Liposomal Vitamin C is different in that it does not go through your intestines but goes directly to the liver through the stomach wall and from the liver directly into the bloodstream and then to the body's cells. This is according to all the reports that I have read. You can google it and read about all of its benefits. It is supposed to work even better than Vitamin C directly through an IV tube. I know that when I was taking it for about a week, I started passing a whole lot more critters! It works for me, not saying it will work for everyone. At the very least it will heal the damage done by these things. Regular vitamin c is poorly absorbed by the body and most of it passes out of the system unused. With the Liposomal Vitamin C you can take lots more of it because it does not cause stomach upset like regular vitamin C does. I hope this answers your question. Please google Liposomal Vitamin C benefits for more information about it.
