Latest News - Study "Highlights" LivOn's Bioavailability
Kenneth H. Carson, Ph.D., a Research Scientist in SRI's Department of Microencapsulation and Nanomaterials, used Fluorescent Microscopy to capture the "uptake" of liposomes in LivOn's Lypo-Spheric™ Vitamin C into human cells living in a culture medium. The liposomes were labeled with a red fluorescent substance that enabled Carson to track their movement around and into the cells.
His series of vivid images initially showed the labeled liposomes "to have incorporated into the space occupied by the cells." In subsequent images, the labeled liposomes were "clearly seen to be within the membranes" of the cells."
Since the substance liposomes are made of is known to be digested by cells, the images provided "compelling evidence" that LivOn's Lypo-Spheric™ Vitamin C delivers pure vitamin C directly inside the cells. This research also substantiates what LivOn has always believed: That Lypo-Spheric™ Vitamin C is more effective than any other vitamin C preparation. Period.
