What is the dosage and ingredients of a 15oz fresh pouch?
Lipo Naturals Sunflower Liposomal C comes in a liquid pouch, the dosage is one tablespoon of liquid per day. The full supplement facts label is to the right. Per dose, the potency of liposomal C is far greater than regular vitamin C supplements and so should not be directly compared to vitamin C pills or powders. We are Proud that Our Ingredients Contain No... MSG, Gluten, Alcohol, Artificial Preservatives, China-based ingredients, Soy, or Other Allergens.
How do I store Sunflower Liposomal C? Is the pouch BPA-free?
Unlike other vitamin C supplements, Lipo Naturals Sunflower Liposomal C is packaged in a specially designed pouch that uses many layers of different BPA-free materials to protect the freshness of the contents. For maximum potency over the course of your dosage with the product, we suggest you store the product in your refrigerator. It is still fine to take it on a trip or while traveling outside without refrigeration, the product will not spoil. Very old and opened product will just lose potency.
It says take on an empty stomach, how long before I can eat something?
Once you take your dose, if taken straight without other liquids, it's best to follow it with some water. This will help wash it through the stomach and speed absorption of the liposomal C. You can then eat shortly after your dose, about 5 to 10 minutes is plenty.
I live in an area with freezing/hot temperatures, how do I prevent the shipment from freezing/overheating?
Small volume shipments are sent without a signature required. If you have below freezing or very hot temperatures and an outdoor mailbox or your mail carrier typically leaves boxes at your door, you can request "Hold For Pickup" in your order notes on checkout. Your shipment will be held at your local post office in air conditioning to prevent freezing/overheating the liquid supplement. The mail carrier will deliver a pick-up notice to your mailbox.
The product has an offensive taste? Shouldn't it taste orange or citrus flavored?
The product is not spoiled - this is the normal flavor. Sunflower Liposomal C is not similar to traditional forms of vitamin C supplements. The citrus flavor in other vitamin C powders or chewables is because the vitamin C is not encapsulated and it has flavorings/sweeteners added... both of which are not the case with our product. Since our vitamin C is highly encapsulated in a liposome, most of it would not be tasted by the palate. Lipo Naturals Sunflower Liposomal C has no artificial flavorings or sweeteners added as well. As indicated on our pouch, it's best to mix your dose in a glass of apple or other juice (avoid hot beverages as this affects potency). Or you can take it straight and follow with some water to wash it down. Keeping the product as pure as possible does increase the potency and shelf-life, ensuring your body best takes advantage of the vitamin C.
I/My Child accidentally drank the whole pouch! What do I do?
The flavor of Lipo Naturals Sunflower is unpalatable for children and would prevent an adult from accidentally thinking it's a juice product or similar. In any case, unlike other vitamins, vitamin C is tolerated by the body in doses far beyond possible by even drinking a whole fresh pouch (15oz). There are no known toxic levels for vitamin C. Do not induce vomiting. Mix one rounded teaspoon of baking soda in a cup of water and have the individual sip it slowly to reduce the acidity. Keep the individual well hydrated. The symptoms of over-dosing are loose stool and perhaps some fatigue.
There's brownish deposits when I first pour it, is this normal?
As indicated on the back of the bag (above the supplement facts label), there may be some brown deposits in the product. This is from settling of the excess lecithin used in our processes. This excess may congeal to the bottom during shipping/storage. The product is not spoiled and it's fine to drink. As mentioned on the front of the bag, please shake well before each dose and you'll have a homogenous dose every time.
