LivOn Labs Altrient C is a liposomal form of Vitamin C and is the first choice of people who really understand bioavailability and the importance of high-dose vitamin C.
Most ordinary forms of oral Vitamin C – tablets, capsules, powders, liquids and even dietary sources are not metabolised efficiently due to tightly regulated absorption controls in the body. This means that levels of vitamin C in the intestines reaches saturation point at as little as 200mg. In fact, the more we take in the less we absorb. Thus, very little reaches your blood stream let alone the cells where it is needed most. Until recently intravenous delivery of vitamin C has proven to be the most effective route for absorption, but this method is both costly and impractical.
Altrient C offers the perfect solution because of its scientifically proven liposomal delivery method. This powerful form of transportation encapsulates the nutrient in a microscopic phospholipid bubble that carries it within minutes directly to the cells, protecting it from the destructive elements of the digestive system. Altrient C is the most effective option for ensuring your body has adequate vitamin C levels.
Altrient C benefits:
- Contributes to the normal function of the immune system
- Contributes to the normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin, blood vessels, bones, cartilage, gums, and teeth.
- Contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system
- Contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
- Contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress
Altrient is Liposomal Vitamin C; liposomes are minute bubbles of healthy fat that encapsulate and protect the vitamin C. These lypo-spheric bubbles act as a vehicle transporting your dose of vitamin C into your body efficiently. The benefit of using a liposomal vitamin C is that virtually all the vitamin C gets into the bloodstream and any issues of bowel discomfort associated with oral vitamin C tablets are totally avoided.
Directions: As a foodsupplement take one to two sachets of Altrient vitamin C per day. For best results, snip or tear the notched end off the packet, squeeze into one or more ounces of your favourite cool beverage, drink on an empty stomach, and wait at least 15 minutes before eating.Store in a cool, dry place, can be refrigerated. Do not freeze or place the product in direct sunlight for extended periods of time. Altrient will stay 100% effective for a minimum of 22 months from the date of manufacture. The expiration date is on the bottom of each carton and on each packet as “EXP --/--”.Do not exceed the stated daily dose. Food supplements are not a substitute for a varied diet. Keep out of the reach of young children. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, consult a healthcare practitioner before using this product.
You should consult your doctor before starting a supplementation program that includes any form of vitamin C if you have hemochromatosis, any type of hemolytic anemia, G6PD deficiency, known kidney insufficiency or failure, or you are currently taking a blood thinner like warfarin (Coumadin).
Serving Size: 1 Sachet (5.7mL). Servings Per Container: 30. Amount Per serving: Vitamin C (as sodium ascorbate) 1,000 mg, Phospholipids 1,000 mg, Of which phosphatidylcholine 500 mg, Phosphatidylethanolamine 144 mg, Phosphatidylinositol 24 mg.

Why don’t the Altrient® products dissolve in water?
It is this very lack of solubility that makes liposomes impervious to stomach acids and bile salts. It also gives them quick and easy access into the bloodstream and enables them to slip across cell membranes as they quickly and safely transport nutrients to their intended destination.
Is Sunflower Lecithin Safer than Soy Lecithin?
Most of the phytochemicals in soybeans are also found in sunflower kernels, the source of sunflower lecithin. Like soybeans, sunflower kernels are well known to have protease inhibitors, phytates (phytic acid), saponins, isoflavones, oxalates and more.1 We have not found any evidence that soy or sunflower lecithin is unsafe. Sunflower lecithin is a wonderful source of phospholipids; it is not going to contain the same amounts of phytochemicals as a whole sunflower kernel. The same applies to high quality soy lecithin and purified phospholipids extracted from soy lecithin – neither are going to contain the same amounts of the phytochemicals found in raw soybeans.  Dr. Katherine Phillips of the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University compiled a comprehensive paper that covers the range of phytochemicals found in sunflower kernels in her Final Report on the “Phytochemicals in Sunflower (Helianthus annuus)” from April 2000. This paper can be downloaded from the National Sunflower Association at http://www.sunflowernsa.com/seed/sunflower-kernels-in-bakery-foods/phytochemicals-in-sunflower-kernel/.

The recommended dosage of each Altrient® product is one sachet, taken 1 to 2 times per day. We recommend that you consult your healthcare practitioner before taking dosages that are higher than the recommended dosage. Please note the Altrient® products are not intended to prevent, cure or treat any specific health condition or disease. If you are experiencing a health problem, we recommend finding a healthcare practitioner that is experienced with advanced, alternative medicine.
Should I take the Altrient® products on an empty stomach?
We recommend you take the product on an empty stomach because it will enter the bloodstream faster, however the product may be taken with food or after a meal and it will still be fully absorbed by the body. For those who are prone to low blood sugar levels, the Altrient® B should be taken just before a light snack or meal. Hypoglycemic substances, like caffeine, should be avoided.
Are the Altrient® products safe for pregnant and/or breastfeeding women
While the Altrient® products contain nutrients that are vital to a healthy mother and baby, we recommend consulting with your healthcare practitioner before consuming any Altrient® supplements while pregnant or breastfeeding.
Why do you use preservatives in the Altrient® products?
Preservatives are used in our products to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria and mold. We use preservatives that are best suited for each formulation. We only use the minimum amount necessary to provide you with safe, effective products.
Can I still use the product if it was outside in extremely cold or hot temperatures?
Yes! The Altrient® products are routinely tested for changes in consistency and ingredient concentration at -20°C and 40°C. When stored at -20°C, the active ingredients will remain effective for at least 2 months, but the integrity of the liposomes may be damaged when frozen for more than 2 months. When stored at 40°C, the active ingredients of each product will remain effective for 1-2 months.
Can I mix Altrient® products in hot beverages like coffee or tea?
We do not recommend mixing any of the Altrient® products in hot beverages like coffee or tea. For best results, we recommend taking the product with a cool beverage.

Are the Altrient® products safe for pets?
The Altrient® products are formulated for humans. Some of our customers have chosen to supplement their pet’s diet with the Altrient® Vitamin C and GSH, and have seen positive results. We recommend consulting with your veterinarian before starting any supplementation program for your pets.
Is there foil used in the Altrient® packaging?
The Altrient® sachet is comprised of a silver material that is laminated with two layers of polyethylene to provide a barrier between the layer of foil and the liquid product. This barrier protects the product from potential leaching, and from oxygen and moisture.
Are the Altrient® products safe for children?
The Altrient® products are formulated for adults. Please consult your child’s physician before giving your child any Altrient® product.
Is there any soy protein in the Altrient® products?
We use Essential Phospholipids (EPL), which are made from non-GMO soy lecithin. Virtually all of the soy protein, which is of allergic concern to some individuals, is removed from the EPL during the extraction process. While we cannot guarantee our products do not contain trace amounts of soy protein, we routinely conduct DNA testing on each product with an independent laboratory. To date, the laboratory has not been able to detect any amounts of soy protein in our products.
Can I blend the Altrient® products in a food processor or blender?
We do not recommend blending any of the Altrient® products in a food processor or blender. Altrient® supplements are encapsulated in liposomes. Although these tiny bubbles are impervious to digestive juices and protect their valuable contents from oxidative degradation, they can be damaged with heat or violent agitation.
How do I identify a “legitimate” liposome encapsulated supplement?
We have spent years researching the best formulation techniques and manufacturing processes for liposome encapsulated supplements. We work with some of the top liposome experts in the country, and they can evaluate the quality of a liposomal product through ingredient assays, particle size analyses, and liposome encapsulation efficiency tests. So as part of our ongoing research, we analyze every liposomal supplement we come across. While we can’t share the exact details of every liposomal product, we can give you guidance on some basic things to look for when determining the quality of a liposomal supplement.
Are there any supplements or medications that should not be taken with Altrient® products?
The Altrient® products contain high-potency nutrients that should not interfere with other common dietary supplements when taken by a generally healthy person. If you are taking other dietary supplements under the direction of a physician, we recommend consulting your physician before adding Altrient® supplements to your regimen. While the products contain well-researched nutrients that are taken by millions of people around the world, it is possible they could interfere with certain medications. For example, vitamin C in any form can lessen the blood-thinning effects of Coumadin or Warfarin. We urge anybody on either of these medications to supplement vitamin C and any other antioxidants under the guidance of their physicians only, so that the desired prolongation of prothrombin time can be achieved. If you are on prescription medication, we recommend you consult your healthcare professional or pharmacist before taking any Altrient® supplements. We also recommend you consult your healthcare practitioner before taking Altrient® R-ALA if you are taking glucose lowering medication, or receiving treatment for under-active or over-active thyroid.
Can I still use the Altrient® C if the sachets are puffy?
Yes! The sachets may expand as latent air from the filling process tends to expand over time. This does not affect the quality of the product.
Can I take the Altrient® products at the same time?
Yes, the Altrient® products can be taken at the same time.
