For practical reasons, most supplements are consumed orally. This means that the vitamins, minerals or botanicals must pass through the entire length of the gastrointestinal tract, starting with the mouth, the stomach and finally in to the intestines for absorption. Unfortunately, unprotected substances are often damaged in this way due to the digestive enzymes in the mouth or the harsh, acidic environment of the stomach. Even if they manage to survive their journey to the intestine, it is possible that the intestinal wall can only absorb a part of the product.
In our liquid liposomal formulations, active ingredients pass through the mouth and stomach, largely unharmed, thanks to the encapsulation of the ingredients in liposomes. Upon intestinal absorption, PlantaCorp liposomes are diverted towards the intestinal lymphatic system and not into the portal vein. This means that rather than passing through the liver, the liposome-encapsulated ingredient directly reaches the blood stream. Therefore, the active ingredients reach the bloodstream without passing the liver, which causes an increase in bioavailability.
You can read more about the liposome absorption process on our blog.
Liposomes are produced in a liquid atmosphere. When liposomal formulations are dried, the structure of the liposomes can no longer be maintained, and the liposomes dissociate.
We conducted a bioavailability study that compared liquid and powder forms of vitamin C. This study proved that the bioavailability of the powdered liposomal form was as poor as a non-liposomal powder product. In comparison, the liquid liposomal vit. C had a very high bioavailability.

Please contact our Business Development Team to know more about our white labeling and contract manufacturing services.
This completely depends on the product. A key factor influencing the amount of an active ingredient that a formulation can have is its water solubility.
Other factors to take into consideration include:
- The ratio between active substance and phospholipid
- The physical properties of each ingredient- pH, solubility (in water or fat)
