What is a Liposome?
Liposomes are tiny nano-sized bubbles with an outer shell comprised of healthy lipids and a hollow aqueous center that can be filled with a variety of substances, such as vitamin C, glutathione, astaxanthin, or a complex supplement formula like that found in NanoVite Life.
Scientists have long postulated that the outer layer of the liposome protects the supplement core from gastric juices and liver enzymes; now, clinical studies are showing that liposomes support the absorption of nutritional supplements and as a result, they have excellent efficacy.
Cell Absorbing The Phopholipids and Nutrients Within
The Importance of Phosphatidylcholine
Researched extensively by scientists, Phosphatidylcholine has been shown to play a vital role in many important areas including maintaining cell structure, fat metabolism, memory, nerve signaling, as a precursor to important neurotransmitters, and liver health.
Phosphatidylcholine levels in the cell decrease as we age. Found in very high concentrations when we are born, particularly in brain tissue, a normal part of the aging process is these levels decline over time. By supplementing with Phosphatidylcholine in addition to what we get from our regular diet, we can increase the levels in our cells and halt or even reverse the age-related decline. Many studies have found Phosphatidylcholine supplements can improve learning, aid memory, help promote healthy skin elasticity, and even support optimal liver function.
So, when you take a supplement from Living Spheres, our liposomes help your body absorb the nutrition and use it better than if you had taken regular vitamins. You are also receiving the additional benefits of the critical molecule Phosphatidylcholine with greater bioavailability than other sources.
We Believe Our Liposomes are the Best Available and Here’s Why
All natural phosphatidylcholine is classified as lecithin, which is a description of purification rather than a material identification. We use natural non-hydrogenated sunflower phosphatidylcholine, derived from non-GMO certified sunflower oil from Europe. It undergoes a several-step, solvent-free purification and filtration process to ensure the utmost purity.
Our liposomes are the optimal size for absorption, as small as 50 nanometers. We use no soy ingredients, and our flavors are completely natural and delicious. Our liposomes are naturally non-gluten, alcohol-free, vegan, and made with non-GMO ingredients.
Our manufacturing facility is cGMP certified, following the same standards of sanitation and documentation that pharmaceutical companies do. Each ingredient is carefully sourced and 100% of them are tested in-house and by a world-recognized third-party certified lab. The water used is classified as Ultrapure Water, exceeding pharmaceutical grade.
Sunflower vs. Soy
As stated, our product uses non-GMO Sunflower Lecithin from Europe. Some companies offering Liposomal supplements use Soy Lecithin in their products. Here is an interesting article on the differences: Soy Lecithin Dangers
Given the many dangers and side-effects of soy-based products, not to mention the fact that soy lecithin is a byproduct of a nasty process, we do not recommend liposomal products whose phosphatidylcholines are derived from soy, however, we recommend that you conduct your own careful research if you do wish to use a soy-based product.
