Limosomal Technology: The ultimate health benefit!
The advantages of liposome technology are being discovered by research teams all over the world. Here is all you need to know!
When an active substance is encapsulated in a liposome, it can be protected from rapid degradation and elimination in the body. The substance is therefore able to circulate inside the body for a longer period of time. This will increase the likelihood that the active substance will enter the target tissues and cells.
While the administration of liposomal medicines into the bloodstream can be a very clear and direct way to target diseased sites in the body, oral administration is often preferable as a less invasive administration route. A great deal of research effort has been undertaken to engineer liposomes that pass through the stomach and intestine in an intact form, showing that in some cases the biological availability of orally administered active substances can indeed be enhanced.
Liposomes are usually made of naturally-derived starting materials. They are essentially non-toxic and biologically degradable. They have the unique ability to hold active substances – including medicines and supplements – both in their aqueous interior as well as their lipid bilayer. This makes liposomes attractive as drug delivery systems.
Studies reveal that liposomes – harnessing their ability to encapsulate and transport active ingredients – can increase the bioavailability and target delivery of these ingredients in the body.
