After reading about the benefits of liposomal vitamin c from various sources I decided I would give it a try. After researching various products I discovered that liposomal vitamin c can made made at home with some simple ingredients and equipment.
So what is liposomal vitamin c?
Liposomal vitamin C is vitamin C that is encapsulated by liposomes. Encapsulated vitamin C aids the body’s absorption of the supplement and allows a higher concentration of it to be distributed into cells and the bloodstream than with traditional vitamin C tablets etc
Below is the recipe I have used for my first batches and will continue to tweak it along the way.
I created this blog to share my experiences. When I create my next batch I will take some pics of the process and the effects experienced.
Ingredients and equipement
Stainless Steel Ultrasonic Jewellery Cleaner
100% Pure Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C )
Distilled Water (No tap water because of contaminations)
Hand Held Blender
First of all, at least 30 minutes before you start blending anything, you should:
1. Pour 3 Tbsp. Lecithin into 1 cup of distilled water and soak at room temperature. This allows the granules should be soften.
2. In a narrow, tall (over 7 inch tall) container i used the hand held blender, to blend the soaked Lecithin for a few minutes.
3. Now dissolve the 1 Tbsp. of Vitamin C crystals in ½ cup of cool water. Keep stirring until all the crystals disappear.
4. Combine the Lecithin and Vitamin C mixtures together with the blender.
5. Clean the sonic cleaner is clean by filling with water to and switch on. Change water and repeat until it’s clean. Empty the water and wipe dry.
6. Pour the blended solution (step 4) into the sonic cleaner. Keep the lid open; use a clean glass or plastic stirring stick (straw) to stir the mixture as often as you can for 30 minutes.
Stirring makes sure as much of the liquid as possible is exposed closely to the sonic element where the encapsulation process happens.
At the end of 30 minutes, all the foam has disappeared. When done you will have a mix that is about the colour of milk. There will be some settling but shouldn’t be much, less than 5% of the mix or so.
7. Pour mix into a resealable glass jar and store in your refrigerator.
This makes about 12 grams (12000mg.) of liposomal vitamin C product.
At 70% encapsulation efficiency, 8400 mg would be of the LET type. This solution will keep, acceptably, at room temperature for 3 to 4 days however best to keep refrigerated.
Dosage: I am still experimenting with the dosage and I started with 2 teaspoons twice a day.
