5 out of 5 stars

I have made many, many batches of liposomal vitamin C for my family to treat whooping cough in the last month or so. I have tweaked the procedure and will share what I have learned so hopefully you can skip some of the learning curve.

I prefer to use sunflower lecithin granules but ran out of what I had and was not able to get more. I got sunflower powder. Bad idea. I couldn't get it to mix and there would be a thick sludge in the bottom of my jar, so I was skeptical about how well assimilated the vitamin C was. I bought Non GMO soy lecithin granules (Now brand) and they worked as well as the sunflower lecithin granules. For short term, I felt it was the best solution I could come up with.

Tools to Make Liposomal Vitamin C

  • a blender
  • jewelry cleaner
  • Tablespoon
  • Measuring cup
  • Pan to warm the water


  • 1 1/2 cups distilled water
  • 3 T. lecithin granules
  • 2 T. sodium ascorbate powder (I used nutribitoic)


Warm 1 cup distilled water. Water should be warm, but not too hot to touch. Put the 1 cup warm water and 3 Tablespoon lecithin granules in a blender. Mix on low for 30 seconds. Let rest. Repeat mixing it up and letting it rest for several minutes while preparing the vitamin C. Heat 1/2 cup distilled water in the pan, again until warm but not super hot. Remove from heat. Add 2 Tablespoons sodium ascorbate powder. Mix until it is melted.

Assuming the soy lecithin granules are completely incorporated, add the vitamin C water and blend gently.

Pour mixture into jewelry cleaner. Turn jewelry cleaner on. I use a straw to mix now and then. I would do 5 - 6 cycles as it had an auto shut off. This gave 12-15 minutes total time. Sometimes I would forget about it for a little while and then resume. I think that is okay.

Pour into a quart jar. Put a lid on it. Store in the refrigerator for several weeks. (I would go through a jar every day or less, though! )

One tablespoon of this liposomal C contains about 1 gram of vitamin C. Because liposomal vitamin C is more absorbable than powdered sodium ascorbate, it is equivalent to 5-8 grams of vitamin C powder.


So my 19 year old son who had been taking upward of 30 grams of sodium ascorbate a day was talking 5-6 Tablespoons daily of liposomal C for the same or better benefit, and it seems to be easier on the gut.

I would dose three times daily, first thing in the morning, mid afternoon and before bed. Ideally on an empty stomach but I figured better to dose even if food were taken than not at all. I would give a juice chaser.

Hope that will help others with liposomal c making!

Dear Nicole,

I don't know what could be used in place of the jewelry cleaner. I think the idea is that the sound wave vibrations are causing the vitamin C to bond with the lecithin. I do not know of another way this would be accomplished. I am not saying there isn't another way, I just don't know what it would be.

A jewelry cleaner is about $30. I have used mine to produce maybe 50 batches of liposomal C so far. It has been worth the investment for my situation.

All my drinking water including for making Lipo Vit-C & CoQ10, and Colloidal Silver, I use carbon faucet filter in gal jugs then Ozonate for 15-30 seconds.

Lately I find a pinch of Sea Salt into purified water prior to adding Vit-C is best.

Dear Mama to Many

Tony Pantellaresco has a you tube video. "Liposomes for All" This is the method I have been using. Although I have used and probably will continue using the jewelry cleaner method too.

Dear Baldev,

Because many waters contain chemicals and some have high mineral content and I do not know how the sodium ascorbate might bind or react with those things, I suggest distilled. I wouldn't rule out that water other than distilled would give very good results though. If I didn't have distilled water I would make it with whatever I did have, filtered if possible.

Hi Mama to Many.

My question is, is it necessary to use the distilled water to Make Liposomal Vitamin C? Why can't we use water of pH 7 or more if available. Thanks, Baldev

What if you don't have a jewelry cleaner?

Mama to Many,

Can I use a food source vitamin C? I have a powdered pure radiance vita c made from wildcrafted berries from a company called pure synergy.
