I have used the Livon brand in the past. However I was pleased to see another brand of Liposomal Vitamin C for a cheaper price and bought quite a few of these. I also liked the fact that it is sunflower lecithin instead of soy. However the contents of the capsule were grainy and acidic, indicating that the Vitamic C was not even dissolved. This raises the doubt of whether this is even Liposomal. How can the vitamin C be encapsulated if you can taste it and feel the graininess. I contacted Dr Mercola about this and the staff gave me a stock standard response that he only makes quality products, but didn't really address my concerns. Some people report that it helps. All I can say is give it a try if you want, otherwise try another brand or make your own. (I have no experience in making my own or whether it even works well)

Purchased this product and it seemed to work well but I have since read the following warning which has been added to the product listing after I purchased the product. I won't be using this product anymore. Not worth the risk. Not sure why Iherb deleted this review. I Have contacted Iherb and the company. Iherb don't know anything about it and the company never replied. California Proposition 65 Warning: Warning. This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.
I have taken this product quite a bit in the past but it is hard to tell if it helps. I was unsure about the soy but am happy to see they now label it as 100% GMO Free. I wonder whether the product has always been GMO free. The quality seems good but the price is very expensive and can no longer afford to buy this. I have also noticed that the ingredients now shows that it contains xanthan gum and EDTA. It previous did not have these ingredients and it seems unnecessary to add them.
I love the fact that this product is pure vitamin c powder. No filler and no flavour. I also like the fact it is pharmaceutical grade, GMO free and a reasonable price. You only need 1/4 tsp to get 1g of vitamin C. I will keep buying this product.
5-HTP is the only thing that has helped me with long term difficulty sleeping. I take 1 capsule (100mg) with melatonin to help me sleep. When I first started taking 5-HTP I could literally feel myself falling off to sleep. Such a lovely feeling when you have had sleeping trouble all your life. I have not noticed any side effects and will not go without 5-HTP. I would give 5 stars if it didn't contain filler ingredients.
