About the New China-FREE Liposomal Vitamin-C:

Ordering the World's Finest China-FREE™ Liposomal Vitamin C from INTELIGENT*Vitamin*C Inc supports the Vitamin C Foundation.
China-FREE™ Liposomal Vitamin C is guaranteed not to contain vitamin C that is made in China.

Why True-Liposomes™ Are Different

Vitamin C Foundation Approved® True-liposomes™ are a unique combination of the world's best liposomal technology and the world's best vitamin C.

How We Make Liposomes

We believe that each and every component of our products must be as health building as possible. Current literature has shown that hydrogenated liposomes (trans fats) may have adverse health effects while natural non-hydrogenated phosphatidylcholine was shown not to adversely alter clinical health markers in primates. Our choice was easy. We are currently the only company to use all natural non-hydrogenated phosphatidylcholine for our delivery system with a claim put right on the label!

True-Liposomes™ structure:

We take great care to process our liposomes properly in order to generate properly structured spherical liposomes in our product. If the structure is not there, they are not liposomes.

Empirical has partnered with a local university to scientifically study their liposomes.

Simon S. runs a UK charity for children. During September 2014, the Foundation provided their charity with hundreds of bottles of the new China-FREE Quali-C® liposomal. Simon emailed us the following reports after one month using the new liposomal.

Lipo vit C is going well, amazing product!!!!!!!!
We already have 22 testimonies of curing/healing various illnesses with 4-8 hours. Illnesses such as tonsillitis, viral sore throat, coughs, colds, uvulitis, lowering type 2 diabetes blood sugar count etc. etc. ...
- Simon S.

When asked for examples, Simon provided them including this report of his own case:

My wife and I and children have personally experienced the benefits and the curing of numerous coughs and colds. It was that I had the uvulitis. I took 8 spoons at once followed by another 4 spoons 3 hours later, and another 4 spoons 3 hours after that, and the infection literally disappeared! Bear in mind that the uvula had nearly tripled in size and I had called an emergency doctor and was preparing to visit my local hospital A&E(ER). - Simon S.

Chicago, May 2014

"My mother had 'O' type macular degeneration and was getting shots in her eye to arrest it... she has been on the China-free liposomal vitamin C for a short while, went in and the doctor was puzzled and said she didn't need the shot as her capillaries were open and healthy looking... "I don't know for sure if it was the C, but it was the only thing we were doing differently and the degeneration was supposed to be irreversible-not curable."

Phone Report: Texas, Aug 14, 2014

A Texas clinic told our customer service that they would accept no substitute. The clinic told us that our China-FREE™ liposomal is amazing and their clinical results and patient feedback make it important that we only send the new liposomal vitamin C.

"Until we can send the full order of the Foundation's liposomal and vitamin C powder at the same time, put their order on hold.

They are really REALLY anxious for the new batch of China-FREE True-Liposomal™ to be made." -- (Report taken by Robert Fonorow)

This next report is from a long-time friend of the Vitamin C Foundation who stopped in the Vitamin C Store in Naperville. Ralph has a severe dental infection. This report was emailed to us immediately after taking the first recommended dosage.

Naperville IL, August 2014

"I went for the oral procedure which involve debriding the socket and scraping the jaw bone of infected fibrous tissue that had developed where I had a wisdom tooth extracted July 1.

I am on a high dose of AMOX-CLAV which began working after I took the first pill, thank God!

I have NORCO for pain, which has worked fairly well in the past.

My interest in using the liposomal vitamin C was 3 fold: Kill the bugs, rebuild the damage and kill the pain.

I decided to try your (new China-free) product, so I drew up 4 syringes total. Most went down the throat, but some went on and under the tongue. By the time I got to the 3rd syringe, the residual pain began to subside almost totally. Now after 20 minutes the pain is gone. I had taken the NORCO too, but it only takes the edge off and has never totally eliminated my pain from oral surgery.

I took your liposomal at 10:40 PM. How often should I take this stuff?

Should I take any ascorbic acid or sodium ascorbate also and if so how much?"

Based on the UK reports, the Vitamin C Foundation now recommends 5 (five) to 8 (eight) grams at one time when dealing with viral or unknown infections, followed by another half the dosage at hours 3 and 6. For bacterial infections, we recommend doing this once or twice daily, usually for ten days. We also recommend additional regular vitamin C (e.g., up to 10,000 mg of ascorbic acid and/or sodium ascorbate (non acidic) vitamin C.)

Recommended dosages and Forum Discussion of Ralph's Case

Testimonial: France May 24, 2014

"This message is just to provide you some feedback on our case

Your new China-free Liposomal C arrived to Algeria 2 weeks ago, and the MD started providing it to this patient with a very advanced breast cancer, with metastasis in bones and also brain, a lot of chemo and even radiation.

The doctors gave up, so the last hope is with high doses with this Liposomal C, combined with coffee enema.

The MD was careful, he started with only 1 gram per day during 5 days, just to double check the tolerance and if any allergy, so far so good.

He then upgraded her to only 3 gm per day at one time, the patient is having a very good sleep now as she was shaking all the night. Even the color of her face is getting better.

Next week he will upgrade her to 5 gms per day one time on the morning on empty stomach, for another week, and if everything works well, he will upgrade her again to 2 times a day 5 gms, and he will keep her that way for what ever needed as period.

I just orders 9 Liposomal C bottles , and also Sodium ascorbic and also the Acid ascorbic jars, he might combine Liposomal with IV and other oral use." - T. B.

Update:. This initial report was encouraging, unfortunately this patient did not survive her widespread cancer. Her family prefers we don't reveal more detail. Note that her last hours were improved.

Liposomal Dosage Recommendations

The Standard Therapeutic Recommendation for Liposomal Vitamin C is 5 to 8 grams (all at one time) followed by half the dosage every 3 hours until suppression.

Note: Studies of vitamin C blood levels have found that they peak from 2 to 3 hours after ingesting a liposomal product.
Note: In addition to the liposomal dosage, The Vitamin C Foundation recommends oral vitamin C to Bowel Tolerance.

  • Viral Infections: 8 grams (8 teaspoons) at one time for infections (per the Levy Amplification Effect). Then 4 grams 3 hours later, followed by another 4 grams three hours after that.
  • Bacterial Infections: Use viral protocol once or twice daily for at least 10 days.
    Maintain protocol daily for 10 days, until white blood cell count returns to normal, or bowel tolerance for regular vitamin C returns to normal. Double this dosage period (twice daily) for severe infections.
  • Heart Disease 3000 - 10000 mg (3 - 5 teaspoons) spread throughout the day.
    We recommend using ordinary vitamin C powder to tolerance first, and then add the remaining grams (up to 10,000 mg) as liposomal vitamin C.

    At this time, for people with ordinary bowel tolerances, the Vitamin C Foundation does not believe that liposomal amplifies vitamin C for chronic scurvy - aka heart disease.

    There is better absorption, so in theory 3000 mg liposomal (3 teaspoons) may have the functional equivalents of 6000 mg of ordinary vitamin C. In our opinion, it is prudent to utilize liposomal as an add-on for ascorbic acid, not a replacement to the Pauling Therapy®. Owen Fonorow)

  • Cancer : Unknown. (Most experts recommend intravenous vitamin C, up to 200,000 mg)
    Until more is known about liposomal's effect on cancers, we recommend the amplification dosage for infections (5 g at once) plus bowel tolerance ascorbic acid throughout the day, especially on those days you do not have IV/C.

True-Liposomal™ Vitamin C may Exceed the Effectiveness of Intravenous Vitamin C (IVC) by a Factor of 10 treating infection

While controversial, we believe that a True-Liposomal™ vitamin C is clinically more effective for acute infection than intravenous vitamin C.

Experiments show that highly encapsulated nano-sized liposomal vitamin C raises vitamin C blood concentrations higher than other forms of oral vitamin C. However, the concentrations measured are hundreds to thousands of times lower than the peak concentrations produced during intravenous vitamin C .

Several doctors have reported to us that clinically, for certain conditions, especially viral infections and allergies, (and perhaps cancer, although this is controversial), true encapsulated liposomal may exceed the effectiveness of intravenous vitamin C. The effect must not be related to blood levels and perhaps has more to do with how vitamin C is delivered inside cells. Liposomes are known to be able to deliver their contents directly into the cytoplasm,[] and perhaps this is at least part of the reason for these anecdotal reports.

Dr. Levy's Statement

Thomas Levy wrote: (

I am a paid consultant to LivOn Labs, becoming so only after I became impressed with their products. For the better part of two years, I actually ignored my own medical observations, since they were in complete conflict with what I felt just had to be true. Also, until the past nine months or so, I had not bothered to educate myself extensively on the body of liposome science that has been accumulating for the past 45 years or so. In a nutshell, I found that liposome encapsulated vitamin C, taken orally, was roughly 10 times more effectively clinically in resolving infectious diseases than the IVC.

Having given thousands of IVCs and taken hundreds myself, this was difficult to comprehend, even though the clinical observation was quite straightforward. I subsequently realized that the liposome gave the ultimate bioavailability: intracellular delivery, including the mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, and even the nucleus. Furthermore, it was delivered in a non-energy-consuming fashion. IV vitamin C requires an expenditure of energy to eventually reach the intracellular compartment, but liposome encapsulated vitamin C does not. If possible, you do not want to consume energy to get energy-carrying substances inside the cell. It defeats the basic purpose. But let me clear, if it is possible, give a patient both IVC and oral liposome encapsulated vitamin C. However, if only one is available, the best application is with liposomes orally.

Furthermore, liposome encapsulated glutathione is even more spectacular. IV GSH is broken down into its three amino acids within a minute or two of entering the blood. Subsequently three energy-consuming active uptake mechanisms are needed to get those precursors inside the cell, and then two molecules of ATP are used by the enzymes needed to resynthesize the GSH molecule intracellularly. Lipo GSH consumes no energy to deliver its contents intracellularly. Lipo C and lipo GSH are a spectacular combination for all diseases, due to the prooxidant nature of the associated symptoms, and they are especially impressive for infectious diseases. As an aside, I am quite sure that a few packets of each would resolve the swine flu in a day or two at the most.

Levy's Discussion of Liposomal Vitamin C (@ 1:12:00)

What Are Liposomes?

Liposomes are phospholipid particles that, much like a cell membrane, form a protective layer of fat around their water soluble contents, called the "payload."

Liposomal technology was developed by the pharmaceutical industry and has been studied and perfected for the past 40 years as a means of delivering payloads (e.g. drugs) to the blood stream intact through the digestive tract.

True-Liposomes™ are too small to be seen with an ordinary optical microscope.

Exciting research in gene therapy is looking for ways to target liposomes at certain tissues or cells.

Liposome: A technological Marvel

This short video illustrates how liposomes, like our cells billions of years go, naturally form in water:

Note the above video does not describe our process. We show it because it is a good depiction of what liposomes are. We believe it is necessary to emphasize that water is required in order for liposomes to form and be stable. (There are major products claiming to be liposomal, yet they have no water!.)

Micronized versus "Nano-sized"

Some products are sold as "micronized" meaning they have been ground to a millionth of a meter. These micron-size particles improve absorption into the blood stream and in theory are more bioavailable to our bodies than ordinary supplements.

Liposomes are even tinier than micronized supplements - i.e., 1,000 times smaller! Forget microns, when we speak of liposomes, we are talking "nano-sized" (billionth of a meter) nutrient delivery systems.

Liposomes and their lipid membranes protect their "payloads" from acids and digestive enzymes and may be able to enter the inside of our cells without expending energy (by merging with the cell membrane.) This may help explain the Levy Amplification effect against infection.

What About Homemade "Liposomes"?

Fortunately, most "liposomes" that are not manufactured commercially have been tested and they are emulsions, and not truly encapsulated liposomes.

These emulsions can provide increased bioavailability of vitamin C. However, it is a disservice to suggest to people suffering illness that so-called "homemade" liposomes have the same effect as True-Liposomes™

Any impurity contained in the water inside a True-liposome™ might bypass the immune system.


Here are my comments regarding these homemade .liposomes:.

1. Chemical stability: very acidic formula (vitamin C) + oxygen + lots of fats + a lot on energy from sonication + heat from sonicator + who knows what else is the lecithin + bpa and metal (e.g. chromium, iron, molybdenum) from using low quality water/low quality jewelry cleaner = chemical reactions such as hydrogenation, hydroxylation, destruction of vitamin C and a lot of toxic material. I think that using jewelry cleaning equipment is not the best idea to process food in as it is not even food grade (I would recommend much higher grade than food grade for making liposomes).

2. There are a lot of microbes, bacteria etc. in your kitchen, mixed in with cleaning chemicals, pollution in air, chemicals in tap water or bottled distilled water, impurities in the ingredients, and all the other chemicals that exist in the average house. Even if they were making liposomes, I would not want that brought into my bloodstream.

If these homemade liposome do bypass your body's most important defense against food pathogens, toxins, and toxicants (your stomach) and get absorbed directly into your blood, then great care must be taken during processing.

Our process uses water that will not register any pesticides, ions of any type other than carbonate from carbon dioxide during even the most sensitive testing (our water has conductivity less than 0.07 uS/cm, pharmaceutical water is 1.3 uS/cm). This same water is used to rinse away any cleaning agent and then we test for the cleaning agents in the waste water stream out of our 304l stainless steel processing equipment and holding tanks (we regularly passivate our stainless containers so that material will not come off of it during processing). There is always a positive pressure of NF or medical grade nitrogen so that absolutely no pollutants will enter the process.

Note: The sonication and large dilution together will destroy the liposomes. Sonication for the homemade .liposomes. does something a little different.
