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.

    Hi Dr. Segura,

    I detox for heavy metals on weekends for 2 or 3 days. I use the Quicksilver protocol that I have mentioned previously. When I am in the detox, my adrenal become drained so I take 25 mg of Hydrocortisone daily during the 2-3 detox. Do I have any issues to worry about by taking the HC every weekend? Will my adrenal atrophy by doing this? Thank you for all you do.

        Hi Dr. Segura, I will lower the HC to 20mg. I will also plan to do the FIR saunas, but I won’t start until I am on a strict diet to correct my insulin resistance which causes my extremities to hurt, due to the sugar imbalance which is related to the IR. I tried the sauna a while back and all my bones hurt tremendously for days after one treatment. This also happens if I do a soak in warm/not water with epsom salt and baking soda. The last time I did a soak, my bones hurt for 5 days. In general my bones are very sensitive to any bump or hit on them. Do you have any idea why my bones would hurt after the sauna or epsom salt bath? Thanks.

      • Gabriela Segura, MD  September 26, 2016

        Sounds like a detox reaction. Make sure your diet is as clean as you can get it. You can try IgG food panel test to make sure nothing is slipping in. For instance, eggs and nuts often cause joint pain.

  3. Eddie  September 26, 2016

    Dr. Segura, my diet is pretty good. I mostly eat organic. Vegetables I eat are brocolli, asparagus, romaine lettuce, butternut squash,, bell peppers, onions, zucchini. Only the avocados are non-organic. In regards to protein, I only only antibiiotic/hormone free chicken and turkey. I eat a little pork and beef, but not often. I eat natural lamb occasionally. I do eat eggs, but I notice that I get achy after eating them, so I limit my intake. I also, drink vegetable based protein smoothies. I rarely eat flour, but on occasion I like a muffin, but I am trying to eliminate the flour. I don’t eat lugumes often, but when I do, I eat orginic blackbeans. I also love peanut butter. My fruit intake consists of mostly organic apples, grapes, blueberries and strawberries. I used lemon or limes on my salads and drink mostly spring water and cook with RO water. I make ginger tea and try to have some with meals to improve digestion. I have yet to get the IgG, but I did have the IgE recently and it didn’t show any food allergies. They tested me for 75 or 85 foods. I am planning on getting the IgG done in the near future. I try and avoid parabens and sulfates in my hair and body products. Thanks
    PS: I have sleep issues. What is your opinion on getting my neurotransmitters tested? I was thinking about the test done via the urine samples.

      Bell peppers, flour, black beans, peanut butter and eggs are inflammatory and a “little bit” won’t help either. It is best if you remove them. You can improve a lot by diet alone. It is like being pregnant… Either you are pregnant or not. A little bit of something inflammatory for your body can cause an immune reaction that can take several months to calm down.

    Hi Dr. Segura, I’ve had low functioning adrenal for years and poor sleep on top of that which are probably interrelated. I’ve tried every herb, mineral, vitamin, hormone recommended and nothing has helped.

    Recently I ran across an article on Nrf2. It mentioned some supplements that activate the Nrf2 pathway. I ordered all the herbs they mentioned and I am currently on day 5 of supplementing and I have already noticed a big difference in my well being. As you probably know, Nrf2 reduces oxidative stress.

    Before i started my protocol for the Nrf2 activation I was waking up daily feeling completely drained. When I would wake up at 4am daily, I was super wide awake and couldn’t go back to sleep. Now when i wake up and am groggy and have been able to fall back asleep. Also previously I was not dreaming during sleep. My sleep study results showed that I was only going into stages 1 and 2 of sleep. Since I started this protocol I have had vivid dreams. Also, it seems that the inflammation that I have an extreme amount of, has subsided.

    I know it’s early, but i thought I’d share this.

      Hello Marie,

      You can use sun flower lecithin. The recipe will yield 12 oz which is equivalent to 355ml. If there is 12 grams per 355ml and you are aiming for a loading dose of 2,000 mg three times a day, that would be 4 tablespoons three times per day.

      Probably you will have to increase the dose as the home version is only a rough approximation. If there is any excess of vitamin C, your husband will have diarrhea.

  20. Roger Smith  January 17, 2017

    For some basic calculations that may make it easier to follow the above recipe:

    1 cup = 16 tablespoons (TBS),
    1.5 cups (as stated in this recipe) = 24 TBS
    and 1 tablespoon vitamin C equals 15.36 grams in weight

    Thus, 15.36 g Vitamin C / 24 TBS = 0.64 g vitamin C per tablespoon (or 640 mg) , you will need to take 9.3 TBS each day to achieve 6 grams liposomal vitamin C.

    The author triples the vitamin C sometimes, so 3 x ~16 g vitamin C / 24 TBS = 2 grams vitamin C per tablespoon (so you would need 3 TBS a day to achieve 6 g liposomal vitamin C that is supposedly equivalent to 50 g IV vitamin C).

    The belief that 6 g liposomal vitamin C is equivalent to 50 g IV vitamin C is largely anecdotal (see: http://www.naturalnews.com/042593_liposomal_vitamin_C_mega-dose_alternative_cancer_treatment.html ). There is no scientific evidence to support this comment.

    Some have attempted calculations regarding the relationship between oral-liposomal-IV vitamin C doses.

    “one gram of lypo C is equivalent to 10 grams of oral AA (hydrogen ascorbate), each gram of lipo C taken orally is equivalent to four grams of vitamin C IV” (see post #6 at: http://vitamincfoundation.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=7854).

    If this relationship is true then to achieve 50 g IV vitamin C one would need: 50g / 4 = 12.5 g of liposomal vitamin C).

    Other comments here suggest a 1:10 ratio for liposomal vitamin C. If true then 5-6 grams liposomal vitamin C would be close to the 50 g IV vitamin C dose.

    This gives a range of liposomal vitamin C between 6-12.5 g daily.

    For 6 grams taken in 3 divided doses daily ( eg. 2 g taken 3 times a day)
    For 12.5 g taken in 3 divided doses daily ( eg. 4.1 g taken 3 times a day)

    Hope these details help those who may be in need. God bless!

    Thanks for the information. I’m not sure what actually constitutes a dosage. How much should one take to get approxamently 2,0000 mg of vitamin C?

    reply
    • roger  January 25, 2017

      You asked “how much should one take to get approximately 2,000 mg of vitamin C?”
      A 2 g dose orally is low, relatively low doses eg. 500-1000 mg of vitamin C achieve 90% or greater serum levels for the dose amount. So a divided oral dose will reach their intended blood plasma concentrations.

      Are you referring to liposomal, oral or IV vitamin C?

      The method of vitamin C exposure by different routes makes a big difference to the amount absorbed to achieve a 2,000 mg (or 2 g dose).

      I am not a medical doctor and my advice is my understanding of the literature I have read which you should not follow blindly. I offer no suggested dosing regime but only my thoughts on the subject.

      The answer is a little more complicated as it is the blood plasma concentration of vitamin C we are interested in when using vitamin C as a pro-oxidant. Often people try to compare the amount of IV vitamin C used to the amount of liposomal vitamin C that will give a similar blood concentration but there is little a dearth of data in this area.
      The majority of oral vitamin C is not absorbed with most passing through the body. Bioavailability of oral vitamin C is well known at 18-20%.
      However, 90% of liposomal C can enter cells at a cellular level shielded from the GI tract. Dr. Steve Hickey (in his book titled, “Ascorbate”), states if you take liposomal vitamin C frequently throughout the day, you can achieve much higher blood plasma levels of Vitamin C – despite Vitamin C being rapidly excreted. He suggests taking it every hour or two, you can maintain a much higher plasma level than if you just dose it once a day.

      If you are looking for a 2 gram oral dose of vitamin C equivalent you can (according to the bioavailability difference) take a 1/5 amount of liposomal vitamin C in a single dose. Anecdotal evidence from those using liposomal vitamin C therapy found that liposome encapsulated vitamin C, taken orally, was roughly 10 times more effectively clinically in resolving infectious diseases than the IV vitamin C (work done by Dr. Levy).

      If this is accurate it suggests this 2 g oral dose equivalent may be even lower at 1/10 the liposomal vitamin C needed. Orally you can take several doses of vitamin C (well over 2 g if tolerated in divided doses) and get the 2 g amount absorbed eventually through the GI tract. However, many people end up with GI tract problems with high oral doses which make liposomal vitamin C a better option as it is better tolerated.
      Hope these thoughts help.

      PS. The IV dose as proxidant therapy in the peer review literature can vary widely between 15 g to 65 g (or higher) amounts. IV vitamin C as a dose is usually given over a 2-3 hour time period by supervised and trained medical staff. Blood plasma of vitamin C. Studies of vitamin C blood levels have found that they peak from 2 to 3 hours after ingesting a liposomal product.

      reply
  22. Roger Smith  January 17, 2017

    Anyone interested in IV and liposomal vitamin C should read the peer review research paper published in CMAJ (Sebastian J. Padayatty, Hugh D. Riordan, Stephen M. Hewitt, Arie Katz, L. John Hoffer, Mark Levine. March 28, 2006. Intravenously administered vitamin C as cancer therapy: three cases. vol. 174 no. 7., 937-942.

    They review 3 cancer patients taking vitamin C IV usually 2 times a week but with different doses for different lengths of times:

    Patient 1 – lung cancer, took 65 g IV vitamin C twice per week starting in October 1996 and continuing for 10 months. vitamin C achieved (brief) cancer remission, patient lived for 5 more years.

    Patient 2 – bladder tumour with multiple satellite tumours, 30 g of IV vitamin C twice per week for 3 months, followed by 30 g once every 1–2 months for 4 years, interspersed with periods of 1–2 months during which he had more frequent infusions. Patient lived cancer free for at least an additional 9 years.

    Patient 3 – paraspinal muscle and bone invasion B-cell lympoma, 15 g of vitamin C twice per week for about 2 months, 15 g once to twice per week for about 7 months, and then 15 g once every 2–3 months for about 1 year.This patient also underwent radiation therapy.The patient remained in normal health 10 years after the diagnosis of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, never having received chemotherapy.

    Patients also used other various supplements and alternative treatments (which may confound the vitamin C outcomes).

    High dose Vitamin C by IV or liposomal administration can work to reduce tumour growth for some people with differing cancer cell types. The IV vitamin C used had a wide range (15 g to 65g) and widely varying time durations.

    I have cellulitis on my palm, began as excema due to accidental gluten. The first symptoms started 19 days ago. It got quite bad and has improved slowly over the last 4 days of natural “antibiotics” ( olive leaf, GSE, oil of oregano) and 2-5 G daily of liposomal C. The progress is not quick enough and I may have slid backwards last night too. How much Lipo C for worst case ( blood poisoning) infection should In be taking? How should I divide doses? I’m using livon labs. Thank you.

    Hi there…just a bit confused and so maybe somebody could set me right. Liposomal recipe states that you put in one tablespoon of vitamin c which is 6gms but the end product says it provides 12gms or 12000mg? How does the amount put in suddenly double in strength? Also when you make the stronger version of three tablespoons i.e. 18gms of vitamin c , it says the end recipe yields 16gms per cup or in this case the recipe actually makes 1 and a half cups so that would be 24gms? How does 18gm turn into 24gms?
