Each 2 mL of Liposomal Vitamin C with R-Lipoic Acid delivers 65mg of sodium, 500mg of Quali®-C Vitamin C, and 25 mg of Sodium R-Lipoate. A serving size is 4 pumps. Each bottle contains 25 servings.
Even in small amounts Vitamin C can protect us from damage by free radicals. It is vital to immune function and is an essential cofactor in many enzymatic reactions in the body.
It is essential to the body’s production of collagen and the formation of blood vessels, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and skin. It is needed for wound healing and to repair tissues throughout the body. In the buffered sodium ascorbate form used here, it is well tolerated. R-Lipoic Acid (as the highly bioavailable sodium R-lipoate) supports the action of vitamin C. It is a potent antioxidant that can cross the blood-brain barrier, support healthy mitochondrial function, and help the body remove metals.
Both vitamin C and R-Lipoic Acid help increase levels of glutathione, our master antioxidant and most important detoxifying molecule.
With oral dosing of conventional vitamin C, absorption decreases with increasing dosage due to gastrointestinal saturation, or “bowel tolerance.” For this reason, Dr. Chris Shade developed our Liposomal Vitamin C, enabling effective, high level dosing. In addition, the formula uses Quali®-C, a premium “buffered” vitamin C in the form of sodium ascorbate. Buffered vitamin C is generally better tolerated by those with gastrointestinal sensitivity. In turn, sodium R-lipoate can reach peak plasma concentrations in ten to twenty minutes.
