    I can't speak for others, but I keep a bottle in the fridge ICE (In Case of Emergency), "emergency" being symptoms of cold or flu that do not resolve in 24 hours with megadoses of vitamin C in capsules (a gram every 2 hours). Liposomal C is absorbed at a much higher rate than caps so a little goes a long way.

    Good-day, who are you addressing your question to?
    I take the liposomal C because it absorbs so very well (much better than other oral forms) without GI side effects. It isn't quite as good as IV Vitamin C which is used to treat symptoms of CFIDS, but for those of us with CFIDS this is a good second option.
    The Liposomal C helps me fight infections, helps with fatigue, and my skin and gums look better.

    Reesacat asking what it helps was for anyone who cared to reply! It sounded like a good combo; something of benefit too. Is homemade cheaper or preferable?

    Definitely homemade is cheaper, but since I use it only rarely, I still have the first bottle I bought. If you, like some here, have a specific need for it, you might wish to learn to make it.

    Thanks, Mellowsong! Yes, I am okay with an organic or non-gmo source of soy, but a close friend has Lupus and has been soy-free as recommended by her doctor. She's worried about adding anything soy. I'm going to get both and do a test batch of each to compare them. I'll let you know how it works.

    Also, I understand it's better to use a sodium-ascorbate for high-dose treatment rather than ascorbic acid (due to stomach upset) or calcium ascorbate (due to build up of calcium), but I am having a very hard time finding a non-gmo or organic source of that. I found a few whole food vitamin c sources, but they have co-enzymes and other things in them from the food source - nothing added though. Your post said to be sure it's just pure vitamin c. Do you think the whole food source C will work?

    Thanks for everything!

    I bought sodium ascorbate the first time and pretty much all the ascorbates are buffered. No matter how long I mixed it (I use an immersion blender) the mixture would not stay together. I tried using less thinking the problem might be too much powder but that didn't work either. If the whole food source is not buffered it may work but again, I have no way of knowing. All you can do is try. I cannot afford a whole food Vitamin C much as I would like to so I get the bad stuff made from corn. I hate that but figure by the time it is made into the Vitamin C very little to no pesticide or GMO protein is left. I am much better off using this than not taking Vitamin C at all

    If your fatigue is due to low thyroid or something like a food allergy to gluten, the Liposomal C will ease it a bit but the underlying problem needs to be corrected. If you are fighting an infection such as a virus the Lipsomal C will help you fight it and that helps the fatigue.

    Vitamin C does so many things at so many levels it is one of my core supplements. Vitamin C is used in building skin, bones, teeth, tissue, etc.; it's an anti-oxidant, it supports the immune system, etc.
    Your body doesn't make Vitamin C, so you need to get it from food and supplements if you need extra.

    I just want to point out that liposomal vitamin C is quite expensive and really hi-powered. Unless you have some condition, either chronic (like CFID) or a sudden illness, that you need mega-doses of C to address, a good-quality traditional vitamin C will work just fine. The ordinary caps are what I take daily, and bulk up on at the first sign of a scratchy throat. The liposomal C is reserved for real emergencies.

    I have used the Lipsomal Vitamin C (1,000 mg) and Vitamin D3 (4,000 IU) every 2-4 hours for around 24 hours to help me knock out on different occasions flu, virus, and a gum infection. It made me feel less sick with the flu aches, etc.
    With the Lipsomal Vitamin C I didn't get the gastric upset of non-liposomal high dose Vitamin C (for me those side effects are cramping and diarrhea). I had gotten to the point I was almost not able to take regular non-lipsomal Vitamin C over 4,000 mg/day due to the gastric side effects.

    Grateful I wasn't thinking straight this morning or I would have given you this info earlier. I'm sorry about that Here is the powder I use to make my liposomal C. I tolerate it very well: http://www.iherb.com/NutriBiotic-Asc...-kg/30240?at=0
    Why I chose this one, besides affordability:
    We use only 100% pure pharmaceutical grade L-ascorbic acid USP-FCC* (C6H8O6) which contains no corn residue, plant antigens, or protein impurities. Individuals allergic to corn or yeast can use this product with confidence.
    pH 2.1†Made without Gluten or GMOs

    Thanks, Mellowsong! I was about to get that one when I read that with high doses, like my friend with Lupus will need, the ascorbic acid will bother her tummy. You tolerate it well - what kind of doses are you taking, if you don't mind my asking.

    Hi Ressacat! Is your liposomal C homemade? If so, are you using ascorbic acid and having no gastric upset? I'm trying to pick a C to use for a friend who will need very high doses. Thanks!
