Dr Mercola’s Liposomal Vitamin C uses Lecithin from Sunflower oil instead of Soy, and contains the Ascorbic Acid form of vitamin C. Dr Mercola advises that although the capsules themselves do not contain liposomes, once the contents dissolve in the gut when taken with water, the process of liposomal encapsulation of the Vitamin C commences. This offers the most cost effective way of taking liposomal Vitamin C.
Nearly all mammals make their own vitamin C by converting glucose into ascorbic acid, but humans do not have this ability and must rely on dietary sources for their Vitamin C.
Dr Mercola’s Liposomal Vitamin C is supplied in hermetically sealed capsules. The potential for oxidation is further reduced by flushing the liquid formulation with nitrogen during the encapsulation process.
