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 because it's more absorbable.
In this post, I'll teach how how to easily make liposomal vitamin C at home.
And not so fast – you can't just use any recipe you find online.
As I have discovered, most recipes you can find online for liposomal vitamin C don't even work. They are using the wrong ultrasonic cleaners. I know, it's shocking!
Why Take Liposomal Vitamin C?
Why Everyone knows vitamin C is critical when are sick.
But taking regular vitamin C in small doses really won't cut it when you're fighting an infection. You need to megadose when you feel a cold or flu coming on – just like we do with the Vitamin D3 hammer (I'll write about that in a future post).
That said, 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.
A better way to take vitamin C is to take liposomal vitamin C. Liposomal vitamin C 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 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 the vitamin C 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. The others are: (1) real cod liver oil, not the fermented garbage – I like Rosita brand (2) probiotics (3) Iodoral (4) Lugol's iodine and (5) Vitamin D3 (sunlight is best but a lot of people in northern hemispheres can't get adequate sunlight in the winter).
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. I actually have a friend who had some hormonal problems and her hair was thinning badly. She started taking collagen and vitamin C 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.
So, anyway, in a nutshell, you need to buy a commercial grade ultrasonic jewelry cleaner pronto (see details below – don't worry, it's under $100) and make your own 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 Your Own 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).
I'd also buy the Dr. Mercola brand from his site directly or on Amazon – because (1) it's non0GMO (2) I trust him implicitly, and (3) he needs our support since he has been so heavily censored – and the world needs him right now!
However, it is more expensive. And it's so easy to make.
Also, 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. He also has a children's version of the liposomal vitamin C supplement. So those are some more options for you.
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.
You can certainly buy 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 haven't needed it until now. Seems like we are all getting hit by this 0micron variant (or common cold or whatever the heck it is) going around.
I was sick for over a week, then I made this liposomal vitamin C, took some of the infamous horse paste with a capital I, and liposomal vitamin C – and badda bing, badda bang, I was cured a few days later.
I am using non-GMO lecithin granules for now, just because that's what I bought. I plan to switch to sunflower graunules, because I think they are better for you.
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 jewelry cleaner.
This Tack Life jewelry cleaner doesn't do the job. 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 jewelry cleaners, it's a complete waste of time. 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 jewelry cleaners like my Tack Life don't really work.
There are two reasons it 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 for the vitamin C to get encapsulated.
So I'm going to buy this one, the iSonic P4810 Commercial Ultrasonic Cleaner, which has enough wattage to encapsulate vitamin C:
You need to also buy the beaker, which comes separately.
Yes, you are a real nerd now. You get to use a beaker.
Guys, I'm sorry but you'll have to type these products into Amazon yourself.
I have tried 3 times but can't figure out how to get back on Amazon as an affiliate. They banned me because they said I posted my links on Russian spam sites.
Ahhh! I never posted my Amazon links on any Russian websites! It was probably Deep State trolls or Chinese CCP agents.
But Amazon is claiming that I posted my links on Russian websites and that was their reasoning for cancelling me after I have been an Amazon Prime customer for almost 25 years, and an Amazon Associates affiliate for 15 years. FFS!
And they won't respond to my emails. Big tech nazi monsters. I may have to call them. Or sue them, IDK.
OK, thanks for letting me do a mini-rant. Still processing all of this, trying to manage my PTSD.
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 presevative." 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.
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.
Homemade Liposomal Vitamin C Recipe
Makes 3 1/2 cups, or 28 ounces (enough for a quart mason jar)
Non-GMO sunflower or soy lecithin granules (6 tablespoons)
Distilled water or filtered (fluoride-free) water (3 cups)
Vodka or Everclear grain alcohol (2 tablespoons)
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) powder or organic camu camu powder (2 tablespoons)
Blender (I like my Vitamix but any blender or food processor will do)
Ultrasonic jewelry cleaner (get the right one; see recipe notes)
Quart (4 cup) mason jar with lid
1. Soak lecithin granules in blender or food processor with distilled water overnight, or for at least 2-3 hours.
2. Add the vodka and vitamin C powder to the blender and blend together until frothy.
3. Transfer concoction to your fancy nerd beaker (see recipe notes) and set aside.
4. Add tap water to the tank of your P4810 iSonic ultrasonic cleaner.
5. Place the beaker into the ultrasonic cleaner. Make sure the tap water in the tank covers about a half inch from the bottom of the beaker.
6. Set the timer on the ultrasonic cleaner for 30 minutes.
7. Stir every so often, using a wooden or plastic spoon. I read that the stirring is important.
8. After 30 minutes, transfer the mixture from the beaker to a quart mason jar with a lid and store in the fridge.
The liposomal vitamin C will only keep in the fridge for 3-4 days.
