You might have heard of a new technology called liposomal technology that has been used to increase absorption of nutrients. This occurs naturally in krill oil. The omega-3 fats are bound to phospholipids that radically increase absorption relative to fish oil.
Similarly, we can now mimic that process in the gut to improve nutrient absorption.
With liposomal technology, the phospholipids in the capsule can form liposomes in the stomach. Studies show the movement of water is sufficient to create some liposomes. Stresses are high in the stomach, with stomach fluids in near constant motion, which could create an even greater amount of liposomes. Since liposomes can help the nutrient gain entry across your gut membrane to its target organs and cells, more liposomes could lead to an increased rate of absorption.
The research is now quite clear that one of the best and most practical ways to supplement your diet with oral vitamin C is with a liposomal form of vitamin C.
Advantages of Liposomal Absorption
Liposomal absorption is quite different from intestinal absorption.
With intestinal absorption:
In order for your food and nutrients to be used, they first have to be broken down by your digestive system
Once they are broken down to smaller fragments, your body can then absorb them
Finally, these nutrients enter your bloodstream and your body is able to utilise them.
But with liposomal technology:
The tiny particles of the phospholipid-coated nutrient create molecules of vitamin C coated with a substance similar to the cell walls themselves.
The coated vitamin C molecules can more readily be absorbed.
With a portion of the vitamin C becoming encapsulated by liposomes formed in the gut, these molecules are more easily able to slip through the cell walls, increasing absorption.
Plus, this liposomal technology helps reduce the potential gastrointestinal distress that can accompany high doses of traditional oral vitamin C. And scientific research suggests that liposomal vitamin C may increase bioavailability over what was previously thought possible.
