Liposomal Encapsulation Technology - Delivering the Goods
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, digestive 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. In a nutshell, a liposome allows the nutrient to be delivered directly to exactly where it is needed, inside the cell. This product has been developed and manufactured in a HACCP registered European laboratory using only European sourced components. Special techniques have been used to ensure the stability and efficacy of the product. You can find more information written on Vitamin C on the other Vitamin C pages.
Liposomal Vitamin C made in the UK from Quali-C (The only non-China Vitamin C)
The name liposome is derived from two Greek words: 'Lipos' meaning fat and 'Soma' meaning body.
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 this 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 of fat-soluble payloads, which makes them an ideal delivery system.
Phospholipids are amphiphilic, they consist of a hydrophilic (water-loving) head and hydrophobic (water-hating) tail.
When phospholipids are placed in an aqueous solution, the hydrophobic tails face each other avoiding the water and forming a phospholipid bilayer while the hydrophilic heads form hydrogen bonds with the water molecules. The lipid bilayer will form a closed sphere (liposome) to completely exclude water from the hydrophobic tail.

Clinical Study Absorption Results
24 healthy subjects took part in a randomised, single-blinded, cross-over study to determine the bioavailability of a single oral dose of 1g of liposomal Vitamin C compared to 1g of non-liposomal oral Vitamin C. The study consisted of two treatment periods and subjects were randomly divided into two treatment groups. In the first treatment period, Group 1 (n=12) received 5ml of liposomal Vitamin C containing 1g and Group 2 (n=12) received 5ml of non-liposomal oral Vitamin C containing 1g. In the second treatment period, Group 1 received the non-liposomal oral Vitamin C whilst Group 2 received liposomal Vitamin C. At the end of the study, the two treatment groups had been exposed to both treatments. A seven-day washout period separated both treatment periods. A baseline blood sample was drawn at 0 hours, the first treated sample was drawn 15 minutes later, followed by; 15-minute intervals until 1 hour; 30-minute intervals until 3 hours; hourly until 12 hours; 2 hourly until 16 hours; and the final sample was taken at 24 hours from baseline.
Plasma levels of Vitamin C are measured as ascorbate (µM/L). The Liposomal Vitamin C was provided by Lipolife® (Lipolife®, Drakes Lane, Boreham) and non-liposomal oral Vitamin C was provided by Curesupport (Curesupport B.V. Zutphenseweg 55, Deventer). Results from figures 1 and 2 show the oral bioavailability of 1g of liposomal Vitamin C compared to 1g of non-liposomal oral Vitamin C across a 24 and 7 hour period. At 2 hours post-treatment, liposomal Vitamin C reached plasma concentrations that were two-fold the concentration of non-liposomal oral Vitamin C at 205.1µM/L and 102.6µM/L, respectively. Cmax was achieved in both groups at four hours post-treatment with liposomal Vitamin C showing a 2.4-fold greater plasma response than non-liposomal oral Vitamin C with concentrations of 282.3 µM/L and 119 µM/L, respectively.
After 24 hours, plasma concentrations of liposomal Vitamin C remained above baseline, however, plasma concentrations of non-liposomal oral Vitamin C had fallen below baseline measurements. A single oral dose of liposomal Vitamin C showed greater absorption and peak plasma levels of ascorbate compared to non-liposomal oral Vitamin C. Furthermore, liposomal Vitamin C resulted in quicker increases in ascorbate concentration and also sustained blood levels of ascorbate over a greater period of time than non-liposomal oral Vitamin C. Oral liposomal Vitamin C is superior to non-liposomal oral Vitamin C and is able to achieve plasma levels in greater magnitude lending itself for great promise as a therapeutic agent in the targeting of chronic disease.
