How do Liposomal Vitamins Work?
The heart of liposomal encapsulation technology comes down to liposomes. Liposomal Encapsulation Technology consists of microscopic healthy fat particles which are made up of phospholipids along with water soluble vitamins and minerals. The composition and size of the liposomes are important to allow them to deliver small amounts of nutrients, vitamins and bioactive compounds through the bloodstream down to intracellular level. Liposomal encapsulation process enables vitamins and other compounds to pass through the digestive system intact without getting affected by the digestive juices, overcome cellular absorption barriers and deliver nutrients effectively through the bloodstream into the cells where they are needed most.
Liposomal Encapsulation Technology - Clinical Trials, Studies & Reports by Doctors, Consultants & Experts
A number of highly experience doctors and consultants have been involved in numerous tests and research about the effectiveness of liposomal encapsulation technology, here are some additional resources for your information.
Dr. Thomas E. Levy – Cardiologist & Author of Primal Panacea is a highly respected expert in the area of vitamin C as well as a qualified lawyer, Dr Levy works as a consultant to LivOn Labs who manafacture high quality liposomal encapsulation products.
"Comparing the bioavailability of all other oral vitamin C delivery with Altrient’s oral liposomal delivery is like comparing a squirt gun to a fire hose. Not only am I convinced that the efficacy of Altrient vitamin C far surpasses any traditional oral vitamin C supplement, but my recent personal experience with it suggests that it may sometimes be better than IV injection"
Katy Sunassee, the editor of well known beauty publication Top Sante, took 3 sachets of Altrient C a day for 3 months and the results stunned everyone.
- Skin elasticity increased by 89% (the person doing the testing said this was the greatest increase he had ever seen)
- Collagen increased by 39%
- Hydration increased by 17%
- TEWL decreased by 16%
- Erythema reduced by 16%

Dr. Steve Hickey, Dr Hillary Roberts (Ascorbate: The Science of Vitamin C) carried out a study of vitamin C. Following this Dr Hickey along with Dr Andrew Saul later conducting a study on the absorption and saturation of levels of vitamin C in the body.
The National Institute of Health in the US has previously stated the body can only absorb approximately 220 μM/L of vitamin C through supplementation. In a small study, Drs. Hickey and Roberts used single 36g doses of liposomal Vitamin C from LivOn Labs to achieve plasma levels of 417 μM/L, refuting the NIH’s proposed maximum level of saturation. Dr. Johan Bolhuis used a single 6g dose of liposomal Vitamin C from LivOn Labs and achieved 204 μM/L. Dr. Bolhuis also tested multiple combinations of standard oral vitamin C and liposomal vitamin C, and these measurements resulted in plasma levels of 512 – 579 μM/L. These results support the prediction of Drs. Hickey and Roberts that vitamin C plasma levels of 500 – 600 μM/L can be attained and sustained.
A third party, double blind, placebo controlled skin study carried out by Princeton Consumer Research in 2014 showed a significant increase in skin elasticity over 16 weeks by taking 3 sachets of Altrient vitamin C a day, whilst those on the placebo showed no increase at all. Skin elasticity increased by 61.4%.

Liposomes form a microscopic bubble made from layers of special types of molecules known as phospholipids. It is a membrane, very similar to the type of membrane that surrounds the cells within your body. This membrane contains and protects whatever substance is inside.
Many years ago, researchers discovered that these liposomes could be filled with therapeutic agents and nutrients. The membrane would hold in the substance while the supplement was ingested and would not release it until it had reached the appropriate tissues or body part.
This incredible technology works because of a natural phenomenon that actually makes life as we know it possible. This is the natural behaviour of phospholipids to form tiny bubbles when they are within an aqueous solution under the right conditions. These small bubbles are called "liposomes" and they become automatically filled with the aqueous solution that they were in before they were formed. So, for example, when they are within a Vitamin C supplement solution they become filled to the brim with liquid Vitamin C. These little bubbles of liposomal vitamin c stay intact until they are delivered directly to the right part of the body.
Several different healthy substances, such as vitamins, minerals and other supplements can be encapsulated within these liposome membranes. They are designed not only to protect the nutritional supplement from degrading conditions within the environment, but also to deliver the nutrients in a targeted manner to specific structures of the body.
In order to make these highly sophisticated supplements, LivOn Labs will initially create a mixture consisting of essential phospholipids (primarily phosphatidylcholine) to pharmaceutical-quality sodium ascorbic. In the next step this mixture will be sprayed through a nozzle jet at a pressure of more than 1700 pounds per square inch onto a specially designed forming plate. This extremely high impact is what causes the phospholipids to form their liposomes. These liposomes are so incredibly small that they can only be viewed through an electron microscope. The smaller they are, the better, as this means that they are more suited to moving quickly and efficiently to their target before they release their contents.
Altrient is designed to deliver vitamins and nutrients directly to the parts of your body that need it the most. This type of liposomal encapsulation technology is the most elegant and efficient oral delivery system that has ever been developed to date.
These small liposomes filled with vitamins and minerals provide the perfect transport system for a number of reasons. They will initially disperse in the water or beverage and then quickly navigate through the digestive system. They don’t require any digestive activity as they will rapidly absorb into the small intestine and be transported by the bloodstream intact. They will be delivered directly to the cells that need it throughout the body. This is much more effective than other oral suplements which are very likely to be oxidized, neutralised and even expelled before it reaches the cells that need it.
The powerful and non-degraded vitamins and minerals will be absorbed and metabolised by the cells that need it, without the use of any fillers, binders, gelatin, sweeteners, dyes, capsule materials or flavourings that are commonly used in other supplements.
