How to Make Liposomal Vitamin C
Update 2014-2015: A fellow researcher by the
name of Philip provided us with a
new way to make accurate liposomal vitamin C every time. The emphasis
is on using sunflower lecithin powder, not soy lecithin.
Liposomal Vitamin C -
This formula was produced
after many tests using diverse milligram measurements of lecithin and
ascorbic acid to one litre of distilled water and completing the
ultrasonic cycle. At the end of each process the results were
observed, until finally the successful blend was achieved. By
following this formula you will have 100 percent success every time.
The formula for making 1 litre liposomal vitamin C.
What you will need:
88 grams sunflower
lecithin powder. (See notes at end.)
27 grams ascorbic
acid (vitamin C).
One litre of
One 2 litre
flat-bottomed borosilicate glass flask.
One 1 litre
flat-bottomed borosilicate glass flask.
Two 200 millilitre
flat-bottomed borosilicate glass flasks.
A glass rod or glass
spoon. Do not use metal.
A small Pyrex glass
A milligram scale
An electric hand
whisk or a food blender with a glass mixing bowl.
cleaner of 2 litre capacity. (See notes at end.)
A 1 litre glass
bottle. (Do not use plastic.)
- Pour 900 millilitres
steam-distilled water into the 2 litre borosilicate glass flask.
- Weigh 88 grams of
sunflower lecithin, add it to the above and stir with glass spoon
or glass rod.
- Pour 100 millilitres
steam-distilled water into a glass saucepan and bring to near
- Weigh 27 grams ascorbic
acid (vitamin C) and place it into a 200 millilitre borosilicate
glass flask. When the water in 3 above is near boiling pour it
over the ascorbic acid and swirl it until dissolved. (This happens
very quickly when using very hot water.)
- Then, partly fill the
saucepan with cold water and place the 200ml borosilicate glass
flask with dissolved ascorbic acid into it to cool. When it is
sufficiently cool or cold pour the ascorbic acid fluid into the 2
litre borosilicate glass flask and stir with the glass rod or
glass spoon. Put a saucer or plate on top and allow it to stand
for several hours or overnight.
- Use the electric hand
food whisk for five minutes to blend the lecithin and ascorbic
acid mix. (Use a food blender if you do not have an electric food
- Pour the now thoroughly
blended lecithin and ascorbic acid, (but not yet liposomal), into
the 1 litre flat bottomed borosilicate glass flask and place it
into the ultrasonic unit.
- Fill the steel well of
the ultrasonic unit with water to its maximum level and switch on,
and let it run it for a total of 100 minutes. Your ultrasonic unit
probably has short timing durations, in which case, switch it on
again and let it run until you complete the full 100 minutes.
Periodically stir the solution with the glass spoon or glass rod.
- Now you have the best mix
of liposomal vitamin C, which you can pour into a 1 litre glass
bottle and place it into the fridge to use when needed.
A note on ultrasonic frequencies
When the lecithin-ascorbic
acid mix is poured directly into the steel well of the ultrasonic unit
the ultrasonic vibrations will cause nanoparticles of metal to migrate
into the liposomal vitamin C solution. Therefore it is better to use
borosilicate glass as the receptacle to hold the lecithin-ascorbic
acid solution. The ultrasonic waves pass from the metal bottom of the
ultrasonic unit directly through the borosilicate glass flask and into
the fluid. (For good reason, scientific laboratories use borosilicate
glass, rather than metal for their research work.)
- The ultrasonic cleaner
machine needs to be of sufficient size – 2 litres to hold the 1
litre flat bottomed borosilicate flask. Small jewellery ultrasonic
cleaners are not suitable for this purpose.
- Sometimes you will notice
a very thin film of sediment at the bottom of your bottle of
liposomal vitamin C – just swill it around and pour it into your
glass and drink. The occasional tiny amount of sediment is because
not all particles of sunflower lecithin are equal; some are
slightly larger and will eventually sink to the bottom after the
ultrasonic cycle. Bear in mind also that all activities are
influenced by Lunar Cycles that influence result.
- Do not use soy lecithin!
Period! All forms of soy products that have not gone through a
fermentation process are harmful to health, including soymilk and
Tofu. Use only organic sunflower lecithin powder. (I purchase
organic sunflower lecithin from Germany.)
- Use a glass spoon,
not metal or
plastic, for measuring; mixing can be performed with a glass rod.
- Borosilicate glass flasks
can be purchased from a laboratory supplier; purchase thick walled

is the most used supplement in the world. There is good reason for
this as the science behind the many benefits of vitamin C is solid.
Dr. Svent Gyorgi and Dr. Linus Pauling performed innumerable
experiments proving that man, unlike most animals, is dependent upon
vitamin C for a healthy existence. For decades we have relied upon
various ascorbic formulas for our supplemental needs, but now a whole
new vista opens up with Liposomal technology.
Absorption Dramatically - Regular vitamin C is absorbed at
approximately 19%, the balance remains in the gastrointestinal tract
to attract water and loosen the bowels. Nanotechnology, liposomalized
vitamin C is absorbed at 93%, measurable in the blood stream. A 390%
increase in absorption! Get IV results with oral dosage!
- Heat one cup of distilled water in a ceramic coated or stainless
steel pan on your stove (do not heat it in a microwave oven) until
- Pour the water into your blender and add three level tablespoons
of lecithin and blend until all of the lecithin is totally
dissolved in the water.
- In one cup of cold distilled water, dissolve one level tablespoon
of ascorbic acid. Make sure it is totally dissolved, very
- Add the ascorbic acid mixture to the lecithin mixture and blend
- Pour the mixture into the ultrasonic cleaner and turn it on. Stir
The cleaner will turn itself off about every two minutes or so.
You continue to stir frequently and turn the cleaner back on until
ALL of the foam is gone. Repeat: Continue to stir and turn the
cleaner back on until ALL OF THE FOAM IS GONE!! This will take
about 30 minutes or so. When done you will have a mix that is
about the color of milk. There will be some settling but shouldn't
be much, less than 5% of the mix or so.
When done, pour mix
into a reseal able GLASS jar and store in your refrigerator.
Take one teaspoon full of mix once a day.
experiment with this amount after you have taken it for awhile to
see how it effects you.
Take on an empty stomach and wait
at least 15 minutes before eating anything.
Many take it in
the morning before breakfast.
It is really sour tasting so
many chase it with water to get the taste out of the mouth.
Another Excellent Recipe is Shown Here:
This recipe will give you a product between 7.0 and 7.5 (measured
Alkalive pH Stix) or similar pH to human blood so there is no risk
of over acidifying your blood should you take significant amounts of
your homemade Liposomal Vitamin C Ascorbate.
(Blood pH is tightly controlled by the body at near 7.35 pH.
If your blood pH were much above or below that number you would be a
very sick person.)
Creating an identical pH in your liposomal brew is simply a matter
of carefully adjusting the level of bicarbonate of soda.
This Vitamin C Ascorbate recipe is a compilation of several
postings on forums and Pdazzler’s own trials in the kitchen.
1. In qt mixing jar pour 1 cup of distilled water. Add 3 level Tablespoons of granular soy lecithin (NOW
has non-genetically modified soy lecithin) and agitate vigorously
for 3 – 5 minutes.
Then place the lecithin mixture in the refrigerator for two or more
hours. (You can leave in refrigerator overnight if you
prefer.) This allows lecithin granules to soak up
water for easy mixing into solution.
Note: Mixing can be accomplished easier
if you raise the temperature of the distilled water being used to 45
degrees Celsius (113 degrees Fahrenheit). I have found this
unnecessary in getting high quality mixtures but others have found
this warmer temperature helpful.
After 2 hour soaking period vigorously agitate the mixture for
another 3 – 5 minutes. At the conclusion there should be
no lecithin granules visible. Set this smooth lecithin
2. Dissolved 1 level Tablespoon of
Pharmaceutical grade Vitamin C powder in 2 oz. of distilled water.
We recommend you use a 6 oz. or larger screw lid jar so you can shake
3. Dissolve 1 Heaping Tablespoon of
bicarbonate of soda (Arm & Hammer is just fine and aluminum
free despite the inferences by other companies that their's are
aluminum free) in 2
oz. of distilled water using a separate 6 oz. or larger screw lid jar.
Shake or agitate the mixture 3 minutes or until soda dissolved.
*One mole of sodium bicarbonate is 84 grams, and one mole of
ascorbic acid is 176 grams. So, the correct (stoichiometric) ratio of
sodium bicarbonate to ascorbic acid is 84/176 = 0.477. For example, it
would take 477 milligrams of sodium bicarbonate to neutralize 1000
milligrams of ascorbic acid.
**What follows is often the most difficult
part of the process for those new to making homemade liposomal Vitamin
While stirring the Vitamin C / distilled water solution very slowly
pour/dribble the dissolved bicarbonate of soda/water mixture into the
Vitamin C / distilled water solution. (Pour soda solution
very slowly as the resulting mixture will bubble. By pouring
slowing and constantly stirring you will be able to mix the two
without bubbling over.)
At the conclusion of mixing the bicarbonate of soda mixture into
the Vitamin C mixture all bubbling will cease. If you have
any soda settled in the jar pour the resulting total mix together into
that jar, swirl and pour the resulting Vitamin C / Bicarbonate of Soda
mixture into the Ultrasonic Cleaner.
4. Pour the Lecithin solution into ultrasonic cleaner bowl with the
Vitamin C / Bicarbonate of Soda mixture and stir the contents
5. Turn the ultrasonic cleaner on and using a plastic straw
(leaving the top of the cleaner opened), gently, slowly, stirred the
Note: The cleaner will, automatically, self-stop about every 2
minutes. Just push ON button to continue. Repeat for a total of 6
series (12 – 18 minutes). By that time the entire solution should be
blended into a cloudy, homogeneous, milk-like mixture. The LET
solution is now well formed.
You can raise the level of encapsulation by continuing several more
ultrasonic cycles if desired.
This protocol furnishes 12 grams (12000mg.) of Vitamin C Ascorbate.
At an estimated/theoretical 70% – 90% encapsulation efficiency, 8400 mg would be of the
LET type. This solution will keep, acceptably, at room temperature
for 3 to 4 days. Refrigerated, it will keep much longer.
Note: A larger, more powerful, ultrasonic cleaner is available at
Item number 91593. 2+ liters, for about $80.00. Both units perform
well. The larger unit will allow you to make higher quality liposomal
or more encapsulated supplement at one time,
depending on the amount you mix.
