The capsule used in lypospheric vitamin C is made up of materials called liposomes. These fatty acids have a hydrophilic (water-loving) head and a hydrophobic (water-fearing) tail.

Chemical Bonding

When these chemicals bond, the tails align end to end, leaving the heads exposed on the inside and outside of the capsule. The result is a strong wall that encases and protects the material within. A similar protein coating can be found in the cell walls of the human body.

Liposome Coating

Because the liposome coating is similar to the cellular walls occurring naturally in human beings, studies demonstrate that lypospheric encapsulation is a more efficient means of getting essential nutrients to the blood stream than naturally occurring transport methods. The theory underlying this transport mechanism’s efficacy is relatively simple. Because the cells require liposomes to repair damage from wear and tear, as the lypospherically-encapsulated substance passes through the body, the lypospheric coating is “stolen” from the nutrient capsule to rebuild the cellular walls. As the coating is stripped away, the nutrient within is released, permitting it to move freely about within the body.

Lypospheric Encapsulation

Lypospheric encapsulation appears to bypass the transport mechanism in the small intestine by which Vitamin C and other nutrients are typically absorbed, allowing the nutrients to more easily and effectively transfer through the intestinal membrane and into the bloodstream. Within the bloodstream, the breakdown of the liposome coating begins, making the nutrient within more available to the human body.

Lypospheric Encapsulation VS. Pills and Powders

Clinical studies demonstrate that with vitamin C ingested in pill or powder form, as the dosage increases, the amount of the nutrient available to the body actually decreases. One theory for why this is so involves the protein transport system which ferries vitamin C from the small intestine into the bloodstream. Because only so much of that protein is available at any given time, only so much of the vitamin can get through to the bloodstream where it can be transported throughout the body. This is referred to as “bio-availability.” Studies show that lypospheric encapsulation of essential nutrients may actually produce bio-availability roughly equivalent to having the nutrients injected directly into the bloodstream, making it much more efficient and useful to the body than conventional ingestion and a great deal simpler for the average user than injection.
