In this post, I teach you how how to make homemade liposomal vitamin C in your own kitchen.
Everyone knows that vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is good for health. Vitamin C is one of the best things you can take to help fight colds, flus, viruses and bacterial infections.
Liposomal vitamin C is vastly superior to regular vitamin C (ascorbic acid) because it turns a water soluble vitamin into a fat soluble vitamin, which makes the vitamin C more absorbable and bioavailable.
Why Make Liposomal Vitamin C
Not only is it cheaper, but liposomal vitamin C is also more absorbable than regular vitamin C supplements. This method of taking vitamin C is actually superior to IV vitamin C because it helps your body absorb collagen better and more quickly.
And with these easy-to-procure ingredients and simple instructions, you can make your own homemade liposomal vitamin C right at home in a mason jar.
So don't wait any longer to give your body the vitamins it needs, try this homemade liposomal vitamin C recipe today.
Not All Liposomal Vitamin C Recipes Work
But not so fast – you can't just use any DIY liposomal vitamin C recipe you find online.
Most recipes you find online for liposomal vitamin C don't work. This is because they are using the wrong ultrasonic units. I know, it's shocking!
My Experience with Liposomal Vitamin C
Just before C0VID came on the scene, I went out and bought an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner to make liposomal vitamin C at home.
I got one of the C0VID strains and was sick for over a week.
Then I made this liposomal vitamin C. I took some of the infamous horse paste with a capital I (you know the one I'm talking about), and this DIY liposomal vitamin C – and badda bing, badda bang, I was completely cured within a few days.
Health Benefits of Vitamin C
Most of us know the many health benefits of vitamin C. It is an essential nutrient and powerful antioxidant that helps support a healthy immune system, protect your cells from free radical damage, and promote optimal health.
Also, it helps your body absorb other vital nutrients like iron and calcium. And it helps your body utilize collagen.
Why Liposomal Vitamin C?
However, ascorbic acid is not so easy to absorb, and it doesn't stay in the body very long – only about an hour.
Everyone knows vitamin C is critical when are sick. But taking regular it in in small doses really won't cut it when you're fighting an infection.
Many of you know that you need to megadose when you feel a cold or flu coming on – it's called the Vitamin D3 hammer.
I'll write about that in a future post, but essentially you take like 20,000-30,000 IU of vitamin D in one day to boost immunity when you are feeling run down. In my experience, this really works to fight colds and flu.
When taking vitamin C, your body can only absorb so much vitamin C at a time (about 1,000 mg per hour). So what I've always done when I am sick is take 1,000 mg vitamin C every hour.
Why Liposomal Vitamin C is Better Than Regular Vitamin C
A better way to take vitamin C is to take liposomal vitamin C.
The main reason: it is much more easily absorbed and used by the body.
In other words, it's more bioavailable (available for your body to use). See this pubmed study.
For the Nerds: Why Liposomal Vitamin C?
Okay, for the nerds in my audience, and hey, I'm a nerd, too – and proud of it!
Here's why you really need liposomal vitamin C... I'll explain it very simply:
- Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin.
- Your cell membranes are fat-soluble.
- The water-soluble vitamin C can't easily be absorbed into the fat-soluble cell ... because yeah, that's right, oil and water don’t mix.
- Because vitamin C is water-soluble, the absorption rate is only about 20%. I know, pathetic!
- The other 80% of vitamin C accumulates in the colon. Akk! No bueno!
- Enter the liposome. Liposomes are “nano-size,” in other words, microscopic, fat-soluble vehicles that carry it past the digestive system and directly into your cells. Ooh, yeah baby!
- Now you get 80% absorption rate instead of 20%.
- I got your sundae with whipped cream... are you ready for the cherry on top? This method of taking vitamin C is superior to IV vitamin C.
Yep, you heard that right.
Nobody wants to have to go get IV vitamin C when you can do this hardcore nerd sh*t at home.
Liposomal Vitamin C Helps You Absorb Collagen
Liposomal vitamin C is not just helpful for building immunity. It also helps you absorb collagen.
Everyone is taking collagen these days, and I think that's very smart. Collagen is one of my top five supplements I think we all need to be taking.
These are all the supplements I currently take:
You Can't Absorb Collagen Without Vitamin C
Collagen is something that declines as we age and that's why we get saggy, crepey skin and wrinkles and thinning hair.
If you want to look younger – and who doesn't – supplement with collagen or make your own homemade bone broth and use it in soups, stews, sauces, cook your rice and beans in it, etc. I'll post my recipes here soon, I promise.
But here's the thing... you need vitamin C to absorb and utilize collagen.
Real Results with Collagen and Vitamin C
I actually have a friend who had some hormonal problems and her hair was thinning badly. She started taking collagen powder and vitamin C tablets together, and her hair grew back. Years later and she just told me the other day, her hair is thicker than ever.
Danny Roddy, author of Hair Like a Fox, is another one who swears by collagen and vitamin C. He also grew his hair back, and solved a bunch of other health issues.
Danny is also on YouTube – he's one of my very favorite nutrition nerds. I am not as smart as he is, but I am good at simplifying the sciency talk to something we can all understand.
Ha! I watch Danny and Chris Masterjohn so ya'll don't have to. Although do go watch them if you're not afraid of the science stuff. They are both great.
Also,I gotta give Chris Masterjohn props. Follow him on Instagram until he gets axed. He is protesting the mandates and speaking out constantly – I love it! Thank you, Chris, for being a patriot and a hero.
Unlike so many of those other wanker influencers who aren't saying sh*t because they're afraid they're gonna get censored. Guess what? Unless you get censored, you ain't cool.
Stop Wasting Money on Collagen
So, anyway, in a nutshell, you need to buy a commercial grade ultrasonic unit pronto (see details below – don't worry, it's under $100) and make homemade liposomal vitamin C.
And then you will be able to grow thick healthy hair, have less wrinkles and have plump, youthful skin. Not to mention kick any cold or virus to the curb like a NINJA.
Because otherwise, why are you spending so much money on fancy skincare and all that collagen? It's going to waste!
Without the vitamin C (and the right kind of vitamin C,) you can't absorb or utilize all that collagen. You might as well flush it down the toilet.
Why Make Homemade Liposomal Vitamin C?
If you don't want to make homemade liposomal vitamin C, you can certainly buy liposomal vitamin C at health food stores or online (if you do, make sure you get a non-GMO variety).
If I didn't make liposomal vitamin C and wanted to buy it instead, I would buy the Dr. Mercola liposomal vitamin C on Amazon – because:
1) This liposomal vitamin C is non-GMO
2) I trust Dr. Mercola implicitly, and
3) he needs our support since he has been so heavily censored – and the world needs him right now!
However, buying liposomal vitamin C is more expensive. And liposomal vitamin C is so easy to make at home for a lot less.
Liposomal Vitamin C is Better Than Taking Pills
Another reason to make liquid liposomal vitamin C: it's easier than taking vitamin C tablets or capsules.
I am not a big fan of taking pills. Don't get me wrong, I do take some supplements as pills and capsules. We have 2 full cupboards overloaded with vitamins and minerals and other nutritional supplements.
But I am not a good pill taker. I'd much rather consume my nutrition as food. This liposomal vitamin C is easy to add to smoothies or just take as a shot. I'm actually going to be posting a whole series of posts of recipes for high-vitamin, anti-parasitic cocktails.
What better way to take your vitamins and anti-parasite, splke-pr0tein-whackers than in booze drinks?
For those of you who don't drink, I'll be making them non-alcoholic versions – so make sure you sign up for my free email updates.
By the way, Dr. Mercola also has a liquid version of liposomal vitamin C, which you can add to smoothies or take as a shot if you don't like taking pills.
But if you prefer to make it yourself like I do, keep reading for the recipe...
But first, the recipe notes. There are always the recipe notes that you must read first because as you will see, God is in the details.
Lecithin Granules or Sunflower Granules?
Non-GMO sunflower or soy lecithin granules are essential for making liposomal vitamin C.
This ingredient acts as an emulsifier, meaning it helps to combine the oil and water components of the recipe, creating a smooth and consistent mixture that your body can easily absorb.
Because liposomes are made with phospholipids, lecithin is essential for providing the necessary structure and stability to keep the liposomes intact.
I am using non-GMO lecithin granules for now, just because that's what I bought. I plan to switch to sunflower granules, because I think they are better for you (not a big fan of soy).
Ascorbic Acid or Camu Camu Powder?
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) powder or organic camu camu powder is essential for making liposomal vitamin C.
Ascorbic acid is a water-soluble form of vitamin C with powerful antioxidant properties, which helps protect your cells from free radical damage and supports healthy immune function.
On the other hand, Camu camu powder is a naturally occurring form of vitamin C that can help soothe inflammation and reduce symptoms of allergies.
So which one should you use, ascorbic acid or camu camu powder? I don't think it matters too much.
Whichever you choose, this ingredient will ensure your homemade liposomal vitamin C has all the benefits you need for optimal health.
Not All Ultrasonic Jewelry Cleaners Work
Anyway, in the process of researching all of this incessantly as I am wont to do, it turns out I bought the wrong ultrasonic unit.
This Tack Life jewelry cleaner doesn't do the job. It didn't generate enough ultrasonic energy. It can clean your jewelry just fine, but it won't work properly for making liposomal vitamin C.
I'm going to sell that baby online and I will be purchasing a new one (keep reading for details about how to choose the right one).
Yes, I researched this a lot and if you use one of these low-wattage ultrasonic units, it's a complete waste of time. If you don't generate enough ultrasonic energy, you won't be making liposomes which defeats the whole point.
God is in the details, friends! That's why I strive so hard to write recipes that are tested and proven.
I am obsessed with details and that's why my eyes are practically bleeding from staring at screens for so many hours a day.
Okay, so I watched this video below and it talks about why personal ultrasonic units like my Tack Life don't really work.
Why Not All Ultrasonic Units Work
There are two reasons this cheaper unit doesn't work: (1) It is not powerful enough in terms of wattage and (2) it is elongated instead of square which I guess means it's not mixing properly enough to encapsulated.
So I'm going to buy this one, the iSonic P4810 Commercial Ultrasonic Cleaner, which has enough wattage to encapsulate ascorbic acid.
You need to also buy the beaker, which comes separately.
Yes, you are a real nerd now. You get to use a beaker.
You could also use a glass container such as a mason jar, however, I don't know which one would fit. Instead of mucking around looking for the right size glass container, I just bought the beaker.
It's good to also get the beaker because the clean up is a lot easier and this keeps your liposomal vitamin C away from the stainless steel tank.
Okay? Okay. So get your equipment and your products and then let's move on to the recipe and we will make the golden elixir that will make you look 18 again and fight the RONA like a NINJA.
Oh and here's what it should like when you're done:
Yes, You Need the Alcohol
Oh but wait, there's one more thing. You do need to add alcohol.
Why? I don't know. I want to get this recipe out to you all because you may be sick as a dog right now with the Omicr0n.
But I will tell you that I stared at screens long enough to find this, a guy who made liposomal vitamin C and he looked at it under a microscope.
He said you need alcohol.
Yeah, that dude has a frikkin' MICROSCOPE (I don't have one yet but maybe one day) and he was able to see the liposomes they created.
Can YOU do that? LOL!
Anyway, he says the alcohol is important because it is a solvent and it helps the phospholipids form liposomes.
He also says LivOn Labs, the market leader in liposomal vitamin C, has a recipe that includes 12% alcohol by weight as a "natural preservative."
So it's a preservative but you also need it as a solvent.
His website is down but I found it on Archive.org (yes, yes, I am a nerd!)
How Much Vitamin C Does This Recipe Contain?
I think it depends on how much vitamin C is in the vitamin C powder you are using. However, I will do my best to calculate it and show my work so you can do it, too.
The vitamin C powder (ascorbic acid) I am using contains 5 grams of vitamin C per teaspoon.
This recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of vitamin C powder, which is 6 teaspoons, so that means there is a whopping 30 grams of vitamin C in this concoction.
The recipe makes 28 ounces, so you will get a little over 1 gram of vitamin C per ounce. So, take 2 tablespoons to get 1 gram of vitamin C.
So if you want to take 3 grams of vitamin C per day, which Linus Pauling recommends for his heart disease prevention protocol (working on a post about that now,) I would take 2 tablespoons (one ounce) with meals, or first thing in the morning, at mid-day, and before bed.
If you want to take 6 grams of vitamin C per day, per Linus Pauling's heart disease reversal protocol, double that and take 2 ounces three times per day.
Update on Vitamin C and Heart Disease
Since I wrote this post in January of 2022, I have done an extensive amount of research on heart disease and I believe there are other things that can help.
Please read these posts to understand how I came to the conclusion that there are better things than vitamin C for heart disease:

How Much Do You Save Making This Recipe?
I told you I was a nerd. I did the math to figure out how much you save making this recipe, instead of buying liposomal vitamin C.
Are you ready for it? You're gonna be blown away. I was.
You can save over 80% making your own liposomal vitamin C.
If you buy liposomal vitamin C, it is gonna cost you around $1 per tablespoon, which gives you one gram of vitamin C.
So if you're taking 3 grams per day, that will cost you $3 per day.
Which is $90 for a one month supply. Not cheap!
But if you make your own liposomal vitamin C, it costs only 9 cents per tablespoon.
Two tablespoons of homemade liposomal vitamin C provides 1 gram of vitamin C. So if you take 3 grams per day, it will cost you around 50 cents per day, or $15 per month.
That's a savings of 83%.
This really adds up if you are making this recipe for more than one person in your family. Which I am.
