A cornerstone of our metal detox protocols, Vitamin C with R Lipoic-Acid helps initiate detoxification.
Two Powerful Antioxidants in One
Buffered Vitamin C – A universal antioxidant that helps protect the body from the effects of free radicals and promotes immune function. Buffered to help minimize any GI discomforts associated with vitamin C.*
R-Lipoic Acid – This potent molecule can support healthy mitochondrial function, glutathione production, and may help the body remove metals.*
- Assists with metal detox.
- Buffered Vitamin C to prevent stomach issues.
- Supports glutathione production.
- Supports the immune system.
- Supports mitochondrial function, energy production and blood sugar.
- Suppors collagen production.
- Efficient liposomal absorption.
- Pleasant taste.
- Can be applied topically as well as a face serum.
- Neuroprotective effects.
Supports glutathione production
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 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.
Typical oral antioxidant supplements have poor bio-availability. Quicksilver Liposomal absorption technology delivers these key ingredients faster and more efficiently.*
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.
Liposomes protect nutrients to help prevent breakdown by stomach acid and facilitate intracellular delivery.*
Many liposomal products have large particles that absorb poorly. Quicksilver Scientific formulate products with particles that fall in an industry-leading 50-100nm range.
Their liposomes are so small they begin absorbing as soon as they hit the mouth. Faster delivery means faster results.
Superior Delivery. Immediate Effect.
Most liposomes on the market use low grades of phospholipids, e.g. raw lecithin, instead of the high-phosphatidylcholine phospholipid mixes necessary for a good liposome.
Quicksilver Delivery Systems improves upon basic liposomal delivery technology with smaller, more stable, tightly distributed single-layer spheres (called unilamellar vesicles) made from the highest-grade ingredients available. These small vesicles begin absorbing as soon as they hit your mouth, so you can get high absorption before they are altered by the harsh processes in the intestines.
