Life Extension Vitamin C 24-Hour Liposomal Hydrogel™ Formula is a highly-absorbable liposomal form of vitamin C that remains in your system longer, for maximum benefits.
There are many reasons why vitamin C is so popular—it supports immune function, fights free radicals, and even helps keep your skin healthy. However, your body is only capable of absorbing a certain amount at a time. Life Extension has created a liposomal vitamin C formula that uses a fenugreek hydrogel to protect vitamin C once ingested. The result: better absorption and vitamin C benefits that will last 24 hours a day!
How does Life Extension liposomal vitamin C work?
Life Extension liposomal hydrogel vitamin C is encased in a sunflower-derived lipid sphere that supports absorption. This vital nutrient is further protected by a hydrogel made from fenugreek fibers, so it remains active in your body longer than a conventional vitamin C supplement. This makes Vitamin C 24-Hour Liposomal Hydrogel™ Formula the best way to maximise your vitamin C!
Vitamin C 24-Hour Liposomal Hydrogel™ Formula Benefits:
- Up to 7x greater absorption than standard vitamin C
- Vitamin C benefits that last 24 hours a day
- Promotes immune and cellular health

With that said, everyone's biochemistry is uniquely different and you may be able to derive additional benefit from an increased dose. However, we ask that all individuals using our products at higher doses than indicated on the label check with their personal physicians before increasing doses.
