"Dehydroascorbic acid is absorbed readily into the blood and dispersed throughout the human body, including large deposits into the human brain. This DHA is readily reduced, two hydrogen atoms are added to the compound, and ascorbic acid is formed. The transport of dehydroascorbic acid is much more efficient for the human body than transporting Vitamin C. Vitamin C is not as easily absorbed and requires more energy to mobilize. The body’s obsession with energy efficiency makes the transport of dehydroascorbic acid an acceptable alternative."

Drinking per se Liposome / V.................
If you have studied lipids you know that the head turn to liquid and the tail stays away from it. So the head is hydrophilic and the tail is hydrophobic.
However it has been found that this also applies to certain solvents also and when this reaction occurs theses lipid’s also cluster together to form a liposome or a sphere of individual lipids. Ethanol is a solvent that this occurs in so it is readily available in most states as pure grain alcohol or 180 proof white lighting. In commercial production various other forms of this product are used but require refined purification methods are needed to remove the byproducts.
In the following I’m going to outline how this process works!
I’m leaving out the details of quantity because there are so many variables that only experimentation of amounts would be a individual preference!
In the first step were going to institute this reaction.
We take a beaker and add the ethanol to it, then take a slightly smaller amount of lipids and blend the two together gently. This forms the liposome’s. Wait at least 10 minutes to allow for this reaction!
DO THIS OUTSIDE ANY STRUCTURE IN OPEN AIR!!
Next is evaporation Ethanol has a flash point of 61.9* F so it don’t take much heat to get it to disappear without damage to the liposome’s. As you can imagine the flash of water is @ 212*F and at that temp. your cooking the liposome’s. I would say that water at 100*F in the tray should give rapid results in evaporation. Once again remember your working with a flammable liquid here and it’s vaporized making it more flammable. Once the ethanol has disappeared and the liposome’s are dry. Remove the beaker and let it cool to ambient temperature.
Now mix your Ascorbic acid and water you want a mix that is just above a paste. So Put you AA in first then add water and stir till it’s a moveable liquid. Keep a little bit of the AA mix here!
Now add this to the Dry Lipo’s. and gently agitate to get it to blend together. Don’t shake or stir just a gentle movement.
Now get out the ultrasound this method depends on the power of your unit! If it’s High power you can keep it in the beaker and zap it in surrounding water.
Low power, pour mix into unit and add the left over AA mix as a rinse for the beaker.
Zap it till mix looks blended if not keep zapping till it looks mixed.

1. Pour out sample of LVC about 10g, record the exact weight (W1).
2 Add deistilled water about 50g, record exact weight of added water (W2).
3. Gently mix and then let Liposoms go down. Pour out water with dissolved non liposomal AA into another glass. You can easily separate up to 90% of it from liposomes. Record weight of separated solution (W3).
4. Measure pH of separated solution and in small steps add sodium bicarbonate and well mix. Wait until it dissolves. Do until pH goes over 7. Record weight of added sodium bicarbonate (W4).
5. Count amount of non encapsulated AA as W=2,1*W4*W2/W3. Count encapsulation as 1-W/(W1*original percentage of AA/100).
Mine homemade LVC gets result about 50% or more. Batch I made Yesterday get 65%. Theoretical geometrical maximum is 74%.
My Zesterday data:
W1=8.1g, W2=39.4g, W3=35.8g, W4=0.222g, percentage of AA in LVC is 17.9%.
Simnple method so why don't use it to check our products?
Note: You have to separate liposomes out, because they would be destroyed by sodium bicarbonate crystals and all will fail.
jeff wrote:Thank you for your reply. I appreciate that the other components of lecithin may contribute to encapsulation. Putting that aside for the moment, can you think of any reason not to increase the amount of lecithin to approximate the 9.4% PC in the Livon formula (f the mixture becomes too thick, just add water, right?)

Encapsulation comes out as 0.33582974899829346735914362809071 and none encapsulated AA (W) gives me 0.51308044692737430167597765363128 this is assuming that the 2,1 is 2.1
Is there an error somewhere? I have calculated it many times but get no where close to 65 (%).
This would need to work correctly before anyone is going to use it.
