A word about lecithin:
Soy lecithin may be chemically extracted. There are some concerns about chemical residues in the lecithin (hexane or other solvent). Two products have been mentioned as an alternative: a non-chemically extracted, non-gmo soy lecithin, or a raw, cold-pressed sunflower liquid lecithin. The recipes below use the commonly available soy granular lecithin, and experiments are underway using the liquid sunflower lecithin. There is a great amount of interest in sunflower lecithin due to allergies and concerns about phytoestrogens in soy.
Liposomal C RECIPE from:
Heat one cup of distilled water in a ceramic coated or stainless steel pan on your stove (do not heat it in a microwave oven) until almost boiling.
Pour the water into your blender and add three level tablespoons of lecithin and blend until all of the lecithin is totally dissolved in the water.
In one cup of cold distilled water, dissolve one level tablespoon of ascorbic acid. Make sure it is totally dissolved, very important!
Add the ascorbic acid mixture to the lecithin mixture and blend well.
Pour the mixture into the ultrasonic cleaner and turn it on. Stir frequently.
When done, pour mix into a resealable GLASS jar and store in your refrigerator.
Take one teaspoon full of mix once a day.
You can experiment with this amount after you have taken it for awhile to see how it effects you.
Take on an empty stomach and wait at least 15 minutes before eating anything.
Many take it in the morning before breakfast.
It is really sour tasting so many chase it with water to get the taste out of the mouth.
The cleaner will turn itself off about every two minutes or so. You continue to stir frequently and turn the cleaner back on until ALL of the foam is gone. Repeat: Continue to stir and turn the cleaner back on until ALL OF THE FOAM IS GONE!! This will take about 30 minutes or so. When done you will have a mix that is about the color of milk. There will be some settling but shouldn't be much, less than 5% of the mix or so.
"I want to point out some critical steps that were not made clear in any of the recipes.
First of all, at least 30 minutes before you start blending anything, you should:
Soak the Lecithin granules in room temperature water. Within 25 minutes all the granules should be soft. This is important, do not skip.
Dissolve the 1 TBsp of Vitamin C crystals in ½ cup of COOL water. Keep stirring until all the crystals disappear. This is important, do not skip.
Heat 1 cup of Distilled water until hot, but not boiling.
Pour the hot water into a blender or a narrow, tall (over 7 inch tall) container for a stick or immersion blender. Pour the softened Lecithin granules into the hot water, blend for a few minutes. This will blend quickly.
Wait until the Lecithin emulsion is room temperature – lukewarm at the most. Heat will destroy the Vitamin C. This is important, do not skip.
When the Lecithin emulsion is cool, pour in the dissolved Vitamin C solution. Blend for a minute. This should not take long because both items are already dissolved. There will be some foam, but not much.
Make sure the interior of the sonic cleaner is clean. Fill to max line and run. Change water. Repeat until you feel it’s clean. Do NOT use ANY cleaners, other than natural vinegar. Empty & wipe dry.
Pour the blended emulsion into the sonic cleaner. Keep the lid open, use a plastic straw or non-reactive implement for stirring (something that has not been used for anything else). I sat down in front of the sonic cleaner on the counter with a timer. I set the timer for 30 minutes and kept stirring. Do not skip.
This is where the magic happens. Stirring makes sure as much of the liquid as possible is exposed closely to the sonic element where the encapsulation process happens.
Do NOT eat anything for at least an hour before taking your dose.
The only thing you should ingest after the dose is Distilled Water.
Wait at least 30 minutes (longer if you can), before eating after you’ve taken your dose."
, "By soaking the lecithin for at least an hour, I am able to make the lipo C without any hot water and without a cool-down wait. I use room-temp distilled water only."
Recipe (with Sodium Bicarbonate)
This recipe will give you a product between 7.0 and 7.5 (measured with
Alkalive pH Stix
) or similar pH to human blood so there is no risk of over acidifying your blood should you take significant amounts of your homemade Liposomal Vitamin C Ascorbate.
(Blood pH is tightly controlled by the body at near 7.35 pH. If your blood pH were much above or below that number you would be a very sick person.)
Creating an identical pH in your liposomal brew is simply a matter of carefully adjusting the level of bicarbonate of soda.
This Vitamin C Ascorbate recipe is a compilation of several postings on forums and Pdazzler’s own trials in the kitchen.
Using a small (2 cup) Ultrasonic cleaner, (
Item #03305, obtainable from Harbor Freight
@ about $30.00), we performed the following:
1. In qt mixing jar pour 1 cup of distilled water. Add 3 level Tablespoons of granular soy lecithin (
NOW has non-genetically modified soy lecithin
) and agitate vigorously for 3 - 5 minutes.
Then place the lecithin mixture in the refrigerator for two or more hours. (
You can leave in refrigerator overnight if you prefer
.) This allows lecithin granules to soak up water for easy mixing into solution.
Mixing can be accomplished easier if you raise the temperature of the distilled water being used to 45 degrees Celsius (113 degrees Fahrenheit). I have found this unnecessary in getting high quality mixtures but others have found this warmer temperature helpful.
After 2 hour soaking period vigorously agitate the mixture for another 3 - 5 minutes. At the conclusion there should be no lecithin granules visible. Set this smooth lecithin mixture aside.
2. Dissolved 1 level Tablespoon of
Pharmaceutical grade Vitamin C powder
in 2 oz. of distilled water. We recommend you use a 6 oz. or larger screw lid jar so you can shake vigorously.
3. Dissolve heaping Tablespoon of
Bob’s Red Mill Bicarbonate of Soda
(Bob’s is Aluminum free) in 2 oz. of distilled water using a separate 6 oz. or larger screw lid jar. Shake or agitate the mixture 3 minutes or until soda dissolved.
*One mole of sodium bicarbonate is 84 grams, and one mole of ascorbic acid is 176 grams. So, the correct (stoichiometric) ratio of sodium bicarbonate to ascorbic acid is 84/176 = 0.477. For example, it would take 477 milligrams of sodium bicarbonate to neutralize 1000 milligrams of ascorbic acid.
What follows is often the most difficult part of the process for those new to making homemade liposomal Vitamin C Ascorbate.
While stirring the Vitamin C / distilled water solution very slowly pour/dribble the dissolved bicarbonate of soda/water mixture into the Vitamin C / distilled water solution.
(Pour soda solution very slowly as the resulting mixture will bubble. By pouring slowing and constantly stirring you will be able to mix the two without bubbling over.)
At the conclusion of mixing the bicarbonate of soda mixture into the Vitamin C mixture all bubbling will cease. If you have any soda settled in the jar pour the resulting total mix together into that jar, swirl and pour the resulting Vitamin C / Bicarbonate of Soda mixture into the Ultrasonic Cleaner.
4. Pour the Lecithin solution into ultrasonic cleaner bowl with the Vitamin C / Bicarbonate of Soda mixture and stir the contents together.
5. Turn the ultrasonic cleaner on and using a plastic straw (leaving the top of the cleaner opened), gently, slowly, stirred the contents.
Note: The cleaner will, automatically, self-stop about every 2 minutes. Just push ON button to continue. Repeat for a total of 6 series (12 - 18 minutes). By that time the entire solution should be blended into a cloudy, homogeneous, milk-like mixture. The LET solution is now well formed.
You can raise the level of encapsulation by continuing several more ultrasonic cycles if desired.
This protocol furnishes 12 grams (12000mg.) of Vitamin C Ascorbate. At 70% - 90% encapsulation efficiency, 8400 mg would be of the
type. This solution will keep, acceptably, at room temperature for 3 to 4 days. Refrigerated, it will keep much longer.
Note: A larger, more powerful, ultrasonic cleaner is available at Harbor Freight.
Item number 91593
. 2+ liters, for about $80.00. Both units perform well. The larger unit will allow you to make higher quality liposomal or** more encapsulated supplement at one time, depending on the amount you mix.
Since Encapsulated Vitamin C Ascorbate is reportedly more efficient then intravenous Vitamin C make dosing increases and adjustments slowly paying close attention to your body.
2 oz. of Encapsulated Vitamin C Ascorbate is equals 16 - 20 oz. of intravenous Vitamin C so when you take a couple of 2 oz. doses in a day it’s like taking 16 - 20 oz. in your veins twice during the day.
With cancer you can create a Herxheimer’s effect crisis and overwhelm your body’s ability to dispose of the dead cancer cells if you’re too aggressive in your approach. Point being, start off easy (say a couple of one oz. doses a day) and work up slowly until your body says this is a good level.
Then plan to stay on your therapeutic dose level for a specific short period. Example: a few weeks to 90 days maximum. Treat this supplement much like you would intravenous Vitamin C. Listen to your body and don’t overdo it!
If you’re working on a serious cancer threat use frequent Navarro tests to keep track of the progress you are making.
"Since I got good results I will recap the method I used for those interested ...
First my Vitamin C powder is 5000mg per teaspoon ...
Second my Lecithin is 1680mg per tablespoon ...
I measured 3 level tablespoons of granular Lecithin and mixed it with a spoon in one cup of distilled water ...
Let the lecithin soak for at least 30 minutes ...
Then I measured 1 level tablespoon of vitamin C powder and mixed it with a spoon into 1 cup of distilled water dissolving it completely ...
Then I took the lecithin solution and put it in a blender on high for 1 minute ...
Next I poured the vitamin C solution into the blender and blended on high for 20 seconds ...
Finally I poured the mixture into my stainless steel jewelry cleaner (from Harbor Freight Tools) and ran the cycles,
, until all the foam was gone (long time 30+ minutes) ...
The results are an oily sour tasting solution that has a consistency of watery milk and looks like it too. It has maybe the slightest bit of an orange to yellow hue.
The total volume of solution is 2 cups. The total C in the solution is 15,000mg. At a 1 oz dose there are 16 doses in this recipe. Each dose has 937mg of C with at about 700mg encapsulated. At an 80% absorption rate in the body you should get 560mg of C per dose.
Compare that to 1000mg of C in pills at 16% absorption for 160mg of C.
Good luck to all!"

"Also See my
and read what that
has to say. That thick gelatinous stuff is just extra lecithin and is unnecessary. It came from using less water and more lecithin as you and I have already discussed.
I think as long as you are precise about the measurements of 3 to 1 with 2 cups water total it will produce perfect results.
I think math genius yogurt is just wrong on this ...
He is comparing the homemade brew to what he got commercially. The problem is that the commercial product is made completely different - it doesn't use ultra sound at all. So he it trying to mimic the texture of the product by using less water and more lecithin. While that doesn't hurt anything it also doesn't make the solution any more encapsulated. Even in his video he said what is important is 3 to 1 and then proceeds to use 4 to 1.
Metric Recipe from RogerT3
7g Ascorbic Acid powder in 150ml of cold RO water (that's about half a tbl sp in 2/3 cup)
21g Lecithin granules in 150ml of hot (just off the boil) water. (so 3:1 by weight)
Lecithin mix was blended with 700W hand held blender (more efficient than a table top blender) for 60s. It made a very smooth milky creamy mixture.
Acid mix was shaken until all AA was dissolved
Both mixes added together and blended for another 60s
250ml into USC, 50ml kept in glass jar as control
pH taken at most points, see results below
USC ran for 5 minutes on 50W power.
It then needs about 5 mins to cool down or it won't start up again (must have heat cut off)
pH tested and another 5 mins of US treatment, followed by cool down and a final 5 mins.
pH of Lecithin mix: 6.2
pH of AA mix: 2.7 (5% mix of AA would be around 2.2 ish, lemon juice pH is around 2.0)
pH of both together: 3.2
pH after 5 mins: 3.3
pH after 10 mins: 3.3
pH after 15 mins: 3.4
pH of control after 10 and 15 mins: 3.5
