Liposomes are microscopic single- to multi-layer spheres made of phospholipids (the basic building blocks of cell membranes). Phospholipids encapsulate a compound, such as glutathione, in order to bypass the digestive processes that normally degrade or limit the compounds' absorption. Liposomes demonstrate the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, deposit their cargo intracellularly, and enhance lymphatic circulation of therapeutic compounds. Additionally, the phospholipids which compose the liposome fuse with and feed the cell membranes. Providing phospholipids in this way ensures proper membrane function to facilitate the absorption of nutrients and the excretion of cellular waste products and toxins. In fact, phospholipid therapy, using both injectable forms and oral forms, has a long and solid clinical history for repair and maintenance of liver function, circulatory health, and neurological health.
At their highest expression, liposomes
bring the power of intravenous therapy into a convenient oral delivery.
However, all liposomes are not created equally. Most liposomes on the
market use low grades of phospholipids (e.g. raw lecithin) instead of
the high-phosphatidylcholine phospholipid mixes necessary for a good
liposome. Nutraceutical manufacturers also typically use cheap shear
methods resulting in large (200–600nm), poorly-absorbed particles.
Quicksilver’s Etheric Delivery™ Phospholipid Encapsulation System improves upon basic liposomal Delivery technology
with smaller, more stable, tightly distributed single-layer spheres
(called unilamellar vessicles) made from the highest-grade ingredients
available. These small vessicles begin absorbing as soon as
they hit your mouth so you can get high absorption before they are
altered by the harsh processes in the intestines. Quicksilver Scientific
uses the same high-tech equipments, rigorous processes, and tight
particle size controls used by pharmaceutical companies. Don't settle
for the low grade products now flooding the market, and certainly don't
fall for the ploy that you can make your own "bathtub gin" with a
blender and a sonic jewelery cleaner! Look for the clear difference of
Quicksilver Scientific's Etheric Delivery™ products. Our liposomal
vitamins (like the totally unique liposomal B-Complex) are superior.
