Why Liposomal Minerals

Bioavailability is the degree to which nutrients from food and supplements become available in the tissues and bloodstreams.

The liposomal bubbles protect the nutrients from the oxidative damage caused by free radicals and the bubbles  take care that the nutrients arrive at the proper place by delivering the nutrients to the cells. Result, higher bioavailability.

When taken a traditional non liposomal supplement the active ingredient (for example, Vitamin C) is broken down during the process of digestion. The nutrients are being decomposed in the acidic stomach and digestive enzymes and intestinal microbes do their work. The result is that only  a small part of the nutrients become available in the cells to absorb.

It is tempting to start using the traditional supplement in larger doses, but that may cause for instance, digestive problems like bloating, pain in the abdomen and diarrhoea.

We can all avoid that by using liposomal food supplements and have the higher Bioavailability at the same time.



Using liposomal supplements may have a big difference in the health, because they help:

  • To Improve the bioavailability of nutrients
  • To protect nutrients from the elements of the gastrointestinal tract
  • To improve the uptake and absorption of nutrients by the cells

To minimize potential side-effects associated with regular oral supplements (tablets, pills and powders). Our liquid form of liposomal is especially handy for people who have problems with swallowing tablets or capsules.

This form is also very easy to use, just add it to some orange or apple juice for instance.

Our liposomal products do not contain magnesium stearate which is used sometimes in traditional tablets. The disadvantage of magnesium stearate is that it tends to decrease the absorption of some nutrients.

Our premium products are stable and have a shelf life of 2 years!
