Vitamin C could be as important as Exercise

Some of the most exciting research to emerge in recent years about vitamin C is its potential positive effects on your bloods vessels. Exercising regularly is vital to be really healthy and it appears so is a daily dose of Vitamin C. It's especially for sedentary, overweight or obese adults. Keep in mind, no matter your age or physical shape, daily exercise is key to not only looking and feeling good, but it’s important for all your cells and body functions. In our view, there is no replacement for exercise. If you’re just starting out, take it slowly to build up your tolerance.

Researchers wanted to take a closer look at earlier findings that vitamin C supplements positively affect blood vessel function. A total of 35 sedentary, overweight or obese adults entered the 3-month study. Obese and overweight adults tend to have higher levels of activity of a certain protein that constricts blood vessels, putting those adults at higher risk. About half of the participants did regular aerobic exercise training such as walking and the other half took a daily dose of 500 mg of regular oral vitamin C. Measuring markers for the vessel-constricting protein activity, the researchers found that both groups responded equally in a positive manner.

What may matter most with Vitamin C and how it supports heart and vascular health is your plasma vitamin C levels. Eating a Vitamin C-rich diet daily or supplementing regularly with vitamin C tends to raise plasma levels.

Children need Vitamin C as much as adults.
It can be challenging to get kids to eat the right types of foods, especially vegetables. This can put them at risk for low Vitamin C levels as well. Children’s immune health gets tested year-round, so it’s important for their immune cells to have adequate supplies of vitamin C. In healthy individuals, high concentrations of vitamin C are typically found in immune cells.

However, support for their healthy immune function isn’t the only reason kids need vitamin C. Vitamin C is needed for the growth and development of your child’s body and mind. It's also important to mention here that children exposed to secondhand smoke need even more Vitamin C to help repair damage from smoke inhalation and exposure. Vitamin C for children is essential for the formation of:

  • Neurotransmitters and other important brain and nervous system chemicals.
  • Collagen, blood vessels, muscle, ligaments, cartilage, skin and other tissues.
  • Carnitine for energy production as it transports fatty acids into the mitochondria to produce energy and carries out toxic wastes.

Liposomal Encapsulation Technology - Delivering the Goods

When a regular capsule or pill is ingested it must first pass from the mouth through the digestive system to finally be absorbed in the small intestine. During this process, digestive enzymes in the mouth and stomach, digestive acids, bile salts and various gut flora degrade the nutrients before they are finally metabolised by the liver and made available to the body. This entire process slows and reduces the nutrients' bioavailability.
Phospholipids are impervious to the various digestive juices. This makes liposomes the perfect delivery system for acid and enzyme-reactive substances. In a nutshell, a liposome allows the nutrient to be delivered directly to exactly where it is needed, inside the cell.

This product has been developed and manufactured in a HACCP registered European laboratory using only European sourced components. Special techniques have been used to ensure the stability and efficacy of the product. You can find more information written on Vitamin C on the other Vitamin C pages.

The name liposome is derived from two Greek words: 'Lipos' meaning fat and 'Soma' meaning body.

Definition
An artificial microscopic vesicle consisting of an aqueous core enclosed in one or more phospholipid layers. In other words, a liposome is a tiny 'nano' sized bubble or sphere (vesicle) made from a phospholipid (in this case, phosphatidylcholine). This is the same material of which our cell membranes consist. These bubbles can be filled with substances such as Vitamin C, Glutathione or even drugs. Liposomes have the ability to carry either water of fat-soluble payloads, which makes them an ideal delivery system.

Formation
Phospholipids are amphiphilic, they consist of a hydrophilic (water-loving) head and hydrophobic (water-hating) tail.

When phospholipids are placed in an aqueous solution, the hydrophobic tails face each other avoiding the water and forming a phospholipid bilayer while the hydrophilic heads form hydrogen bonds with the water molecules. The lipid bilayer will form a closed sphere (liposome) to completely exclude water from the hydrophobic tail.

Clinical Study Absorption Results

An independent study was commissioned, for a comprehensive report on the bioavailability of 1g of liposomal Vitamin C (Lipolife® Gold) compared to 1g of non-liposomal oral Vitamin C. The bioavailability of Vitamin C has been a controversial topic. It once was assumed by the National Institute of Health (NIH) that oral Vitamin C intakes >200mg induced an absorption threshold of 220µM/until recently disproved by Hickey et al (2008) with a pilot-study that showed concentrations of >230µM/L could be achieved with 5g of liposomal encapsulated Vitamin C.
This was a significant finding for Vitamin C as a therapeutic agent since ascorbate concentrations at 300µM/L have resulted in positve results.
Only one other published study has validated the bioavailability of liposomal Vitamin C which showed a 4g dose achieved a peak concentration of approximately 187µM/L compared to 130µM/L with a non-liposomal oral Vitamin C (Davis et al., 2016).
The focus of this paper herein is to test and report on the bioavailability of 1g of liposomal Vitamin C (Lipolife® Gold) compared to 1g of non-liposomal oral Vitamin C.

24 healthy subjects took part in a randomised, single-blinded, cross-over study to determine the bioavailability of a single oral dose of 1g of liposomal Vitamin C compared to 1g of non-liposomal oral Vitamin C. The study consisted of two treatment periods and subjects were randomly divided into two treatment groups.
In the first treatment period, Group 1 (n=12) received 5ml of liposomal Vitamin C containing 1g and Group 2 (n=12) received 5ml of non-liposomal oral Vitamin C containing 1g. In the second treatment period, Group 1 received the non-liposomal oral Vitamin C whilst Group 2 received liposomal Vitamin C. At the end of the study, the two treatment groups had been exposed to both treatments.  A seven-day washout period separated both treatment periods. A baseline blood sample was drawn at 0 hours, the first treated sample was drawn 15 minutes later, followed by; 15-minute intervals until 1 hour; 30-minute intervals until 3 hours; hourly until 12 hours; 2 hourly until 16 hours; and the final sample was taken at 24 hours from baseline.

Plasma levels of Vitamin C are measured as ascorbate (µM/L). The Liposomal Vitamin C was provided by Lipolife® (Lipolife®, Drakes Lane, Boreham) and non-liposomal oral Vitamin C was provided by Curesupport (Curesupport B.V. Zutphenseweg 55, Deventer).
Results from figures 1 and 2 show the oral bioavailability of 1g of liposomal Vitamin C compared to 1g of non-liposomal oral Vitamin C across a 24 and 7 hour period.
At 2 hours post-treatment, liposomal Vitamin C reached plasma concentrations that were two-fold the concentration of non-liposomal oral Vitamin C at 205.1µM/L and 102.6µM/L, respectively.  Cmax was achieved in both groups at four hours post-treatment with liposomal Vitamin C showing a 2.4-fold greater plasma response than non-liposomal oral Vitamin C with concentrations of 282.3 µM/L and 119 µM/L, respectively.
After 24 hours, plasma concentrations of liposomal Vitamin C remained above baseline, however, plasma concentrations of non-liposomal oral Vitamin C had fallen below baseline measurements. A single oral dose of liposomal Vitamin C showed greater absorption and peak plasma levels of ascorbate compared to non-liposomal oral Vitamin C. Furthermore, liposomal Vitamin C resulted in quicker increases in ascorbate concentration and also sustained blood levels of ascorbate over a greater period of time than non-liposomal oral Vitamin C. Oral liposomal Vitamin C is superior to non-liposomal oral Vitamin C and is able to achieve plasma levels in greater magnitude lending itself for great promise as a therapeutic agent in the targeting of chronic disease.
