Which is better Ascorbic acid or L-Ascorbate acid?
L-Ascorbate is better than ascorbic acid as it is made from whole food sources & also includes:
Ascorbic Acid does not contain these minerals. 12foru uses only non gmo L-Ascorbate acid. Ascorbate is however still synthetically produced although better than ascorbic acid it should only be used in conjunction with whole vitamin C as the LIPO C recipe reflects.
What makes our Lipsomal Vitamin c different?
Vitamin C is also involved in hormone biosynthesis and maintaining the integrity of connective tissue, cartilage, capillaries, bones, and teeth. Vitamin C is , therefore, important in wound repair and tissue healing. Vitamin C has been shown to increase cellular resistance to many common viral infections (most probably due to its interferon-like activity) and enhance specific parameters of immune function.
NOTE: Generally, when small doses are used (1 gram or less), little to no significant effects were reported. When larger doses are given (20-200 grams/day), significant positive changes are typically reported.
Almost all conditions, acute or chronic, can have shortened courses and patients respond favorably. Vitamin C has virtually no side effects. Vitamin C has been given up to 300 grams per day, taken intravenously, without reported side effects.
This approach to determining your need for Vitamin C is of the next generation and builds upon the experience gained with “bowel tolerance” determination of Vitamin C with ascorbate needs. Our livers would be making vitamin C steadily, with increases commensurating with distress, if we had not lost that key enzyme. Thus, for best health, it is important to take Vitamin C regularly and steadily. Often gas, cramps, and diarrhea occur at rather low doses of ascorbate (below 10 grams).
If a person wants to or must stop Lipo C for any reason, it is important be taper gradually. Sudden cessation of Lipo C liposomal vitamin C does not allow the body time to accommodate to the change, and the body will continue to metabolize/excrete large amounts. You must reduce your Lipo C level by several grams/day over a sufficient period (depending on how much you were taking) to prevent this from occurring. Using the C Flush is important. Many helpful things happen at the vitamin C saturation level that will not happen otherwise.
Appropriate doses are recommended throughout life and Lipo C can effectively charge up the cellular electron pool, promoting cellular healing and metabolism, purging the body of foreign invaders, and providing a base on which to build health. Over a period of Lipo C use, the amount of vitamin C necessary to achieve bowel tolerance changes and fluctuates. During stress or illness, many times more can be taken (and is appropriate to take) than at other times.
***Dr. Cathcart also notes that low dose vitamin c had basically no effect, but high dose vitamin c, when taken at 80-90% of bowel tolerance, produced a significant and dramatic reduction of symptoms in his patients.
How do you do an ascorbate calibration liposomal C cleanse?
When possible, it is best to start (especially the first use of this protocol) on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning. Allow yourself that day to finish the “flush”. Note: most people saturate their vitamin C need within a few hours. Occasionally, the need is much greater, and it may take a number of hours to complete the initial calibration “flush”. Be sure to drink plenty of water while doing the flush.
The half-life of Vitamin C in the body is about 30 minutes. That means about a hour after you take Vitamin C, your body has used up most of it. So an important key to this protocol is to keep your body saturated with C all day. Dosing every 1-2 hours is ideal.
To determine dosing :
**Continue with these instructions at the proper time intervals until you reach a watery stool or an enema-like evacuation of liquid from the rectum. This is as if a quart or so of liquid is expressed from the rectum. CAUTION : Do not stop at loose stool. You want to energize the body to “flush out” toxins and reduce the risk that they may recirculate and induce problems. At this time, stop consuming the lipo C for the day.
HOWEVER, if your calibration dosage is more than 50 grams of vitamin C, you should consume a dosage of vitamin C of at least 10% of the total Lipo C need to induce the L-ascorbate calibration “flush” in the later afternoon or evening.
It works the opposite of what you would expect because you don’t build up a tolerance. The healthier you become, the lower your bowel tolerance for Vitamin C will go.
If you reach bowel tolerance at 10-15 grams or less per day, you’re considered to be in very good shape health wise.
Changing LIPO C Need
As you become healthier, the Lipo C (vitamin C) is used more efficiently and is better conserved in your body and less Lipo C will be needed to achieve the desired effect. As your need for vitamin C decreases, you may notice loosening of the stool indicating that your body is consuming vitamin C more efficiently and your need has decreased. That is the time to taper Lipo C intake. As you become familiar with your body’s responses, your need for and best timing of Lipo C is likely to become clear through direct experience with this protocol.
Daily Consumption of Ascorbate after Calibration (C Cleanse )
Between calibrations, consume 75% of the total Lipo C you needed to induce the flush. The usual sufficiency need for a person in a state of good health is 2-10 grams/day.
Hints for Calculating Daily Therapeutic Ascorbate Requirement
Outcome of Lipo C Flush
Many people report a subjective sense of improved well-being after the completion of a Lipo C calibration. This may be of short duration, initially, but is a promising sign for long-term improvement. As toxins are eliminated from the body and as it is energized through the action of the ascorbate, you should feel progressively better for longer periods of time.
Repeat of LIPO V Calibration
For most rapid progress, once per week is recommended. You select the frequency that meets your needs. Repair deficits increase Lipo C needs over time until a consistent dose of vitamin C is maintained. Discuss with your practitioner the right frequency for you.
Potential Problems with Lipo C Calibration Process
Be sure to consume adequate water with each ascorbate dose. The approach described above will help you in this regard. Any concern about fluid loss from the stool is thus minimized. Some people report gas or fullness while doing the Lipo c calibration “flush”, but that is almost always due to rushing the procedure. Room temperature liquid is best for absorption. Cramps may occur, though rarely.
Hints & Insights
Most people find that the flush is easy to do. Since the amount of time can vary quite a bit, it is best to do your first Lipo C calibration on a day when you can stay home for most of the day. Once you have done a vitamin C calibration/flush, you will have a better idea of how much time is needed. For most people, it takes somewhere between 3-8 tablespoons of Lipo C lippsomal vitamin C to flush. It could differ for others: 15, 20, or more than 200 grams depending on your health status and how quickly your body uses up vitamin C. Sometimes people remain bloated for the rest of the day of calibration. Occasionally, people have loose stools for a day or so after doing the Lipo c flush.
People with hemorrhoids, irritable bowel disease, or inflammatory bowel disease may find that the Lipo C activates their tissues in the healing process. Usually, people find that they feel better than they have in a very long time after the first Lipo C flush. Some report a greater sense of well-being after the second or third. The overall consensus is that as time goes on doing these calibrations helps people feel increasingly better.
When introducing higher dosages of vitamin C your cellular machinery works harder and more efficiently, so other supplementation is recommended to support Lipo C
Supporting Supplementation Recommendations:
Pink Sea Salt
B vitamins & Zinc via Bee pollen 1⁄4 teaspoon working up to 1-2 teaspoons daily
Magna Mag a hol Spray / Oral
Boron Water (as per boron document)
Individualized components always play a role
Note: ***In my current experimentation with this process I have maintained the dosing to bowel tolerance so that stools are on the looser side daily & that is working very well to help to clear not only the bowel but also the liver of congestion, toxins, candida build up, parasites, and lurking heavy metals.

3John 1:2 "Beloved I pray above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in good health even as thy soul prospereth"
Early symptoms of Vitamin C deficiency, or scurvy are malaise and lethargy. That’s basically a “general feeling of being unwell” along with tiredness and/or exhaustion.
Does this sound like you?
After a few months comes shortness of breath and bone pain. Further down the road you maybe experiencing muscle pain, skin sores, gum disease, loose teeth, wounds that do not heal, dry mouth, dry eyes, and emotional problems. In the later stages one may experience jaundice, edema, fever, convulsions, and eventually death.
The cure for scurvy was ignored for nearly 200 years after its discovery
Nutrition and natural therapies are still ignored modern medicine. In fact I’d be willing to bet that if you went to see a doctor with some of the symptoms of scurvy that I listed above, you be subjected to a barrage of expensive tests, misdiagnosed, prescribed pharmaceutical drugs, and subjected to treatments for some other disease
Here are some common whole food sources of Vitamin C
The body keeps a small reserve of Vitamin C available for use when there is increased internal demand, but when you are sick this is quickly depleted.
According toThomas Levy MD, liposomal vitamin C shows a ten-fold increase over the effect of IV vitamin C: I found that liposome encapsulated vitamin C, taken orally, was roughly 10 times more effective clinically in resolving infectious diseases than the IVC. Having given thousands of IVCs and taken hundreds myself, this was difficult to comprehend, even though the clinical observation was quite straightforward.
Have you ever taken Vitamin C when you had a cold and it didn’t help? This is probably because you didn’t take near enough.
3John 1:2 "Beloved I pray above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in good health even as thy soul prospereth"
Vitamin C supports nearly every system in your body: your adrenals, your immune system, your
cardiovascular system, and more. Perhaps the most important is that it is a neutralizer of free radicals and its intracellular delivery,
Suggested Usage / Dosing
For a cold – 2 teaspoons every 1- 2 hours the first 24 hours. 2 teaspoons 4 X a day for 2-3 days after until symptoms are gone then resume maintenance dosing.
For flu - Although it's more serious, the viral load is similar, according to research, and following the above schedule should be sufficient.
For shingles - Research has shown that this painful post-viral condition can be pretty well cured by using Lipo c Liposomal vitamin C. 1 tablespoon 4 X a day until symptoms subside.
For a hangover - Taking 5,000 mg daily in the week before a booze-up reduces stress on the liver. If you're drunk and want to look sober, a large dose of vitamin C will prevent drunken behaviour, according to a 1986 study, "Alcohol and Alcoholism
For children daily maintenance these references are helpful: Up to age 3: based upon their age (1,000 mg – 3,000 mg for 1- yr-olds; 2,000 mg – 4, 000 mg for 2-yr olds, etc., in divided doses)
••This is for maintenance not for sickness. (calibration may used for children as well)
Viruses & Bacteria replicate to full strength within 2 hours taking every 1-2 hours stops this replication
Referring to the work of Robert Cathcart, MD, we suggest the ability to tolerate daily oral vitamin C varies between 6,000 and 16, 000 mg daily, if you have ordinary (not severe) health (poor to average) status. Cathcart’s clinical experience demonstrates that almost all humans tolerate 4 grams of vitamin C daily. (See calibration instructions)
The daily allowance may not prevent or resolve disease that comes from deficiency of vitamin C. Cardiovascular disease, as an example, requires from 8,000 to 50,000 mg Vitamin C daily; cancers may require 100,000 to 200,000 mg daily.’ (Excerpt from the research of Drs Hickey & Roberts)
**Vitamin C is safe, is not a cause of "stones" (C can actually help dissolve them), and is "generally regarded as safe" (GRAS). It is recognized by the FDA to be safe and it is usually compared to the toxicity of water. Water and vitamin C are critical for human health, and generally considered non- toxic. No reports of death by vitamins are known.
A healthy person can take anywhere from 4-15 grams (4,000-15,000 mg) of Vitamin C in a 24 hour period without getting the runs, but a sick person can tolerate anywhere from 10-20 times more. Even as much as 100-200 grams orally per day.
