Aurora Nutrascience Liposomal Vitamin C comes in a liposomal delivery system which is a easily absorbed through the digestive system.
Liposomal Vitamin C is created from all natural phosphatidylcholine nutrient-filled liposome nanospheres made from NON-GMO Soy Lecithin. These liposomes encapsulate and protect the water soluble Vitamin C molecules that help facilitate a more efficient transition through the digestive system and are absorbed more readily into the bloodstream. Liposomal Vitamin C is resistant to gastric acids and protects the Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) molecule from oxidative degradation while shielding your lower G.I. tract thereby eliminating gastric upset or the associated diarrheal. It moves through the stomach unharmed passing through the intestinal walls, transported to the liver and is absorbed into the bloodstream in an un-oxidized and unmodified state.
To put this into perspective, you would have to take 5 conventional 1000mg vitamin C tablets to get a 900mg dose into the bloodstream. With Liposomal Vitamin C, you only need to take 1 dose (1 tsp / 5ml) to give you approximately 1000 mg of vitamin C along with the added nutrition benefit of natural Phospholipids into your bloodstream.
Liposomal Vitamin C is 100% Certified Organic pure natural fruit flavouring and 100% Certified Gluten Free stevia sweetener to create a great taste. Also available in 480ml
