What sets ProHealth's Lypo-Absorb Vitamin C apart from other forms of vitamin C?
Lypo-Absorb Vitamin C utilizes liposomes, the most effective delivery method for dietary nutrients. Liposomes are microscopic liquid-filled bubbles composed of phospholipids (a class of fats), which just happen to be the same material that makes up the membranes of your cells. These bubbles can be filled with liquid nutrients and used to deliver those nutrients directly into the appropriate cells, avoiding the degradation caused by the digestive system. In fact, a 2008 study found that vitamin C encapsulated in a liposome was nearly twice as effective at increasing plasma vitamin C levels compared to other forms of vitamin C.
How do liposomes work?
The way liposomes are constructed is the key to why they make such an amazing nutrient delivery system. Liposomal spheres are made up of a double layer of phospholipids with a liquid center. Each phospholipid molecule has a round head that is hydrophilic (loves water) and a double tail that is hydrophobic (hates water).
The magic happens when these phospholipid molecules are introduced into a water-based environment. The phospholipid heads are attracted to the water so they naturally gather themselves together to form an outer surface that faces the water. The tails, which are repelled by water, face the opposite direction. Because liposomes have liquid centers, a second layer of phospholipid heads line up facing the inside of the cell, attracted to the water there. This leaves the phospholipid tails of the two layers facing each other. The resulting structure is the double-layered, bubble-like membrane we know as a liposome.
Since liposomes are composed of the same material as most cell membranes, your body recognizes and accepts them as a friendly substance, allowing them to be easily absorbed into the bloodstream. Once there, they circulate throughout your body, merging with your cell membranes and releasing their nutritional contents directly into your cells. As a result, your body gets the maximum amount of pure, non-degraded nutrition with optimal cellular bioavailability.
