Product Description

Basically, there are 3 ways for you to get vitamin C into your body so it can go to work for you...1.) Eat a rich diet of raw, organic vegetables and fruits - most folks don't eat enough veggies and fruits.2.) Have vitamin C administered intravenously (IV) - requires a health care professional.3.) Take an oral vitamin C supplement - This may seem a practical way to boost your vitamin C levels.Liposomal vitamin C presents bio-availability advantages over traditional oral C supplements (non-liposomal). Plus, it's much more practical than the IV approach for obtaining higher amounts of the vitamin. The research is now quite clear that one of the best and most practical ways to supplement your diet with oral vitamin C is with a liposomal form of vitamin C. Here's a quick summary of why I think this formula is so extraordinary and one I highly recommend, because it...1.) Incorporates phospholipids to help protect your cell membranes2.) Utilizes liposomal technology for cellular high bio-availability potential and protection against occasional intestinal discomfort3.) Provides a higher dosage than traditional oral vitamin C and may help you avoid intravenous applications if a higher dosage is desired4.) Includes a sunflower lecithin emulsifier, thereby totally avoiding a soy-based one5.) Delivers vitamin C in a high-quality, tightly-sealed Licaps capsule that may be superior to other oral delivery systems in terms of leakage protection and bio-availability6.) Comes from a world-leading quality manufacturer with over a century of experience and innovative delivery technologies7.) Provides a more practical and effective way to complement your diet with vitamin C.I believe Liposomal Vitamin C is a phenomenal and convenient way to complement your healthful diet.

Dr. Mercola's is mis-represented.

I switched to normal vitamin C that is not liposomal coated and it works the same.

I have been aware of the great benefits of liposomal vitamin C for a few years now, and have used the overpriced product from LivOn Labs very successfully. I was so glad when a few months ago I discovered Dr. Mercola Liposomal Vitamin C at a much lower price. Finally, I thought, liposomal vitamin C at an affordable price. I bought a lot of it.

In the last few days it has come to my attention that significant and credible laboratory research has been reported that Dr. Mercola Liposomal Vitamin C is not true liposomal vitamin C, but rather merely an emulsion, which is much cheaper and much, much less effective. It's really just cheap ascorbic acid mixed with a little lecithin and enormously overpriced.

The report released by LivOn Labs called "Review of Dr. Mercola Liposomal Vitamin C by LivOn Laboratories Inc." contains a discussion of laboratory evidence that the product contains little, if any, true liposomes. Before purchasing this product you might be well-advised to consult this report:

[...]

As of this date, more than a month after the release of the above-referenced review, Dr. Mercola has been silent on the issue and has not refuted the report, nor provided any evidence that his product is true liposomal vitamin C. He has been presented the report and asked to provide evidence supporting his claims and has provided nothing.

I am extremely disappointed by this development.

Twice I wrote to Mercola.com requesting specific information about their product Liposomal Vitamin C by Dr. Mercola. Twice they responded that they would have to get the information from the manufacturer. To date I have not gotten the information therefore have lost confidence in this product.

I have been checking out this product also. See curezone.com for more information for one place. See comments under "donna" and her post for another place. I left a post on a Mercola Youtube post saying that Mercola's office is admitting the Liposomal C has no liposomes! I said this was shocking and shameful as desperately sick people are thinking they are getting the real thing. I said Mercola had done a lot of good things, but that I had lost confidence to buy any more of his products. I got a "message may be moderated" note. Quickly I went to another YT vid where Mercola is talking about the wonderful benefits of Liposomal C. I tried to write my same comment. I saw tht, in less than a few minutes, I had been blocked for good by Mercola vids! Gee, it would have been nice if they had said something like, "Here is data showing our product is what it claims to be." However, I just got blocked.

I was taking the LivOn Liposomal Vit C because I have lyme disease and it really helps to clear up detox symptoms, but it's pricey. I always thought Dr. Mercola was a credible person, so I was eager to get this product since it is cheaper and easier to take as a capsule. I went through a whole bottle and didn't notice much difference after taking as many as 4 capsules at once, several times per day.

Then I thought I would review the product just so people don't get the wrong idea from his Lipo C. I came here and discovered that I am not the only person who did not have a good benefit.

It would be helpful for Dr. Mercola to publish a response to the claims because truthfully, I did not think his capsules were nearly as effective as the LivOn brand.

First let me state I am not advocating this product. I have not tried it yet having been dissuaded by the controversies surrounding if it is truly "Liposomal". That said, I am always in the market for a deal! This is far less than the competing liquid products.

I do spend copious amounts of time in research in my work so I hope this might provide a different angle as you search for some accuracy. I will share what I found on this topic and some observations. You are welcome to draw your own conclusions.
Unlike the Vitamin C Foundation (aka Intelisoft Multimedia, Inc), I have nothing to sell.

I am going to state a hypothesis, and then try to prove it:
1. LiveOn Labs is using LIQUID FORM liposomal nanoparticle technology
2. Dr Mercola is using FREEZE-DRIED Liposomal nanoparticle technology
or Solid Lipid nanoparticle technology

ALL are valid ways of delivering a hydrophillic drug like Vitamin C inside a nanoparticle directly to cells.

Now lets look at Dr Mercola's Liposomal Vitamin C.
They state that it is Liposomal, has PHOSPHOLIPIDS, has medium chain trigylcerides.
"But wait!", you say, "Liposomal Vitamin C HAS to be in a liquid form!"

Not correct.

Time for some research. Lets look at [...]
"Preparation and Characterization of Nanoliposomes Entrapping Medium-Chain Fatty Acids and Vitamin C by Lyophilization"
Lyophilization = Freeze-Drying.

In this experiment, a standard liquid liposomal Vitamin C liposomes were Freeze-dried and then reconstituted.
It demonstrated that you can freeze dry liposomes and bring them back. If you read the studies you will find that freeze-dried liposomes are as effective when rehydrated as its original state.
