Liposomal Vitamin C

Question:
Is liposomal vitamin C (sold as Lypo-Spheric) better than other forms of vitamin C?

Answer:
A liposomal formulation of vitamin C appears to have been developed to boost the absorption of vitamin C beyond levels normally attained with other formulations. However, whether or not it achieves this, and whether this is even a desirable effect, is debatable, based on the current evidence. For details about this and other forms and formulations of vitamin C, see the Vitamin C Supplements Review >>

I've recently changed to liposomal form of Vitamin c since the fall and I know I have fought off colds and viruses in three separate instances. I'm sold! Much safer than a flu shot.

I have used Lypo-C for several years for colds, etc, and I have found it much more effective than any vitamin C capsules or tablets of any kind.
