I am happy to hear you tried it and that it works :)
I have been trying a little myself, just with the asorbic acid powder (L-ascorbic Acid), which I haven’t had any noticeable problems with either. It’s hard to tell what is working becuase I am also on Vit D3/K2 and B12, potassium and phosphorus because I am low on all of those and also started a good multivitamin to make sure I am not lacking in any vitamins. I do feel a lot better in general. I started taking 1000 mg (1g) a day, then started taking that twice a day once in the morning and once at NIGHT. My sleep has been a problem as I keep waking up so I am glad you wrote about the sleep, because I never would have considered the Vit C might have something to do with it. I have been waking up a lot during the night and my back has felt burning and inflamed as well as gut (probably not my stomach but probably gallbladder). So I am going to try just taking it in the mornings only.
I have been using the asorbic acid powder from bulk supplements which can be purchased at their website bulksupplements.com or on amazon:
I got the small bag to try because it was only about $10 for 100 servings. They recommend taking up to 3 times daily. It tastes great, very sour, can just add it to my water. I usually just put 1 grams in a liter of water and drink it throughout the morning/ early afternoon. Now I am going to try 2 grams.
Sorry for late response, I was in vacations in beautiful Greece.
We rented a brand new car, awful experience!! I still survived it though, after more than 2,000 km!!!
Anyway, I'm going to make some samples of lipo C and give it around to see. I'm truly interested in the effects, as it is looking too good to be true!
Well, I did a 3rd (or 4th) batch with Vit Bs (B6 and B12), plus something else. The effect is less clear, but it is still there.
The best is to try it pure, in GREAT concentrations (like the qualityliposomal site suggests), then add things later, if you wish. Only like that, you'll know how freaking amazing liposomal Vit C is.
I like the mixing idea now just to make my intake of supplements easier.
The problem of lack of sleep ended the moment I added binders, 2 times a day. Now I'm on binders only 1x a day, but the amount of Vit C is lower (as I mix other supplements inside).
I'm convinced that the lipo C moves toxins around too. It does not ONLY cancels toxins, as it is known, but also moves toxins around and that is maybe the reason I could not sleep well. I'm taking DE (diatomaceous earth), zeolites of good quality, chlorella, omega 3 and magnesium, in rotation (or daily).
Now I think I can be brave again and try to increase the dose of Vit C. I'm thinking to do 2 batches, one with pure Vit C, the other with a mix of Vit C and other B vitamins.
I walked, swam, was active despite great heat for about 12 days.
Despite the awful car too (electrosmog was bad...), I was still fine.
I took the liposomal mix of vitamins daily, once a day only. The effect as I said, was still there, but less clear (as I'm also afraid to take too much, so I only took one spoon or less).
Another thing I realized in the car, electrosmog-wise: after 10 minutes in the car, I felt my brain getting foggy, fatigue increasing (like when I take the Swiss trains). It would not get better UNLESS I fell asleep.
It happened every single time: if I felt tired (like when we take the airplaine, it makes your brain / soul tired after about an hour, right?), and allowed myself to sleep (because I was not driving...), well, I felt like re-booted. When the trip ended (after 1, 2 hours), I felt my brain still fresh, and I was energetic.
If I did not fall asleep, but kept awaken the whole trip (30 min, 50 min, 1 hour or more), it would take me hours to recover. I could still walk, but I would have brain fog, be much more tired than what I should be.
It's funny that some types of radiation (cell phone, or wifi, a computer or house wireless phones) will keep me awaken. Other types (train, car, airplane) feel like sucking my life energy, and make me tired, sleepy...
I did not take the liposomal Vit C in pure form to try to see if it cancels the effect, but it is something I'm considering to do next time.
One thing I'm sure is that if I slept in the car, even shortly, my energy battery was recharged and the car radiation affected me only a little.
I hope more people will try this lipo C experiment to share their opinions here!
I heard of other people not feeling anything either. Recipes vary, and brands vary. I know temperature higher than 35 celsius already damage the liposomes (so in summer, it's not a good idea to purchase them).
I never really felt anything with normal Vit C either, that is why I never tried to buy the liposomal version.
As it's hard to find them here, I decided to produce them at home. I swear this is one of the best things that happened to me, healthwise, in the last years.
My husband, who suffers from gout on and off, just commented it is funny he's not having any more gout attacks, despite our last 2 week trip in Greece (because he took quite some oily food and a lot of white whine, beer there). It usually takes a few days on this diet for him to get gout, but nothing happened (I was giving him lipo C daily).
It could be a coincidence, though.
Could you tell us the brand you took? How much you took? Thanks.
I just got someone on skype today, who decided to shift from Mercola's liposomal C to home made version (the very concentrate one, from qualityliposomal.com).
She said she took 10 grams a day of Vit C from Mercola, and felt nothing.
She took the whole bottle / box, never felt anything.
She did her liposomal vit C yesterday, very thick liquid, as I said, from qualityliposomal recipe, and took quite some of it and got VERY strong reactions (her tummy was grumbling, she felt pain all over, but still could sleep well after).
today, I suggested her to take less, about 2 table spoons, which she did.
We continued talking, and minutes after she said her knee was in pain, her wrists too. Stinging pains (exactly like I felt). She never had arthritis though, as far as I know.
She said she feels it in her head too, like her brain feels like changing (she doesn't know if this is positive or negative though). She said she feels it going through her body, almost immediately after ingestion (which is what I feel, when I take enough of it).
Now I'm on a lower dose, so I feel barely anything (very mild).
Wednesday I'll make some more again, probably pure ascorbic acid again, and re-try to take more of it.
If you still feel nothing, could you try to increase the dose (you know that for very ill people, they give 100 GRAMS of vit C in one day, through IV)?
I'm not telling you to take 100 grams though. I think the website of Linus Pauling foundation recommends 10 grams a day last time I read it. It's already pretty much. I take about 1 gram, I think.
Poor you... I hope the pain did not last too long.
Were you ever on chelators / mobilizers?
I get sharp pains, muscle weakness, joint weakness, with some chelators, when they work.
When they stop working, pain goes away too.
This lipoC caused me the exact pains from heavy metal mobilizers (cilantro, Phospholipid Extract, zeolites in the past, etc).
I am taking binders with the lipo C because I feel my liver gets more toxins, and without binders, I can't sleep well.
I do think the lipo C grabs some free radicals and we eliminate some toxins on its own, but I'm starting to feel that there are some that are stirred by the lipo C, that remain and cause some anxiety, liver pain, fatigue, insomnia too. That is why I'm taking daily binders again.
The initial problem with sleep is gone since I tuned my binders.
