while the other is a pro-liposome. A pro-liposome is chemically bound vitamin C and contains phospholipids in a manner which will result in a liposome formation in the presence of water at body temperature.
In the form of a pro-liposomal powder, the vitamin C is surrounded (conjugated) by a layer of phospholipids and other fats in a special technical process that can greatly vary in effectiveness. How well this proprietary process of binding the lipids to the vitamin C occurs is key, because if the lipids and the vitamin C are only mixed together (not bound), the formation of liposomes with vitamin C inside will be sporadic at best as the vitamin C can just disperse away separately from the lipids.
Liquid pro-liposomes use lipids (fats) and vitamin C. Based on proprietary manufacturing techniques, these lipids will form liposomes around the main ingredient when they are exposed to water and correct temperature conditions, as are found the environment of the small intestine.
For specific health issues, a higher dose may be warranted. The Linus Pauling Center recommends a dose of 2,000 milligrams per day, which is generally very safe and can account for the poorer absorption capacity in some individuals. People who may benefit most from this high dose include the elderly and smokers, who also have an increased need for vitamin C.
This is where liposomal vitamin C comes in. Liposomal vitamin C is more absorbable and bioavailable in the body because the vitamin C is encased within liposomes, microscopic droplets surrounded by a lipid bilayer, the same kind of barrier as our cell membranes.
Vitamin C helps synthesize neurotransmitters like dopamine and norepinephrine, the chemical signals that regulate our mood.* Real liposomal vitamin C can easily cross the blood-brain barrier, where it can be immediately used for mental support and mood regulation. 
For BodyBio Liposomal Vitamin C, we recommend a standard dosage of 2 capsules daily, providing 1,000 mg of liposomal vitamin C. The upper limit for adults is 2,000 mg per day of vitamin C. If you have complex health concerns, consult with your healthcare professional.
Standard vitamin C can easily cause digestive upset if taken in high doses. Liposomal vitamin C C, however, since it is much more rapidly absorbed and used by the body, is far less likely to cause any side effects, as it is much more rapidly absorbed and used by the body,. Still, you should follow your health practitioner's direction on a dose that is appropriate for you. 59ce067264
