Everything you need to know about liposomal supplements
There are many factors to consider when choosing a supplement. This includes personal preference, medical history, and most importantly, how effective it will be. And the effectiveness of a supplement has is dependent on one very important factor – absorption.
Traditional supplement forms, like capsules and tablets, endure a lot in the digestive system before they can be absorbed and used by the body. Those with digestive issues, low stomach acid, and problems with liver metabolism, may not be able to break down and absorb traditional supplement forms like capsules and tablets as effectively. This makes it harder for individuals with these conditions to actually benefit from the nutrients contained within the supplement.
That’s where liposomals come in. Liposomals use an advanced nutrient delivery system that swiftly and safely transports nutrients direct-to-cell allowing for a smaller, more effective dose that lasts all day. So, let’s dive into why they’re unique, how they deliver nutrients, and what makes them effective!
What makes liposomals different from traditional supplement formats?
In order for us to benefit from the nutrients within a supplement, they need to be able to pass through the intestinal lining to reach our cells, where our bodies are able to use them. Factors like digestive issues, low stomach acid, bacterial enzymes, and liver metabolism can be an obstacle when it comes to absorbing nutrients. And if the supplement becomes too degraded while travelling through the digestive system, our body can’t absorb enough of the nutrient by the time it reaches the intestine to reap the benefits.
However, with liposomal supplements, the nutrients are carried directly to the cells by nano-sized spherical containers or vesicles called liposomes. These vesicles are protected by a phospholipid double layer – the same stuff our cells are made from. This phospholipid structure acts as a bubble around the nutrients and protects them from the surrounding environment within the cell. Since this structure is semi-permeable, it allows essential nutrients to enter, but keeps out unwanted toxic substances. This ensures that the nutrients inside the liposomes are well-protected and easily absorbed.
How do liposomal supplements work?
Within the vesicles are nano-sized containers called micelles. The micelles carry the nutrients from the supplement directly to our cells and tissues. And the protection provided by the phospholipid double layer helps keep them intact until they reach their target site. This means that a higher percentage of the supplement can be used by the body. It also means that liposomal supplements offer a quick and effective nutrient delivery process.
What kinds of nutrients benefit from this format?
Liposomals are known for their speedy nutrient delivery system, and there are some nutrients that particularly benefit from being taken as a liposomal.
Let’s take vitamin C for example. In situations where you would need to take a large dose of vitamin C, a traditional supplement form can result in gastrointestinal upset, like diarrhea. This happens because the excess vitamin C that’s not absorbed by the body irritates the gastrointestinal tract, causing discomfort. But when taken in liposomal form, you have a much lower chance of experiencing digestive upset since the liposomes don’t degrade and stay whole until it’s time for them to be absorbed in the small intestine.
What makes CanPrev's liposomals unique?
We’ve put a lot of thought into creating our liposomal supplements. And there are a couple of different reasons why they’re unique:
- Smaller, more effective doses – CanPrev Liposomals have multiple layers of liposomes (like an onion). As each phospholipid layer is peeled away, the liposomes slowly release nutrients over a longer period of time. Through this sustained-release effect, your dose lasts the entire day.
- Increased efficacy and results – With these extra layers of protection, our liposomal supplements are also less likely to degrade or get lost in the digestive tract. This means they’re able to reach your cells before releasing the contents within them.
- Convenient consumption – Fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K, are best absorbed with food. Other nutrients like iron, should be taken on an empty stomach. But CanPrev’s liposomals are absorbable enough on their own and can be taken with or without food.
- Great for those with digestive issues – CanPrev packages its active ingredients in pre-digested micelles, making them easily absorbable, especially for those with digestive issues.
With CanPrev Liposomals, your nutrients arrive safely, start working immediately and last the entire day. What could be better than that?
