Oral Liposomal Vitamin C for Viral Infections?

Screen shot of Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C

The original video that was embedded here was removed, but I found it here: Vitamin C: The Miracle Swine Flu Cure (60 Minutes) “Living Proof” – YouTube Watch it before it goes away again!

According to a recent news report (Feb. 29, 2020), China is now treating patients with the coronavirus with high dose, intravenous vitamin C in a new clinical trial.

The YouTube video above is a 60 Minutes documentary from 2009 about a New Zealand farmer, named Allan Smith, who was gravely ill with swine flu. His family had been told that there was no hope for him and that he was going to be taken off life support. His persistent wife saved his life in spite of over-whelming opposition from the medical community. She suggested that they give him intravenous, high-dose vitamin C. They said no, but she kept asking, “Why can’t we just try it?” They relented and allowed him to get it for a short while. After one week on vitamin C, he was able to get off life support, but the hospital refused to continue the potentially life-saving treatment, even though they had nothing else to offer. It required hiring a lawyer to get Mr. Smith back on the treatment, but even then, they would only give him a very low dose, enough to keep him alive but still hospitalized. He recovered fully only after his wife started giving him a high dose of oral Lypo-spheric vitamin C syrup.

I had intravenous, high-dose vitamin C therapy during or immediately after multiple surgeries to remove infected tissue from my jaw bones five years ago and it seemed to help me heal more quickly, so I already had some experience with it. After I saw this video, I asked my husband to remember to make sure that I got vitamin C if I ever came down with a bad viral infection and I would do the same for him.

“…What’s interesting about vitamin C is that it appears to be only moderately beneficial when people are healthy. Conversely, where vitamin C really shines is when taken when people are sick…”

Product in the video:

If you go to the 15:18 point in the video documentary from 60 Minutes, Vitamin C The Miracle Cure, you can get a glimpse of the product Mrs. Smith used. I looked online to see if I could find the same one. I think it is this one, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000CD9XGC/. As you can see from the comments, some people object to it because it contains phospholipids from soy lecithin and because they think some of the ingredients might come from China. The manufacturer says they source their materials from various places and they remove the soy protein and estrogen-like compounds from the product to the point that they are not detectable. There are other brands that claim to be China-free that contain lecithin derived from sunflowers, such as this one: https://www.amazon.com/Optimized-Liposomal-SUNFLOWER.

(“Lypo-spheric” is the brand name for liposomal products; It means the same thing.)

Thoughts on the pandemic:

Our local stores are already running out of hand wipes and face masks. If we are facing a pandemic, there will likely be a shortage of hospital beds, respirators, and care-givers. Of course, I would never suggest that anyone deliberately expose him/her self to a virus, but the best of all outcomes might be to survive it and develop immunity so you need never worry about it again. I ordered some Lypo-spheric vitamin C to have on hand just in case. It can’t hurt. They were not out of it yet on Amazon.

The working title for my first book was, “You’ll Never Know What You Are Missing.” It summed up my goal: to make eating for health synonymous with eating for pleasure. Once you discover the secret, you will find that the very best food for weight management, longevity, the treatment and prevention of disease, and over-all health and happiness is also the most sumptuous, satisfying, and indulgent way of eating the world has to offer. You are invited to the feast. Enjoy!

I am currently suffering from histamine intolerance, and liposomal C was recommended as one of the supplements to use, along with ascorbyl palmitate. After just looking up the difference between the two, I’m doubling down on the liposomal C. It seems ascorbyl palmitate (a fat-soluable C) gets cleaved into the palmitate and the C in the gut, essentially leaving you to try to absorb the C alone. Liposomal C gets fully absorbed as one unit BEFORE it even gets to the gut, so no cleaving involved!

BTW: liposomal C and lipo-speric C are the same thing. One term of the supplement may be found cheaper than the other. Liposomal C can be found as a capsule, while lipo-speric C is usually in liquid form. The only real difference here is how you want to take it.

Just an amazing article. I think Liposomal vitamin c is more absorbable and bioavailable in the body because the vitamin C is encased within liposomes, microscopic droplets surrounded by a lipid bilayer, the same kind of barrier as our cell membranes. Taking a high-quality liposomal vitamin C offers greater bioavailability and also many benefits for health.

I take liposomal vitamin C,because it gets through to the liver,which is the post office of the body.From the liver,it gets delivered to many places,which water soluble vitamin .C .might not,because it is so easily passed out of the body by the excretery process.The reason Mr. Smith got luekaemia when hooked up t.o the heart-lung machine,is because his lungs could not strip off th.e negative charges from . the atmospheric gases,because they were not working,and these mechanical devices are not capable of doing the necessary work,that only the lungs can do. Notice how quickly he recovered from the blood cancer,once his lungs started working.No el.ectrical charge stands alone,because of the opposite forces of attraction. A big positive charge always has a little negative charge tagging along,and vice versa. The same in the acidic environment of the stomach. The stomach in the positive acidic environment is constantly stripping negative charges off,into the blood.The negative charges,are life giving.Multiple charges are dominant over simple prime charges,and science and medicine still have a way to go,yet in understanding Gods’ creation.
