Liposomes, a tiny spherical vesicle, are used as structures
that encapsulate and carry drugs, nutrients and other substance directly to the
cells and tissues for improved uptake and absorption. They’re called liposomes
(lipo- meaning fat and -soma meaning body) because they’re basically made up of
phospholipids – a type of lipid that is a major structural component of our cell
membranes (the outer layer of the cells).
An important function is to regulate the transport
of nutrients and other substances across the cell membrane. As ‘gatekeepers’
they play an integral role in determining what goes in and out of the cell.
- Allow cell membranes to be fluid, which helps cells to change shape to
adapt to environmental challenges
- Function as signalling molecules or
messengers in cellular communication systems (for example, phospholipid
molecules signal white blood cells to travel to a site of infection or injury)
- Protect cell membranes against oxidative damage caused by free
Benefits of Liposomal Technology
Liposomes form a protective barrier around their ‘encapsulated contents’. This
barrier protects the nutrients/drugs against degradation by enzymes (in the
mouth and stomach), digestive juices, bile acids and intestinal micro-organisms.
Liposomes also shield the nutrients against free radicals.
protective phospholipid shield or barrier remains undamaged until the contents
of the liposome are delivered to the exact target gland, organ, or system where
the contents will be utilized.
When you ingest traditional supplements
orally, their content undergo decomposition at many levels in the digestive
system, thus resulting in low bio-availability and a low absorption rate. With
liposomal technology, nutrient payloads are able to bypass these degradation
steps and the enclosed nutrient is directly released into the bloodstream and
from there into the cells and tissues, where it needs to be.
works in favour of liposomes is that they are composed of the same fat that your
membranes are made up of. This allows liposomes to easily penetrate the cell
membrane barrier and reach the target cell.
In short, liposomal
supplements offer the following benefits:
1. Improved bio-availability
2. Enhanced uptake and absorption of nutrients by cells and
3. No side effects as gastrointestinal distress often experienced when a high dose
of supplements is taken orally.
4. Cost effective. If you absorb more of a
nutrient, you can take less for the same effect.
overall health. This is perhaps the greatest benefit of all. If you take
liposome based supplements, you get more of the nutrients into your system. This
creates an environment suitable for optimal performance for your body systems.
Intravenous use has the same advantages but is expensive, time-consuming,
complicated and carries certain health risks.
Liposomal encapsulation of therapeutic agents is a ground-breaking delivery
process, a fact that is supported by decades of studies.
- “Use of
liposomes as delivery vehicles for sustained (vitamin) release and controlled
absorption could be a promising approach for improving the therapeutic potency
of active pharmaceutical ingredients.”
- “Because of their unique
liposomes are able to enhance the performance of products by
increasing ingredient solubility, improving ingredient bioavailability and in
vitro and in vivo stability.”
