Nutrient Tree Liposomal Vitamin C Review
- Unique formulation- liquid form helps your body absorb it better than other ascorbic acids
- Decent taste- inoffensive flavor makes it easy to take every day
- Massive dose- contains over 16 times the recommended daily amount, which can cause issues over time
- Doesn't use real Vitamin C- made from ascorbic acid, which you won't absorb as effectively
- Pricy- price point is high for a product of limited effectiveness
Because it was the only liquid-based Vitamin C supplement we tried, we were interested to see how Nutrient Tree Liposomal Vitamin C compared to the competition. The verdict? We liked the liquid...but the rest could use improvement.
First off, this is an ascorbic acid supplement, not a true Vitamin C supplement. Your body won't use it as efficiently, and so you're going to need a lot more to see similar results.
That's why this product has such an unbelievably high dose. Each serving gives you 16 times your daily recommended allowance...and if that sounds good to you, keep in mind that the vast majority of this will just go through your body unabsorbed.
The manufacturer recommends mixing it with water or your favorite beverage, but before you mix it, be aware that it has a strong (but not necessarily unpleasant) orange flavor. We mixed it exclusively in water, but you can experiment to see what you like best.
The fact that it comes in a drink actually makes it pretty easy to take regularly, so if you just can't remember to take a pill, you might consider this. Other than that, though, this product has difficulty keeping up with the competition.
The good thing about Nutrient Tree Liposomal Vitamin C is that it's gluten-free, soy-free, and vegetarian, so it should be suitable for all dietary restrictions. Since it's a liquid, you don't have to worry about swallowing a massive pill, either.
The bad thing about this supplement? Since it uses such a massive dose, you might see some stomach issues as a result- cramps, diarrhea, and more. Not everyone will have an issue, but if you have a stomach that's the least bit sensitive, you might want to look for a supplement with a smaller, more effective dose.
This was actually one of the pricier options we tried, possibly due to the difficulties in manufacturing and storing a liquid supplement. When you consider the fact that you'll only get limited absorption, this throws the overall value of this product into question.
If you just can't take a pill, then Nutrient Tree Liposomal Vitamin C might be the supplement for you. If you're looking for the best Vitamin C supplement, though, we can't rank this one any higher than third. While you'll see some positive results, you'd be better off with a product that uses a reasonable dosage of real Vitamin C.
