(UtopiaSilver.com) Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, meaning that your body does not store it, and your body does not make it on its own unlike other mammals. We have to make sure that we are taking in adequate amounts each day in through our diet and through supplementation if we are battling a serious infection or illness. Liposomal Vitamin C supercharges the immune system like no other vitamin.
There are various types of vitamin c and ways that it can be taken. The best way to get more into your bloodstream at once without the side effects often associated with mega doses of vitamin c, like diarrhea, is through liposomes. Liposomal vitamin c supercharges the immune system and has been found to be more effective in treating an ill person versus high doses of intravenous vitamin c (through an IV).
Dr. Suzanne Humphries states, “Without vitamin C, the immune system is paralyzed and unable to regenerate the ability to dissolve disease-causing elements in the body.”(2) When you take in high doses of the vitamin c through liposomes, the ultra sonic molecular encapsulation of vitamin c, according to Dr. Thomas Levy; “Liposomes predominately get taken up by the lymphatic system in the gut…the liposomes, especially in the case of those containing vitamin C, rapidly load up the immune cells in the lymphatics of the gut, achieving high intra-cellular levels of this nutrient.” (1) Hence, “supercharging” the immune system!
Vitamin C & the Immune System according to Dr. Thomas Levy
“In addition to its role as the premier antioxidant circulating throughout the body, the scientific literature has clearly established vitamin C to directly promote and stimulate a number of very important functions of the immune system. These functions include the following:
- Enhanced antibody production (B-lymphocytes, humoral immunity)
2. Enhanced interferon production
3. Enhanced phagocytic (scavenger cell) function
4. Enhanced T-lymphocyte function (cell-mediated immunity)
5. Enhanced B-lymphocyte and T-lymphocyte proliferation6. Enhanced natural killer cell activity (very important anti-cancer function)
6. Enhanced prostaglandin formation
7. Enhanced nitric oxide production by phagocytes” (3)
Many other benefits of Liposomal Vitamin C include:
* Reduces Inflammation
* Diminishes Arthritic Pain
* Aids in Cell Detoxification
* Promotes Healing of Tissues
* Activates Natural Killer Cells
* Neutralizes Oxidative Stress
* Reduces Histamines
Liposomal research has come a long way since it first came on the scene in the 1960’s, now it is the “most bio-available oral way to deliver nutrients” to one’s body. Originally, liposomes were intended to replace chemotherapy seeing that it could aid in healing unhealthy cells without destroying healthy ones. (1)Unfortunately it is not being used as much as it should be among healthcare professionals, which couldn’t possibly have anything to do with a profit margin, wink wink. Liposomal vitamin c supercharges the immune system, significantly reduces inflammation and pain, and promotes healing of tissues unlike any other nutrient. If you’re concerned about vitamin c toxicity, you shouldn’t be. It has been proven by science and history time and again that it is one of the safest interventions. (2) “Always include vitamin C in whatever “wellness program” you choose to follow. There are many things you can do and/or consume to help you achieve the health and wellness you seek. However, you should never be completely comfortable that your health program cannot be improved upon.” (3)
