The Cornerstone of Health—Phase II Detox Upregulator
Liposomal Vitamin C with R-Lipoic Acid
Liposomal Vitamin C with R-Lipoic Acid: Beyond its well-known role supporting normal immune system function, Vitamin C supports the growth and repair of collagen in all parts of the body, cholesterol metabolism, is a cofactor in numerous enzymatic reactions, and necessary for the synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters.1 As an antioxidant, Vitamin C scavenges and neutralizes free radicals, and supports levels of Vitamin E and glutathione.2,3 Delivered with Vitamin C, the antioxidant R-Lipoic acid (as sodium R-Lipoate) supports endogenous production of glutathione, an integral component of detoxification, via the Nrf2 nuclear transcription pathway.4
Quicksilver Scientific's Delivery Systems™ Vitamin C with R-Lipoic Acid brings you a highly absorbable form of professional-grade Vitamin C, partnered with R-Lipoic acid for optimal glutathione support.* The absorption of conventional oral Vitamin C diminishes rapidly as the dose increases due to gastrointestinal saturation.5 Quicksilver Scientific utilizes a buffered form of Vitamin C (sodium ascorbate) which is generally better tolerated than regular ascorbic acid by those with gastrointestinal sensitivity, enabling higher dosing without gastrointestinal side effects.
Quicksilver's Delivery Systems™ Phospholipid Encapsulation System brings the power of intravenous therapy into a convenient oral delivery.* Our Quicksilver Delivery Systems™ improves upon liposomal technology with smaller, more stable, single-layer spheres made from the highest-grade ingredients available. In addition to exceptional absorption rates, nanospheres like the ones produced by Quicksilver Scientific have demonstrated the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, deposit their cargo intracellularly and enhance lymphatic circulation of nutrients.6,7 Also, the phospholipids that compose the liposome shell feed the cell membranes;8 this helps ensure the proper function for the absorption of nutrients and the excretion of cellular waste products and toxins.*
General Suggested Usage: Adult:For general use, 8 pumps per day. For advanced intermittent use, may take 50 pumps (6250mg Vitamin C and 312.5mg R-Lipoate) or more per day, in divided doses. Increase dosage gradually, as tolerated.
Children: For general use, 2 pumps per day. Also may gradually increase dosage, scaling adult dosage by child's weight (adult = 150 lbs).
Topical application: Cover clean face (avoiding eyes) with one pump for a daily treatment, or use several pumps as a mask and leave on for 10-15 minutes. May be re-wetted and left on for another 10 minutes before rinsing.
