LivOn Labs Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C™, 30 packets
Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C™ has been called "Vitamin C
on steroids!" This is because it utilizes state-of-the-art
Liposomal Encapsulation Technology (LET). LET allows the
nano-scopic spheres of vitamin C to...
Starting at the manufacturing stage, several
additives and processes can limit the digestibility and
bio-availability of Vitamin C. Often the product is buffered (to
make it easier on the stomach), has binders and fillers added so it
will stay together, and often times is “cooked” or “esterified” to
extend shelf life.
While in the bottle, free-radicals in the air can
oxidize your Vitamin C. The longer it sits, the more oxidized it
becomes. Then, the enzymes in your saliva, the digestive juices in
your stomach, the bile salts in your intestines, and even the
organisms in your G.I. tract can further degrade the Vitamin C
before it ever gets absorbed in the small intestine. Plus, if you
take more than 2 to 3 grams of traditional Vitamin C, the ascorbic
acid in the intestines can cause gastric distress -- gas, cramps,
and diarrhea. Often Vitamin C will be eliminated via your very
“Smart” Lyposomal Nano-Spheres™ avoid the
degradation and discomfort associated with traditional forms of
First, each uni-dose of Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C™ is
individually sealed in its own packet — protected from the elements
that could degrade the supplement before you use it.
Secondly, the sub-microscopic liposomes
surrounding the vitamin C are virtually impervious to degrading
substances in your digestive system.
Thirdly, these “Smart” Lyposomal Nano-Spheres™
protect your lower G.I. Tract - hence, no gastric upset, no
diarrheal flushing effect.
Lastly, the liposomes quickly journey to the
bloodstream and, circulated throughout the body and "grabbed" by
the damaged cells that need the phophatidylcholine and the vitamin
We believe that humans used to manufacture all the
vitamin C they needed. The fact is, we all have the necessary gene
to produce a substance called L-gulonolactone oxidase (GLO). GLO is
the only missing component in the human liver required to make
vitamin C. Unfortunately, almost all of us have a defect in that
gene that prevents the production of GLO and therefore prevents the
synthesis of vitamin C.
“Smart” Lyposomal Nano-Spheres™ deliver the
undegraded vitamin C you need, in a form that is quickly
distributed and easily assimilated by the cells in your body that
need it most!
As a dietary supplement take one to two packets
per day for heart, liver, kidney, circulatory, glandular, and
cellular health. For best results, snip or tear the notched end off
the packet, squeeze into one or more ounces of your favorite cool
beverage, drink on an empty stomach, and wait at least 15 minutes
before eating. We do not recommend mixing the product with a hot
beverage or with any high-speed blenders or food processors.
Storage Instructions: Store in a
cool, dry place. Do not freeze or place the product in direct
sunlight for extended periods of time. If you open an individual
packet and do not wish to consume all of the product, reseal the
open packet in an airtight bag or plastic wrap and refrigerate
until you're ready to take it, or up to 24 hours.
Shelf Life: 18 months from the
date of manufacture. The manufacture date and the expiration date
is stamped on the bottom of each carton. The expiration date is
also imprinted along the edge of each packet as EXP0614. This
means: Expires: June 2014.
Special Notes: Vitamin C in any
form can lessen the blood-thinning effects of Coumadin or Warfarin,
resulting in a less prolonged prothrombin time. LivOn Labs urges
anybody on either of these medications to supplement vitamin C and
any other antioxidants under the guidance of their physicians only,
so that the desired prolongation of prothrombin time can be
achieved over time. Generally, most individuals on such medications
can successfully take desirable amounts of vitamin C, but the
amount of their Coumadin or Warfarin typically needs to be
increased slightly, with initially more frequent checking of the
prothrombin time by their physicians to assure the desirable degree
of anticoagulation is achieved and maintained.

How much Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C™
should someone take at a time?
ANSWER: How much someone can
take, and how much someone should take are two very different
questions. As far as published studies are concerned, no toxicity
level has ever been found with vitamin C or Essential
Phospholipids. Several customers have reported taking 15-20 packets
in an 8-hour period without any side effects.
It is recommended to take one to two packets per
day for general health maintenance. If it is necessary to increase
beyond that level, we recommend increasing the dosage by 1-2
packets per day until the desired dosage level is reached.
Are there any side effects to taking
Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C™?
ANSWER: While there are no known
adverse side-effects from taking Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C™, it is
still possible to experience the "Herxheimer Response." Among its
many properties, high dose vitamin C is one of the world's most
potent broad-spectrum anti-microbials. Even when your body is not
showing any symptoms, it may be carrying a significant pathogen
burden. Vitamin C can attack and kill these viral, fungal, and
bacterial pathogens in large numbers.
When this happens, your body's normal processes
for ridding itself of these dead microbes can become overtaxed.
This often triggers secondary mechanisms resulting in "Herxheimer
Response" or "die-off" symptoms such as headache, diarrhea, gas or
bloating, skin rash, and others. While these symptoms may be
uncomfortable, they typically disappear in 2 to 3 days as your body
clears out the backlog of dead germs.
To get through the "die-off" period, we recommend
addressing whatever symptoms you are experiencing. For a headache,
take your usual headache remedy; for gas and bloating, take
whatever you would normally take, etc. It is also a good idea to
stop taking Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C™ for a day or so until the
symptoms are gone. When you resume the vitamin C, start with only
half the dose you were using when the symptoms first appeared.
Gradually increase to the desired amount.
Are there any supplements or
medications that should not be taken with Lypo-Spheric Vitamin
ANSWER: We do not recommend
taking any form of vitamin C with prescription Coumadin or
How do you use the Lypo-Spheric
ANSWER: Simply S-Q-U-E-E-Z-E the
contents of one foil packet into your favorite juice or other cool
beverage. The gelatin-like liposomes disperse with a stir and add
little or no taste to your drink. Drink on an empty stomach and
wait at least 15 minutes before eating. We do not recommend mixing
the product with a hot beverage or with any high-speed blenders or
