For already some time, liposomes have been enjoying a steadily growing popularity. The advantages are simple: liposomes serve as a means of transporting active ingredients to supply the body with essential nutrients. Liposomal products have a significantly higher bioavailability (absorption) and are also better tolerated than conventional food supplements. 

Liposomes are the solution for efficient nutrient absorption!

1. What Are Liposomes?

The term liposome is derived from the Greek words "lipos" for fat and "soma" for body. The word also describes the properties of liposomes. The words give a sneak peek into what a liposome is: a small, circular body (vesicle) with both fat- and water-soluble properties.

Liposomes are lipid vesicles made of phospholipids arranged in a row, forming a double membrane. A structure arranged in this way is also present in the cell membranes of the human body. Both in their liquid centre and within their fat-soluble double membrane, liposomes can enclose and transport different substances regardless of their size or structure. 

The liposomal shield protects the transported substances from the body's own enzymes of the digestive tract and also from gastric acid.

When taking conventional pills and powders, the absorption of the active ingredient is frequently impaired. This causes low bioavailability of the ingredient. For example, the body typically absorbs only 2% of 500mcg of Vitamin B12.

Stomach acid has pH-changing properties to protect our body from harmful bacteria and to process dietary fibres. This acid not only affects our tissues, but also the active ingredients, fluids and foods we take in. 

Liposomal encapsulation forms a protective shield around the nutrient so that the active ingredient does not come into contact with the stomach acid and is therefore not restricted in its absorption. The active ingredient is protected in a double membrane of phospholipids, liposomes can fuse directly with human cell membranes because they have the same structure. Through this hidden transport, the active substances encased in the liposomes enter our bloodstream without loss of effect.

2. How Are Liposomes Produced?

The liposomal formulations are based on a natural phenomenon. Under certain conditions, phospholipids enclose substances in a lipid vesicle. Whether these substances are vitamins, minerals or micronutrients is unimportant for the liposome. 

We use 96% pure phospholipids of plant origin as the basic building blocks for our liposomes. We obtain these from European GMO-free sunflower seeds. This corresponds to the highest degree of purity available on the market. 

To produce the liposomes, we use ultrasound as a gentle energy source. In this phase of creation, the active ingredients can be enclosed by the liposomes and thus safely stored within them.

By supplying a special kind of energy, the phospholipids arrange themselves in the formation of double membranes, which is similar to the human cell membrane. The liposomes are surrounded by an aqueous solution. 

The fat-loving heads of the phospholipids are directed inwards and the water-loving heads are directed outwards towards the surrounding water solution.

In order to arrange properly, phospholipids must be surrounded by water. Only then they would form a spherical structure.

This chemical reaction has already created the liposome.

3. Why Buy Liposomal Products?

Clinical studies have proven it: The bioavailability, i.e. the effective absorption of the active substance by our body, can be increased by a whole 3000% with liposomal food supplements

The destination of every active ingredient that we take in through food supplements is the cells in our tissue, which are to be reached via the bloodstream. 

Only this way the nutrients can develop their optimal effect in the right places of our body and give us new vitality.

The principle of the liposomal ActiNovo products: Easy to take, good absorption!  

Our goal is to offer liposomal food supplements of exceptional quality at a fair price. Our studies show this promise of quality!

5. In Summary: The Three Properties Of A Liposome

1. Encapsulation 

The nutrient is enclosed in liposomes, which are similar in structure to human cells!

2. Protection & Transport 

Liposomes protect and transport the nutrient into the body cells. At the same time, the encapsulated active ingredient is not damaged by external influences!

3. Efficiency promise 

Liposomal formulations ensure the absorption of the nutrient into the bloodstream and guarantee a high level of effectiveness!
