Vitamin C is a potent water-soluble antioxidant, and even in small amounts can protect us from damage by free radicals. It is vital to immune function and is an essential cofactor in many enzymatic reactions in the body. It is truly our most universal antioxidant.

Each 5 mL of Liposomal Vitamin C delivers 1000 mg of Vitamin C as sodium ascorbate. A serving is 1 teaspoon. Each bottle contains 24 servings.
Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is a necessary nutrient that humans cannot synthesize on their own. It is essential to the body’s production of collagen and the formation of blood vessels, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and skin. It is needed for wound healing and to repair tissues throughout the body.
Vitamin C can help metabolize cholesterol into bile acids and increase the bioavailability of iron from foods. It recycles the potent fat-soluble antioxidant, vitamin E, and can help elevate levels of our master detoxifier, glutathione. It is critical to immune function and may also protect against heart disease.
With oral dosing of conventional vitamin C, absorption decreases with increasing dosage due to gastrointestinal saturation, or “bowel tolerance.” For this reason, Dr. Shade developed our Liposomal Vitamin C, enabling effective, high level dosing. In addition, the formula uses Quali®-C, a premium “buffered” vitamin C in the form of sodium ascorbate. Buffered vitamin C is generally better tolerated by those with gastrointestinal sensitivity.
Quicksilver Delivery Systems® utilize modern science to unleash the curative power of nature. With the world’s most advanced phospholipid delivery systems, Quicksilver Scientific supplements actually nourish your cells with phosphatidylcholine as they deliver their core effective ingredients faster and more efficiently.
- Buffered form is well tolerated
- Can support immune function
- Can help repair tissues throughout the body
Bring the Power of Intravenous Therapy into a Convenient Oral Liposomal Delivery
Liposomes are microscopic single to multilayer spheres made of phospholipids (the basic building blocks of cell membranes). Phospholipids encapsulate a compound, such as glutathione, in order to bypass the digestive processes that normally degrade or limit the compound’s absorption. Liposomes demonstrate the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, deposit their cargo intracellularly, and enhance lymphatic circulation of therapeutic compounds. Additionally, the phospholipids that compose the liposome fuse with and feed the cell membranes. Providing phospholipids in this way ensures proper membrane function to facilitate the absorption of nutrients and the excretion of cellular waste products and toxins. In fact, phospholipid therapy, using both injectable forms and oral forms, has a long and solid clinical history for repair and maintenance of liver function, circulatory health, and neurological health.
At their highest expression, liposomes bring the power of intravenous therapy into a convenient oral delivery. However, all liposomes are not created equally. Most liposomes on the market use low grades of phospholipids, e.g. raw lecithin, instead of the high-phosphatidylcholine phospholipid mixes necessary for a good liposome. Nutraceutical manufacturers also typically use cheap shear methods resulting in large (200–600nm), poorly-absorbed particles.
Quicksilver Delivery Systems® improves upon basic liposomal delivery technology with smaller, more stable, tightly distributed single-layer spheres (called unilamellar vesicles) made from the highest-grade ingredients available. These small vesicles begin absorbing as soon as they hit your mouth, so you can get high absorption before they are altered by the harsh processes in the intestines. Quicksilver Scientific uses the same high-tech equipment, rigorous processes, and tight particle size controls used by pharmaceutical companies. Look for the clear difference of Quicksilver Delivery Systems®.
