Liposomes Are at the Heart of Liposomal Encapsulation Technology. Learn What They Are, What They Do, How They Are Made
Liposomal Encapsulation Technology (LET) combines nano-technology and bio-technology in a very powerful way.Medical specialists have used Liposomal Encapsulation Technology for many years to deliver tiny amounts of therapeutic substances to specific organs or tissues without being altered and without affecting any other parts of the body.
Many health-promoting substances can be encapsulated in sub-microscopic liposomes. The liposomes not only protect the supplement from degrading conditions in the environment, but will also deliver them safe and sound to "target" organs and structures of the body.
LivOn Labs has just perfected a Vitamin C supplement, called Lypo-SphericTM Vitamin C using "Smart" Liposomal Nano-SpheresTM - a Liposomal Encapsulation Technology (LET) especially developed for food supplements.

Just like a "smart" bomb that can guide and deliver ordnance from a plane, several miles away, to a particular building and through a chosen opening and right to the desired target, "Smart" Liposomal Nano-SpheresTM protect and deliver a powerful load of Vitamin C straight to the parts of your body that needs it most.

Liposomal Encapsulation Technology makes use of a natural, little-known phenomenon that makes life, as we know it, possible. This phenomenon is the natural tendency of phospholipids to form tiny vacuoles or "bubbles" - called liposomes - when in an aqueous solution under certain conditions. The liposomes are automatically filled with whatever aqueous solution they were in before they formed. This same type of bubble, called a membrane, forms a protective barrier around virtually every cell in your body. We have harnessed this phenomenon to create sub-microscopic liposomes that are filled to the brim with liquid Vitamin C.
LivOn Labs adds a mixture of "essential phospholipids" - predominately phosphatidylcholine - to pharmaceutical-quality ascorbic acid. Then this mixture is forced through a patented nozzle jet at over 1700 p.s.i. (pounds per square inch) of pressure against a special forming plate. The high impact forces the phospholipids to form liposomes that are so small that they can only be viewed through an electron microscope.
The liposomes used in Lypo-SphericTM Vitamin C are about 300 to 400 nanometers in diameter (a nanometer is one-billionth of a meter) and are particularly suited to move quickly and efficiently to their target before releasing their contents. "Smart" Liposomal Nano-SpheresTM: The perfect Vitamin C protection and delivery system
These Vitamin C filled liposomes, because of their size and composition, provide the perfect transport system. They...
* disperse in water or beverage * quickly navigate through the digestive system * require no digestive activity prior to assimilation * rapidly absorb in the small intestine and are transported intact throughout the bloodstream to the cells that need it * release the powerful, non-degraded Vitamin C for use throughout the body as the liposomal material is metabolized by the cells requiring repair * all this without binders, fillers, gelatins, capsule materials, dyes, sweeteners, or flavorings common with tablet and capsule supplements
On the other hand, the traditional form of Vitamin C- tablet or capsule - is subject to a host of factors that can oxidize it, neutralize it, adulterate it, and even expel it before it ever gets to the cells that need it.
