Liposomes: what are they?

Liposomes are bilayer (double-layer), liquid-filled bubbles made from phospholipids. Over 50 years ago, researchers discovered that these spheres could be filled with therapeutic agents 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 with all the tails pointing toward one another and the heads facing the outside or the inside of the sphere that they have formed. Although research has not clearly shown how the therapeutic agents 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 vitamin C. 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 effective oral way to deliver nutrients.

Liquid Mineral Supplements

What makes our minerals unique
Our mineral dietary supplements are the purest minerals available on the market (up to 99.99% pure metal, magnesium, calcium, etc.) and pure water (a special double osmosis process assures absolutely pure water)…nothing more, nothing less. Each individual mineral is “processed” in a manner unique to that particular mineral; that process mimics nature’s method of turning minerals from the earth into a form useable by man. It is a process we call ‘cold fusion’.

Our minerals do not have to be refrigerated, but need to be properly stored away from microwaves, off concrete floors, in moderate temperatures and kept out of direct sunlight.
