Heal Thyself with Homemade Liposomal Vitamin C

Posted by:

“In fact even when there is not a single outward symptom of trouble, a person may be in a state of vitamin C deficiency more dangerous than scurvy itself. When such a condition is not detected, and continues uncorrected, the teeth and bones will be damaged, and what may be even more serious, the blood stream is weakened to the point where it can no longer resist or fight infections not so easily cured as scurvy.” –Food and Life Yearbook 1939, U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Vitamin C has been a long-time favorite supplement for many and for very good reasons. It is the one thing that has made the whole difference for detox purposes, but it has also saved the lives of many around the world. It has regained popularity recently as a DNA protector from free radical damage in workers with severe radiation exposure at the Fukushima nuclear plant, where workers had no significant change in both free DNA and overall cancer risk when supplemented with vitamin C.

Vitamin C also helps manufacture collagen, vital for the health of all our tissues and the repair of blood vessels, teeth, joints and bones. It also helps to normalize blood pressure, heal degenerative diseases and prevent premature aging. It is vital so our immune system can fight viruses, bacteria and other microbes. Vitamin C is also important in the synthesis of brain chemicals such as our happy mood neurotransmitter – serotonin.

Megadose Vitamin C

 

Nobel Prize winner, Linus Pauling and Dr. Irwin Stone have helped pioneer the concept of orthomolecular medicine which uses megadose vitamin therapy – vitamin C in doses higher than those required for normal cellular functions. When taken in very high doses (10 or 100 grams or more per day, depending upon the person’s requirements and illness) vitamin C fights off serious illness. For instance, when the body is challenged by cancer, colds, toxicity or diseases, we are overwhelmed with free radical production. This is when our requirements of vitamin C increases. Read about Vitamin C’s Historical and Miraculous Record.

Mainstream medicine remains in the dark when it comes to knowledge about vitamin C despite the miraculous effects it has had on people whose prognosis was fatal. Vitamin C or ascorbic acid, is something you want to have in your medical cabinet, as it can save your life as it had done so for so  many people around the world. Vitamin C is also the best thing so far for adrenal support during very stressful times and/or when we feel extremely fatigued.

As a powerful water-soluble anti-oxidant that we are not capable to synthesize within our bodies, you might want to take 1 heaping teaspoon (4 grams) per day, when you first start detoxifying. During stressful times (either emotional or from illness) more doses are required, especially when you are eating a diet rich in carbs.

As it happens, vitamin C and sugar use the same port entry to access our cells and when there is little to no sugar to compete, a higher percentage of vitamin C gets into the cells making our requirements shrink. This is why our need for vitamin C goes down to the point where most people had to minimize or even eliminate it in a ketogenic diet – a diet based on animal foods and fats. And since most animals make their own vitamin C, it is possible to get enough vitamin C in a ketogenic diet without any plant foods by eating the proper parts of the animal: organs.

Keep in mind that vitamin C dosage should be built up gradually, and the same is also true for lowering the dose of vitamin C, in order for our bodies to adjust to the change. Going slowly also prevents Herxheimer reactions which come when you first start detoxifying. A Herxheimer reaction is an excretion of toxins from dying microbes (i.e. yeast overgrowth), sometimes called a ‘die off’ reaction.

Some say that pregnant women should not exceed 5 grams of vitamin C a day, although early pioneers on vitamin C have used very large doses for the benefit of both the mother and the baby. Large doses can cause diarrhea since excess vitamin C than your body requires doesn’t get absorbed. In time of illness, you can gradually increase vitamin C by 2 to 4 grams each hour until your tummy starts to gargle or you have a loose stool. This is what is known as titrating doses of vitamin C.

The most inexpensive vitamin C is ascorbic acid which you can get in bulk size, although other high quality forms and alkaline and better absorbed versions are available such as sodium ascorbate. If ascorbic acid gives you acidity, mix with some stevia, xylitol or a little bit of sodium bicarbonate to take the bite off.

For those concerned that vitamin C will increase their blood sugar levels, well, it seems that it doesn’t, even at doses of 2 grams every 3 hours.

Unfortunately, with so many medical regulations and drug protocols, vitamin C’s healing effects has remained in the back stage in a system ruled by Big Pharma. Despite this, it continues to help many around the world and it is starting to regain increasing popularity in conditions where no drug has made such a difference as vitamin C does.

Nowadays there are options that can substitute the intravenous (IV) vitamin C therapy in megadoses in the form of liposomal vitamin C which can be taken orally and made at home. If you are interested in getting the benefits of IV vitamin C in megadoses from the comfort of your home, don’t miss this relevant information!

Liposomal Vitamin C

 

A liposome is like a bag that carries a substance into your body and its cells. It is incredibly effective at this task since it is made out of fat. As it happens, it is the same type of fat that make up cell membranes, making the job of crossing this barrier much easier. Plus, liposomes are super tiny and in that way, they can go through every teensy crack of our cell barriers.

In order to achieve an effective megadose vitamin C dose – for instance, to kill cancer cells – you need to achieve a vitamin C blood level of around 250-350 mg/dl. An average person will typically have around 1 mg/dl on a fairly decent diet. After a 25 to 50 grams IV vitamin C therapy delivered in about a 90-minute period, the blood level is in the 200 to 300 mg/dl range.

Reports say that 6 g of oral liposomally-carried vitamin C is equal in delivering vitamin C inside cells, where it does its work, to 50 grams of intravenous vitamin C.

To make Liposomal Vitamin C, you need an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner like the one in the image. Just type on amazon.com or other store of your convenience and see which size is the most practical one for you.

Then you’ll need sunflower lecithin or non-GMO hexane free soy lecithin, and the vitamin C, preferably as sodium ascorbate.
Recipe

3 level tablespoons of lecithin.
1 level tablespoon of sodium ascorbate.
Dissolve the lecithin in 1 cup (240cc) of warm or cold water, preferably distilled. Let it soak for a couple of hours or so. It doesn’t have to clump, so using warm water is preferable (not hot!).

Dissolve the sodium ascorbate in 1/2 cup warm water, preferably distilled.

Pour both solutions together into the ultrasonic cleaner and mix for around 20 to 25 minutes.

A loading dose, for several months, of liposomal vitamin C is likely 2,000 mg three times a day, maintenance , 1,000 mg twice daily, increasing doses and amounts when needed.

This recipe provides 12 grams (12000 mg) of Vitamin C Ascorbate at about 70% – 90% liposomal encapsulation efficiency. It will keep at room temperature for about 3 to 4 days and refrigerated, it will keep much longer.

Recall that 6 grams of this stuff is the equivalent of 50 grams IV vitamin C. So you can take half the solution throughout the day for a day or two in case of illness. Wean off gradually throughout the days though, so no artificial drastic lack is perceived by the body.

I’ve used 3 tablespoons of sodium ascorbate with good absorption results as well. Three tablespoons instead of one tablespoon as indicated in the above recipe will yield around 16 grams of vitamin C per cup. The absorption of the liposomal variety is about 5 times the absorption of vitamin C straight, so that is approximately 80 effective grams (IV therapy).  That is a very high dose indeed! You will have to take that one cup throughout the day though, I doubt you’ll tolerate drinking in one seat without having diarrhea.

A note of caution

 

Those with iron overload (ask your physician to test for ferritin, transferrin, TIBC and iron) should keep in mind that vitamin C increases the absorption of iron into the body, especially in the heart where it can cause heart failure, palpitations and others. Ferritin levels should be ideally less than 80 and transferrin saturation should be less than 40%. If you are above those levels, you might want to donate some blood or refer to the Iron Disorders Institute. A great book on the subject is The Elephant Iron by Roberta Crawford.

    There appears to be a lot of confusion about this form of Vit C. I just finished reading an article by a research associate here at OSU in Oregon. She talks about the bioavailability of different forms of Vit C, including ascorbyl palmitate, but no mention of the liposomal kind. I’ve read that this form of emulsion is not true liposomal Vit C, but is basically ascorbyl palmitate.

    She does say, though, that ascorbyl palmitate doesn’t actually get into your cells or fatty tissues if taken orally, because the digestive process turns it into regular ascorbic acid, unfortunately.

    Would love some definitive clarification on this. Thanks!

      Hi Jason, liposomal refers to a tiny unit of fat which will make whatever it is carrying more readily absorbable into the cells, which happen to be covered by fat as well. So fatty stuff goes through easier through fat. Lipophilic: “showing a marked attraction to, or solubility in, lipids. 2. having an affinity for oil or fat.”

      You can see some images: http://www.nanosight.com/images/app/liposomes/Picture1.png

      http://www.livonlabs.com/cgi-bin/start.cgi/liposome-encapsulated/liposome-encapsulation.html

      Liposomal forms are used as different therapies in conventional medicine as well. It is just a way to delivery something more efficiently into the cell or wherever it is difficult to reach due to protective fatty layers.

        Thanks for the reply Doc. I did find another similar article, also by the Linus-Pauling Institute that mentions Liposomal Vit C and they say there isn’t any real data on the bioavailability as yet. (at least when the article was written). So there may indeed be benefits to it, but it sounds like taking the home-made kind orally might not work the way it’s theorized.

    Hi Gabriela,

    “around 16 grams of vitamin C per cup (…) liposomal variety is about 5 times the absorption of vitamin C straight, so that is approximately 80 effective grams (IV therapy)”

    So : 16 grams x 5 = 80 grams

    and :

    “”Recall that 6 grams of this stuff is the equivalent of 50 grams IV vitamin C.”

    Would that be 30 grams then ? (6 grams x 5 = 30 grams IV)

    Thanks

    reply
    • Gabriela Segura, MD  August 26, 2013

      Sorry for the mess. There is a report that 6 grams of the pharmaceutical quality kind had an effect and/or equivalent of a 50 grams IV vitamin C.

      When you make liposomal vitamin C at home, it will be only an approximation since it is not a 100% effective technology. The calculation that 16 homemade grams is around 80 is an estimation.

  3. James  September 9, 2013

    Liposomal vitamin c is wonderful stuff but should not be confused with an emulsion. The recipe above will make an emulsion that may increase your bowel tolerance to vitamin c but will in no way increase the bioavailability. Unfortunately it is a myth that you can make proper liposomal vitamin c at home and the testing shows it. Not to say taking vitamin c as an emulsion is a bad thing however a proper liposomal vitamin c will be absorbed up to almost 100% whereas an emulsion as little as 5% so the difference is huge. Given that some people are trying to achieve high vitamin c blood plasma levels for very serious illnesses to label something as liposomal when it is clearly not is irresponsible.

    reply
    • Gabriela Segura, MD  September 9, 2013

      James, this is a collection of research done in numerous people. The recipe above has tackled flu infections and other health problems that were lingering with no avail with other therapies. We can’t have hard and cold data from home made experimentation, but an estimation and sharing of experiences is worth it. The results have been good so far, except for those with iron overload which is why I included the note of caution for hemochromatosis. Of course it will be nice to have the super pharmaceutical kind. Unfortunately, lots of folks cannot afford it and/or is not available in their countries, not even for importation through international shipping.

    Hi, I have spoke to a number of manufacturers of the ultrasonic cleaners and they confirm that their is no evidence that their cleaners produce liposomes.

    • Leslie  September 21, 2013

      The makers of ultrasonic cleaners have no expertise in making liposomes.

      The question is, who has analyzed the emulsion, as you refer to it, to verify (say, under a microscope) that it is in fact “liposomed”

      I am interested in the actual science behind making the C liposomal, but it is hard to find real scientific evidence, only anecdotal and regurgitation of the same info. around the web using c, lecithin, and ultrasonic cleaners. I made a batch, I certainly feel the difference, almost like a niacin flush. It gives me a lot of energy too. It would be great if someone could measure before/after vitamin c levels in blood plasma.

    First, let’s start with the bio-availability of good old fashioned Vitamin C, taken orally. From the horses mouth, Linus Pauling:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXiUcU3rz3s

    Then everyone should know about the story of the man from New Zealand who was in a coma induced by flu complicated double pneumonia and leukemia. He walked out of the hospital after high dose vitamin C which started with IV and then led to oral liposomal Vitamin C after the Doctors refused to give high dose IV:

    You can tell, to a certain extent, whether the Vitamin C that you are taking is being absorbed. I take 6gms per day in 3 lots. This will normally colour my urine bright yellow. If I am eating no carbohydrates the colour is less. If I split the doses into 2 (6 doses of 1gm) the colour is less in my opinion. I have just started taking home made liposomal Vitamiin C and it seems to me that the bright yellow colour has completely disappeared. Do your own trials, don’t take it on trust.

    reply
  8. Charles Marriage  November 8, 2013

    I forgot to say that you can do a direct test of vitamin c in the urine, using test strips.

    Haven’t tried them yet so I don’t know whether they are accurate.

    However the test for liposomal action would be to do a couple of days testing of ejected vit c using oral dosing of a target amount (must be high-ish, say 10 grams per day) against 2 days of the equivalent liposome.

    An end to speculation I hope.

      Kasren, because of your fibromyalgia you might want to find Dr J Sarno’s “Healing Back Pain”. It is his second of four books, I believe, the first is no longer in print; but HBP is his best in my experience. Dr Sarno looks at the Mind-Body Connexion, TMS Tension Myositis/Myoneural Syndrome and pain; -pain effected anywhere there is blood flow. No matter how many times I read his book, I learn more about the interconnection of oneself physically, spiritually and psychologically. The pain is real, the good doctor knows it to be, so do not be put off by any thoughts otherwise. But he does give some answers that the usual doctors might not understand. Sensitive people are especially prone to the ravages of this pain and the people suffering this stressful pain that I have met are all sensitive caring people.
      With time spend on it, his theories come to make sense and many, if not most kinds of pain can be released and set free.
      Namaste and care,

    • Gabriela Segura, MD  December 17, 2013

      LOL! The liability hysteria.

      I don’t know how much in a TBSP of this liquid recipe. But roughly, half the solution of this recipe will contain some 5 grams of liposomal vitamin C.

      6 grams of liposomal vitamin C equals 50 grams of IV vitamin C, in theory.

      If you are in a detox phase, you can take 1/4th of your solution or less consistently for some time and then wean off gradually. Then you can reserve it for special occasions and/or detox.

      This is assuming you don’t have iron overload though.

        Kasren, To cut to the chase… one ounce is 28 grams. one ounce is 1/2 TBLS. a shot glass is 2 ozs or 4 TBLS. I use a shot glass to measure my liposomal Vit C. If you have just started taking it DRINK LOTS OF WATER! It detoxifies your body and the body releases the toxins through urinating. It is important to drink about 6 to 8 ounces of water a day, especially when you are detoxifying or you will get flu-like symptoms. I’m not a doctor.

  12. Nic  January 6, 2014

    I’m very confused about measuring with tablespoons. Out there are different sizes of tbsp. (I myself have three different sizes in my house.
    And secondly lecithin and vit. C powder have different density ( I measured a tbsp. of lecithin and one of vit. C (of course using the same tbsp.) and the result was :
    the lecithin weighted 7 gr and the powder 16 gr.
    3 tbsp. of lecithin = 21gr to a cup of water and one tbsp. of vit. C = 16 gr to ½ cup of water. These is what you meant?
    I used 150 gr.(5oz) of lecithin dissolved in 900ml of water (3 and1/2 cups) for 100gr. of ascorbic acid dissolved in 750ml water(3 cups). My concern is that I used too much lecithin (3 to 2 ratio).
    My big question is :how much lecithin I need to encapsulate 100 gr. of vit. C powder?
    Can anyone help me and be more specific and tell me how much of these ( in grams or ounces) to a cup of water.

    Best regards!

    • Graeme  January 18, 2014

      Nic,

      I sense that what is important is consistency in the measuring units. However, you make a good point.

      Go online and determine a measuring standard. The usual standard is as follows:

      3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon
      1 tablespoon = 14.3 grams
      (http://www.exploratorium.edu/cooking/convert/measurements.html)

      As for the difference in density of the Lecithin and Vit C, this is usually taken into account when determining the ratio of the mixture, so I wouldn’t be too concerned with that.

      So once you have determined the standard for comparison when using tablespoons as a measurement (this is why it is always best to use grams) then the rest falls into place.

    I have been making and taking liposomal Vit C for 4 months. Many around me have been or are down with the flu. I have a sensitive stomach and vit c in high doses sends me running to the bathroom. I used to use that as an indication that I was saturating when I would start to get sick. I can take large doses of lipo C and not get loose bowels. I have not gotten any illness since I began.
    One friend told her nutritionist about lipo C and she refuted it saying it isn’t possible. She promotes her own alkalizing vit c. I have been questioning it since then. It does seem many of the objections come from someone with a motive to sell their stuff. I’ve wanted to do a class showing everyone how to make it but wanted to be sure about what i’m doing.

    I am a little concerned about the high blood iron warnings. I had a hair analysis a couple of months ago from hair samples that were said to be about 3 months prior growth and the Iron went to the top of the chart. Does this indicate that there is a high blood iron as well. I don’t go to MDs even for testing so I don’t have a way to get a blood test. Is there some other way to know if your iron is too high? Does anyone know if I took a low enough dosage of Liposomal C to start would their be less dangerous early warning symptoms? Also, Is there another mineral that would lower the iron prior to starting the C?

    I was wondering if you could comment on the texture of the homemade liposomal Vit C.

    I have been taking Livon Labs Lypo-Spheric vitamin C for several years (on an as needed basis).
    Due to the cost and availability of the Livon Labs C, I have decided to make my own and have done a lot of research on the web. The stuff I buy is thick and slimy and wont dissolve. I haven’t been able to duplicate it with the recipes on the web (all seem to be similar). There is one you tube that appears to have the right consistency and the individual says that the C wont be effective unless its at the slimy consistency. I agree. What are your thoughts about this?

    Thanks, Bri

    reply
    • Richard  February 23, 2014

      Following the Brooks Bradley recipe, my mix looks like light brown milk. About the same thickness as milk. I use Swanson’s Sunflower Lecithin powder and their Sodium Ascorbate powder. The Ascorbate dissolves almost immediately without much help. The Lecithin dissolves in about 20 seconds using a cheap stick-blender. No long soaking necessary.

      The mix does not get thicker as you sonicate it, as some suggest. It seems to get a little thinner, which seems logical. The Liposomes make themselves. Their a natural formation given the right conditions. Sonicating breaks them up and causes them to reform into smaller Liposomes, which is the intent. The Liposomes are too small to see, but you can see the effect as the liquid rolls off the stirrer. It slowly gets slightly smoother and thinner.

      Bradley’s recipe, as he says, is meant to be forgiving. He suggests adjusting amounts for desired results.

        Based on what you have written, I have just wasted a *&!# load of time and product.
        I have also bought two different ultra sonic machines because I thought this could be the issue with the thickening. Can you imagine the frustration I have had with my so called failed experiments?

        May I ask how many minutes you use the ultra sonic machine? I have been going an average of 24 to 30 minutes. I feel that if I use the recommended measurements, just knowing the correct duration will produce a good vitamin C.

        Also, can you recommend any links that will help to enlighten me more regarding LET? I plan to take this to the next level once I perfect the vitamin C. Which sounds like I have already perfected. :)

        Sabrina

      • Richard  February 24, 2014

        Sabrina,

        Glad to be of help. Bradley sonicated his Lipos for 6 minutes and said that was sufficient. He and others have suggested that longer might be better. I assume that the whole container doesn’t experience the maximum ultrasonic force and that it takes time for all of the mix to circulate through areas of high energy. Otherwise sonication might only take a few seconds. Things do seem to become more uniform after five minutes or so in my experince. My cleaner has a max timer setting of 30 minutes, so I’ve been using that. But I’m not sure the last 15 is really that necessary. Sonicating does warm the liquid up too, which is a concern. Vitamin C doesn’t like much heat at all. I’m planning to use cold water in the cleaner (surrounding the glass beaker) next time to reduce heating some. I’m already using cold water for the Vitamin C since it mixes so well anyway.

        Don’t have any more links to share at the moment. My research isn’t quite that organized. When I’m trying to make a point I often use that as an opportunity to search again, which often pays dividends.

        Btw: The Vitamin C mixes so easily and the result is so thin, I’m considering doubling the strength in order to reduce the Lecithin per dose. I’m liking the effect the Lecithin seems to be having on my memory, but I’m not ready to be taking a lot more of it. Hoping to up the C and keep the Lecithin the same.

        Good luck!

        Richard

  18. Gabriela Segura, MD  February 22, 2014

I can’t give you the definite guideline, but just to give you an idea that folks do all kinds of stuff with the liposome principle and their trusted supplements/nutrients.

    Hi

    Have low grade prostate cancer. My natural path in previewing the recipe for the lip encap vit C
    told me to stop stop stop due to the choline in the lecithin being dangerous to the prostate only.
    Comments?

    Hi

    Further to the comment made regarding choline; is there another substance that can be substituted for the lecithin so to encapsulate? Mike

      If you have reservations, then it is best to abstain and use non capsulated vitamin C instead. Another possibility: you can contact some of the folks or pharmaceuticals that encapsulate vitamin C and explain the situation. Maybe they can offer you another solution with another fatty acid. I don’t think we know for sure the relation of choline and prostate cancer, but if there are doubts, it’s best to try the safest solution.

    So it appears that whilst the choline in eggs are bad..

    Using liposomal supplements against prostate cancer may actually express an almost trojan horse effect, with certainly no evidence of negative effect.

    Make your own conclusions of course.

    Started making my own Liposomal using freeze dried organic Acerola Cherry Powder (supposed to be better than Ascorbic Acid, as I’ve read that AA is not a real Vitamin C, it’s a synthetic usually made in China), and organic Sunflower Lecithin. At an rate, mine doesn’t taste quite as good as what I used to buy from my ND. (Cost was $40.00 for a 5 oz. bottle = $8.00 per oz!). My home made cost is $.28 per oz. Does anybody know how I can get the taste a bit “sweeter?” Tried Stevia but the after taste made it worse.
