Delivering nutrients where they count

Liposomes are a specialized form of nutritional supplements designed to enhance the absorption and bioavailability of specific vitamins, minerals, and other beneficial compounds within the body. These nutrients are encapsulated within tiny lipid (fat-based) spheres known as Liposomes. The liposomal structure mimics the body's cell membranes, allowing the nutrients to be more efficiently transported through the digestive system and into the bloodstream.

The main goal of liposomal nutrient delivery is to overcome the challenges posed by the body's natural barriers to absorption. Traditional forms of supplements, such as pills or capsules, can sometimes be less effective due to factors like poor solubility, degradation in the digestive tract, and limited absorption in the intestines.

What is Liposome?

Liposomes are lipid vesicles made of phospholipids linked together to form a double membrane. Liposomes brought a very interesting proposition to lipid deliveries: the phospholipids are arranged in spherical cell membrane–like lipid bilayers with their water-loving 'heads' facing the aqueous medium and their fatty 'tails' tucked together. These structures create pockets of trapped water along with water soluble compounds and the potential to protect them from hostile digestive conditions and potentially facilitate gastrointestinal (GI) uptake.

Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) Analysis

Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) plays a significant role in the analysis of Liposomes. It enables precise visualization of Liposomes, revealing their size, structure, and morphology. At Botanic Healthcare, we test every batch to ensure the formation of Liposomes.

Key Advantages

High bioavailability and absorption compared with other oral forms of supplements.

Micronized encapsulation protects against the harsh environment of the GI tract and increases transmucosal (oral) uptake and absorption .

Increased intracellular delivery.

Can hold both hydrophilic and hydrophobic compounds
