Frequently asked questions

What is a Liposome?

A liposome is microscopic sized spherical sac or sphere of phospholipid molecules (phosphatidylcholine) enclosing a nutrient, such as vitamin C or glutathione. Enclosing the Vitamin C in a liposome allows the Vitamin C to pass through the stomach acids and bile salts in the digestive (GI) tract and into the bloodstream without causing stomach or intestinal distress.

What are Essential Phospholipids (Phosphatidylcholines)?

Phosphatidylcholines (PC) are a class of phospholipids that incorporate choline as a headgroup. They are a major component of biological membranes and can be easily obtained from a variety of readily available sources such as soybeans. They are also a member of the lecithin group of yellow-brownish fatty substances occurring in animal and plant tissues. Given its role in cellular functioning, it’s no exaggeration to say that without the presence of phosphatidylcholine, life as we know it could not exist. In fact, research shows that ingesting high concentrations of quality PC provides enormous health benefits in terms liver, cardiovascular, kidney, lung, gastrointestinal (GI), neurologic, and skin function.

What is Liposomal Encapsulation Technology?

Medical experts have used Liposomal Encapsulation Technology for numerous years to transport minute amounts of beneficial substances to specific organs or cells without being altered and without adversely affecting other parts of the human body. Many health-promoting substances can be encapsulated in Nano-sized liposome spheres.

What is the Source of the Lecithin Used in Your Products?

The lecithin we use in our products is certified NON Genetically Modified Organisms (NON GMO) and derived from the oil extracted from soy which contains no soy protein. The allergenic component of soy protein is removed prior to our proprietary manufacturing process. Since there is no soy protein in our lecithin, there is a very slight chance of acute allergic reaction. People with extreme soy allergies or sensitivities should however be cautious.­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­
