Two of our most powerful and versatile antioxidants—Vitamin C and Lipoic Acid—are paired to support detoxification throughout the body. In addition to functioning as extraordinary antioxidants on their own, both can support increased levels of glutathione in the body. Even in small amounts Vitamin C can protect us from damage by free radicals. It is vital to immune function and is an essential cofactor in many enzymatic reactions in the body.
Vitamin C is essential to the body’s production of collagen and the formation of blood vessels, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and skin. It is needed for wound healing and to repair tissues throughout the body. In the buffered sodium ascorbate form used here, it is well tolerated.
R-Lipoic Acid (as the highly bioavailable sodium R-lipoate) can support the action of vitamin C. It is a potent antioxidant that can support healthy mitochondrial function, and may help the body remove metals. Both vitamin C and R-Lipoic Acid can help increase levels of glutathione, our master antioxidant and most important detoxifying molecule.
With oral dosing of conventional vitamin C, absorption decreases with increasing dosage due to gastrointestinal saturation, or “bowel tolerance.” For this reason, Quicksilver Scientific developed Liposomal Vitamin C, enabling effective, high level dosing. In addition, the formula uses Quali®-C, a premium “buffered” vitamin C in the form of sodium ascorbate. Buffered vitamin C is generally better tolerated by those with gastrointestinal sensitivity. In turn, sodium R-lipoate can reach peak plasma concentrations in ten to twenty minutes.
