Liposomes greatly enhance effectiveness for supplements with poor bioavailability, but have limited stability and are less convenient in liquid form.
ALIVE BY SCIENCE introduces LIPO Caps™ the Gold Standard in supplement delivery systems that provides maximum nutrient absorption throughout the body and is clinically proven to enhance the bioavailability up to 6x more than liquid liposome formulations(1)
Liposomes encapsulate active ingredients in a phospholipid "bubble" to protect and deliver them directly to the cells of our tissues, which are reached via the bloodstream.
They are specialized delivery vehicles serving multiple roles in enhancing the capabilities of active ingredients.
Liposomes stabilize therapeutic compounds—overcoming obstacles to cellular and tissue uptake—and improve the biodistribution of compounds to target sites.
- Protects ingredients from digestion in stomach and intestines
- Greatly increased circulation time in the bloodstream (not filtered out by liver)
BENEFITS OF LIPOSOMAL DELIVERY
The increased bioavailability of Liposomal Delivery make it:
MORE ECONOMICAL - MORE BANG FOR THE BUCK
Manufacturing liposomes does add cost to the finished product, which is why their usage has been more limited for vitamins and supplement as opposed to expensive pharmaceutical drugs. However, a 2x increase in cost is vastly outweight by the 5-20x or greater increase in effectiveness of liposomal delivery.
MORE EFFECTIVE - HIGHER LEVELS OF SATURATION IN TARGET TISSUES
Many popular supplements such as Curcumin, Resveratrol, Berberine, Apigenin, Quercetin and others are well documented to have extremely poor bioavailability. When you're taking a supplement that has 5% or less bioavailability, it is not possible to achieve high blood saturation levels safely. Liposomes deliver much higher quantities of the target molecules to the bloodstream.
SAFETY - MINIMIZES LIVER TOXICITY FROM EXCESSIVE DOSAGES
Many nutraceutical supplements have been shown to cause problems in the liver at higher dosages. The risk of liver damage greatly limits the dosage that can safely be used, which diminishes the effectiveness. The liver does not filter out molecules delivered by liposomes, so the risk from toxicity is greatly diminished.
Many people realize Liposomal delivery provides more "bang for the buck", but it is clear they also enable much greater effectiveness and safety, and should be used for all products with known bioavailability problems.
