UK, November 2014

Simon S. and his wife run a children's charity in the UK which experiences much illness. During September 2014, the Foundation provided their charity with hundreds of bottles of the new China-FREE Quali-C® liposomal at our cost. Simon emailed us the following reports after one month using the the new liposomal.
Lipo vit C is going well, amazing product!!!!!!!!

We already have 22 testimonies of curing/healing various illnesses with 4-8 hours. Illnesses such as tonsillitis, viral sore throat, coughs, colds, uvulitis, lowering type 2diabetes blood sugar count etc etc. ... down to 300 bottles already.
- Simon S

When asked for examples, Simon provided them including this report of his own case:
My wife and I and children have personally experienced the benefits and the curing of numerous coughs and colds. It was that I had the uvulitis. I took 8 spoons at once followed by another 4 spoons 3 hours later, and another 4 spoons 3 hours after that, and the infection literally disappeared! Bear in mind that the uvula had nearly tripled in size and I had called an emergency doctor and was preparing to visit my local hospital A&E(ER). - Simon S.

Chicago, May 2014

"My mother had 'O' type macular degeneration and was getting shots in her eye to arrest it... she has been on the China-free liposomal vitamin C for a short while, went in and the doctor was puzzled and said she didn't need the shot as her capillaries were open and healthy looking...
"I don't know for sure if it was the C, but it was the only thing we were doing differently and the degeneration was supposed to be irreversible-not curable."

August 2014: Sales have been brisk and we have already sold out two manufacturing runs of our new China-FREE™ Liposomal Vitamin C (more on order). During this shortage we had hoped our customers would agree to another fine brand of liposomal as supplies run low...

Phone Report: Texas, Aug 14, 2014

A Texas clinic reported to our customer service that they would accept no substitute to our new liposomal vitamin C. The clinic told us that our liposomal is amazing and their clinical results and patient feedback make it important to only use the China-free™ Quali-C® liposomal vitamin C

"Until we can send the full order of the Foundation's liposomal and vitamin C powder at the same time, put their order on hold.

They are really REALLY anxious for the new batch of China-FREE Liposomal to be made."
-- (Report taken by Robert Fonorow)

The doctor at this clinic has promised us a written report on their experiences so far.

This next report is from a long-time friend of the Vitamin C Foundation who stopped in the Vitamin C Store in Naperville. Ralph has a severe dental infection. This report was emailed to us immediately affer taking the first recommended dosage.

Naperville IL, August 2014

"I went for the oral procedure which involve de-breeding the socket and scraping the jaw bone of infected fibrous tissue that had developed where I had a wisdom tooth extracted July 1.

I am on a high dose of AMOX-CLAV which began working after I took the first pill, thank God! I have NORCO for pain, which has worked fairly well in the past.

My interest in using the lypo-C was 3 fold: Kill the bugs, rebuild the damage and kill the pain.

I decided to try your (new China-free) product, so I drew up 4 syringes total. Most went down the throat, but some went on and under the tongue. By the time I got to the 3rd syringe, the residual pain began to subside almost totally. Now after 20 minutes the pain is gone. I had taken the NORCO too, but it only takes the edge off and has never totally eliminated my pain from oraI surgery.

I took your liposomal at 10:40 PM. How often should I take this stuff?

Should I take any ascorbic acid or sodium ascorbate also and if so how much?"

Our best answers are that the Vitamin C Foundation agrees with LivonLabs in that when fighting infection, we recommend 5 (five) to 8 (eight) grams at one time, with a follow-up of half the dosage at hours 3 and 6. For bacterial infections, we recommend doing this daily, usually for ten days. In addition, the Vitamin C Foundation recommends additional regular vitamin C (e.g., up to 10,000 mg of sodium ascorbate (non acidic) vitamin C.)

Recommended dosages and Forum Discussion of Ralph's Case

Testimonial: France May 24, 2014
"This message is just to provide you some feedback on our case

Your new China-free Liposomal C arrived to Algeria 2 weeks ago, and the MD started providing it to this patient with a very advanced breast cancer, with metastasis in bones and also brain, a lot of chemo and even radiation.

The doctors gave up, so the last hope is with high doses with this Liposomal C, combined with coffee enema.

The MD was careful, he started with only 1 gram per day during 5 days, just to double check the tolerance and if any allergy, so far so good.

He then upgraded her to only 3 gm per day at one time, the patient is having a very good sleep now as she was shaking all the night. Even the color of her face is getting better.

Next week he will upgrade her to 5 grs per day one time on the morning on empty stomach, for another week, and if everything works well, he will upgrade her again to 2 times a day 5grs, and he will keep her that way for what ever needed as period.

I just orders 9 Liposomal C bottles , and also Sodium ascorbic and also the Acid ascorbic jars, he might combine Liposomal with IV and other oral use." - T. B.

Update:.Although this initial report was encouraging, this patient did not survive her widespread cancer. Her family prefers we don't reveal more detail. Note that her last hours were improved, and we suspect that her cancer was too advanced for the very slow graduated dosage, similar to what Pauling/Cameron (Cancer and Vitamin C) recommended. These scientists cautioned that it is wise to begin vitamin C slowly in advanced cancers, otherwise the patients may die from the massive tumor necrosis. The best approach may be to begin early, i.e., in Stage 1 rather than Stage 4 cancer. -- Owen Fonorow

Standard Liposomal Dosage Recommendations

For Serious Illness
The Standard Therapeutic Recommendation for Liposomal Vitamin C is 5 to 8 grams (all at one time) followed by half the dosage every 3 hours until suppression.

Note: Studies of vitamin C blood levels have found that they peak from 2 to 3 hours after ingesting a liposomal product.
Note: In addition to the liposomal dosage, The Vitamin C Foundation recommends oral vitamin C to Bowel Tolerance.

What are Liposomes?

Liposomal technology was developed by the pharmaceutical industry and has been studied and perfected for the past 40 years as a means of delivering payloads (e.g. drugs) to blood stream intact through the digestive tracts. Exciting research is looking for ways to target liposomes at certain tissues or cells.

Liposome: A technological Marvel

Note the above video was made by a pharmaceutical company and does not represent any materials used during the manufacture of our new liposomes. We used it because it is a good depiction of what liposomes are, and to emphasize that water is required in order for liposomes to form and be stable. (There are major products claiming to be liposomal, but have been tested, and they have no water!.)

Micronized versus "Nano-ized"

You may have heard of micronization? Micronized nutrients are separated into very tiny particles. These micron-size (or millionth of a meter) particles improve absorption into the blood stream.

Liposomes are even tinier phospholipid particles that, much like a cell membrane, form a protective layer of fat around their water soluble contents.

Forget microns, when we speak of liposomes, we are talking "nano-sized" (billionth of a meter) nutrient delivery systems. Liposomes are a thousand times smaller than a micron, and their lipid membranes protect their "payloads" from acids and digestive enzymes.

Clinically, Liposomal Vitamin C May Exceed Intravenous Vitamin C (IVC) by a Factor of 10 (treating infections)

Thomas Levy wrote: (

I am a paid consultant to LivOn Labs, becoming so only after I became impressed with their products. For the better part of two years, I actually ignored my own medical observations, since they were in complete conflict with what I felt just had to be true. Also, until the past nine months or so, I had not bothered to educate myself extensively on the body of liposome science that has been accumulating for the past 45 years or so.

In a nutshell, I found that liposome encapsulated vitamin C, taken orally, was roughly 10 times more effectively clinically in resolving infectious diseases than the IVC.

Having given thousands of IVCs and taken hundreds myself, this was difficult to comprehend, even though the clinical observation was quite straightforward. I subsequently realized that the liposome gave the ultimate bioavailability: intracellular delivery, including the mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, and even the nucleus. Furthermore, it was delivered in a non-energy-consuming fashion. IV vitamin C requires an expenditure of energy to eventually reach the intracellular compartment, but liposome encapsulated vitamin C does not. If possible, you do not want to consume energy to get energy-carrying substances inside the cell. It defeats the basic purpose. But let me clear, if it is possible, give a patient both IVC and oral liposome encapsulated vitamin C. However, if only one is available, the best application is with liposomes orally.

Furthermore, liposome encapsulated glutathione is even more spectacular. IV GSH is broken down into its three amino acids within a minute or two of entering the blood. Subsequently three energy-consuming active uptake mechanisms are needed to get those precursors inside the cell, and then two molecules of ATP are used by the enzymes needed to resynthesize the GSH molecule intracellularly. Lipo GSH consumes no energy to deliver its contents intracellularly. Lipo C and lipo GSH are a spectacular combination for all diseases, due to the prooxidant nature of the associated symptoms, and they are especially impressive for infectious diseases. As an aside, I am quite sure that a few packets of each would resolve the swine flu in a day or two at the most.

Discussion of Liposomal Vitamin C (1:12:00)

What Makes Our Liposomes Different?

Empirical Labs has mastered liposomal technology using natural Phosphatidylcholine liposomes as a delivery method for Vitamin C.

We believe that each and every component of our products must be as health building as possible. Current literature has shown that hydrogenated liposomes strongly increase LDL (bad) cholesterol levels while natural non-hydrogenated phosphatidylcholine was shown not to alter cholesterol levels in primates. Our choice was easy. We are currently the only company to use all natural non-hydrogenated phosphatidylcholine for our delivery system with a claim put right on the label!

Our liposomes:
Our product has only what you need:
Our Liposome.s structure: We take great care to process our liposomes properly in order to generate properly structured spherical liposomes in our product. If the structure is not there, they are not liposomes.

Empirical has partnered with a local university to scientifically study their liposomes.

What About Homemade "Liposomes"?

Fortunately, most home made "liposomes" have been tested and are emulstions, which still provides increased bioavailability of vitamin C. We say "fortunately because of the following from Emek Blair at Empirical Laboratories:

Here are my comments regarding these homemade .liposomes:.

1. Chemical stability: very acidic formula (vitamin c) + oxygen + lots of fats + a lot on energy from sonication + heat from sonicator + who knows what else is the lecithin + bpa and metal (e.g. chromium, iron, molybdenum) from using low quality water/low quality jewelry cleaner = chemical reactions such as hydrogenation, hydroxylation, destruction of vitamin c and a lot of toxic material. I think that using jewelry cleaning equipment is not the best idea to process food in as it is not even food grade (I would recommend much higher grade than food grade for making liposomes).

2. There are a lot of microbes, bacteria etc. in your kitchen, mixed in with cleaning chemicals, pollution in air, chemicals in tap water or bottled distilled water, impurities in the ingredients, and all the other chemicals that exist in the average house. Even if they were making liposomes, I would not want that brought into my bloodstream.

If these homemade liposome do bypass your body.s most important defense against food pathogens, toxins, and toxicants (your stomach) and get absorbed directly into your blood, then great care must be taken during processing.

Our process uses water that will not register any pesticides, ions of any type other than carbonate from carbon dioxide during even the most sensitive testing (our water has conductivity less than 0.07 uS/cm, pharmaceutical water is 1.3 uS/cm). This same water is used to rinse away any cleaning agent and then we test for the cleaning agents in the waste water stream out of our 304l stainless steel processing equipment and holding tanks (we regularly passivate our stainless containers so that material will not come off of it during processing). There is always a positive pressure of NF or medical grade nitrogen so that absolutely no pollutants will enter the process.

Note: The sonication and large dilution together will destroy the liposomes. Sonication for the homemade .liposomes. does something a little different.

Best regards,

Emek Blair
