Are Liposomal Vitamins Really Better?

Is it better to take Vitamins in the form of Liposomal Pills or Liquid?

In reality, dry liposomes don’t exist. The surface tension of the water keeps liposomes together. Thus they only exist in liquid form. Moreover, ingestible liquids are also easier to dose.  

What is the percentage of liposomal absorption in comparison to the traditional type of vitamins?

The increase in the absorption rate and bioavailability largely depends on two factors:

  • The quality of liposome in the specific product
  • Active ingredient features

In general, target cells may receive 96 percent of the content through high-quality liposomes. This is, however, unrelated to circumstances and quantity ingested. Likewise, the increase in bioavailability is dependent on how much the loss of natural active or traditionally formulated ingredients is.

Bioavailability—What is it?

It is primarily the active ingredient percentage that reaches physiological utilization in the organism. It is expressed as an average because The circumstances of consumption have the potential to affect the bioavailability of the active ingredients.

Can also vitamins be packed in liposomal technology?

No. This is predominantly a technological issue. Only some vitamins like vitamin B, C, D, and K and several other kinds of trace elements can be packed in liposomal technology. In other words, many substances are suitable for liposomal technology, while others are not. This is unrelated to their natural or synthetic origin

What amount of active ingredients absorption increase in the bloodstream?

Although there is not much evidence, a study claims that 1.000mg Vitamin C if orally ingested through liposomal technology equals to 5.000mg administered blood plasma levels.

Is there any active liposomal active ingredients list?

No, ingredients have to be checked product by product and individually.

Can we use vitamins packed in Liposomal technology every day?

Yes. More than any liquid form. You can get many active ingredients in some liposomal products instead of taking 2 or 3 other conventionally formulated products.

What is the downside or disadvantage of Liposomal vitamins? 

Perhaps the only downside is the cost. As compared to traditionally manufactured products, liposomal is slightly costly. But you might find it cost-efficient if you need an elevated amount of active ingredients. One liposomal product may substitute two or three traditional products, thereby saving you on the extra cost incurred to purchase more traditional products. 

Moreover, as liposomal vitamins contain vegetal lecithin, it is recommended that you first consult your doctor. Though lecithin is a useful nutrient for brain cells, some people are allergic to it. 

Can we mix liposomal products in drinks or food?

Yes. They can be easily mixed with most types of drinks like juice, water, dairy products, fizzy drinks, and tea. However, please note because of their active ingredients, they can’t be mixed with certain beverages such as:

  • Alcoholic drinks
  • Very hot liquids
  • Coffee
  • Coke

Do you think Liposomal technology is the future of vitamins?

This largely depends on the type of vitamin consumption. For example, in some countries, a high dosage of vitamin C is used to complement the therapy provided to cancer patients. However, in some countries, this is not advisable. Therefore, if a high dosage of vitamin C were unanimously acceptable, then indeed liposomal technology would be the future of vitamins. Nonetheless, it can be said that liposomal technology is a breakthrough when it comes to the absorption of vitamins like vitamin B, C, D, and K.
