C-some is a specialized supplement created to optimize the health benefits of both Vitamin C and Vitamin E. Encapsula has produced a liposomal formulation that intrinsically increases the health benefits of both vitamins. Introducing the vitamins in a liposomal formulation significantly increases the body’s ability to absorb these natural molecules. In traditional applications of supplemental vitamins the product is easily broken down by enzymes and secreted as waste. Vitamins that are incorporated into the liposomal formulation receive protection from harmful enymatic reactions and can therefore be more acutely absorbed throughout target tissues.
C-some is a dietary supplement that combines the nutritional value of both vitamin C and vitamin E. Most supplements currently available make the consumer choose between one or the other, however, Encapsula’s ingenious liposomal formulation has married the two vitamins to increase their bioavailability. The two vitamins work synergistically within the formulation to make the supplement one of the most effective on the market. Vitamin C works as the formulation’s active ingredient whereas vitamin E, due to it’s strength as an antioxidant, has the ability to entirely stop the process of lipid preoxidation. Lipid preoxidation is a chain reaction that occurs rapidly within the lipid creating free radicals that eventually discolor the lipid.
Vitamin C is commonly known as ascorbic acid and is produced by nearly all living organisms except humans and therefore it must be consumed in our daily diets. On a everyday basis Vitamin C is used throughout the human body as a enzymatic co-factor in the biosynthesis of several important compounds such as carnitine and collagen. Symptoms of Vitamin C deficiency such as feelings of tiredness and slow immune responsiveness can be a result of insufficient enzymatic reactions leading to lower levels of carnitine and collagen synthesis.
Vitamin C’s primary use, however, is as a robust antioxidant. Even a small accumulation of Vitamin C can protect against harmful free radicals. Without the protection of antioxidants like Vitamin C, free radicals and reactive oxygen species that are produced during normal metabolism can cause lasting damage to essential molecules such as protein, carbohydrates, lipids, and even nucleic acids.
Vitamin E is found naturally in a variety of forms, however, the only form nutritionally beneficial to humans is known as alpha-tocopherol. Much like Vitamin C, Vitamin E is used as a powerful antioxidant that fights harmful free radicals within the body. More specifically, Vitamin E is a fat soluble molecule that can stop the production of reactive oxygen species that are formed when fat undergoes oxidation.
Bioavailability depends on three competing factors: internal absorption, tissue transport, and renal re-absorption. The average vitamin C supplement is lacking in all three of these areas. Studies have suggested that consuming the liposomal form of Vitamin C creates the perfect balance between these three crucial factors. However, Vitamin C cannot be used alone within the liposomal membrane due to a process known as preoxidation. Preoxidation is a rapid chemical process that causes the fatty-lipid to release carbon free radicals which eventually discolor the liposomes. To prevent this preoxidation process a powerful antioxidant can be used. Vitamin E is just the trick, creating the right chemical balance while at the same time also adding additional nutritional benefits to the supplemental formulation.
In addition to the synergistic relationship formed by the vitamin C and E within the formulation, Encapsula has also added Quercetin a plant extract that greatly increases both vitamins absorption ability within the body. The liposomes themselves are made of natural phospholipids, specifically phosphotidylcholine. This chemical is found throughout the human body and is involved in several enzymatic reactions that have restorative effects on large organs such as the brain.
Vitamin C is largely known as a quick cure for the common cold but there has been a vast array of studies that suggest Vitamin C is much more that just a quick fix.
Researchers indicate that the supplemental intake of Vitamin C can support a healthy lifestyle including reducing the risk of heart disease or stroke, increasing blood flow, reducing the risk of neurological disorders, and aiding in cancer treatments.
Daily intake of liposomal Vitamin C can prove to be effective in supporting heart health and lowering the chance for chronic heart related diseases. Additionally, those that consume Vitamin C on a regular bases have a lower chance of suffering from a stroke or have a better recovery times if they happen to be the victim of a stroke. Vitamin C has also been shown to reduce blood pressure and help with serious medical issues such as hypertension. It has even been recently recognized for contributing to a lower incidence of cancer.
Lipid peroxidation process is a chain reaction that takes place in three steps. First carbon-centered lipid radicals are formed through a simple oxidation reduction process. In the next steps the carbon free radical reacts with oxygen to form a peroxyl radical. This is a chain carrying radical that is then able to openly create additional carbon radicals from the unsaturated lipid. This chain reaction can quickly become a runaway process that consumes most of the unsaturated lipid leaving behind undesirable quantities of hydroperoxide.
The lipid peroxidation process can be prevented very simply by stopping the initiation of carbon radical production. Preventative antioxidants such a Vitamin E are able to disturb the initial radical forming process as well as disrupt the formation of peroxyl chains. Studies have shown that Vitamin E reacts over 200 times faster with a peroxyl radical than the average antioxidant. Therefore, only a small ratio of Vitamin E is needed to protect the membrane of unsaturated lipids
