What are Liposomes?

Liposomes are bilayer (double-layer), liquid-filled bubbles made from phospholipids. Over 50 years ago, researchers discovered that these spheres could be filled with nutrients and used to protect and deliver these agents into the body and even into specific cells of the body.

The bilayer structure of liposomes is nearly identical to the bilayer construction of the cell membranes that surround each of the cells in the human body. This occurs because of the unique composition of phospholipids. The phosphate (source of "phospho" in phospholipid) head of phospholipids is hydrophilic — it loves water — whereas the fatty-acid tails (lipids) are hydrophobic — they hate water.

When phospholipids find themselves in a water-based solution, the hydrophobic tails quickly move to distance themselves from the liquid just like oil separates from vinegar. So, as all the tails turn inward and all the heads turn toward the liquid, they form a double-layered membrane.

Liposome

Although research has not clearly shown how the nutrients in a liposome are actually released, there are a couple of theories. One theory suggests that the phospholipids are processed in the liver as fats and that this process releases the nutrient. Another theory proposes that cells all over the body, hungry for phospholipid materials to repair cell membranes and other cellular structures, "steal" these materials from the liposome allowing their contents to leak out.

Quite possibly both processes occur. In any case, the therapeutic value and greatly increased delivery of liposome-encapsulated drugs and nutrients has been scientifically confirmed countless times. At present, liposomes are the most bioavailable oral way to deliver nutrients.

Q & Answers

  • would this product be more effective than the capsule form? Thanks Jenny
  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Seeking Health regarding the Optimal Liposomal L-5-MTHF. The B vitamins are typically better absorbed in a sublingual or liquid  form than in capsule form because they can begin the breakdown and absorption process in the salivary enzymes and through the blood vessels in the mouth rather further down the disgestive tract, when the capsule breaks open. That said, the L-5-MTHF capsules can be broken open and the contents emptied out directly into the mouth or under the tongue in order to benefit from the sublingual method of administration. The B vitamins in general typically do not have a very pleasant taste, but this is an option for enhanced absorption. I hope this helps. Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance.
