Making Homemade Liposomal Vitamin C
(Updated December 2010) On a fairly regular basis Bill Sardi generates something of great importance to those challenged with cancer. This past year was no exception. Bill has done the legwork to locate and post (complete with links to backup studies) evidence that Liposomal Vitamin C is capable of killing cancer.
While many have long held the suspicion oral Liposomal Vitamin C would kill cancer cells (just as intravenous Vitamin C) we lacked proof or studies to back up that belief. Well, no longer.
Posted January 2010 is a terrific Bill Sardi article titled “Researchers Achieve Cancer-Killing Effect With Oral-Dose Vitamin C“. Read it carefully and make judicious use of the supporting links.
Don’t miss the reference to sugar’s negative impact on Vitamin C absorption. Whether you decide to make your own homemade Liposomal Vitamin C Ascorbate or purchase one of the commercial versions it is clear you have a significant new option with scientific backing.
Reminder: If making homemade Liposomal Vitamin C you will want to consider making the Ascorbate version for blood pH. At the high levels of supplementation needed (several tablespoons daily) to affect cancer blood pH is an important consideration.
If you are near symptom free you can verify the efficacy of a Liposomal Vitamin C protocol using the Navaro HCG test. We’ll be interested in hearing of your experiences.
The recipe and supplement sources following will allow you to make quality liposomal encapsulated Vitamin C Ascorbate at a fraction of the cost of purchasing readymade Encapsulated Vitamin C or un-encapsulated Vitamin C Ascorbate.
The various manufacturers of production Liposomal Vitamin C all use the Vitamin C Ascorbate form for the blood pH reason discussed above.
For all the reasons above we recommend the following recipe over our prior homemade liposomal Vitamin C recipes which did not contain bicarbonate of soda.
What follows is a discussion by Brooks Bradley regarding Liposomal Encapsulation Techniques:
Dear List Members, I have been somewhat remiss in not supplying additional information which might make prosecuting an acceptable generation process….somewhat easier. To that end, I offer a few elaborating comments. First, using some form of blender to enhance/accelerate the process is perfectly acceptable….and effective. However, one must understand the limitations of using this modality. To wit: Because the entire encapsulation process is, essentially, a refined homogenization process the researcher is bound within the limits of the chosen process….itself. e.g. Using a blender in the early stages of the ultrasonic type protocol, places a limit (especially particle size) on the resultant compounds. As a general rule, the smallest liposomes achievable…are going to be larger than 150 nm in size—-even after extensive agitating. Therefore, if smaller particles are desired…..some procedure must be invoked to achieve this. Ultrasonic energy is an excellent way to achieve this. Ultrasonic energy applied to solutions having, previously, been mixed using mechanical blenders (of the household type) will improve the encapsulation process greatly (sometimes as much as an order of magnitude) through the immediate size reduction of the encapsulated particle size. Additionally, both power levels and exposure time experienced from the US energy……have a pronounced effect on the end product. e.g. simply by extending the time exposed to the US energy will yield a product with a majority of particles of a markedly reduced physical size (sometimes by more than one-half). Also, by increasing the power spectral density [energy delivered to the target], considerable size and complexity reduction may be achieved. (Sometimes from larger, multiple-layered liposomes, down to single-layered liposomes of much smaller size). This one characteristic, alone, should justify the selection of the larger US unit over the smaller one….as the larger US power level output is much higher. The way to capitalize on this advantage is to limit the depth of the parent solution in the larger US unit, to 3/4″ to 1″. Because the distance from the US energy! source and the mass of the target material DOES, in fact, have a powerful effect on the delivered energy. Direct visual observation alone, will confirm the powerful increase in cavitations (energy field) of the liquid medium. This type innovation will yield effects that in some cases….challenge the results of laboratory-grade, high pressure (over 3000 psi) impact plate systems…..costing $10,000 and up. What most commercial producers (and labs) do, is they RECIRCULATE their candidate solutions…..in order to achieve smaller—-and more isolated—-end products. By extending your exposure time, using shallow solutions, DIYs can…in many cases, actually challenge, to some degree, the levels accomplished by these very high dollar commercial machines…..using their own DIY homemade systems. Someone asked the question…does pre-agitation via blending devices damage or compromise the candidate solutions. The short answer is NO. Almost any type of agitation aids in the homogenization process. I have some descriptive information relative to the use of blending devices, which may prove of use to the list membership, but I must go at this time. Sincerely, Brooks Bradley.
This recipe will give you a product between 7.0 and 7.5 (measured with Alkalive pH Stix) or similar pH to human blood so there is no risk of over acidifying your blood should you take significant amounts of your homemade Liposomal Vitamin C Ascorbate.
(Blood pH is tightly controlled by the body at near 7.35 pH. If your blood pH were much above or below that number you would be a very sick person.)
Creating an identical pH in your liposomal brew is simply a matter of carefully adjusting the level of bicarbonate of soda.
This Vitamin C Ascorbate recipe is a compilation of several postings on forums and Pdazzler’s own trials in the kitchen.
1. In qt mixing jar pour 1 cup of distilled water. Add 3 level Tablespoons of granular soy lecithin (NOW has non-genetically modified soy lecithin) and agitate vigorously for 3 - 5 minutes.
Then place the lecithin mixture in the refrigerator for two or more hours. (You can leave in refrigerator overnight if you prefer.) This allows lecithin granules to soak up water for easy mixing into solution.
Note: Mixing can be accomplished easier if you raise the temperature of the distilled water being used to 45 degrees Celsius (113 degrees Fahrenheit). I have found this unnecessary in getting high quality mixtures but others have found this warmer temperature helpful.
After 2 hour soaking period vigorously agitate the mixture for another 3 - 5 minutes. At the conclusion there should be no lecithin granules visible. Set this smooth lecithin mixture aside.
2. Dissolved 1 level Tablespoon of Pharmaceutical grade Vitamin C powder in 2 oz. of distilled water. We recommend you use a 6 oz. or larger screw lid jar so you can shake vigorously.
3. Dissolve heaping Tablespoon of Bob’s Red Mill Bicarbonate of Soda (Bob’s is Aluminum free) in 2 oz. of distilled water using a separate 6 oz. or larger screw lid jar. Shake or agitate the mixture 3 minutes or until soda dissolved.
*One mole of sodium bicarbonate is 84 grams, and one mole of ascorbic acid is 176 grams. So, the correct (stoichiometric) ratio of sodium bicarbonate to ascorbic acid is 84/176 = 0.477. For example, it would take 477 milligrams of sodium bicarbonate to neutralize 1000 milligrams of ascorbic acid.
**What follows is often the most difficult part of the process for those new to making homemade liposomal Vitamin C Ascorbate.
While stirring the Vitamin C / distilled water solution very slowly pour/dribble the dissolved bicarbonate of soda/water mixture into the Vitamin C / distilled water solution. (Pour soda solution very slowly as the resulting mixture will bubble. By pouring slowing and constantly stirring you will be able to mix the two without bubbling over.)
At the conclusion of mixing the bicarbonate of soda mixture into the Vitamin C mixture all bubbling will cease. If you have any soda settled in the jar pour the resulting total mix together into that jar, swirl and pour the resulting Vitamin C / Bicarbonate of Soda mixture into the Ultrasonic Cleaner.
4. Pour the Lecithin solution into ultrasonic cleaner bowl with the Vitamin C / Bicarbonate of Soda mixture and stir the contents together.
5. Turn the ultrasonic cleaner on and using a plastic straw (leaving the top of the cleaner opened), gently, slowly, stirred the contents.
Note: The cleaner will, automatically, self-stop about every 2 minutes. Just push ON button to continue. Repeat for a total of 6 series (12 - 18 minutes). By that time the entire solution should be blended into a cloudy, homogeneous, milk-like mixture. The LET solution is now well formed.
You can raise the level of encapsulation by continuing several more ultrasonic cycles if desired.
This protocol furnishes 12 grams (12000mg.) of Vitamin C Ascorbate. At 70% - 90% encapsulation efficiency, 8400 mg would be of the LET type. This solution will keep, acceptably, at room temperature for 3 to 4 days. Refrigerated, it will keep much longer.
Note: A larger, more powerful, ultrasonic cleaner is available at Harbor Freight. Item number 91593. 2+ liters, for about $80.00. Both units perform well. The larger unit will allow you to make higher quality liposomal or more encapsulated supplement at one time, depending on the amount you mix.
Since Encapsulated Vitamin C Ascorbate is reportedly more efficient then intravenous Vitamin C make dosing increases and adjustments slowly paying close attention to your body.
2 oz. of Encapsulated Vitamin C Ascorbate is equals 16 - 20 oz. of intravenous Vitamin C so when you take a couple of 2 oz. doses in a day it’s like taking 16 - 20 oz. in your veins twice during the day.
With cancer you can create a Herxheimer’s effect crisis and overwhelm your body’s ability to dispose of the dead cancer cells if you’re too aggressive in your approach. Point being, start off easy (say a couple of one oz. doses a day) and work up slowly until your body says this is a good level.
Then plan to stay on your therapeutic dose level for a specific short period. Example: a few weeks to 90 days maximum. Treat this supplement much like you would intravenous Vitamin C. Listen to your body and don’t overdo it!
If you’re working on a serious cancer threat use frequent Navarro tests to keep track of the progress you are making.
