What Are Liposomes and Why Do They Matter?

Derived from the Greek words “Lipos,” meaning fat, and “Soma,” meaning body, a liposome is a microscopic pocket of fat. The walls consist of layers of phospholipids, just like the other cell membranes in our bodies. Scientists have discovered that liposomes are an effective method for delivering nutrients and other substances to the body, by essentially encapsulating the nutrients in tiny fat bubbles (liposomes).

How Do Liposomes Work?

The insulating layer of fat acts as a barrier to damaging aspects of the digestive system and allows the nutrients to reach their targets intact, resulting in a higher rate of absorption by the body’s cells. This groundbreaking advancement has many possible applications in helping to address a wide variety of nutritional needs.

The high recyclability factor of liposomes is another reason they are superior to some alternative supplements available on the market.

A Superior Nutrient Delivery System

Liposomes are not new; in fact, they were first discovered in 1961 by Dr. Alec Bangham in Cambridge. The use of liposomes to carry essential substances to cells is also not new, but they are typically made with extreme heat and high pressure, which is not optimal.

But over the last 10 years, a method of producing liposomes that doesn’t use heat, pressure, or chemicals has been discovered…one that results in vastly improved absorption levels. Utilizing this advanced technology, Vasayo brings its premium line of liposomal-based nutritional products (MicroLife Nutritionals) to you. Leveraging Advanced Delivery Technology for better absorption, Vasayo products maximize benefits and minimize waste for a healthier, happier you.*
