- Non-GMO and gluten-free
Liposomal Vitamin C is a highly bioavailable form of this essential antioxidant known to protect against oxidative damage, support healthy immune function, and play an essential role in collagen synthesis. Vitamin C is a cofactor for prolyl and lysyl hydroxylases, enzymes needed for collagen development in joints and bones. A higher intake of vitamin C has been associated with a reduced risk for osteoporotic fracture and an increase in bone mineral density. 1,2 Vitamin C increases iron absorption, stabilizes vitamin E and folic acid, and attenuates inflammation. 3,4 A greater risk for deficiency has been identified in a number of populations, including older adults, individuals with inflammatory bowel disease, cancer, or food allergies, and tobacco smokers. 4 Vitamin C supplementation enhances immune function and is associated with a shorter duration of respiratory tract infections, such as the common cold. 5 Supplementation has also been associated with improved liver function and glycemic control in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). 6,7
Liposomes encapsulate vitamin C in a phospholipid bilayer, bypassing typical limitations of absorption and increasing plasma ascorbic acid levels to a greater degree than typical supplementation. 8,9 Liposomal forms of vitamin C have been shown to nearly double the bioavailability while retaining the safety of standard ascorbic acid supplementation. 10

Vitamin C supplementation is contraindicated in blood disorders such as thalassemia, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency, sickle cell disease, and hemochromatosis. Vitamin C should be used cautiously in oxalate nephropathy or nephrolithiasis, as acidification by ascorbic acid increases the chances of precipitation of cysteine, urate, and oxalate stones, particularly in men.4,11
No known contraindications. Some medications deplete vitamin C, and supplementation may mitigate adverse effects, including aspirin, indomethacin, oral contraceptives, tetracyclines, and corticosteroids.4
