Why LivOn's Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C?
Most ordinary forms of oral Vitamin C - tablets, capsules, powders, liquids and even the Vitamin C from your diet - are not processed and absorbed efficiently by your body. As a result, much of this Vitamin C is never transferred into your bloodstream and even less of it makes it into your cells where it's needed most. In fact, when you take 1,000 mg or more of regular oral Vitamin C, more than half of it is digested and passed as waste by your body.*
LivOn Labs' patented Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C encapsulates the C molecules in liposomes made from Essential Phospholipids, which protect the C from destruction by your digestive juices. Within minutes of taking Lypo-Spheric™ Vitamin C, liposomes filled with Vitamin C are transported directly into the bloodstream, and into the cells.
LivOn Labs technology makes all the difference
LivOn Laboratories was the first company to utilize a highly sophisticated technology which originated in the pharmaceutical industry. With LivOn's Lypo-Spheric products your body receives essential phospholipids as well as an important nutritional supplement ...delivering a powerful "1-2 punch". This liposome encapsulated form of Vitamin C is the first choice of people who really understand bioavailability and the importance of high-dose vitamin C. Other forms of vitamin C succumb to absorption barriers that vastly limit the level of vitamin C that can enter the bloodstream. Lypo-Spheric™ Vitamin C crashes through these barriers to get high potency vitamin C where you need it most, to your cells.

Encapsulating Vitamin C in Essential Phospholipids Gives Your Body a Powerful 1 - 2 Punch.
You get the benefits of Vitamin C and help satisfy the body's ever-growing need for essential phospholipids including Phosphatidylcholine (PC). PC is one of the most important phospholipids required for many vital functions in maintaining a healthy cardiovascular, reproductive, immune, and nervous system.*
Frequently Asked Questions:
Where does your Vitamin C come from? Should I be worried about it being contaminated with pesticides?
The Vitamin C LivOn Labs uses in these supplements is synthesized from non-GMO corn glucose. Pesticides aren’t a concern in these products as they are not whole foods or made directly from a plant. The Vitamin C synthesized from corn are only single molecules. If there is any type of pesticide use, it will be removed during processes that extract the glucose from the plant source. The only molecules that make it into these supplements are those of Vitamin C, not any pesticides.
Why is this so much more expensive than other forms of Vitamin C?
The premium ingredients that we use to make these liposomes are scarce, thus are more expensive than the ingredients used to make capsules, powders, and tablets. The process of encapsulating a Vitamin C molecule into a liposome also requires significantly more sophisticated machinery and trained personnel to perform.
Why should I take Vitamin C for skin instead of applying it topically?
Vitamin C is required to produce collagen, the protein that is responsible for firm skin. It exists in the middle layer of your skin that topical serums cannot reach. Taking oral Vitamin C also gives you so many of the added antioxidant and other health benefits that can contribute to health skin from within.
Why is this better than my vitamin C effervescent drink?
Well-known Vitamin C supplements marketed as quick immune support often contain up to 7 times more sugar than Vitamin C. Because Vitamin C and sugar depend on the same nutrient transporters to be absorbed in your cells, you will absorb very little of the vitamin content in these supplements.
Are there any side effects?
Some customers have reported a burst of energy that can interfere with sleep when taken in the evening.
Don’t I get enough Vitamin C through my diet?
The Recommended Daily Allowance only includes enough Vitamin C to avoid deficiency, e.g., scurvy. Many researchers as well as medical and nutrition professionals believe that much higher Vitamin C consumption is required for optimal health.
What is the difference between this and a Vitamin C Complex?
A Vitamin C Complex, also often referred to as a natural Vitamin C, contains Vitamin C as well as other substances. The Vitamin C in these supplements is chemically no different than isolated Vitamin C used in LivOn Labs' and other Vitamin C supplements.
Why do you use ascorbic acid instead of Vitamin C?
Ascorbic acid is the chemical name for Vitamin C. They are synonymous. We use sodium ascorbate, which is ascorbic acid and sodium.
¹ A recent clinical trial by world-renowned vitamin C expert and pharmacologist, Steve Hickey, PhD, shows that Liposomal Vitamin C is able to produce serum levels of vitamin C nearly double those thought theoretically possible with any oral form of vitamin C. This astounding level of bioavailability not only dramatically increases the amount of vitamin C in the blood, but recent thermographic microscopy provides visible evidence that it also aids its entry into individual cells.
