Dr. Mercola's Liposomal Vitamin C uses liposomes (fat) to increase the bioavailability of vitamin C, since water-soluble vitamin C is not absorbed well. Liposomal Vitamin C can also potentially ease intestinal discomfort associated with taking high amounts of vitamin C.
Dr. Mercola has been providing quality products since 2001.
Adult take two Licaps capsules daily with food and water, or as directed by your healthcare professional.
Sunflower lecithin, medium chain triglycerides, vegetable cellulose, beeswax, paprika extract (for color).
Do not use if safety seal is broken.
Keep out of reach of children.

I have doubts about the authentic liposomal claims of this product. I've been using the Livon Labs product for over two years now and find it very good. I purchased the Dr Mercola's product trusting it would be as good as it claimed. The quantity in the capsule is very small compared to Livon Labs, and on cutting open a capsule for inspection I was dismayed by what I found; a firm paste consistency that when rubbed through the fingers, distinctive "gritty" feel of the ascorbic acid crystals is felt - this shouldn't occur if the ascorbic acid is coated by the lipids. The taste test confirms it also... it has the unmistakable sour tang of ascorbic acid. If you're familiar with the Livon Labs product, you'll know what I'm talking about. It's disappointing, and I expect this product is no more beneficial than taking regular ascorbic acid - but at an inflated price.
I also have used Livon Labs Vitamin C in the past, however I decided to try Dr. Mercola's Liposomal Vitamin C instead (because of the lower price). After seeing iLove-iHerb’s review, I decided to cut the capsule in half and was displeased to see that there was noticeably less ascorbic acid in Dr. Mercola's than Livon Labs. I found the contents very grainy and the taste was sour which is uncharacteristic of Liposomal Vitamin C. Overall I learned my lesson (what a waste of $18).

I'm taking 4 cap of mercola liposomal, 6 tablets of GNC vitamin C tablets daily. Overall complexion improved but I won't know who to give credit to. I dont feel any big difference..
Go-to Vitamin C

This is the product I will take travelling to South America. It has proved itself in helping fight viral infections as well as a persistent UTI. I have tried making my own Liposomal C - but it's messy in nature with a yukky taste, I'd rather trust this product any day. It is useful for people on the move looking for strong Vitamin C protection.
think it's good

I dont think as good as Lypricel, but did seem to be effective in various ways.
