RIGHT: Scanning electon micrograph of a competitor’s irregular “liposomes.”
LEFT: 3D representation of the liposome’s particle size: tightly grouped data shows high process control.
RIGHT: 3D representation of a competitor’s “liposome” particle size: all of the data being sporadic and diffuse shows little process control.
Pair has 95% of its spherical liposomes between 50 nm and 420 nm (range of 370 nm) while company a competitor has a 95 % distribution of 50 nm to 690 nm (range of 640 nm). Furthermore, Pair also has higher concentrations of liposomes per dose. This illustrates the tight manufacturing control and stability of the Pair liposomes. All Pair Liposomal products adhere to this strict size distribution to ensure glutathione and vitamin C encapsulation for optimal performance. These size distribution charts are yet another example of how not all liposomal products are the same.
Liposomal Vitamin C
Provides Pharmaceutical Strength BioAvailability& Absorption and is without question the #1 choice of Healthcare Professionals & Consumers who understand the TRUE importance and wide range of potential health benefits that High-Dose Vitamin C Therapy has to offer.
Scientific evidence clearly shows the use of High-Dose Vitamin C Therapy to be extremely successful in treating patients with various illnesses. These Published Clinical Studies report that in many cases, the use of High-Dose Vitamin C Therapy can reverse certain illness & disease altogether.
At least 300 functions in the human body depend on adequate levels of Vitamin C, starting with the manufacture of collagen, a protein substance found in skin, ligaments, bones, and many other body tissues.
Many Scientists are now agreeing to the true benefits of Vitamin C, which can have a major effect on lifespan itself! A recent study by The University of Cambridge, using over 19,000 case subjects, directly connected High-Dose Vitamin C Blood Levels to longer life and a reduced risk of death by ALL causes by as much as 50%.
Almost ALL other traditional forms of vitamin C have absorption limitations that severely restrict the level of Vitamin C that can enter the bloodstream and most importantly… The Cells. When Vitamin C is orally taken (Pills, Powders, Tablets, etc.) and/or through Dietary/Food Sources, a very large percentage of the orally ingested Vitamin C simply gets flushed out of the body and does not get absorbed into the bloodstream and cells.
Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is a white, crystalline, water-soluble substance found in citrus fruits. As an antioxidant, vitamin C scavenges free radicals in the body and protects tissues from oxidative stress.1-8 Vitamin C also promotes the absorption of iron, while preventing its oxidation.9,10 Vitamin C is a vital cofactor to the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that supports arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth.5-7
More vitamin C is contained in the adrenal glands than any other organ in the body and is required at higher levels during times of stress.11-14 Physical stresses on the body such as ingestion of heavy metals,15-20 cigarette smoking,21-24 immune impairment,25-31 extreme temperatures,32-36 and chronic use of certain medications such as aspirin also signal the need for increased intake of vitamin C.37
A major immune-supporting activity of vitamin C is boosting glutathione levels in human lymphocytes,38 cells that make up about 25% of all white cells in the blood. Because humans do not manufacture vitamin C internally, it must be obtained through dietary sources or supplements.
Liposomes are microscopic spheres that form a “bubble” to encase therapeutic agents inside a hollow space within. This allows the therapeutic agents to be protected from the destructive elements of the digestive system which enables them to be transported right to the bloodstream and cells. The use of liposomes is referred to as liposomal encapsulation within the science community.
After years of research, MaxHealth Labs introduced a proprietary supplement delivery system that utilizes liposomes. As a result of this technology, the liposomal microspheres are designed to deliver the given nutrient intracellularly to increase absorption, while preventing digestive discomfort that is sometimes associated with oral supplements.

Flu, Viruses, and Vitamin C Megadoses: A Personal Statement
By Robert G. Smith, PhD
(OMNS, November 17, 2009) Like most Americans, throughout most of my life I have occasionally been down with a virus. But for a long time, a simple cold for me started as a headache, sore throat and congestion in my nasal passages, and typically progressed to prolonged infection in my lungs, and a terrible cough. The whole experience took up to two weeks for recovery from the virus, and several more weeks for my lungs to recover.
In his book Vitamin C and the Common Cold (1), Linus Pauling explained that vitamin C, taken at the proper dose, can prevent a virus from taking hold in the body. This pioneering book, written back in 1970, was ignored by many doctors but was well-received by the public. One chemistry professor told me that he had heard of Pauling’s book and the vitamin C therapy but didn’t think taking a big dose of an acid, even a mild one like ascorbic acid, would be good for the body. As for me, I imagined Pauling was probably correct about the details he had researched, because he was a renowned scientist and knew much more than most about biochemistry.Perhaps, I thought, he had simply gotten some of the medical details wrong or had missed some of the important studies about the effects of vitamins. But I started taking 1,000 mg of vitamin C every day and kept this up for several decades.
Two years ago, I decided to look further for myself. I looked online and found a recent book by Hickey and Roberts (2) that summarized 60 years of vitamin C research and revisited the issue of Dr. Pauling’s rejection by the medical establishment. Pauling and a few brave physicians had continued research into the use of vitamin C to prevent illness and had gained a lot of new knowledge and intuition about its use. The book explained that all of the studies showing little effect of vitamin C had serious flaws. It also carefully debunked the myths about hazards of vitamin C use. I also read Pauling’s newer book on vitamin therapy, How to Live Longer and Feel Better (3), and was amazed at his clear explanation of individual differences in the need for essential nutrients. Pauling had been right all along, and now there was a lot of new knowledge about how to use vitamin C for best benefit. Next, I found a book by Thomas Levy on the use of vitamin C to cure infectious disease. (4) All of these books contained numerous references to the scientific literature.
So I started taking 2,000-3,000 milligrams of vitamin C every few hours, and more when I went to bed at night. This caused no discomfort and only occasionally produced a minor laxative effect from vitamin C that was unabsorbed. Then, if I ever got an infection, I followed Dr. Robert Cathcart’s instructions about going to “bowel tolerance” of vitamin C. (5) Usually when I get a cold or the flu there is an initial period of several hours when I feel tired, with a slight headache, sometimes with a slight sore throat or sniffle. As the books described, I could stop the symptoms of the oncoming infection within an hour or two by taking a higher dose of vitamin C at shorter intervals (3,000-5,000 milligrams every 20 minutes). Did it work? Well, that first year I didn’t get any colds or flu, though in previous years I usually had 2-3 colds.
Continuing to read about vitamin C and its effects, I read the new Hickey and Saul (6) book. The authors presented a very clear rationale for ingesting vitamin C at a high level to bowel tolerance. Normally, the body does not take up vitamin C from the gut very efficiently at high doses. However, when the body is stressed with bacteria, viruses, or toxins, the need for vitamin C goes up tremendously, and the gut absorbs proportionately more.
Now, after two years of taking high doses of vitamin C whenever I feel symptoms of a cold or flu, I haven’t had any colds or flu. I have found, exactly as Hickey and Saul report, that it is possible to feel the symptoms wax and wane in one’s body in inverse proportion to the dose that one takes throughout the day. This is a helpful scientific observation that anyone can verify whenever one treats a cold or influenza with vitamin C. Although in previous years I typically got a secondary bacterial infection in my lungs, requiring antibiotics and another two weeks for recovery beyond the duration of the cold, now with my vitamin C therapy I simply don’t get a cough at all, much less a prolonged bacterial infection. From this experience, it is obvious to me that vitamin C helps to strengthen the immune response.
It is also now obvious to me that all the years I had been taking 1,000 mg/day and continued to get two or three colds, the amount was simply not enough. I ride my bicycle in to work throughout the year, even when it is freezing cold in the winter, and this puts a severe stress on my lungs. The books I’ve read explain that any severe stress, for example, a low-grade bacterial infection, or an injury, increases the body’s need for an anti-oxidant, and lowers the level of vitamin C in the blood. Although 1,000 milligrams of vitamin C per day does some good, it simply is not enough to suffice for the body’s needs when an infection comes on.
Most animal species make in the neighborhood of 5,000-10,000 mg/day of vitamin C in their own bodies; this is the norm for all mammals except primates, some fruit eating bats, and guinea pigs. And it is known that during times of stress or illness, the majority of animal species dramatically increase their need and production of vitamin C. We humans can respond to this increased need by taking megadoses of vitamin C when we start to feel a virus taking hold. When we do so, our bodies will be able to fight it off more readily.
Every year there are a few reports ostensibly showing some problem with mega-doses of vitamin C. But after close scrutiny none have held true, and the Hickey and Saul book explains why very clearly. Every individual 2,000-3,000 milligram dose I take allows my body, according to Hickey’s dynamic flow model, to eliminate any excess after the vitamin performs its function. No heartburn, sometimes a little gas, very little laxative effect, and this is reduced by lower doses. For me, this is a small price to pay for not having several prolonged three- to four-week periods per year during which I’m essentially out of operation with congestion and a terrible cough. If everyone could read the Pauling, Levy and Hickey and Saul books, I imagine we’d have a lot less illness in our country. Does this mean that we could stop the current flu epidemic with vitamin C? I suspect that if clinics around the country could make the facts known about vitamin C and give some simple instructions about its use, then yes, this could be accomplished. That is, if we take large enough doses.

Published Medical Quotes
• Vitamin C has received a great deal of attention, and with good reason. Higher blood levels of vitamin C may be the ideal nutrition marker for overall health. The more we study vitamin C, the better our understanding of how diverse it is in protecting our health, from cardiovascular, cancer, stroke, eye health, and immunity to living longer. (1)
• Vitamin C can truthfully be designated as ‘THE antitoxic and antiviral vitamin.” (2) • “We found that adequate intake of vitamin C was associated with longer survival in patients with heart failure. (3)
• The results from three recent Western studies also suggest that vitamin C may lower the risk of obstructive emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and other forms of chronic lung disease. COPD is a major cause of death and disability in the US and other countries. (4)
• More and more studies are finding dietary factors play a key role in lung function. In particular, there is evidence that individuals with a high intake of vitamin C, A, and E tend to have higher levels of lung function. (5)
• Allen Taylor of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University in Boston has been probing the relationship between cataracts and antioxidant vitamins, such as vitamin C, for more than a decade. Initially working with eye tissue in the laboratory, he and his colleagues have shown that vitamin C can slow the chemical reactions that make certain lens proteins clump together, causing cataracts. The group then demonstrated that giving animals the vitamin retarded cataract development. (6)
• The newest findings explain for the first time how vitamin C can react with and neutralize the toxic byproducts of human fat metabolism. This is a previously unrecognized function for vitamin C in the human body. We knew that vitamin C is an antioxidant that can help neutralize free radicals. But the new discovery indicates it has a complex protective role against toxic compounds formed from oxidized lipids, preventing the genetic damage or inflammation they can cause. (7)
• The authors of this revolutionary book present conclusive facts and demonstrations, describing that the medical establishment has misinformed the public through flawed evidence and science. The book clearly supports through scientific evidence the true and remarkable value of high-dose Vitamin C. (8)
• Each one of us produces several hundred thousand cancer cells every day of our lives. Whether we develop clinical cancer or not depends upon the ability of our immune systems to destroy these cancer cells. That’s because cancer thrives in the presence of a deficient immune system. (9)
• People who have low levels of vitamin C may be more likely to have a heart attack, stroke, or peripheral artery disease, all potential results of having atherosclerosis. Peripheral artery disease is the term used to describe atherosclerosis of the blood vessels to the legs (10)
• Vitamin C, acting as an antioxidant, can slow down the progression of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). It helps prevent damage to LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, which then builds up as plaque in the arteries and can cause heart attack or stroke. Other studies suggest that vitamin C may help keep arteries flexible. (11)
• Low levels of vitamin C have been associated with a number of conditions, including high blood pressure, gallbladder disease, stroke, some cancers, and atherosclerosis, the build-up plaque in blood vessels that can lead to heart attack and stroke. (12)
• We studied patients with advanced cancer (stage 4). 40 patients received 40,000-75,000 mg several times a week. These are patients that have not responded to other treatments. The initial tumor response rate was achieved in 75% of patients, defined as a 50% reduction or more in tumor size. . . As a radiation oncologist, I also give radiation therapy. Vitamin C has two effects. It increases the beneficial effects of radiation and chemotherapy and decreases the adverse effects. But this is not a subtle effect, is not 15-20%. It’s a dramatic effect. Once you start using IV vitamin C, the effect is so dramatic that it is difficult to go back to not using it. (13)
• Mr X has a lack of vitamin C and contracts a cold. The cold leads to pneumonia. Mr X dies and his body is taken to the mortuary…not with the diagnosis “lack of vitamin C”, but with the diagnosis “pneumonia”. This does not matter for him any more, but matters for the rest of mankind, which is mislead in its thinking and judgement about vitamins. (14)
• I would agree with Kalokerinos and Klenner that crib deaths are often caused by sudden ascorbate depletions. The induced scurvy in some vital regulatory center kills the child. This induced deficiency is more likely to occur when the diet is poor in vitamin C. All of the epidemiologic factors predisposing to crib deaths are associated with low vitamin C intake or high vitamin C destruction. (15)

Vitamin C Clinical Research
• A 2000 laboratory study showed that IV Vitamin C Therapy is toxic to a variety of cancer cell lines. (1)
• Clinical trials as near as 2008 note that Megadoses of IV Vitamin C therapy suppressed proliferation of the human melanoma cell line SK-MEL2. (2)
• Another study in 2007 said that Vitamin C in IV concentrations selectively kills some cancer cells but not normal cells. This data suggested that this provides a foundation for pursuing Vitamin C IV Therapy as a pro-oxidant therapeutic agent in cancer and infections (3)
• A published trial in 2006 noted that Vitamin C IV Therapy concentrations selectively kill cancer cells (4)
• A study in 2004 noted complete remission of cancer with no interference of conventional therapy. This study also reported the potential to even decrease the known toxicity of chemotherapy through the use of IV Vitamin C therapy. (5)
• A published trial in the Journal of Orthopedic Medicine referenced the use of infusions of 30 grams of IV Vitamin C, twice per week, and found that metastatic lesions in the lung and liver of a man with a primary renal cell carcinoma disappeared in a matter of weeks. (6)
• The Journal of Orthopedic Medicine reported a resolution of bone metastases in a patient with primary breast cancer using infusions of 100 grams, once or twice per week.—–REF: Riordan N, Jackson JA, Riordan HD. (7)
• A 1995 clinical trial found that Vitamin C is preferentially toxic to tumor cells suggesting that it could be useful as a chemotherapeutic agent. (8)
• Additionally a 1991 a clinical comparison was completed of IV Vitamin C Therapy as compared to that of non IV Vitamin C Therapy in treated animals. The concentrations of Vitamin C were significantly higher in the plasma of Vitamin C-treated as compared to that of non Vitamin C-treated animals. These findings demonstrated that Vitamin C inhibited DNA, RNA and protein synthesis in neoplastic epithelial cells, and thus exerts its antineoplastic effect. (9)
• A 1982 scientific study noted that in addition to the increase in survival times, the administration of IV Vitamin C Therapy seemed to improve the quality of life. (10).
• An early trial in 1978 by Vitamin C pioneer and advocate Linus Pauling concluded that the Vitamin C treated patients were found to have a mean survival time about 300 days greater than that of the controls. Survival times greater than 1 year after the date of untreatability were observed for 22% of the Vitamin C treated patients and for 0.4% of the controls. The mean survival time of these 22 Vitamin C treated patients is 2.4 years after reaching the apparently terminal stage. Eight (8) of the Vitamin C treated patients are still alive, with a mean survival time after untreatability of 3.5 years (11)
• A 1991 published report said that a 42-year-old man with histologically proven widely disseminated reticulum cell sarcoma in a remarkably short time enjoyed two complete spontaneous regressions of his fatal illness. Both these regressions coincided exactly in time with intravenous IV Vitamin C Therapy. (12)
• A recent study by The University of Cambridge, using over 19,000 case subjects, directly connected high dose Vitamin C blood levels to longer life and a reduced risk of death by ALL causes by as much as 50%. (13)
• The use of IV Vitamin C therapy has also been proven very effective even on the quality and improvement of life with terminal cancer patients. (14)
• There is evidence that high doses of vitamin C are required to yield systemic concentrations that in turn could become cytotoxic to tumor cells. (15)
• As early as 1949, the use of ascorbate in cancer treatment was documented. (16)
• It has been determined that at extracellular concentrations greater than 1,000 μM, vitamin C is toxic to cancer cells. “Riordan and co-workers showed evidence that the concentrations of vitamin C to kill tumor cells can be achieved in humans following intravenous infusion scheme. Source: Pharmacokinetics of Vitamin C: insights into the oral and intravenous administration of ascorbate. (17)
• Vitamin C in doses up to 50 grams per day, infused slowly, was not toxic to cancer patients and, even more importantly, some patients had complete remission after high doses following intravenous infusion. (18)
• The cytotoxic action of vitamin C is greatly enhanced by the presence of synergistic substances such as vitamin K3 or other quinones, lipoic acid, oxygen and futile redox cycling substances. (19)
• Published studies show that intravenous ascorbate dosing schemes can be properly used in order to achieve plasma levels equivalent to those early reported as necessary to kill tumor cells. (20)

Vitamin C Liposomal Resources
• Dr. Steven Hickey discovered that Liposomal Vitamin C almost doubled the bioavailability of blood levels over what was previous thought possible by studies published by the National Institutes of Health years ago. (1)
• Dr. Steven Hickey’s group has investigated different oral liposomal doses of vitamin C (5 to 36 grams), attaining plasma ascorbate levels greater than 400 μM. Accordingly, we can speculate that steadystate blood ascorbate levels of at least 500 μM could be achieved and sustained through repeated oral liposomal doses. (2)
• Traditional oral Vitamin C bioavailability decreases with each dose size. As dose size increases, the bioavailability is vastly reduced. These conclusions are based upon blood levels of 98% of a 20 mg oral dose of traditional Vitamin C being absorbed and bioavailable (enters the bloodstream) compared to only 16% of an increased dosage of 12,000 mgs. Thus the very large decrease in bioavailability as doses increase for traditional oral Vitamin C. (3)
• Using liposomes has greatly improved and updated the transfer of Vitamin C into the cells. (4)
• Using liposomes has greatly improved and updated the transfer of Vitamin C into the cells. This is by far the best way for Vitamin C to get into the hepatic system in its pure condition. (5)
• Liposomes provide a perfect way for Vitamin C to get to the liver in an unadulterated state. (6)
• Date shows that much more Vitamin C gets where it’s supposed to go—between 10 to 20 times more. Plus, there have been no reports of diarrhea or gastric distress from anyone. Even those who have taken up to 10,000 mgs of liposomal Vitamin C at one time have not reported any digestive discomfort. (7)
