Delivering the Goods

A Liposome allows the
nutrient to be delivered
directly to exactly where it
is needed, inside the cell


A Small Dose Makes a Big Difference

The Lipolife range was born out of the need to supply high quality, highly absorbable liposomal products, manufactured in Europe, designed to improve health and well-being. The ultimate goal, to create a new class of bio-available supplements, based on scientific research and using exacting nano-particle technology which would provide health benefits never before achieved with natural products.

The Lipolife family of products have been developed by some of the leading minds in the industry and manufactured in a European laboratory under HACCP conditions using only European sourced components.

What started with an idea in 2009 for Liposomal Vitamin C has resulted in an ever expanding range of top quality liposomal products.

What is a Liposome?

The name liposome is derived from two Greek words: 'Lipos' meaning fat and 'Soma' meaning body.

DEFINITION

An artificial microscopic vesicle consisting of an aqueous core enclosed in one or more phospholipid layers.

In other words a liposome is a tiny 'nano' sized bubble or sphere (vesicle) made from a phospholipid (in our case, phosphatidylcholine). This is the same material of which our cell membranes consist. These bubbles can be filled with substances such as Vitamin C, Glutathione or even drugs.

Liposomes have the ability to carry either water or fat-soluble payloads, which makes them an ideal delivery system.

Why Let (Liposomal Encapsulation Technology)?

The liposomal delivery system has many advantages over regular oral ingestion.

BIOAVAILABILITY

When a regular capsule or pill is ingested it must first pass from the mouth through the digestive system to finally be absorbed in the small intestine.

During this process, digestives enzymes in the mouth and stomach, digestive acids, bile salts and various gut flora degrade the nutrients before they are finally metabolised by the liver and made available to the body.

This entire process slows and reduces the nutrients' bioavailability.

Phospholipids are impervious to the various digestive juices. This makes liposomes the perfect delivery system for acid and enzyme-reactive substances.

DELIVERY

Once the liposome has reached the small intestine it is absorbed by the enterocytes of the villi. Inside the enterocytes, the liposomes are incorporated into chylomicrons. Together, they travel through the lymph system, bypassing the liver (portal circulation) into the subclavian vein.

Homemade ‘Liposomals’ Versus Lipolife Liposomals

There are many articles and websites that give recipes for making home made 'liposomal' products using ultrasonic jewellery cleaners and lecithin, it is unfortunately not that simple...

  • To make liposomes one requires very high quality phosphatidylcholine (PC) (a molecule from lecithin). Home brews are made with pure lecithin that contain very low amounts of phosphatidylcholine. Lipolife liposomals have a minimum of 200mg PC per 5ml.
