Liposomal Vitamin C- Make Your Own and Save Lots!

I have the recipe for Liposomal Vitamin C!  Liposomal Encapsulation Technology (LET)

Absolutely the best vitamin C is one that is encapsulated in lecithin.  This kind of Vitamin C will get into the cells 7 times more than ascorbic acid on its own.
 Vitamin C has very low absorbability in the gastrointestinal tract of humans (16%). By encapsulating Vitamin C with a phospholipid (lecithin) membrane, we could directly by-pass the destructive forces of the gut with Liposomal-C being directly absorbed into the blood stream.
It won't cause problems for the stomach and you will be able to ingest a lot more without reaching your Bowel Tolerance limit unlike using ascorbic acid alone.
(Bowel Tolerance Limit: This happens when your particular bowel reaches bowel tolerance using Vitamin C and you will get diarrhoea. Everyone's bowel tolerance is different.  Some people can only tolerate very little without getting diarrhoea.)

If you want to try it out and see how good it is for you then order from the below:
Order Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C from the Vitamin C Foundation here for the best price for bulk discounts. 
Or order Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C from Iherb  for the best price on one packet of 30 sachets- here

OR watch this instructional  video to find out how to make if for yourself for a lot less and the full instruction are below.

Recipe for making Liposomal (Lipo-Spheric) Vitamin C
How to make:
1. Dissolve 3 level tablespoons of non GMO soy or sunflower lecithin in 1 cup of water (preferably distilled). 
Tip: This is key to being successful from the start. Mix the lecithin and distilled water in a seal-able  jar or use  blender or kitchen wizz so you can shake/agitate until the lecithin is completely dissolved. You don’t want any lecithin granules visible. Keep agitating until all granules are dissolved. 

2. Dissolve 1 level tablespoon of ascorbic acid powder in 1/2 cup of water.

3. Pour both solutions together in the ultrasonic cleaner bowl and turn the unit on. Using a plastic spoon or straw (leaving the top of the cleaner opened), gently, slowly, stirred the contents. Note: The cleaner will, automatically, self-stop about every 2 minutes. Just push the ON button to continue. Repeat for a total of 3 series (6 minutes). By that time the entire solution should be blended into a cloudy, homogeneous, milk-like mixture. 
Tip: Pour the dissolved Vitamin C solution into the sealable glass jar with the dissolved lecithin and shake briefly prior to pouring into the ultra-sonic cleaner. If you dissolved your lecithin first as directed above you will need to close the lid due to bubbling. Simply open the lid frequently and give the mixture a quick stir before closing the lid again.

4. This protocol furnishes about 12 grams (12000mg) of vitamin C product. At 70% encapsulation efficiency. This solution will keep, acceptably, at room temperature for 3 to 4 days. Refrigerated, it will keep much longer.

Here is where to buy a 600ml or 2.5 litre Ultrasonic cleaner for the best price and best quality I can find.

  1. Hi Michele,
    My sister had been making it for her husband who got agent orange poisoning in the Vietnam war and she had been successful in getting it to blend, but she has used the soy lecithin granules. If you send your email address I will get her to email you. My email is
    Her husband was pre leukemia from the poisoning but the Vitamin C has improved his blood platelets.
    I didn't have success with the sunflower lecithin either.
