What Are Liposomal Supplements?

What Are Liposomal Supplements? - Double Wood Supplements

Laura Walko |

Liposomals are the cutting edge new way to take supplements, but what does it mean?. Conditions such as stress, illness, injury, pregnancy, drug interactions, exposure to contaminants, medication or alcohol use and strenuous exercise can all lead to a depletion of vital nutrients. This increases your need for certain nutrients, making superior absorption critical. Liposomal encapsulation creates a protective barrier around tough-to-absorb water soluble nutrients so that they may reach their destination more intact and ready for absorption. 
But what are they?
Liposomes are microscopic fat soluble vehicles derived from lipids that transport vital nutrients. The human GI tract contains harsh conditions for some nutrients. Harsh acidic conditions in the gut can sometimes compromise the viability of nutrients and drug ingredients, rendering them less effective. Liposomal delivery systems encapsulate and protect active ingredients from this harsh environment until they can be delivered to the desired location. This helps to increase bioavailability and decrease gut irritation. It can also decrease the chances of drug nutrient interactions. 
Candidates for this type of delivery method are vast. Any nutrient can be delivered via liposomal encapsulation effectively. However, liposomal encapsulation is more costly, so the cost of the ingredient must be justified due to price factors along with the need for absorption. Ingredients that are less expensive or easily absorbed may not need the added benefits of liposomal encapsulation. Supplements such as vitamin C and other antioxidants are prime candidates for this supreme delivery method. 
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that helps cellular function and helps promote liver function. It has been shown to support brain health, immune system health, and liver health. Glutathione is naturally produced by the body, but depletes as we age, especially after the age of 45. Supplementation is a valuable way to boost these levels and increase bioavailability in the body. The liposomal delivery system for this particular peptide is beneficial for keeping the glutathione from being broken down by the stomach acids allowing it to more effectively enter the bloodstream. Making it one of the most effective forms of glutathione on the market.
