What is the difference between Buffered Vitamin C and Liposomal C?Updated 6 months ago

Buffered Vitamin C is essentially ascorbic acid that is blended with an alkaline mineral. This fusion tempers the acidity of ascorbic acid, mitigating but not entirely eliminating the possibility of stomach discomfort that can arise from the interaction between natural stomach acids and ascorbic acid.

On the other hand, Liposomal C is ascorbic acid encapsulated within liposomes, which are microscopic vesicles composed of materials resembling the structure of cell membranes. This encapsulation facilitates the seamless transportation of Vitamin C through the digestive system and into the bloodstream, optimizing its delivery to the cells. A noteworthy benefit is that Liposomal C offers a higher concentration of Vitamin C per capsule compared to Buffered Vitamin C.

Each Liposomal C capsule contains 500 mg of Vitamin C. We generally recommend a daily intake of 1000 mg. However, if you're new to Liposomal C, it’s prudent to start with a lower dosage and gradually increase it. During periods when you might be exposed to viruses or if you are under the weather, you can elevate the dosage, but we advise distributing it evenly throughout the day to maximize absorption and minimize any potential stomach sensitivity.
