The secret to the products high absorbency claim can actually be found in the name - Lypo-Spheric.
Liposomes are double-layered bubbles that are scientifically proven to act as a superior delivery system for nutrients to cells throughout the body while also protecting the valuable nutrients inside than other oral delivery forms of unencapsulated vitamin C such as tables and powders.
Liposomes are tiny spheres made from essential phospholipids which form a double-layer membrane around active vitamin C, and protect it from destruction while in the digestive system.
The phospholipids found in the product are derived from highly purified soy lecithin. The refining process is designed to remove as many of the proteins and other phytochemicals found in whole, unprocessed soy beans. What this extraction process leaves is a high percentage of phospholipids which are essentially fatty acids.
These fatty acids create the outer-layer just as oil separates from vinegar.
The liposome membrane helps with absorption by bypassing the body’s active transport system and incorporating itself directly into the cell membrane. Traditional tablet and powder forms of vitamin C are typically absorbed in the small intestine. This hampers absorption as the nutrient requires sodium-dependent vitamin C co-transporter proteins - after the age of 25 these proteins are less and less readily available to the body and as vitamin C is water-soluble, much of the benefits flow out of the body in urine.
Liposomal nutrients on the other hand, achieve maximum absorption in the cells by passing through the intestinal wall and into the bloodstream without relying on transport systems.
