Altrient® C is the first choice of people who really understand bioavailability and the importance of high-dose vitamin C. Right out of the gate, all other forms of vitamin C rapidly crash into an absorption barrier that vastly limits the level of vitamin C that can enter the bloodstream… and
the vitamin C that doesn’t get absorbed, gets flushed. (Important note: all the vitamin C in your food is just as restricted by this absorption barrier.)In stark contrast, the smart liposomes that encapsulate Altrient® C quickly slip across the intestinal wall and into the blood. That’s because they are able to completely bypass a very restrictive nutrient transport system that radically limits the bioavailability of all non-liposome encapsulated forms of vitamin C.
A recent clinical trial by world-renowned vitamin C expert and pharmacologist, Steve Hickey, PhD, shows that Altrient® 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.

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 1,000mg or more of regular oral Vitamin C, more than half of it is digested and passed as waste by your body.*

Until now...

LivOnLabs' 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.
Our 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.

1,000 mg Phospholipids (from soy lecithin)
Sachets per Carton: 30 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 sachet and do not wish to consume all of the product, reseal the open sachet 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 sachet 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. Altrient® 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. 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.

Dosage and Use: As a food supplement, take one sachet 1-2 times per day. For best results, snip or tear the notched end off the sachet, squeeze into 30-60ml of filtered or spring water, or your favourite cool beverage, then swirl and drink on an empty stomach, at least 15 minutes before eating. The food supplement will NOT dissolve in liquid. We recommend you swallow the product in one gulp. We do not recommend mixing the product with a hot beverage or with any high-speed blenders or food processors.

So what are liposomes, exactly?

Liposomes are bilayer (double-layer), liquid-filled bubbles made from phospholipids. Over 50 years ago, researchers discovered that these spheres could be filled with therapeutic agents and used to protect and deliver these agents into the body and even into specific cells of the body.

The bilayer structure of liposomes is nearly identical to the bilayer construction of the cell membranes that surround each of the cells in the human body. This occurs because of the unique composition of phospholipids. The phosphate (source of "phospho" in phospholipid) head of phospholipids is hydrophilic — it loves water — whereas the fatty-acid tails (lipids) are hydrophobic — they hate water.

Split liposome showing vitamin C encapsulation

When phospholipids find themselves in a water-based solution, the hydrophobic tails quickly move to distance themselves from the liquid just like oil separates from vinegar. So, as all the tails turn inward and all the heads turn toward the liquid, they form a double-layered membrane.


Liposome cutaway showing bilayer structure
This diagram of a liposome cutaway shows how the tails of phospholipids turn inward to form a bilayer membrane, and encapsulate a therapeutic agent.

Although research has not clearly shown how the therapeutic agents in a liposome are actually released, there are a couple of theories. One theory suggests that the phospholipids are processed in the liver as fats and that this process releases the vitamin C. Another theory proposes that cells all over the body, hungry for phospholipid materials to repair cell membranes and other cellular structures, "steal" these materials from the liposome allowing their contents to leak out.

Quite possibly both processes occur. In any case, the therapeutic value and greatly increased delivery of liposome-encapsulated drugs and nutrients has been scientifically confirmed countless times. At present, liposomes are the most effective oral way to deliver nutrients.

Phospholipids are the primary building blocks of cellular membranes. These membranes are the "containers" that hold the living matter within each cell. They also give definition, shape, and protection to many of the substructures (organelles within the cell like the nucleus and mitochondria) within our cells.

In addition to functioning as a skin for each cell — keeping the insides in and the outsides out — phospholipid membranes provide protection from chemicals and pathogens that can derail and/or destroy the necessary life functions that take place within each cell. While performing this function, phospholipid membranes are subject to constant attack from free radicals (oxidants), pathogens, and toxins.

In order to repair the structural damage caused by the continual barrage of toxic substances and pathogens, your body requires a constant supply of phospholipids. The body can synthesize some phospholipid compounds but others must be supplied by the diet. Phospholipids that can only be obtained through dietary intake are called "essential phospholipids."

Anatomy of Phosphatidylcholine
Anatomy of a phosphatidylcholine molecule. All phospholipids have a phosphate group and fatty acid chains connected by a glycerol group. Phosphatidylcholine, a class of essential phospholipids, has two distinguishing characteristics: 1) a choline head and 2) one of the fatty acid chains is an omega-6 fatty acid. (KEY — Gray: carbon atoms; Teal: hydrogen atoms; Blue: oxygen atoms; Violet: phosphorus atom; Gold: nitrogen atom.)

At the basic level, phospholipids are a phosphate group (phospho) attached to fatty acids (lipids) by means of a glycerol group.

Unlike phosphates, which are attracted to water (hydrophilic), fatty acids are repelled by water (hydrophobic). It is this very love/hate relationship with water that allows phospholipids to form cellular membranes — and liposomes as well.

As phospholipids are exposed to water-based solutions, they automatically align themselves in a double-layer (bilayer) configuration - phosphates toward the water and fatty acids away from the water.

One of the most important and prominent phospholipids in cell membranes is called phosphatidylcholine (PC) [pronounced FOSS-fah-tide-al-KOH-lean]. At birth up to 90% of cellular membranes are made up of PC. As humans age, the percentage of PC in their cellular membranes can decrease to about 10%. This fact leads many to recommend consistent supplementation with this essential phospholipid.

Intact PC — as well as its essential fatty acid and choline components — is required for many vital functions in the cardiovascular, reproductive, immune, and nervous systems. PC and its components are needed for the synthesis of important messenger molecules called prostaglandins which, among other functions, regulate the contraction and relaxation of muscles. Choline is required for the synthesis of intracellular messenger molecules including the neurotransmitters that allow nerve cells to communicate with muscles and each other, and are essential for proper heart and brain function.

The liposomes used for Lypo-Spheric™ supplements made from essential phospholipids that include a high percentage of Phosphatidylcholine. These liposomes not only provide optimum protection and superior transport for the Lypo-Spheric™ nutrients, they also help satisfy the body's need for PC, omega-6 fatty acids, and choline.

 

“That little swig of juice and Altrient C are probably the most important items I consume each day. I used Altrient ME every day to enjoy the long lasting effects of the natural and powerful energy boost that Altrient ME can make you feel. It doesn’t create a feeling of shakiness or jitters at all either, just a very natural and long lasting amount of energy” – Rebecca at Love2EncourageYou

 

“Ever since I started using Altrient as a part of my daily supplements I have seen an increase in my energy throughout the day and during my workouts. The Altrient products give me a “kick start” to my day, I wouldnt train without them” – Tim Donegan

“I have been taking Altrient C & ME since just before the 2012 Regionals as well as during the Games and have seen a huge impact on my recovery and overall health. I am always looking for the best product out there that will assist me with improved health & performance and I feel that Altrient C & ME are doing that for me.”

Vitamin C [non-liposomal] bioavailability decreases with dose size
As dose size increases, bioavailabiity decreases dramatically. The authors express this finding by stating that 98% of a 20 mg oral dose of [non-liposome-encapsulated] vitamin C is bioavailable (enters the bloodstream) whereas only 16% of a 12,000 mg dose does so.

Bioavailability of [non-liposome-encapsulated] vitamin C
Based on previous recommended daily allowance (RDA) studies by the National Institutes of Health, author suggests that a 200 mg daily intake of vitamin C is sufficient to provide tissue saturation. By implication, any additional vitamin C would not be used or bioavailable. He does also suggest that smokers and those in disease states may have a higher requirement for vitamin C.

Bioavailability of (non-liposomal) vitamin C decreases rapidly with dose size
Authors report very rapid decline in bioavailability [of non-liposome-encapsulated vitamin C] with dose size. The "steep portion of the curve" starts between 30 mg and 100 mg of daily dose. Based on their findings, they suggest that "vitamin C daily doses above 400 mg have no evident value." This conclusion is based on the faulty presupposition that the appearance of vitamin C in the urine indicates all bodily tissues are saturated and the body requires no additional vitamin C. This assumption is clearly refuted by Hickey, et al. in his bookAscorbate: The Science of Vitamin C referenced above.
