Les Nachman, Founder; Co-founder, Les Nachman, owes his life to Vitamin C. Because of his vision, intuition and determination after a personal health crisis, LivOn Labs was the first to bring Liposome Encapsulation Technology (LET) dietary supplements to market. LivOn Laboratories was born out of a desperate personal need. Liposomes are nutrient-filled, double-layered bubbles made from essential phospholipids. Liposomes protect and deliver nutrients to cells throughout the body. Liposome-encapsulated supplements offer maximized bioavailability with every dose. The therapeutic value and greatly increased delivery of liposome-encapsulated drugs and nutrients has been scientifically confirmed countless times. At present, liposomes are the most bioavailable oral way to deliver nutrients. There are a plethora of liposomal supplements to choose from. Some are great, many are not. In many cases, the price of the product will be reflective of the quality of the product. The cost of making high-quality liposomal supplements with superior raw materials, top-notch manufacturing equipment, and a sufficient amount of product testing is 2-3 times higher than the cost of making a typical dietary supplement (tablet, powder or capsule). But the most important thing is finding liposomal supplements that work best for you – from a company you can trust.

You have a magnificent self-healing body - you have it all. Your body knows how to heal itself - it is trying to do so now. Give your body the proper care it needs - allow your body to completely heal itself, and it will.
David Klein PhD
When people take vitamins, the vitamins don't specifically do it. They enable the body to do it, they enable the body to heal itself. This is a totally different way of looking at it.
Dr. Andrew Saul
Your body is a miraculous space. It's the home of your Soul. It knows what its doing - even with the tiniest of cuts it has a plan. Your role is to support it. Let your body do what it does best by giving it everything you know it needs and leaving behind the habits that hold it back. It's your body - it's your journey - make it amazing.
The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human body, in diet and the cause and prevention of disease
Healing through nutrition is "not a medical miracle, It's the inherent, self-repairing, miraculous, protective, self- healing machine the human body is already when it is fed optimally - the body takes care of itself . . . It's health you've always had the right to that was taken away from you."
Dr. Joel Fuhrman
The body will continue to heal itself, as long as you provide the environment for it to heal.
