Liposomes


May 9, 2017

Recent developments in technology have provided an alternative when it comes to vitamin delivery systems. It’s called “Liposomes,” a word that is derived from two Latin routes: “lipo,” meaning “fat” and “soma” meaning “body.” Using new methodology, vitamins and other essential micronutrients can be encapsulated in a layer of fat, which can both aid in absorption and protect it against damage in the digestive tract. In other words, it can help your body absorb more beneficial vitamins more efficiently than might otherwise be possible without the liposomes.
Liposomes have been around for a while, but the processes used in producing them has advanced significantly in the last ten years, making them a more viable option for micronutrient delivery. Liposomes offer a promising replacement for those of us struggling to get the bang for our buck out of ordinary vitamin supplements. For those worried about their nutrition, it’s a revolutionary option.
