In the past, nutritional supplements were poorly absorbed by our bodies mainly because of the way our gastric system ‘attacks’ them by rapidly dissolving and excreting them. Most of the good stuff is simply destroyed long before it can be absorbed into our system and start working to protect and aid us at a cellular level.
Now, new technology allows us to encase nutrients in a protective layer, guarding that which our bodies need to protect and heal us, such as vitamins, amino acids and minerals. This way, the nutrients are safely carried to where they can do their best work. Also, their circulatory life is extended so they stay in our system for longer.
Initially developed a decade and a half ago by pioneers LivOn Laboratories, liposomal encapsulation technology has revolutionised the supplements industry. Important to understand is that it involves a complex process that includes the correct physicochemical characteristics of ingredients; applying the appropriate medium for the nutrient cells and ensuring their effective concentration and delivery; and achieving optimum size and shelf-life as well as reproducibility.
This process can only be carried out in a properly equipped lab, and providers must be able to show the necessary reports that prove their product complies with all the standards. If it says liposomal, it’s not necessarily liposomal!
So make sure you use only trusted, proven brands like the original LivOn, which we are proud to offer in popular products such as the following:
