cc“Very, very high doses of vitamin C works as an antiviral, an antibiotic, an antihistamine, an antipyretic which means it lowers fever, and (is) an antitoxin. This is physiology, not philosophy,” says Andrew Saul, PhD in “That Vitamin Movie”.

Using this methodology is not new. The documented track record is unequivocally show through the research of William J. McCormick (1880-1968), Roger J. Williams (1893-1988), Claus Washington Jungeblut (1898-1976), Ruth Flinn Harrell (1900-1991), Evan Shute (1907-1982), Frederick Robert Klenner (1907-1984), Linus Pauling (1901-1994 Pauling is the only person to ever win the Pulitzer Prize twice – both awards being from his findings on high dose vitamin C), Abram Hoffer (1917-2009) and Robert F. Cathcart (1932-2007). All have what is considered long or very long lives.

“I had a bout of influenza not too long ago. This is what happens with almost anybody when they get run down, they don’t follow the rules and they eat too much pizza (emphasis his). I was taking 30,000 mg of vitamin C per dose. That’s six rounded teaspoons of ascorbic acid at one time and the symptoms were gone in less than two days,” Saul says.

c, 1He goes on to say, “If I had one wish I would ask everybody to get four or five thousand milligrams of vitamin C a day. I think that would change the face of healthcare.” His reason for this is simple. “The body takes in about three dozen nutrients total but you’re made out of 40 trillion cells. There are thousands of chemical reactions in the body. Many of these reactions will only occur in the presence of a vitamin, co-enzymes.”

Coenzymes function together with your enzymes, working together as a team making a reaction. If the vitamin that works as the coenzyme to the enzyme is missing, it can not function properly. Many people who take high dose vitamin C, like liposomal C, feel phenomenal the following day. Some think it is due to proper ability of these cells to function since they are supported by the coenzyme. 

Mega dose therapy is done through bringing your vitamin C levels up to bowel tolerance and holding that level until the issue or pain subsides. 

Cancer treatments are seeing success with a hundred grams a day of vitamin C. Other issues like depression, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and even hypothyroidism are being approached today with mega cdosing of vitamin C, appropriate meal planning and natural remedies. Some, like Philip Day (health researcher, writer and speaker) have their closest family members take their age in grams of vitamin C daily.

Andrew Saul says there are no records of anyone dying from this sort of mega dosing.

“Sometimes we have a problem with physicians understanding how important vitamin C could be,” says Michael Gonzalez, D.Sc, PhD. “In terms of structure it’s similar to sugar. That’s one of the mechanisms that cancer cells use because cancer cells have more glucose inceptors. When you don’t have glucose there they think vitamin C is glucose so they bring them in. Then in the presence of oxygen you have two hydrogen, two oxygen and you produce hydrogen peroxide which kills cancer cells.”

Dr. Tracie O’Keefe, DCH, BHSc, ND says, our cells are lined with lipids. When you make liposomal vitamin C you’re wrapping the C with a lipid so that the lipid can pass through the cell wall and be absorbed into the lipid lining your cells. This creates greater absorption of the C. 

c, 2She says, “There are representatives for drug companies out there who are telling people making it this way won’t give you any liposomes all, it will give you is an emulsion. I have to go with results. Particularly with Natural Medicine we go by results.”

Dr. O’Keefe says, “50 mls is 3 grams liposomal, the equivalent to 25 grams intravenous daily.”

Dr. Thomas Levy, MD, JD, says all infections and toxins damage the body through oxidative stress. He says, “Vitamin C can prevent and reverse the oxidative damage while strongly stimulating the natural antimicrobial and antitoxic properties of the immune system.” (1:01).

Liposomal keeps in the refrigerator longer but is best made weekly to maintain optimal freshness.

To make liposomal vitamin C follow the pictures in this post which show pictorial instructions on the process.

ccThere are many ways to make liposomal vitamin C. This is the one I use:

Take 3 tablespoons of sunflower lecithin and put it in 1.5 cups of distilled water. Place this mixture in your Vitamix, pulse it for 5 seconds then let this mixture sit for 20 minutes. 

In another glass, like a mason jar, mix together 3 tablespoons of ascorbic acid with 1.5 cups of distilled water. This ascorbic acid is clean, this one is made from acerola cherries. There are no studies showing which is better. Put the lid on the mason and shake this mixture until dissolved. 

Add the two liquids together in the Vitamix and blend for 15 minutes. Be sure the temperature of the mixture does not exceed 85 degrees. If it goes over 95 degrees discard the mixture. If the mixture becomes too hot add an ice cube.

Pour the blended mixture into an ultrasonic cleaner (this is the one I use) and turn the machine on for 30 minutes. Again, add ice cubes if the mixture becomes too hot. I add 3 ice cubes at the 15 minute mark.

Stir the mixture occasionally with a stainless steel spoon

c, 5Do not put your finger into the mixture for any reason. The ultrasonic action can add an air bubble to the bloodstream and kill you. 

After 30 minutes pour your mixture into a mason jar and store it in the refrigerator. 

Some people use soy lecithin which can be an endocrine disruptor. Sunflower lecithin is optimal but be sure to buy one without any fillers are added ingredients. This is the one I use. 

For one story of the medicinal effect of liposomal vitamin C click here. 

Let’s Talk Health says, one tablespoon of liposomal vitamin C contains 3 grams of vitamin C, each teaspoonful contains 1,000 mg of vitamin C.

The Journal of Nutritional & Environmental Medicine says, “Liposomes are absorbed from the gut and into the liver, before being released into the bloodstream.”

A study using subjects taking oral liposomal C showed a difference with types of C ingested as well as diet. They reported, “Our observations suggest that poor oral absorption is related to carbohydrate intake. Glucose and other sugars compete with dehydroascorbate for absorption by GLUT transporters. The subjects in this study reported that they often consumed 10-grams or more of ascorbate in a single dose, without significant bowel effects, provided their carbohydrate intake was low.” 

They further reported lymphoma cells responded with cell death, apoptosis, at a rate of 30% necrosis using ascorbate at 300 mML 21. When intake was increased to 400 mML 21 cell death also increased to 50%.

Liposomal dosing should be done apart from food so there is no competition for absorption.

Purchasing liposomal vitamin C is not an easy task as many manufacturers add fillers and ingredients, like natural flavors and potassium sorbate, which are not beneficial to a damaged micrombiome rebuilding on GAPS. 

This liposomal is clean but made from soy. If there is no other option this is what I would use. If you need capsules this one is clean. This one is clean but does contain a shelf life proponent that would be avoided when making your own.

Liposomal vitamin C contains phosphatidylcholine which is a key player in repairing a leaky gut. To read more click here.

13 Responses to Making Your Own Liposomal Vitamin C

  1. Isabel says:

    Great article, I would love to make my own, what better than to really know what goes into your supplements. I even got all the ingredients in my cart as I type but I was wondering if the ultrasonic cleaner is absolutely necessary or if there is something I can use instead, since it is not really inexpensive and I don’t think I would use it on anything else but this. Also can I blend it in a regular blender or is it necessary to use a vitamix?

    Thanks for the help, keep these articles comming.

    • Becky Plotner says:

      You do not need to use the Vitamix, any blender will do. You do, however, need the ultrasonic cleaner as it is what is responsible for making the C “liposomal”, putting the c into the lipid.

      • Isabel says:

        I’m going to start saving up for the cleaner then, and looking for some other ways to use it to justify the price to the husband. Thanks

    Great article – I would love to get hold of the Liposomal Vitamin C from Sunflowers that’s in the satchets but Amazon won’t ship it to Australia. I can’t seem to find any way of getting it.

  3. Stephen and Julie Britton says:

    Hi 🙂 I’ve found this Liposomal vitamin c – what do you think? http://www.return2health.net/liposomal-products/liposomal-vitamin-c-1/lypo-spheric-vitamin-c-30-sachets/

    • Becky Plotner says:

      Zinc and copper work together like a seesaw. When one is up the other is down and vice versa. I work in dysbiosis of the gut which goes hand in hand with zinc deficiencies. Copper issues are rare and not my specialty. Supporting the body and the body will fix itself is my belief.

  4. PT says:

    Thanks for the post. I am researching how to make Liposomal Vitamin C and your post has great info. I have 3 questions and hope you can help to clarify.

    1) For the ultrasonic cleaner, is it a must to have the “heating” function when turning on the ultrasonic function?

    2) I see a recipe call for adding some alcohol to make the Liposomal Vitamin C to make it more available for the body to absorb, I wonder what is your opinion on it? http://qualityliposomalc.com/process/index.html

    3) For the Vitamin C powder, other then ascorbic acid and Organic Acerola Cherry Powder, will Organic Cumu powder works fine?

    Thanks and look forward to your reply.

    • Becky Plotner says:

      No the heating element is not necessary. This was the least expensive machine at the time of posting. It is helpful for cooling so you don’t overheat and need ice cubes. Yes, I thought camu camu was listed, sorry about that. I have no knowledge on alcohol vs non.

      • PT says:

        Thank you Becky for your comments. I look forward to source out all the ingredients and select an ultrasonic cleaner machine to start making. I hope it works and help my body to heal.

        • PT says:

          Hi Becky,

          Sorry to bother you again, I have couple questions on making Liposomal C and hope you can comment:

          1) On the blender, can I use Cuisinart hand blender instead of Vitamix or other table top blender? Will it work the same and will it degrade the potency of the final product?

          2) For the ultrasound machine, different machines may have different speed setting, is it important to have certain speed in order to make liposomal C correctly?

          3) Also can I pour the blended mixture into a glass jar and put it into an ultrasonic cleaner that fills with cold water for 30min? Will this way affect the potency of the finish product? I just think this way for easy cleaning and keep the temperature cold by using cold water.

          Love to hear your advice. Thanks again.

          Patty
