This blend of vitamin C (as sodium ascorbate) with R-lipoic acid
(as sodium R-lipoate) simultaneously supports the body’s antioxidant
status while supporting endogenous production of glutathione.
As an antioxidant, vitamin C scavenges and neutralizes free radicals, inhibits lipid peroxidation of cellular membranes, and supports levels of the other necessary antioxidants vitamin E and glutathione. Beyond its role as an antioxidant, vitamin C supports normal immune system function, cholesterol metabolism, and the growth and repair of collagen. It also is a cofactor in numerous enzymatic reactions, and is necessary for the synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters.
Lipoic acid has been shown to extend the biological activity of vitamins C and E, also raising ubiquinol (commonly known as CoQ10) levels and endogenous production of glutathione via the Nrf2 nuclear transcription pathway. Lipoic acid is able to cross the blood-brain barrier and it has been shown to have neuroprotective effects.
Quicksilver Scientific utilizes sodium R-lipoate for this formula as higher plasma levels of lipoic acid have been shown to be achievable when supplemented in the sodium salt form.
Vitamin C is provided as sodium ascorbate, as buffered forms are generally better tolerated than ascorbic acid by those with gastrointestinal sensitivity. This enables higher dosing while minimizing gastrointestinal side effects. We use European Quali®-C, a sodium ascorbate form of vitamin C that is produced in the green hills of Scotland, and is fully traceable to ensure a clean, GMO-free product.
Quicksilver Delivery Systems™ optimizes the bioavailability of vitamin C and sodium R-lipoate with this liposomal format. The phospholipids delivered with vitamin C and lipoic acid nourish the membranes of the cells, ensuring proper function for the absorption of nutrients and the excretion of cellular waste products and toxins.
The pleasant mildly citrus taste is suitable for intra-oral delivery for the best systemic availability. Product also may be dispersed in water or other liquid when desired. Topical application as a mask supports skin rejuvenation, antioxidant balance, and collagen formation.
