Vitamin C [non-liposomal] bioavailability decreases with dose size
As dose size increases,
Based on previous recommended daily allowance (RDA) studies by the National Institutes of Health,

Authors found that Livon Labs liposome-encapsulated vitamin C nearly doubled bioavailability over that thought possible from studies published by the National Institutes of Health.

This book presents a new model, describing the action of Vitamin C in health. It demonstrates conclusively that the establishment has misinterpreted the evidence. The dynamic flow model explains the current results and points the way for future experiments. This book is a must for people who want to understand the scientific evidence and support for high-dose Vitamin C.
Liposomes can be used to effectively deliver therapeutic agents particular cell types (mononuclear phagocytic system, particularly macrophages). These cells are of particular importance in the immune system.

N-acetylcysteine (NAC) was encapsulated in liposomes and administered as a treatment for paraquat poisoning. Pretreatment with this liposomal NAC was found to be more effective than conventional drugs in reducing the effects of paraquat poisoning.
Liposomes were used to deliver peptides agents which normally break down in the stomach. Bioavailability in some tests improved by 460%.
Oral consumption of Setria®️ Glutathione may help to support skin elasticity in healthy women.
Supplementation with Lypo-Spheric® Vitamin C helped to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in as little as four weeks.
Scientists administered Magtein®️ to adults with cognitive decline helped to improve magnesium levels in the body and support cognitive function.

Scientists examined the mechanisms of the l-threonate component of Magtein®️ to discover why it can raise magnesium levels in the brain.
Researchers found that white blood cells absorbed 50% more Vitamin C from Lypo-Spheric® Vitamin C than a Vitamin C powder.
