The Health Benefits of Taking Liposomals
Have you ever wondered how your body absorbs nutrients? The food you eat and the supplements you take go through a long process involving the harsh environment of your digestive tract. Since there are many factors at play, such as digestive issues, low stomach acid, or bacterial enzymes, your body may not always reap all the benefits of what goes in.
That’s where liposomal supplements come in.
What are liposomal supplements?
Liposomal supplements are known for their advanced nutrient delivery system. They use liposomes, which are nano-sized spherical containers or vesicles, to carry and transport nutrients directly to your cells and tissues. These vesicles are protected by a phospholipid double layer, just like our cell membranes.
What is a phospholipid?
A phospholipid structure acts as a bubble around the nutrients and protects them from the outside environment. An individual phospholipid consists of a hydrophilic (water-loving) head and a hydrophobic (fat-loving) tail. Phospholipids are arranged in a double layer with the hydrophilic heads facing the outside and the hydrophobic tails facing the inside.
This structure is semi-permeable, meaning that it allows essential nutrients to enter, but keeps out unwanted toxic substances that can exist in the water-based environment surrounding the cell. This ensures that the nutrients inside the liposomes are well-protected and easily absorbed when the time comes.
Regular supplements vs. Liposomal supplements
People with digestive issues may have a harder time absorbing nutrients through traditional supplement forms such as tablets and capsules. In order for us to benefit from regular supplements, the nutrients must pass through the intestinal lining to reach our cells. Factors such as digestive issues, low stomach acid, bacterial enzymes, and liver metabolism can hinder proper absorption. And if the supplement degrades too much during digestion, our body won’t be able to absorb enough of the nutrients to benefit from it.
What are the health benefits of taking liposomals?
In a liposomal supplement, the nutrients are stored within the vesicle in nano-sized containers known as micelles. Micelles are responsible for carrying water-soluble and fat-soluble material directly to our cells and tissues. What protects them on their journey is the phospholipid structure. This fatty acid membrane helps them remain intact until they reach their final destination. This means a higher percentage of the supplement can be used by your body.
What makes CanPrev’s liposomals so effective?
At CanPrev, we’ve put a lot of thought into creating our unique liposomal supplements. Here are some reasons why they’re great:
Smaller, more effective doses
Unlike regular liposomal supplements, 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. And because liposomal supplements are made up of the same structure as cell membranes, they’re more easily recognized and used by the cells in your body.
Some vitamins, like fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K, are best absorbed with food. Other nutrients such as iron, should be taken on an empty stomach since it competes with other minerals for absorption. With all these factors to remember, it may be hard to create a steady supplement routine. But CanPrev’s liposomals are absorbable enough on their own and can be taken with or without food.
Great for those with digestive issues
Capsules and tablets need to be broken down by digestive enzymes in order to be used by the body. And that can be compromised by certain digestive conditions or chronic stress, which impacts nutrient absorption. However, liposomes remain whole until they reach the small intestine, where they are absorbed directly through the intestinal walls. CanPrev packages its active ingredients in pre-digested micelles, making them easily absorbable, especially for those with digestive issues.
With CanPrev Liposomals, the nutrients arrive safely, start working immediately and last the entire day. Check out Coenzyme Q10 for your cardiovascular health needs and Vitamin C for stronger immunity.
