In short, Lypo-SphericTM Technology is our brand name for liposomal encapsulation.
Years ago, researchers discovered that liposomes could be filled with therapeutic agents to deliver these agents to the delivery these agents into the blood, and even into specific cells. . LivOn Labs concluded that if this delivery method was being used to deliver pharmaceuticals, nutritional supplements were a “natural” (pun intended) fit for the technology. Without liposomal encapsulation, traditional supplements like tablets, capsules, powders and even some nutrients from your diet, are not processed and absorbed efficiently by your body and are passed as waste.
So, What is a Liposome?
A liposome is a microscopic bubble made from two layers of specialized molecules called phospholipids. This double-layer membrane is nearly identical to the membrane that surrounds each cell in the body. Just as a cell membrane keeps the contents of the cell inside and intact, a liposome can “contain” and protect whatever substance is placed inside its membrane. This identical structure not only protects the contents, but allows the liposome to seamlessly transfer therapeutic agents into cells in the body – maximizing the absorption of nutrients.
So, Liposomes are Like Taxis… Delivering Nutrients to Cells?
Yes! But, liposomes offer more than just another ride on your body’s internal highway. The high-quality phospholipids, including Phosphatidylcholine, that LivOn Labs uses to create liposomes in Lypo-Spheric™ products, offer a host of benefits. From maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system, to supporting the reproductive, immune, and nervous systems*, our liposomes do more than just deliver nutrients. Encapsulating nutrients in liposomes gives your body a powerful 1 -2 punch.
