What Does Liposomal Mean?

There's a fancy new word going around the supplement world: Liposomal.

 

If you're wondering what the heck that means, you're not alone. Here's an uber simplified summary for you. 

 

Many nutrients are either difficult to absorb in our digestion (think B12) or water soluble, meaning they are quickly flushed out in our urine after ingestion (think Vitamin C). 

 

Liposomal technology essentially coats these nutrients in a fat layer. This allows our digestion to absorb the liposome in the part of our digestive tract where we would absorb any dietary food (like when we eat nuts, seeds or avocado). 

 

It also helps keep the nutrient in circulation longer, and prevents nutrients that are typically water soluble from being quickly flushed out of the system.  

 

In summary: the key benefits of making a common nutrient "liposomal" is faster absorption and helping us keep the nutrient in our system longer to reap the benefits.
