The well-known vitamin C expert, cardiologist Dr. Thomas Levy, talks about liposomal technology:
Altrient liposomal Vitamin C has almost 100% bioavailability
Although the great health benefits of vitamin C have been known for a long time, a large number of people can still be found to be deficient.
Replenishment of vitamin C through supplements is a good choice. Unfortunately, it is difficult for the body to absorb large amounts of standard vitamin C, due to its inability to withstand digestive processes. At best, the body can absorb up to 200 mg of vitamin C at a time, and the rest is eliminated through urine.
Much higher doses can cause stomach upset, including bloating, cramping and digestive problems. Until recently, intravenous administration of vitamin C proved to be the most effective route for absorption, but this method is expensive and impractical.
Altrient, with its state-of-the-art liposomal encapsulation technology (LET), allows vitamin C to be taken orally, but with increased absorption, by binding and transporting it within protective membranes, called liposomes.
These tiny liposomal bubbles, made up of double-layered phospholipid molecules (similar to the membranes of our cells), protect the contents they carry and bypass the digestive juices to deliver vitamin C directly to the cells.
This unique delivery method protects vitamin C from oxidation and degradation, avoiding gastrointestinal stress, and ensures almost 100% bioavailability.
Altrient guarantees the high quality and concentration of liposomes in all its products. Liposomes cannot be seen with the naked eye, but their presence can be confirmed with an electron microscope.
The manufacturer therefore invests heavily in independent research to confirm that statements and information about their products are supported by accurate scientific data using modern technology.
A study comparing Altrient C with ascorbic acid powder revealed three positive benefits:
- Altrient C compared to ascorbic acid powder enabled faster absorption of vitamin C in the cells
- Altrient C allowed vitamin C to stay in the bloodstream for a longer period of time
- Altrient C allowed vitamin C to remain in the blood at its highest level 30% longer
Caution is required when purchasing liposomal supplements. Recently, there has been a rise in brands selling “liposomal” products, which do not contain liposomes. According to Dr. Levi, it could rather be said that they contain vitamin C dissolved in some kind of emulsion.
To identify real liposomes, it would be necessary to look at them under an electron microscope.
However, there are recognizable signs that can confirm whether we are getting the best quality delivery of liposomes:
- Consistency – a thicker consistency means more liposomes, and a thin consistency means fewer liposomes
- The formula should contain an equal amount of vitamin C (1000 mg) and phospholipids (1000 mg).
- Solubility – real liposomes do not dissolve in water
- Stability – liposomes cannot be mixed with hot drinks
- LivOn Lab logo – guarantee for quality in liposomal technology since 2004
