Liposomal technology: A more powerful way to defeat nutritional deficiencies

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

liposomal-technology(NaturalHealth365) Nutritional deficiencies are an ongoing problem even for those eating a ‘healthy’ diet and taking nutritional supplements.  In fact, in many cases, the digestive process can destroy the nutritional value of supplements before they reach the cells.  This is why liposomal technology offers an effective solution to the problem.

The idea is to provide a delivery system that helps nutrients bypass destructive elements of digestion – like, stomach acid.  Liposomal technology offers a powerful solution for those suffering with nutritional deficiencies by delivering more nutrients to the cells per serving.

At the heart of liposomal technology is the mighty liposome.  Liposomes are spherical vesicles with one or more lipid bilayers, essentially a bubble filled with liquid.

Liposomal technology effectively delivers nutrition – right on target

The problem with certain kinds of vitamins is they don’t make it to the intestines intact, so the dose that enters the stomach is not the same dose that goes into the bloodstream. Scientists call that ‘low bioavailability.’

In 1965, hematologist Alec Douglas Banghan along with Jeff Watkins and Malcolm Standish discovered that a liposome has the unique structure, one that holds onto its contents until it connects with something that has a similar bilayer.

That different structure makes the liposome an ideal transport mechanism for drugs and more sensitive nutrients. As a delivery system, a liposome has a way of encasing what is inside from everything but cell membranes because they have the right structural makeup.

Liposomal encapsulation technology protects nutrients with its unique ‘security system’

Liposomal encapsulation technology packs medication and nutrients in a safer container (the liposome) so that it can survive the stormy waters of the digestive tract. The bilayer membrane serves as a security guard to protect whatever is inside the bubble.

With the help of that tough membrane, the liposome pushes past the destructive forces and fuses with the right cell membrane at the right time – giving it access to what’s inside.

Labs can take a blank liposome and inject medication or nutrients into it, keeping them safe from:

  • Enzymes
  • Alkaline solutions
  • Digestive juices
  • Bile salts
  • Intestinal flora
  • Free radicals

That protection ensures the package reaches the organ, bloodstream or system intact and at full dose.

Liposomal technology is the ‘gold standard’ for delivering supplemental nutrition

When a person takes a particular type of supplement like vitamin C, and a liposome doesn’t protect it, it loses much of its nutritional value by the time it gets to a place it can be absorbed. Using liposomal technology allows supplement manufacturers to provide better quality nutrition with each product.

The benefits of liposomal vitamins and supplements over tablets or capsules include:

  • Better absorption and bioavailability
  • Nutrients protected against the harsh environment of the GI tract
  • Increased uptake
  • Natural (non-toxic) delivery system

In addition, liposomal supplements tend to be easier to swallow for many people that dislike pills or capsules.

Studies show that around 68 percent of Americans take dietary supplements.  And, most think that when they do take them, their body will enjoy the full benefits, but that might not always be the case.

By buying supplements that use the liposomal encapsulated technology delivery system, the health conscious consumer gets the total therapeutic value from a nutritional supplement.
