Liquid Liposomal Supplements
Is There a Way to Significantly Improve the Absorption of Food Supplements?
The answer: Yes, by combining them with liposomes.
What Are Liposomes?
PlantaCorp liposomes are functional nanospheres made of high-quality, GMO-free sunflower lecithins (containing >97% phospholipids). They are thus biocompatible and biodegradable. The lipid layer of our liposomes can encapsulate hydrophobic (water-repelling) ingredients. The inner aqueous core can encapsulate hydrophilic (water-loving) ingredients. This makes them good ingredient-delivery vehicles.
What Are Nanospheres?
Nanospheres are spheres of nano particle size (10 m). With our filed-for-patent, high energy ultrasonication process (LipoSone®), PlantaCorp's liposomes are maintained at an average diameter of 100 nm. This makes our liquid liposomal formulations absorbed faster by our bodies and thus, more efficient than conventional food supplements.
Liposomes Offer a Higher Bioavailability
The term bioavailability refers to the active amount of a nutrient entering the bloodstream as compared to how much was initially consumed. Studies in medicine and nutritional science have already demonstrated an increase in bioavailability using liposomes(1,2). Our own bioavailability studies with PlantaCorp-produced liposomal food supplements, demonstrated up to 46-times more bioavailability than comparable non-liposomal food supplements. This research was conducted with vitamins, minerals and plant substances encapsulated in liposomes.

Liposomes' Advantages Over Conventional Food Supplements
Liposomal encapsulation protects active ingredients (AI) from degradation, whilst in the digestive system. This allows for plant extracts, minerals and vitamins to effectively enter the blood stream, at their intended concentration. Hence, we can avoid the side effects of high-dose vitamins and minerals.
Absorption of Our Liposomal Formulations
Our body's cell membranes are composed of a phospholipid bilayer. We recreate a similar phospholipid bilayer structure in our liposomes. Liposomes are thus, easier absorbed by the intestinal wall, than non-liposomal ingredients. The encapsulated active ingredient therefore, easily reaches its destination.
Through this optimized absorption, bioavailability can be significantly increased and health results reach their optimum.
PlantaCorp's Liposomal Plant Extracts, Minerals and Vitamins are:
High in bioavailability
Efficient functional foods
Simple to orally ingest
Well suited for everyday use
