First of all, who is Dr Derrick DeSilva and why should I trust him? Dr Derrick Desilva is a celebrated US physician who has made it his mission to make people more aware of the need to take preventative medicine rather than reactive medicine. He hosts regular health features on several major US networks like CNN and when he’s not on the news, he continues his work on his own radio show. He places the onus very much on physical deterrence to nullify the threat of disease before it becomes a factor you have to deal with. In other words, he wants us to attack disease at the source, at its very roots.
Be that as it may, what makes Liposomal Vitamin C any different to an oral solution? To understand that we first need to understand just what Liposomes are.
The best way to think of Liposomes is to imagine them as tiny phospholipid bubbles which transport nutrients and vitamins (like Vitamin C) around our body. The great thing about Phospholipids are that we actually use them already, in the membrane of every cell in our body.
By ‘wrapping’ vitamins in Liposomes, we can actually help to guarantee higher bioavailability of that micronutrient by making sure of two things. Firstly, the liposome is fat soluble - that means that it won’t breakdown as it passes through the body’s digestive system. Secondly, the liposome will be actively attracted to like substances - it will seek out our cells and deliver the Vitamin C to them directly and at highest possible potency.
If you take a few moments to search online for Liposomal treatments it will quickly become apparent that there are an increasing number of so-called Liposomal treatments available. What won’t be so clear is that the majority of these, including the apparent homemade ones aren’t necessarily legitimate.
To create an actual liposomal treatment, Swanson Ultra Dr Derrick DeSilva's Liposomal Vitamin C has had to react the active agents with the phospholipid carrier on an infinitesimally minute scale. This, as you can imagine, is not as easy. Purity, accuracy and authenticity of product are all absolutely crucial.
Vitamin C is critical to our health - we all know that. As an antioxidant it helps support our immune systems and we need it, in abundance, to stay healthy.
What some amongst us have noticed though is that when we take Vitamin C orally, whether as a powder or in tablet form, it can have unwanted and unpleasant side effects. Because of Vitamin C’s high levels of acidity, when it is taken regularly, in higher doses, it has been known to cause intestinal upsets like diarrhea.
Swanson Ultra Dr Derrick DeSilva's Liposomal Vitamin C provides the nutrient with a phospho lipidic barrier for the ascorbic acid from our digestive tracts, meaning that you can feel free to take your vitamin C, free from the worries of gastrointestinal distress.
