First my lipo C solution was cold - it was in the fridge ...
I stirred my bicarb in the same as you but got little to no foam. After it sat for a few seconds about a 1/16 of an inch of foam formed.
Could the temp have something to do with it?

I did a quick google and found this link which shows a - what looks like - picture taken from a microscope and scale of the liposomes.
If this is a real and correct picture, then providing what I think I am looking at is what I am looking at - you can see a "bubble within a bubble" which I assume shows encapsulation.
If you have a microscope that'll go down to that scale shown in the picture (100nm) it may be worth a go.
Depending upon the process used to form the liposomes, their size can range from 5,000 nanometers down to 100 nameters. Sizes under 400 nanometers require a very special process called microfluidization. Although the smaller sizes hold less material, they are much more stable and better suited to navigate the human digestive system. LivOn Laboratories has chosen to use liposomes that range from 300 to 400 nanometers for their nutritional products because of these advantages.

If you have time, see what you can find on dark field and liposomes or at least how to prepare the slide etc, or anything else of interest using the MS

There's a helluva difference between ultrasonically blasted and shaken, not stirred. I'm as poor as a churchmouse but just got a job offer today (YAY!) and I just ordered the supplies from Amazon. This sounds like a really great idea. I already take lecithin capsules and swear by them. They have great memory, anti-aging and verbal recall effects, and I think the combination of lecithin and vitamin C is genius. Linus Pauling was called the smartest man of the 20th Century for his work on Vitamin C.
Small plug: a good source for the supplements would be purebulk.com. Very pure ingredients, good prices and very fast shipping. No relation to them, just live nearby and know of their reputation.
Thanks again, OP, I'm in your debt. Hearing about this is as good as the job offer I got today... I have family members besides myself who I think could really benefit from this.

Alright well its 3 hours later and I have assembled my ingredients, bought my cleaner, and have made my mixture.
It took much longer to get the milky white look to it than the 30 min several websites said. I think maybe that's because my lecithin mixture was not mixed (blended) smooth enough. I had some semi solid stuff - the lecithin - accumulate in the bottom. That stuff remained the color of the lecithin and never incorporated into the mixture so I'm guessing not all the lecithin got emulsified or whatever it is doing.
Eventually though I got the milky look ...
It also had that vitamin smell that vitamins have ...
I and my gf took some on a empty stomach about 20 minutes ago.
I thought the taste wasn't bad at all. My gf didn't care for the taste much.
Will report what I experience - if anything ...
Love information like this ... thanks to the OP for bringing it to our attention.
here is a picture of it ....
I circled in red the lecithin that settled out ...
Oh and btw its been an hour now since we took it and I am feeling pretty good ...
I feel very awake ... hmmmm ... we'll see ...
